Matrox has added the Maevex 6152 quad 4K decoder to its Maevex 6100 Series family.
Built on the same core technology as the Maevex 6100 encoders, Maevex 6152 decodes up to four 4K streams—or many more lower resolution streams—across up to four 4K displays from a single, standalone appliance. Maevex 6152 also includes HDCP support to decode and display multiple streams of protected content. In addition, the Maevex 6152 can be combined with third-party encoders to create new or upgrade existing end-to-end systems.
The Matrox Maevex 6152 decoder will be in action at ISE 2020, demonstrating its benefits for a wide range of multi-screen decoding applications in digital signage, control rooms, houses of worship, military, medical, and more.
Packaged in the same rack- and display-mount-friendly design as Maevex 6100 Series encoders, the 1U, ½ rack Maevex 6152 decoder provides decode and display support of up to four 4K low-latency streams across 4K displays. Maevex 6152 offers HDCP support, decoding HDCP content from a variety of sources including external Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and streaming video devices. The quad 4K encoder also includes preset layouts providing users with the flexibility to target up to eight streams on a single screen.
Included with all Matrox Maevex 6100 Series encoder and decoder products, the Maevex PowerStream Plus AV-over-IP software management tool provides control over the entire Maevex network from a single or multiple locations. Maevex PowerStream Plus provides users with an assortment of drag-and-drop stream and layout selection options, along with available previews for quick decoder output configurations. For rapid customization, the PowerStream Plus API for Windows and Linux and lower-level REST API are available for integrators and developers looking to create personalized Maevex control applications for deployment in any scenario.
The Matrox Maevex 6152 quad 4K decoder (part number: MVX-D6152-4) will be available in early Q2 2020.
