Matrox and ESP xMedia introduce cloud-based multi-camera workflows
ESP xMedia and Matrox have announced a cloud-based, multi-camera platform for live event and sports production workflows. Leveraging the Matrox Monarch EDGE 4K/multi-HD encoder, live event producers can now send up to four exceptional-quality, low-latency full HD camera feeds to ESP xMedia’s global cloud video platform, ESPxCloud (www.espx.cloud), and allow viewers to select from and switch between multiple broadcast-grade camera views.
Purpose-built for 4K and multi-HD webcasting, Matrox Monarch EDGE enables live event producers to create original user-selectable, multi-camera productions. The H.264 encoder captures and delivers the on-site program feed and multiple alternative viewing angles, each at full HD resolution, to the ESPxCloud video platform.
ESPxCloud’s elastic streaming technology then showcases the main window video content at high resolution, with the other secondary viewport windows set at lower resolutions, and switches when viewers change viewports. When required, multiple Monarch EDGE appliances can also be combined to support even more primary, secondary, or even tertiary camera views.
