Matrox Adds Touch-Panel Controller Support, Remote Monitoring Capabilities to Maevex 6020 Remote Recorders

Latest Maevex APIs enable new customization and control options to manage and maintain Maevex 6020 video capture appliances in education and enterprise environments

Dorval,Quebec(11 Feb 2020)

Matrox’s latest APIs provide enhanced touch-panel controller support and
advanced monitoring of Maevex 6020 appliances deployed within diverse
AV/IT ecosystems.

MONTREAL — February 11, 2020 — Matrox® today announces two versatile APIs to provide enhanced customization and control of Matrox Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder appliances. Leveraging the Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder RS-232 and Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder REST APIs, users can support control of Maevex 6020 devices from a local touch-screen controller, as well as automate monitoring of all Maevex 6020 appliances on the network, respectively. These tools provide new, easy-to-implement approaches to managing Maevex 6020 appliances deployed within diverse AV/IT ecosystems.

The Panopto-certified Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder, and its latest control and monitoring features, will be demonstrated at ISE 2020, in Matrox stand 11-D120 and Panasonic stand 1-H20.

Enhanced touch-panel controller options

The Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder RS-232 API supports RS-232 to USB communication allowing universities, enterprises, IT departments, and third-party AV integrators to program for convenient in-room control of the Maevex 6020 appliance via Crestron™, Kramer™, Extron™, or other tabletop touch-screen controllers. Users can program a variety of basic commands—including start, stop, pause, resume, extend, status, and reboot—providing teachers and presenters with a simple way to control Maevex 6020 devices.

Advanced monitoring and maintenance

The Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder REST API enables programmers to code for retrieving status updates from Maevex 6020 devices. The REST API also supports the Panasonic® Customer Assurance through Remote monitoring and Enhanced Service (CARES) solutions platform. This integration facilitates remote monitoring and maintenance of both Maevex 6020 appliances and Panasonic products to maximize uptime and minimize disruptions.

“Matrox’s new APIs for the Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder demonstrates a commitment to improving the lecture and presentation capture experience, both from an integration and user side,” said Ron Berty, business development manager at Matrox. “These APIs are a direct result of working with our customers and partners like Panasonic to ensure that they not only get the very best out of their Maevex 6020 products, but that they also benefit from a solution that evolves as their needs evolve.”

Panopto’s best-in-class video capture solution

The Matrox Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder is a Panopto™-certified media capture appliance that offers dual-Full HD channels of recording and live video. Users will benefit from simultaneous dual live streaming as well as multiple on-device recordings of different qualities per input—with zero transcoding time—for the fastest and highest-quality VOD possible. Maevex 6020 is fully integrated with the Panopto video management system by an easy 1-2-3 connectivity utility and has additional on-device push-button controls for quick and simple operations.
