Panopto and Matrox introduce jointly developed media capture appliance

Panopto, a video platform provider for businesses and universities, and Matrox have announced the forthcoming release of a new Panopto-certified media capture appliance

Purpose-built for the Panopto video platform, the Matrox Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder supports video recording and live streaming.

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 by in-house staff and that take up minimal space in the room.

In response to this growing demand, Panopto and Matrox Graphics engineering teams jointly developed the Maevex 6020. It is suitable for organisations looking for broadcast-quality video recording and streaming systems.

By connecting the appliance to the network and plugging in video sources, businesses and universities can capture live and on-demand video. A web-based dashboard enables the scheduling of video recordings and live broadcasts from anywhere. Customers can also control, schedule and monitor recordings from a phone using the Remote Control capability in Panopto for iOS and Android.

All videos captured by the Maevex 6020 are automatically published to Panopto's video content management system, where they are encoded for on-demand playback on any device. Panopto's Smart Search technology enables users to search inside videos and fast-forward to any word spoken or shown.

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.

The Maevex 6020 remote recorder will be released this autumn with full pricing details coming later this summer.
