Matrox Debuts Monarch HDX Tools at IBC 2015

Matrox Video has announced Monarch HDX Dev Tools, a set of tools for streaming and recording linked to the Monarch HDX H.264 encoder.

“The Monarch HDX Dev Tools let organisations such as CDNs and schools easily offer a unified, consistent and branded user experience,” said Dan Maloney, Matrox technical marketing manager. “Individual users need not interact directly with the Monarch HDX Command Center web UI, which can simplify enterprise-level and centrally administered deployments.”

Monarch HDX Dev Tools include automatic configuration methods and Monarch HDX Control API. The methods can be used to set all Monarch HDX encoding and destination parameters by loading an XML configuration file or instructing the device to retrieve configuration information from a URL at boot-up. Monarch HDX Control API is an HTTP-based API that lets developers create their own control software to start and stop encoding, set bitrates and destinations, and get the status of a Monarch HDX device.

The appliance is available this month for $1995 US (€1995, £1395).
