Matrox Shows Monarch at NAB

Matrox Video is spotlighting its Monarch HDX dual-channel broadcast streaming and recording appliance, the VS4Recorder Pro multi-camera recording app and the Matrox DSX Developer Products in Vegas.

The Matrod Monarch HDX is a dual-channel H.264 encoding appliance featuring 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs with frame synchronization to compensate for unstable sources. Two independent H.264 encoders provide redundancy or can be set to stream and/or record at individual settings.

From any SDI or HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Monarch HDX generates two H.264-encoded video streams at bitrates from 200 Kbps to 30 Mbps. An additional, dedicated H.264 encoder provides remote preview of the input. New features include implementation of Ross Video's DashBoard Connect protocols and the introduction of Monarch HDX Dev Tools that let network- or cloud-based video management platform developers and A/V integrators control Monarch HDX from within their own custom environments. Monarch HDX can also be integrated with a Crestron controller, which allows operators to start and stop streaming and recording from within the Crestron interface.

VS4Recorder Pro is designed for use with Matrox VS4 quad HD capture cards. Each system frame-accurately captures up to four video and audio inputs to create files for use with popular editing apps from AdobeApple and Avid and for archiving. H.264 is provided in either MOV or MP4 wrappers. AVI files can be created using the high-quality Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec. MOV QuickTime files can be created using DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD. VS4Recorder Pro also functions as a multiviewer, offering pristine video quality even when monitoring interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors. VS4-based systems are also ideal for multi-camera live production streaming with Telestream Wirecast for Windows.

Matrox DSX — Developer Products combine a full range of multi-channel SD/HD/4K I/O cards, including the new X.mio3 and DSX LE4 families, plus the high-density M264 family of H.264 encoding cards with feature-rich Windows and Linux SDKs and powerful tools for quick app development.

A constantly expanding selection of codecs (DVCPRO HD, MPEG-2, XDCAM HD AVC-Intra, H.264, Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD, PitchBlue, and more) and extensive file format support (GXF, MXF, MOV, AVI, MPG, MP4, and more) meet evolving needs. The complete set of Matrox software modules is also offered in DSX.Core for media processing in virtualized broadcast infrastructures. Using DSX.Core, OEMs can provide data-center-friendly broadcast solutions running on virtual machines that can be easily repurposed on the fly as needed.
