Matrox Maevex H.264 Video Encoders/Decoders Support Wowza Streaming Engine for Enterprise Communications

Enterprises Can Pair Maevex With the Wowza Engine to Capture, Encode, and Stream Av-Over-Ip Content Within Their Corporate Infrastructure

Matrox Maevex 5100 Series and Wowza Logo

Corporate communications is evolving at an exciting pace and technology is helping to bring new and effective ways for companies of any size to deliver workplace content to their employees and partners, as well as manage operations and security. In many cases these important corporate messages need to be delivered to key people on the move and in remote locations that are away from the information source.

Matrox® Maevex™ H.264 encoders and decoders can simply and easily deliver affordable, exceptional-quality video and audio at low, user-defined bitrates over a standard IP network to many destinations on the LAN. Maevex interoperability with the Wowza Streaming Engine™ adds a new level of flexibility and reach to the ways in which you can deliver video and audio within the corporate infrastructure, and to those that need to see and hear it, no matter where they are!

Maevex HD AV Distribution System Delivers at Both Ends

The Maevex HD encoder can capture excellent-quality video and audio from a wide range of sources— including PCs, cameras, laptops, monitoring equipment, or even phones, tablets or over-the-top (OTT) boxes—and provide a live pass-though for operational use while encoding the input to a 1080p60 high-quality stream. That stream can be sent to the Wowza Streaming Engine to be transcoded so that many types of devices and applications are enabled to view and hear the communication stream, regardless of processing power, supported stream protocols, or video formats. This enables all of the key corporate decision makers and operations centers to see and hear critical decision-making information no matter where they are or what device they are using.

Beyond the Wowza Streaming Engine management of unknown stream delivery devices, Maevex decoders can provide perfect quality decoding to stationary locations. The Maevex video decoder works with the Wowza Streaming Engine on the delivery end to provide stable, Blu-ray quality video and audio to monitoring stations and remote control rooms. Simple and reliable, the Maevex decoder provides the Wowza streamed content when needed and in a clear and dependable way for decisions to be made.
