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.

Comprehensive Cable and Connectivity Celebrates 40 Year Anniversary

 

Comprehensive-Default-Logo--RGB-300dpi-JPG

 

This September marks the 40th year anniversary for Comprehensive Cable and Connectivity Company.

In 1974, the professional audio visual market was just emerging and the new small businesses across the country known then as “audio visual dealers” had a problem:  Whom do they go to get the connectivity, accessories and supplies they need for the equipment they are selling to local media, schools and businesses? Lucky for the AV industry, Comprehensive had the solution.

Originally known as Comprehensive Video Supply, Comprehensive began as a single source of accessories and supplies for the then up-and-coming “professional audio-visual” market. Sold exclusively through resellers, Comprehensive products, which included their now world-famous cables and connectivity products, were a must-have for every audio-visual and computer reseller. The same was true for the Comprehensive 200-page product catalog. Dealers could use the Comprehensive catalog as an invaluable resource, and have it custom imprinted with their business name and contact information for distribution to customers. (Keep in mind – popular use of the internet was still more than 20 years away, and it would be another 33 years before the first iPhone was introduced. Even the VCR had yet to be released).

Scott Schaefer, Comprehensive’s current President, commented, “Comprehensive was there at the beginning of both AV and IT. It is Comprehensive’s experience, commitment to reliability, value and service that has kept B2B customers around the world coming back year after year. We are so grateful for the decades of support that our industries, resellers, customers and employees – past and present – have shown Comprehensive. Without them, we would not be here today, and we never forget that. We thank each and every one.”

Over the years, Comprehensive built the business with a strong reputation for “putting its money where its mouth is” service by stepping up and standing behind its resellers and products from the very beginning. One of many enduring legacies that Comprehensive has given the industry is the ‘Lifetime Warranty’ on cable assemblies, connectors and adapters. While a marketing commodity in today’s internet age, Comprehensive takes those words very seriously.

“Comprehensive customers need reliability and service above all else. Customers come to Comprehensive because they know they can count on us; every product, every order, every time. ” said General Sales Manager, Martin Fensterstock.

Today, Comprehensive has grown into one of the leading connectivity brands in the U.S. and around the world and their reliability and service have become legendary in the industry. Over the decades, Comprehensive has truly become the “go to” company for B2B audio-visual and I.T. professionals in every industry.

In fact, looking at a partial client list of Comprehensive customers reads like a “who’s who” of technology, business, media, entertainment and government. Clients include: Sony, Panasonic, Disney, Microsoft, Apple, Crestron, NASA, U.S. Army, Columbia University, NBC, ABC, CNN   just to name a few. A list of resellers and distributors reads much the same – Ingram Micro, Anixter, AVI-SPL, The Whitlock Group, HB Communications, B&H Photo, New Egg.com, and the list goes on.

Originally located in Northvale NJ, Comprehensive was purchased by VCOM International Media Corporation in 1995 and has continued to expand even during the recent recession. With continuous, growing demand for their cable and connectivity products and services, Comprehensive recently moved into new, larger headquarters in Fairfield NJ. They are also hiring with many positions available.

Listening to customer needs, something Comprehensive has done since the very beginning, has led to many new and innovative products. The most recent being the extremely successful Pro AV/IT Series HDMI Cable family, which are the onlyHDMI cables specifically designed for systems integrators, corporate, government, medical and other demanding B2B environments. Exclusive features such as ProGrip® Connector Technology, SureLength® Indicators with cable lengths easily visible on all connector heads, as well as color Identification and 4K X 2K support are just a few innovations that customers can expect from Comprehensive products.

 In its first 40 years, Comprehensive became synonymous for reliable and innovative connectivity products that the audio-visual and I.T. professional could count on and that at least, is not something Mr. Schaefer thinks will change much over the next 40 years. “We are so excited about where Comprehensive and the market are going – 4K, HDBaseT, collaboration and the cloud, mobile, the opportunities are endless. Technology continues to evolve and advance and so does Comprehensive. We are doubling down on everything our customers have demanded from us in the past and building on it for tomorrow and beyond. The best is yet to come and like all things Comprehensive, you can count on that.”

DVEO Wins 2014 Worship Facilities Award for Best Podcasting, Webcasting or Streaming Product for Bidirectional SD HD Encoder/Decoder/Streamer

MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP™ Enables Churches to Stream Live Video from Remote Sites to the Web and/or to iPads or iPhones

San Diego, California — October 6, 2014 — DVEO, the broadcast division of Computer Modules, Inc. (CMI), announced today that their live video streaming server/decoder has won the 2014 Worship Facilities New Products Award for Best Podcasting, Webcasting or Streaming Product. The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP™ was chosen by Worship Facilities and Church Production Magazine editors, distinguished members of the WFX Advisory Board, and WFX management to join an exclusive group of organizations deemed the most noteworthy.

The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP is a real time bidirectional SD HD encoder/decoder/streamer for 2 way communications, with a one second end to end delay. It enables churches to stream live video from remote sites to the web and/or to iPads or iPhones, and also to stream the video to HD-SDI editing workstations. The system is also available with optional HDMI input and output.

“We are proud and honored that Worship Facilities Magazine selected the MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP for Best Podcasting, Webcasting or Streaming Product,” stated Laszlo Zoltan, Vice President of DVEO. “This encoder and decoder in one has quickly become a favorite with our customers.”

The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP can encode and decode HD streams at different resolutions. It can create multiple simultaneous high, medium, and low bitrate IP streams and send them to iPads, iPhones, content delivery networks (CDNs), and remote video capture devices. Each stream can have several proxies with different “Wrappers” such as HLS, RTMP, etc.

The highly affordable system is ideal for live streaming to or from church services, youth camps, festivals, weddings, funerals, etc. It eliminates the need for satellite uplinks and downlinks, saving congregations a considerable amount of money and time.

Trinity Fellowship of Amarillo, Texas, a large and vibrant church with eight campuses in Texas and Oklahoma, uses the system to improve the quality of their services. “Each campus sends a live video feed of their worship service,” says Michael Wells, Executive Director of Operations. “The video is stored on DVEO’s optional Stream Bucket™ archive system. Later we evaluate the worship experience, and each campus receives feedback.” (The MultiStreamer BD HD-SDI/IP ships with one terabyte of local storage. The optional Stream Bucket provides greater storage capacity and archiving features, including file organizing and time stamping.)

The system is able to upconvert incoming SD streams to HD. This is quite useful for receiving a live SD video feed and displaying it on an HD screen. The system also scales down HD streams to SD.

DVIGear Launches DisplayPort Cables Supporting 4K / 60Hz

Expands Line of High Performance Copper Cables

Marietta, Georgia    October 2, 2014  –  DVIGear, a leading manufacturer of digital connectivity products, has announced the introduction and immediate availability of High Resolution™ DisplayPort Copper Cables.  These cables are designed to transport DisplayPort signals with bit rates up to 21.6 Gbps. over cable lengths of up to 15 meters (~ 50 ft.).  These cables support uncompressed DisplayPort resolutions up to 4096×2160 / 60 Hz.
DVIGear HR™ DisplayPort Copper CablesEngineered to Support Ultra High Resolutions at Long Distances

Long distance transport of high resolution DisplayPort signals over copper cables must overcome several challenges, such as insertion loss, differential skew and jitter.  Insertion loss is caused by cable capacitance, which acts as a low-pass filter, blocking higher frequency signal components from passing.  Skew occurs when the differential DisplayPort signals get delayed and become out of phase as they pass over a long cable.  Both factors contribute to increased digital jitter, which degrades the performance of the cable.  This jitter becomes more severe with higher resolutions, higher bit rates and longer cable distances.  Conventional cables that support lower resolutions at short distances are often unable to support the data rates required by higher resolutions at longer distances.  The resulting video can be disrupted by visual artifacts or may not be visible at all.

To overcome these challenges, DVIGear’s HR™ Series DisplayPort Cables are constructed using heavy gauge 24AWG copper wires that provide superior ruggedness and durability.  The heavier wire gauge has increased cross-sectional cable area, as well as decreased capacitance and lower differential skew, which allows high speed signals to pass with minimal jitter.  These features enable cable lengths of up to 15 meters (~ 50 ft.) with full compliance with DisplayPort 1.2 signal parameters.

Comprehensive Line of HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort Copper Cables

For many years, system integrators, designers and consultants across the globe have trusted DVIGear’s line of copper cables thanks to their unsurpassed performance and reliability.  This comprehensive line supports high resolution HDMI, Single-Link DVI, Dual-Link DVI, and DisplayPort signals over long distances.  When coupled with DVIGear’s Active Cable Extender (ACE™) unit, the Super High Resolution (SHR™) Series HDMI, DVI, and DVI-DL cables support cable lengths up to 60 meters (~ 200 ft.).  All these cables are available in a wide range of lengths for immediate delivery.
