All-in-one, low-latency Matrox decoder with HDCP and multi-stream-layout support delivers powerful multi-screen decoding performance and versatility.


Matrox has announced the latest addition to the Maevex 6100 Series family: the Matrox Maevex 6152 quad 4K decoder. Built on the same core technology as the Maevex 6100 encoders, Maevex 6152 decodes up to four 4K streams—or many more lower resolution streams—across up to four 4K displays from a single appliance. Maevex 6152 also includes HDCP support to decode and display multiple streams of protected content.

In addition, the Maevex encoder and decoder pairing offers high-quality, low-latency streaming, while Maevex 6152 can be combined with third-party encoders to create new or upgrade existing end-to-end systems.

The Matrox Maevex 6152 decoder was showcased at the recent ISE show demonstrating its benefits for a wide range of multi-screen decoding applications in digital signage, control rooms, houses of worship, military and medical applications.

Multi-channel decoding, HDCP support

Packaged in the same quiet, rack- and display-mount-friendly design as Maevex 6100 Series encoders, the 1U, ½ rack Maevex 6152 decoder provides high-quality decode and display support of up to four 4K low-latency streams across 4K displays. Maevex 6152 offers HDCP support, decoding HDCP content from a variety of sources including external Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, and streaming video devices. The quad 4K encoder also includes pre-set layouts providing users with the flexibility to target up to eight streams on a single screen.

Field-proven management software

Included with all Matrox Maevex 6100 Series encoder and decoder products, the popular Maevex PowerStream Plus AV-over-IP software management tool provides complete reach and control over the entire Maevex network from a single or multiple locations.

Maevex PowerStream Plus provides users with an assortment of easy-to-use, drag-and-drop stream and layout selection options, along with available previews for quick and intuitive decoder output configurations.

For rapid customisation, the PowerStream Plus API for Windows and Linux and lower-level REST API are available for integrators looking to create personalised Maevex control applications for deployment in any scenario.

“Matrox Maevex 6152 opens up a wave of multi-screen decoding applications,” says Ron Berty, business development manager at Matrox. “Armed with remarkable flexibility and intuitive configuration tools, the Maevex 6152 decoder empowers users to deploy highly-customizable encode/decode solutions designed to deliver and display any number of streams in many shapes and sizes, quickly and easily.”

The Matrox Maevex 6152 quad 4K decoder (part number: MVX-D6152-4) will be available in early Q2 2020.
