Matrox provides reliable hardware and comprehensive software tools designed in tandem to ensure the highest, trouble-free performance. For over 40 years OEMs have depended on Matrox to create many of the world’s finest broadcast graphics systems, channel-in-a-box systems, video servers and other PC-based video equipment used around the world in even the most demanding environments. Staying at the forefront of evolving broadcast technology, Matrox has helped customers navigate smoothly from analog to SDI, SD to HD then UHD, and now SDI to SMPTE ST 2110. Our investment of over a million man-hours in perfecting flexible building blocks lets developers easily create a full range of products.
Matrox ST 2110 network adapters offer a comprehensive ST 2110 solution to build reliable and scalable COTS based 10GE and 25Ge IP solutions. Matrox ST 2110 NICs offload all packet processing required for ST 2110-20, ST 2110-30, ST 2110-31 and ST 2110-40, as well as ST 2022-7 redundancy, to free up system resources. Matrox ST 2110 NICs are architected for universal compatibility by providing narrow senders (Type N)—paced in hardware according to ST 2110-21-- as well as providing line-rate capture for wide asynchronous receivers. The ST 2110 IO cards also integrate hardware-based PTP allowing for ST 2059-2 accuracy in the nanosecond range—eliminating network jitter associated with software-based IP solutions.
Matrox delivers a full range of SDI IO cards that are designed for optimal performance, flexibility, and scalability. High-density SDI cards provide up to 12 reconfigurable inputs and outputs with support for SD, HD, 3G and 12G SDI for SD through 4K/UHD resolutions. The video capture cards share the same memory-centric architecture featuring high-speed transfers to co-processors, GPUs, and CPU memory. Some cards are equipped with video processing engines for multi-channel HDR conversions, motion-adaptive de-interlacing, pristine scaling, and powerful compositing for high-density 4K video processing. Built-in frame synchronization for each video input and fail-safe capabilities add the reliability to be able to deal with any signal or harsh environment that your solution might face.
Matrox hardware-based H.264 codec cards provide multi-channel encoding/decoding in pristine quality and exceptional performance for Baseline to High 10 Intra profiles up to Level 5.2. In 4:2:2 10-bit, these cards can encode/decode up to four streams of 4Kp60 or 40 streams of HD; and in 4:2:0 8-bit, up to 64 streams of HD. Develop high-quality encoding and decoding applications up to 4K/UHD, for on-premises as well as cloud-based deployments throughout the broadcast chain with the Matrox DSX software development kit. The M264 family of cards provide complete CPU offload of encoding/decoding 4K XAVC Intra Class 300/480 and XAVC 4K Long 4:2:2 for 4K production workflows while the highest-end multi-socket PCs struggle to achieve just one real-time encode.
Matrox DSX Core includes the complete set of software modules for media processing OEMs need to create datacenter-friendly, virtualized IP broadcast solutions running on COTS machines that can be easily repurposed as needed. It is designed specifically for the cloud and provides built-in redundancy, disaster recovery, frame-accurate control for AV sync, and extensive file format support to ensure interoperability. It enables end customers to quickly deploy specialty or event-based channels without additional capital expenditure. The virtual framework maximizes ROI on existing systems while creating exciting new business opportunities.
The field-proven Matrox DSX SDK lets OEMs create hardware-based equipment or virtualized IP systems in record time. Powerful development tools are continuously updated to meet the evolving demands of the broadcast industry. Support for new IP transport protocols, file formats, video, and audio codecs and expanded metadata keep the development efforts agile, enable OEMs to build versatile solutions faster, and ensure interoperability in any broadcast environment. A prototyping tool provides a graphical representation of all components so developers can simulate and test use cases within minutes, before writing a single line of code.
