Matrox Video Launches Matrox ORIGIN Framework For Broadcast Infrastructure Of The Future

Matrox ORIGIN is a common development framework for the broadcast infrastructure of the future. ORIGIN provides the foundation for tier 1 live production in the cloud without compromise. Unlike anything else on the market, ORIGIN is the missing link for tier 1 live production that developers and broadcasters have long been calling for but didn’t think was possible for another decade.

Matrox ORIGIN is an asynchronous, vendor-agnostic media framework built on a cloud-native architecture that reconciles live production requirements with the capabilities of the cloud, operating IT infrastructure as it was intended to run — asynchronously. This disruptive, software-only framework can achieve highly scalable, responsive, low-latency, easy-to-control, and frame-accurate broadcast media facilities to support tier 1 live productions both on-premises and in the cloud.

Matrox ORIGIN offers built-in redundancy that requires no user intervention, giving broadcasters reliable, fail-safe workflows for tier 1 live broadcasts without having to think about it. With the ORIGIN platform, broadcasters can very easily and very quickly deploy their services and channels in the cloud. And to best manage the use of resources and reduce costs, ORIGIN provides live migration with no interruption and no frame drops.

Also, unlike end-to-end cloud production solutions that require people to purchase all major cloud production components from one vendor, Matrox ORIGIN is truly vendor-agnostic. Broadcasters and integrators are free to choose best-of-breed components for every part of the chain without being locked into a particular manufacturer. This is one of the things that makes ORIGIN unique.

Broadcasters running live tier 1 production workflows on ORIGIN can provision systems on the fly as needed for each job while still meeting live-broadcast requirements. This optimizes costs, which is particularly appealing to financial executives who are plagued by expensive equipment that often sits idle (multiplied by 2 or more to account for redundancy). By using ORIGIN as the base, broadcasters can operate, build, and develop scalable, best-of-breed solutions for both cloud and on-prem workflows based on whatever is best for the business. As they are ready, they can efficiently transfer all their on-prem work to the cloud.

With the Matrox ORIGIN cloud-native framework as the underlying infrastructure, developers can focus their resources on what really sets them apart. They can build products that run equally well on a single host or in distributed systems on-premises or in the public cloud. And they can develop once and deploy many times to meet market needs and respect the transition path.

ORIGIN offers HTTPS-based APIs for applications to provision, control, and execute media services. Developers can use built-in media services (such as NDI IO, CDI IO, SRT, media reader and writer, and video/audio mixer), or they can create their own custom media services that will inherit the benefits of the ORIGIN infrastructure.
