Matrox Maevex 6100 Series

Maevex 6152 Quad 4K Encoder

Maevex 6152 new front back angle
High-density 4K encoding at ultra-low latency

Matrox® Maevex 6152 is a quad HDMI® video encoder that delivers secure 4K60 input capture and encode, and supports at least four 4K streams and recordings—simultaneously. The encoder features six streaming protocols, multiple chroma sub-sampling, adjustable encoding parameters, zero-latency pass-through, and compositing, all in a convenient, quiet, low power, rack-ready appliance that fits almost any encoding application. The complimentary Maevex SDK enables you to build new applications or integrate the functionalities of PowerStream Plus into existing applications. TAA compliant SKU available.

Ultra-low latency streaming. High quality experience.

Achieve zero-latency pass-through for real-time output of audio/video content on up to four 4K displays. This H.264 encoder integrates seamlessly into existing infrastructures and interoperates with virtually any network device, ensuring high-density content distribution and system scalability—all without sacrificing quality. Maevex also uses existing 1 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructure to allow many streams of any quality to be transmitted on a single cable, eliminating the need for a dedicated distribution network. The Maevex 6152 encoder can have latency as low as 16 ms.

Flexible protocols. Reliable streaming.

Enjoy a variety of streaming protocols—HLS, MPEG2-TS, RTP, RTMP, RTSP, and SRT—for trouble-free streaming. Support for the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) video transport protocol means that ultra-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.

Full color depth. Maximum visibility.

Benefit from up to 4K/UHD 4:4:4 sub-sampling support and H.264 compression for best-in-breed encoding. The multi-chroma sub-sampling feature delivers 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0, and 4:0:0 options, to best balance bitrate and compression demands of different encoding content, environments, and markets. User-definable bitrates and quantization parameters, as well as various encoding modes to optimize for desktop performance, lower latency, or image quality.


Quad stream and record. Anywhere, at the same time.

Maevex 6152 delivers content to on-premises end points, over the LAN, WAN, and internet, feeds cloud-based servers, and records to local or network storage for later editing and viewing.
