In the test setup above you can see the 5 simultaneous streams, described in the Streaming Protocols section (MPEG-TS, SRT, RTSP, HLS and RTMP / Youtube Live). But at the same time we have two recordings going on: on a USB drive and on the NAS. All happening at the same time. And this works flawlessly.
When you are doing a setup like this, you will love the 4 programmable buttons on the Maevex. You can easily program them to start and stop (multiple) streams and recording.
Although everything worked fine, there’s one thing that I would like to see on Maetrox Maevex: an indication when it runs out of processing power. As it is now, it just starts dropping frames without notification when that happens.
I experienced this myself when I had a setup that had processing lines with too much downscaling in them. Dropped frames where visible. Be aware that even if a stream is disabled, the downscaling consumes processing power from the Maevex.
