Matrox Maevex 6100 Series
Maevex 6152 Quad 4K Decoder
The Maevex 6152 quad decoder is a real-time H.264 video decoder capable of decoding up to four 4K live MPEG2-TS, RTSP, and SRT streams at low latency. When paired with Maevex 6100 Series encoders, Maevex 6152 can achieve exceptionally low latency at low network bitrate consumption. It also supports reliable, encrypted transmission over internet for the secure streaming of content. The complimentary Maevex SDK enables you to build new applications or integrate the functionalities of PowerStream Plus into existing applications. TAA compliant SKU available.

The ultimate pairing for ultra-low latency
The Maevex 6152 decoder interoperates with virtually any device—third-party encoders, cameras, software encoders, or other Matrox products. This H.264 decoder integrates seamlessly into existing 1 GbE networks to send many superior-quality, low-latency AV streams—all without sacrificing quality. To achieve ultra-low latency, pair your Maevex 6152 decoder with any Maevex 6100 Series encoder to reach glass-to-glass latency as low as 50 ms.
Flexible protocols. Secure streaming.
Decode up to four 4K live MPEG2-TS, RTSP, and SRT streams. Support for the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) video transport protocol means that secure, low-latency, and high-performance streaming is also realized on noisy or unpredictable networks such as the public Internet. Whether you’re dealing with a stable LAN connection, a limited WAN pipeline, or an unpredictable Internet transport, Maevex has the right streaming protocol for the job.
Multi-configuration decode per display
Simple setup with preset layouts
PowerStream Plus software provides preset layouts for effortless setup of multi-screen configurations. Use the multiple Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and composite options to arrange your streams in a variety of layouts. With preset layouts, you can quickly set up single or multiple streams per display and arrange the content on your screen.
Drag, drop, and done
Setting up video and streams has never been easier—or faster. After selecting a layout for each of your four outputs, simply drag and drop the source into the appropriate placeholder. Finally, adjust your layout settings, and you’re done.
Flawless image quality
Decode 2x 4Kp60, 4x 4Kp30/60, 8x 1080p60, 16x 1080p30 streams. Streams encoded with 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0, and 4:0:0 chroma subsampling can be decoded by the Maevex 6152 decoder.
Rack mountable. Ultra quiet operation.
Support up to two 6152 decoder appliances from a single U of rack space, housed in a ½ rack width. Place the appliance on the desktop, workstation, or rack, and it’s ready to use.
And its whisper-quiet operation means that Maevex is made for control rooms, operation centers, and other critical environments that require a noise level of 25 dB and less.
Control at the push of a button
Four on-appliance buttons—to access the On-Screen Display (OSD) and choose decoded content—provide all the control you need with a simple press of a button.
Always powered. Always on.
Safeguard against a potential loss of power. Matrox makes available rack-mounted, multi-output redundant power supply units (RPSU) to ensure uninterrupted operation of your Matrox device in case of a power module failure and a redundant power input in case a circuit breaker trips.
Complete reach and control
Discover devices, manage content, and monitor all streams and recordings from any location on the network with PowerStream Plus software. Included with the purchase of Maevex hardware, PowerStream Plus makes it easy to manage and update both generations of Maevex products via a single application. PowerStream Plus can be installed on any network-connected computer.
Easy APIs and SDKs for full customization
Easily build new applications or integrate the functionalities of PowerStream Plus into existing applications with the Matrox Maevex SDK. Further customize the appearance of your Matrox product—with new company naming, images, logos, colors, buttons, and identity—for greater ease of use and complete white label branding of Matrox hardware and software.
