Matrox MVX-ED5150F
Maevex Encoder/Decoder Bundle


The MVX-ED5150F from Matrox is a Maevex™ 5100 Series H.264 bundle consisting of the 5150 series Encoder and 5150 series Decoder units.

NOTE: Product shown in image is for illustrative purposes only. Actual product is just a single encoder unit and a single decoder unit.

The Matrox Maevex video distribution over IP solution consists of the Maevex 5100 Series encoder/decoder pair that extends 1080p60 video and audio over a standard IP network. 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, such as switches, routers, and CATx cabling. The technology’s H.264 encode/decode platform delivers Full HD, excellent-quality video extension over standard LAN connectivity at user-defined low bit rates for minimal network bandwidth consumption. The robust 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 if necessary. Maevex hardware architecture, I/O functionality, and PowerStream features combine to yield an excellent-quality video over IP solution at a cost-effective price for a wide variety of applications.

Maevex Video over IP—Any Video, Anytime, Anywhere!

MVX-ED5150F Applications:

  • Maevex video over IP solutions can be applied to drive dynamic digital signage for retail and restaurant environments, transportation, banking, healthcare, and other sectors. Maevex can also distribute high-quality video in such sectors as healthcare (non-digital signage) and for academic and instructional technology and training, where zero latency is not required. The need for high-quality video distribution onnon-proprietary, standardized IT equipment is common in these application areas, with Maevex serving as an excellent, cost-effective solution.
  • Additionally, Maevex can serve collaborative videowall and control room environments by making it easier to integrate data andvideo. In control rooms for example, Maevex serves as a seamless, standardized IT solution to deliver desktop, video, and other content to the video wall as well as share operator display outputs, desktops, and applications.
  • Within these environments, Maevex takes full advantage of existing and standardized COTS IT networking equipment and networks, employing them to send data, as well as high-quality, Full HD video at very low bandwidth. Maevex consequently possesses tremendous value due to its low price point, but also its overall cost-effectiveness, leveraging standardized COTS networking equipment and providing excellent quality at low bandwidth.
