New broadcast streaming and recording appliance, multi-camera recording app and multi-channel 4:2:2 10-bit H.264 encoder card to be showcased
At Inter BEE 2015 (Chiba City, Japan, Nov. 18–20, booth 5408), Matrox® Video and local distributor Japan Material will feature the award-winning Monarch™ HDX dual-channel H.264 encoder for broadcast streaming and recording, the VS4Recoder Pro multi-camera recording app and the new Matrox M264 multi-channel 4:2:2 10-bit H.264 encoder card for developers. The Matrox Convert™ DVI Plus HD-SDI scan converter will also be on display.
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.
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®.
Matrox M264 is the ideal multi-channel 4:2:2 10-bit H.264 encoder card for OEMs who need to add IP streaming capabilities to channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, multiviewers and switchers or create high-density encoders, transcoders and other broadcast media equipment. It can be used with industry-leading Matrox I/O cards like those in the new X.mio3 Series to create powerful hybrid solutions with baseband and IP streaming support all in one. Comprehensive development tools in the Matrox DSX SDKs for Windows® or Linux® include versatile file reading/writing, memory management, IP streaming, synchronization mechanisms and a large selection of software codecs and effects. 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.
