Affordable Full HD, Low-Bandwidth AV-over-IP

The Matrox Maevex video distribution over IP solution consists of the Maevex 5100 Series encoders and decoders that can extend or record up to 1080p60 video and audio over a standard IP network at user-defined low bit rates for excellent quality and minimal network bandwidth consumption. The Maevex encoder streams or records high-quality video and audio and uses the H.264 video compression standard. It can stream to Maevex decoders or any device or PC that supports the required network protocols. It can also record to a shared network or NAS drive. The robust Matrox PowerStream™ software is included with the hardware and is used to remotely discover, manage, and adjust the Maevex network and lets administrators conveniently define multiple stream parameters and balance network bandwidth consumption and quality. The Maevex API is also available to enable programmers to integrate current features into existing applications or create new, independent PowerStream-like software to meet their specific needs.


• Extend/record up to Full HD 1080p60 and 1920x1200 video and audio
• H.264 compression for high-quality, low-bandwidth AV-over-IP
• Support for wide-screen & standard aspect ratios and many resolutions
• Scale streams before distribution for lower bandwidth consumption
• HDMI or analog audio support
• Open encoding allows for third-party software decode (e.g. VLC)


• Record up to 1080p60/1920x1200 to NAS or shared network drive
• Control frequency and duration of recording
• Schedule the start time and date of recording sessions
• Recorded user-defined file name includes timestamp for easy file management

Network Management:

• Operates on standard 100/1000Mb Ethernet networks
• Auto-detect and discover Maevex units on subnet (DHCP server required)
• Full/half-duplex mode and static IP address support
• CBR, VBR support
• Network bit-rate control (100 Kbps – 25 Mbps)


• Play back pre-recorded content at the decoder in case of a network disruption or if encoder stops streaming (e.g. loss of power)
• Programmable time delay before failsafe activates

Maevex API:

• Integrate Maevex features in existing or new control software
• Based on easy-to-use .NET programming language
• Provided to select developers (no cost/license-free)

PowerStream Control Software:

• Remotely manage Maevex network from different locations
• Conveniently access IP address, bit rate, and other vitals
• Fine-tune encode/decode parameters and adjust bit rates
• Scale & crop content to fit different outputs

Other Benefits:

• Daisy-chain decoders & extend network via integrated network switch
• Failure resilience—power, network, and device auto-recovery features
• Full duplex RS-232 control (pt. to pt.)
• Reliable, solid-state, energy-efficient design
• Local real-time pass-through and confidence preview on encoder
• PowerStream-controlled user access from secured PC
• Detailed LED indicators for easy and effective troubleshooting
• Customizable bitmap for encoder/decoder splash screen
• Rackmountable with optional rackmount tray and accessories
