In a series of interactive demonstrations, Matrox Graphics Inc. will feature Mura IPX Series 4K capture and IP encoder/decoder cards, C-Series™ multi-display graphics cards, Matrox Maevex™ AV-over-IP encoders/decoders and Matrox Mura™ MPX video wall controller cards. Matrox Video will showcase the Monarch™ HDX dual-channel broadcast streaming and recording appliance and the VS4Recorder Pro™ multi-camera recording app.
4K Capture and IP Encoder/Decoder Cards
Matrox Mura IPX Series 4K capture and IP encoder/decoder cards let OEMs and AV system builders deliver advanced video wall controllers featuring high-quality, low-bitrate, multi-channel 4K or HD encoding and decoding over standard IP. Designed to work with Mura MPX video wall capture and display cards and Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards, Mura IPX packs 4K capture plus high-density encode and decode functionality onto a single PCIe® card to simplify integration and reduce installation costs. The MURA-IPX-I4DF 4K capture and IP decoder card provides four HDMI inputs for direct high-resolution 4Kp60 or 2560x1600p60 capture plus H.264 decoding of up to two 4Kp60, four 4Kp30, eight 1080p60 or sixteen 1080p30 streams. The MURA-IPX-I4EF 4K capture and IP encoder/decoder card adds H.264 level 5.2 encoding to stream and record content—including video wall sources, displays or regions-of-interest—anywhere on the network.
Multi-display Graphics Cards
Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards deliver outstanding performance, stability, and usability to power video management systems and small-scale display walls in control room, digital signage, enterprise, industrial, security, A/V, and embedded system applications. C-Series cards feature 2 GB of on-board memory and secure mini DisplayPort connectivity. Matrox C680 supports up to six 4K/UHD displays. More displays can be supported by inserting two C680 cards into a system. The board-to-board framelock feature ensures synchronization of all displays to reduce tearing on digital signage and video walls. Matrox C420 is the fastest quad card with passive cooling for increased reliability and silent operation.
Matrox Maevex 5100 Series H.264 encoders and decoders deliver exceptional-quality AV streaming at low bandwidth over standard IP networks for display or for storage anywhere on the LAN. Maevex encoders can be combined with Maevex decoders or a third-party software decoder to stream up to Full HD AV content to displays and projectors for digital signage, presentation/education, corporate information display, collaborative video wall and many other applications. Maevex is multi-functional in design and can also be used to record desktop sessions to NAS, whether for review or evaluation purposes. Maevex comes bundled with Matrox PowerStream™ software for easy remote device management, stream switching and streaming/recording parameter adjustment, including user-definable bit rates between 100 Kbps and 25 Mbps.
Video Wall Capture and Display Cards
Matrox Mura MPX Series capture and display cards feature universal inputs and high-quality outputs allowing AV integrators, system builders and equipment manufacturers to easily and cost-effectively build custom, high-density video wall controllers with up to 56 HD inputs and 56 HD outputs. Exceptional-quality scaling, switching and compositing of source content including HDCP feeds are easily managed through intuitive software control options including Matrox MuraControl™, third-party software and simple integration with existing AV control systems. Rich transitions and eye-catching effects can be applied to both recorded and live content using the latest Mura Network API—a platform that software developers have used to build their own powerful video wall control solutions for Mura-based video walls.
Dual-Channel Broadcast Streaming and Recording Appliance
Matrox Monarch HDX is a compact, easy-to-use, dual-channel H.264 encoding appliance. Designed for complete workflow flexibility, Monarch HDX features 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. Monarch HDX is packed with features that make it ideal for broadcasters, event producers, medical facilities, CDNs, educational institutions, houses of worship, corporate communicators and legal videographers. From any SDI or HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HDX generates two H.264-encoded video streams at bitrates from 200 Kbps to 30 Mbps. Powerful scaling, deinterlacing and noise reduction engines ensure only pristine images are sent to the encoders. For streaming purposes, the encoders use either RTMP or RTSP protocol to deliver live streams to local or cloud-based media servers. In recording applications, the encoders write MP4 or MOV files to local USB drives, SD cards or network-mapped drives for post-event editing or archiving. 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 easily start and stop streaming and recording from within the familiar Crestron interface.
Multi-camera Recording App
VS4Recorder Pro is designed for use with Matrox VS4™ quad HD capture cards. Each VS4Recorder Pro system frame-accurately captures up to four video and audio inputs to create files for use with popular editing apps from Adobe, Apple 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®.
