New Recording and Fail-Safe Features for Matrox Maevex H.264 Encoders/Decoders to be Demonstrated at ISE and DSE 2014

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Montreal (PRWEB) January 30, 2014 Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced three important new features for Matrox Maevex™ 5100 Series H.264 encoders/decoders that will be demonstrated for the first time at upcoming tradeshows including Integrated Systems Europe 2014 (Amsterdam RAI, Feb. 4-6, stand 11-M66) and Digital Signage Expo 2014 (Las Vegas, Feb. 12-13, booth 348).

Maevex encoders will soon support high quality H.264 video recording to a network-shared drive or network-attached storage (NAS) at resolutions up to Full HD 1080p60 with zero-latency pass-through of the video and audio signals, making it ideal for medical, transportation, military and surveillance applications.

Maevex decoders will soon provide a built-in fail-safe mode to ensure that pre-recorded digital signage content will automatically play on screen in the event of a lost network connection that interrupts streaming from a Maevex encoder. Clients can store the pre-recorded image or video clip in the decoder’s internal flash memory. When network connectivity is restored, the Maevex decoder reverts to the streaming content.

Maevex encoders bring another enhancement to digital signage applications. In addition to streaming to Maevex hardware decoders, Maevex encoders can be used to stream directly to digital signage software players such as those from DISE.

“Matrox Maevex 5100 Series encode/decode systems are in wide use for video distribution over standard IP networks for collaborative video walls, manufacturing and automation, process control, digital signage and many other applications,” said Ron Berty, business development manager, Matrox Graphics. “The addition of high-quality video recording at up to 1080p60, plus fail-safe protection and support for software digital signage players, make Maevex even more versatile, providing a complete, cost-effective, multi-functional H.264 encoding/decoding/recording solution.” Maevex H.264 encoders and decoders capture, stream, and decode video from a variety of sources for video distribution over IP and even allow for software-based decoding on non-Maevex devices. Bitrates are user definable between 100Kbps and 25Mbps allowing for multiple streams on both 100Mb and 1000Mb standard networks. Alternatively, the Maevex encoder functions as a video recorder, capturing MP4 files to NAS at resolutions up to 1080p60 for later review. Maevex units come bundled with Matrox PowerStream™ software, allowing for easy remote management of Maevex devices and enabling a wide variety of user-defined stream-management or recoding features.

Price and availability Priced at $999 US not including local taxes and delivery, the Matrox Maevex encoder can be used to stream directly to digital signage players now. The new recording feature will be available via firmware upgrade at no additional charge in Q2, 2014. The Maevex decoder, priced at $549 US, is available now. The new fail-safe feature will be available via firmware upgrade at no additional charge in Q2, 2014.
