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.

Maevex 6152 Decoder Layouts

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

Pixel Representation Tiger

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.
