In its inaugural year, the NAB Show’s Product of the Year Awards program and panel of industry experts recognised the Matrox products as the most significant and promising new technologies in three categories at NAB 2019. In the ‘Remote Production’ category, Monarch EDGE – a 4K/multi-HD, low-latency encoder for webcasting and remote integration (REMI) applications – won a Product of the Year Award.
Matrox Monarch EDGE is a 4K/multi-HD, low-latency encoder for webcasting and remote integration (REMI) applications. A powerful H.264 encoder that can flourish in any workflow, Matrox Monarch EDGE is capable of delivering resolutions up to 2160p60 or quad 1080p60 for 4:2:2 10-bit, broadcast-quality video. This new encoder also offers flexible, future-proofed 3G/12G-SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 over 25 GbE connectivity, plus versatile multi-protocol support including RTMP, SRT, MPEG-2, and RTSP. Video professionals, system integrators, and broadcasting organisations are now equipped to easily address demanding requirements in new, emerging, and existing webcasting, REMI, and high-density contribution workflows.

Matrox Implements NEWTEK NDI® for DSX SDK Developers (5 April 2018) — Matrox® Video today announced support for the widely-adopted NewTek NDI® IP standard with the complete range of Matrox SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 network cards and DSX Core software products. Leveraging NDI, OEMs can now easily incorporate Matrox products with any NDI-capable device, significantly increasing the number of IP sources required in broadcast and live production environments. NDI allows video and audio sources to be shared bi-directionally across a standard 1 GigE network, eliminating the need for costly infrastructure upgrades, while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network. DSX SDK support now permits Matrox board-level products to become automatically discover-able on an NDI ecosystem and facilitates the transmission of many high-quality, low-latency, frame-accurate video and audio streams to all other NDI devices.
“The Matrox multi-channel video I/O cards are a natural fit in the NDI ecosystem,” said Dr. Andrew Cross, president and CTO, NewTek. “The industry-renowned video cards exponentially increase the video sources available for live production, creating new deployment opportunities for customers looking for a smooth path to IP.”
