Matrox Maevex Demonstration at InfoComm 2013 to Focus on Video over IP Decoding Quality

Visitors can expect to see superb video quality at low bandwidth as they interactively adjust bandwidth usage from 100Kb/s to 25Mb/s using Matrox PowerStream software

May 15, 2013

Matrox® Graphics Inc. will feature the new Matrox Maevex™ 5100 Series video distribution over IP encoders and decoders at InfoComm 2013 in booth 4759. The Maevex products extend full-HD-quality 1080p60 video and audio over standard IP networks, with minimal bandwidth consumption, at a fraction of the cost of other solutions.

"The single most-asked question we have encountered is: Can you show me the decode quality?" said Ron Berty, business development manager at Matrox. "At InfoComm, side-by-side views of the source video and decoded video will let our booth visitors compare for themselves."

The Maevex encoder captures video and audio from a host PC or another media source and seamlessly extends the signals to one or more Maevex decoders via standard networking equipment - switches, routers, CATx cabling. The H.264 encode/decode platform delivers excellent-quality video extension over standard LAN connectivity at user-defined low bit rates for minimal network bandwidth consumption. Matrox PowerStream software application is used to remotely discover, manage and adjust the Maevex network and lets administrators conveniently define multiple stream parameters and balance network bandwidth consumption.

Maevex solutions are used to drive dynamic digital signage in such environments as retail, restaurant, transportation, banking and healthcare. They are also used to distribute high-quality video in academic, medical, training, collaborative video wall and control room settings.
