The new encoders and decoders capture, stream, and decode video from variety of sources, and allow for software-based decoding on non-Maevex devices. The Maevex units come bundled with the Matrox PowerStream software, allowing for remote management of devices and enabling a wide variety of user-defined stream-management features, including adjustable low bit-rate encoding for minimal and cost-effective bandwidth consumption.
