Matrox at Streaming Media East 2014 — Product Preview

Video streaming and recording appliance and live production streaming systems to be featured

At Streaming Media East 2014 (New York City, May 13-14, Booth 317), Matrox® Video will showcase Matrox Monarch HD™ video streaming and recording appliances and Matrox VS4™-based live production streaming systems for use with Telestream® Wirecast® or StudioCoast vMix software. In addition, Matrox MicroQuad™ multiviewers will be demonstrated.

Matrox Monarch HD — Video Streaming and Recording Appliance
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. Priced at just $995 US, it provides these two independent modes in an integrated unit. 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. Matrox Monarch HD is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. The new 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.

Matrox VS4 — Live Production Streaming System
Matrox VS4 is a quad HD capture card for use with Telestream Wirecast for Windows or StudioCoast vMix live production streaming software. In a single PCIe slot, Matrox VS4 provides up to four independent HD inputs with up to eight embedded audio channels per source. It not only sends video feeds for streaming, it also facilitates ISO recording to disk of all the original video and audio feeds for post event editing via a Matrox plug-in for Wirecast or Matrox Video for Windows (VfW) codecs for vMix MultiCoder software.

VS4Recorder — Multi-Camera Recording App
VS4Recorder™ is a standalone multi-camera recording app bundled with Matrox VS4 quad HD capture cards at no additional cost. VS4Recorder gives live event producers complete independent control over capture of the four inputs connected to the VS4 to create files for use with popular editing apps from Adobe, Apple and Avid and for archiving. 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. New features include gang recording of an unlimited number of video sources, an H.264 codec with MOV or MP4 file wrapping so that files can be immediately available for upload to the internet; DirectShow filters for developers to incorporate VS4 functionality in their own applications; event markers for Adobe Premiere CC so that while recording, users can highlight moments of interest for quicker post-event editing; and settings for capture duration and file switching without frame loss.

Matrox MicroQuad — Multiviewer
Matrox MicroQuad is a four-channel SDI-to-HDMI multiviewer for 3G/HD/SD at a breakthrough price. It lets broadcasters and A/V professionals use an affordable HDMI display to view up to four SDI video signals and show or hide labels and VU meters. Its powerful 10-bit scaling engine and advanced filtering algorithms ensure a crisp, artifact-free monitoring experience. MicroQuad can be controlled using buttons on the unit itself or from a distance using a Windows-based app.

Nova Entertainment Deploys Matrox Avio KVM Extenders in Audio Production Studios

Zero-latency, zero-compression Avio 125 KVM extenders transmit dual-HD video and multiple USB 2.0 signals to production studios 120 meters from control room

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Nova Entertainment recently deployed Matrox Avio™ F125 KVM extenders to transmit high-resolution, multi-display desktops in their production studios with computing resources centralized in a separate area. Nova Entertainment operates commercial radio networks broadcasting in metropolitan and regional areas and was looking to provide their audio engineers with an uncompromised remote audio production workflow. By selecting Avio F125 solutions to extend dual-HD video and multiple USB 2.0 signals, their engineers can now produce high-quality promotional spots and commercials without latency or interruption.

Nova Entertainment Deploys Matrox Avio KVM Extenders in Audio Production Studios

Housed in a master control room, Avio F125 transmitters attach locally to Apple® Mac Pro® workstations running Avid® Pro Tools® software. OM3 multi-mode fiber-optic cables connect Avio F125 transmitters to Avio F125 receiver units stationed in different audio production studios up to 120 meters away. At the operator location, each Avio receiver unit connects two 1920×1080 Samsung® monitors and high-speed USB 2.0 peripherals including a keyboard, mouse, CD/DVD burner, and external hard disc drive (HDD). According to Luke McKew, Technology Manager at Nova Entertainment, the new workspace allows users to productively record, edit, and mix the latest audio projects.

“Working off a higher-resolution setup makes it easier for the audio engineers to see small changes within the editing software, while the ability to quickly burn a CD or plug in an external HDD without having to walk back to the control room greatly improves workflow and efficiency,” said McKew. “We highly recommend Avio to other stations that are looking to upgrade or install KVM solutions for their own audio production facilities as it is a truly worthwhile investment.”

Matrox Avio KVM extenders will be demonstrated live at NAB Show (Las Vegas, April 7-10, booth SL5019) and InfoComm (Las Vegas, June 18-20, booth 2247).

House of Worship Drives Triple-Screen Projection with Matrox TripleHead2Go

Catalina Church uses TripleHead2Go external multi-monitor adapter to revitalize its stage and enhance audience engagement

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Tucson-based Catalina Church created its new visually-stunning triple-projector setup using a Matrox TripleHead2Go external multi-monitor adapter. Sound and visual technology experts CCI Solutions recommended the low-cost, easy-to-use multi-monitor solution to drive dynamic, inspirational content across the three-screen-configuration, resulting in a revitalized stage design that has enhanced worship engagement.

Matrox TripleHead2Go at Catalina Church

Already familiar with TripleHead2Go for other house of worship installations, CCI Solutions connected the adapter to an Apple® iMac desktop computer to support three Christie® projectors. Featuring a compact black box design, TripleHead2Go easily connects to iMac computers via the Thunderbolt™, Mini DisplayPort™, or Mini DVI video output—depending on the model—without a need to open up the system. The installed RenewedVision™ ProPresenter® lyric and media presentation software meanwhile permits church staff to easily manage video and graphics on the screens, which can serve as a decorative design element, complementary showpiece for musical performances, or even an enlarged reading surface for lyrics or text.

“Visually our space used to have no focus and getting people to engage in worship was a challenge,” said Brian O’Morrow, worship pastor at Catalina Church. “Not only does our triple-screen system look amazing, it is super simple for our volunteers to use and helps us create the engaging, interactive experience we were hoping for.”
