Panopto, a video platform provider for businesses and universities, and Matrox Graphics Inc., a global manufacturer of reliable, high-quality encoder cards, appliances, and software, announced the forthcoming release of a new Panopto-certified media capture appliance. Purpose-built for the Panopto video platform, the new Matrox Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder supports best-in-class video recording and live streaming in a compact, turnkey form factor.
In recent years, businesses and universities have expanded their AV infrastructure to provide video recording and streaming capabilities in more classrooms and conference rooms. To scale effectively, these organisations increasingly require video capture solutions that can be installed easily by in-house staff and that take up minimal space in the room.
With a compact form factor, low power usage, and whisper-quiet operation, the appliance is ideal for broadcast-quality video recording and streaming at an affordable price point
Broadcast-quality video recording
In response to this growing demand, Panopto and Matrox Graphics engineering teams jointly developed the Maevex 6020. With a compact form factor, low power usage, and whisper-quiet operation, the appliance is ideal for organisations looking for broadcast-quality video recording and streaming at an affordable price point. By simply connecting the appliance to the network and plugging in video sources, businesses and universities can:
Capture live and on-demand video: An intuitive, web-based dashboard enables the scheduling of video recordings and live broadcasts from anywhere. Customers can also control, schedule and monitor recordings from their phone using the Remote Control capability in Panopto for iOS and Android.
Share videos to any device: All videos captured by the Maevex 6020 are automatically published to Panopto's video content management system, where they're encoded for on-demand playback on any device.
Search inside videos: Panopto's unique Smart Search technology enables users to search inside videos and fast-forward to any word spoken or shown.
The appliance enables organisations to automate the capture and streaming of presentations, lectures, meetings and events
Automating capturing and streaming
The appliance is built for simple operation with no extraneous features. It provides presenters with a visual indicator of the current recording state, and one-touch controls to start, stop, and pause recordings. In addition, the appliance enables organisations to automate the capture and streaming of presentations, lectures, meetings and events. It supports the scheduling of one-time and recurring events, remote configuration of recording devices, and previews of video feeds and audio histograms.
"Every classroom, conference room, and auditorium has unique logistical requirements, and we built Panopto to support infinite customization of the AV infrastructure in these learning spaces," said Eric Burns, co-founder and CEO of Panopto. "Regardless of the form factor or use case, our goal is to provide a best-in-class video capture solution. Through our partnership with Matrox, we're taking the next logical step in this strategy, working with an industry leader to provide a sleek, compact device that has the power and reliability of larger appliances at an affordable price point."
Multi-channel encoding solution
"Maevex technology is the latest in Matrox's line of realtime, multi-channel encoding solutions for the enterprise and education markets," said David Chiappini, vice president of research and development at Matrox Graphics Inc. "When you combine the performance and ease-of-use of this technology with Panopto's video management and search capabilities, you get an industry-leading, end-to-end solution for video-based communications and learning in the cloud or on-premises."
The Maevex 6020 remote recorder will be released this fall with full pricing details coming later this summer.
