Lumens and Matrox Announce SRT H.264 Streaming Compatibility from PTZ Camera to Display

Lumens and Matrox have announced the compatibility of their products with the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) open-source streaming protocol from the SRT Alliance. The SRT Open Source project, driven by the Alliance, is a collaborative community of industry leaders and developers striving to achieve lower latency internet video transport.

Lumens VC-A50P series PTZ cameras support Full HD 1080p/60fps streaming, including H.264 on SRT for applications including lecture recording, videoconferencing, and live broadcasting.

Matrox Mura IPX quad-display multiviewer cards and Matrox Mura IPX series encoder/decoder boards for video walls, meanwhile, support the SRT protocol, the decoding of multiple H.264 streams, and the output of multi-monitor configurations.

The new technology collaboration now allows customers to show up to four VC-A50P series PTZ camera streams across four displays per Mura IPX multiviewer, and up to eight cameras on up to nine monitors on video wall systems containing one Mura IPX capture & IP decode board combined with a Matrox or third-party graphics card. 

The end-to-end ecosystem facilitates seamless delivery, decode, and display of high-quality, H.264 camera streams in SRT—at full resolution and frame rate—ideal for any AV-over-IP environment.
