X.mio3 OEM card, VS4Recorder Pro multi-camera recording app and Monarch HD streaming/recording appliance to be showcased
Montreal — Oct. 16, 2014 — At Inter BEE 2014 (Chiba City, Japan, Nov. 19-21, Hall 6, Booth 6302), Matrox® Video and local distributor Japan Material will feature the X.mio3 family of high-performance, multi-channel SDI cards for developers, the new VS4Recorder Pro™ multi-camera recording and multiviewer app and the popular Matrox Monarch™ HD video streaming and recording appliance.
Also on display will be the Matrox Mojito™ 4K video monitoring card, the Matrox MicroQuad™ multiviewer, the Matrox Convert™ DVI Plus scan converter, the Matrox MXO2™ family of editing devices and the Matrox MC-100™ SDI to HDMI mini converter.
Matrox X.mio3 PCIe cards offer developers up to 12 reconfigurable I/Os, from SD to 4K, along with support for AES/EBU, LTC and GPIO. Multi-channel hardware processing accelerates compute-intensive operations including motion-adaptive de-interlacing, up/down/cross scaling and mixing/compositing for all resolutions including 4K. The cards provide the ideal hardware platform for OEMs who need to create advanced yet compact channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, encoders, transcoders, multiviewers, switchers and other digital media equipment. Comprehensive development tools in the Matrox DSX SDKs for Windows® or Linux® include versatile file reading/writing, memory management, streaming synchronization, and a large selection of effects and software codecs including ProRes encode/decode and XAVC decode in UHD. A prototyping tool provides a graphical representation of all hardware components so developers can simulate and test their use cases within minutes, before writing a single line of code. From a single development effort, broadcast equipment manufacturers can create a variety of products at a full range of price/performance levels.
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® or StudioCoast vMix software.
Matrox Monarch HD is a small, easy-to-use H.264 encoder designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record a mastering-quality version for post-event editing. From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. The Monarch SDK, an HTTP-based API, includes documentation and sample code that let AV and broadcast equipment developers write applications to configure and control Monarch HD streaming capabilities, giving them a very straightforward way to include a high-quality webcasting service as part of their overall product offerings. Monarch HD 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.
