Recently adding broadcast IP cards to its DSX developer product line, Matrox now provides a diversified range of SMPTE ST 2110-ready cards suited for every system design and budget.

The Matrox DSX LE4 IP provides IP encapsulation of HD, 3G, and 4K video for all IP transport protocols, along with the added security of ST 2022-7 redundancy as well as non-bursty packet transmission/reception—all provided on-board the card with zero CPU usage.

The powerful X.mio3 IP expands upon the LE4 IP’s feature set by providing onboard de-interlacing, as well as broadcast-quality scaling and compositing—freeing up CPU cycles for other on-system processing.

At €1995 and €995 respectively, the affordable Matrox Monarch HDX and Monarch HD are fully enabled streaming and recording devices, now empowered with native integration for live streaming to two of the world’s most popular social media platforms, Facebook and YouTube. All that is needed is to pair the device with these accounts once and it will be automatically retained for all subsequent streams.

Monarch HDX is a compact, easy-to-use, single input, dual-channel H.264 encoding appliance. Two independent H.264 encoders allow streaming to two distinct destinations or the device can be set to stream and/or record with independent encoder settings. Designed for complete workflow flexibility, Monarch HDX features 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs with frame synchronization to compensate for unstable sources.

Monarch HD is a professional encoding appliance, capable of taking an HDMI input from a source such as a camera or switcher and generating an H.264-encoded stream suitable for live streaming. Simultaneously—for editing or VOD—the HD can record a higher quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive.

Matrox DSX Developer Products

Matrox technology enables OEMs to create advanced broadcast graphics systems, video servers, channel-in-a-box equipment, contribution and distribution encoders, and non-linear editing systems that provide 24/7 reliability in even the most demanding environments.

Through the DSX LE4 and X.mio3 product lines, Matrox delivers a full range of PCI Express I/O cards that are designed for optimal performance, flexibility and scalability. In addition to the broadcast IP cards, Matrox provides high-density SDI cards with up to 12 reconfigurable inputs and outputs, supporting SDI, 3G SDI and 12G SDI for SD through 4K/UHD resolutions.

The M264 Series of PCI Express cards deliver unprecedented H.264 density, with the lowest power consumption, in the smallest footprint. While the highest-end PCs can only manage to encode one stream of 4K XAVC class 300, Matrox’s line of M264 cards can encode/decode up to three streams of 4K XAVC class 480@60fps, 4K XAVC Long GOP or 4K AVC-Ultra—in real-time.

Matrox’s DSX Core includes the complete set of software modules for media processing OEMs need to create datacenter-friendly, virtualized IP broadcast solutions running on COTS machines that can be easily repurposed as needed.
