Matrox Video At The 2023 NAB Show

The highlight of Matrox Video’s activities at the 2023 NAB Show will revolve around a disruptive new technology that changes how developers and broadcasters handle tier 1 live production, both on premises and in the cloud.

Matrox Video will unveil this new approach to cloud production that is unlike anything else on the market. This disruptive technology is a software-only, asynchronous framework that runs on IT infrastructure. It can achieve highly scalable, responsive, low-latency, easy-to-control, and frame-accurate broadcast media facilities for both on-premises and cloud deployments. With this technology, Matrox Video has built the missing framework for compromise-free live cloud production that the industry believed would take another 10 years to accomplish. It is the foundation for the broadcast infrastructure of the future and creates new opportunities for broadcasters and developers.

Besides the activities around its new cloud production technology, Matrox Video will also demonstrate some of its other products that have become staples in many broadcast workflows:

  • Monarch EDGE Encoders and Decoders — Monarch EDGE 4K/multiHD encoders and decoders help organizations produce more broadcast-quality content with fewer resources by transporting up to four synchronized camera feeds over the open internet and public/private cloud for SDI-based productions. They are purpose-built for delivering broadcast-quality remote productions from any location. Built-in features like tally and talkback eliminate the need to purchase extra equipment, saving money and installation time.
  • ConvertIP SMPTE ST 2110 Converters — ConvertIP devices convert ST 2110 signals to HDMI or SDI. These fanless NMOS devices with PoE are 4K-ready and can be used in broadcast environments to support uncompressed and compressed (JPEG XS) workflows. Demonstrations will showcase subframe-latency transport, seamless switching, and NMOS-based routing.
  • Extio 3 IP KVM extenders — Extio 3 IP KVM extenders facilitate remote access and connectivity for users in broadcast studios, control rooms, and OB vans by enabling secure, low-bit-rate, and glitch-free 4Kp60 4:4:4 and up to quad 1080p60 4:4:4 video extension and switching over LAN, WAN, or internet. Readily compatible with common 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks, Extio 3 IP KVM extenders create scalable and cost-effective KVM matrix switching environments using standard networking equipment and infrastructures so users can readily access multiple broadcast systems from any user station.
  • Broadcast developer products — Matrox Video continues to expand its ST 2110 IP and 12G-SDI I/O cards within its developer product families and to enrich its hardware and software in response to 4K and 8K market requirements. The new DSX LE5 12G card provides 12G-capable relay bypass for up to four channels of 12G-SDI. The add-on DSX LE5 IP cards and X.mio5 ST 2110-22 cards with JPEG XS enable broadcasters to transport multiple channels of 4K and 8K ST 2110 video content within a 25GbE or even 10GbE pipeline. The advanced, ultra-low-latency support on both the X.mio5 and DSX LE5 12G-SDI and ST 2110 products further reduce latency with high-density and high-resolution video streams. This support gives applications more processing time by delivering the buffers earlier, thereby reducing total latency to as little as a one-frame delay, with stability. Furthermore, Matrox Video has migrated its feature-rich File IO support to the Linux platform in its latest software release so developers can build their systems across platforms.
