NAB 2024: Matrox Video line up drives implementation of efficient IT- and IP-centric media workflows

At NAB next month, Matrox Video will provide product demos and feature customer stories that illustrate how the company helps broadcasters, live event producers, developers and manufacturers implement and improve their IP- and IT-based media workflows.

Visitors will discover products and solutions for remote production (REMI), contribution, distribution, operations and control, and Tier 1 live production in the cloud, along with the latest innovations for SMPTE ST 2110 and IPMX. Experts from Matrox Video will present on IP and IT technologies for media during the Broadcast Engineering and IT (BEIT) conference, and the company’s products will be showcased across the show floor in partner demonstrations of IP video workflows.

“With over 45 years serving as a leading provider to the biggest brands in the most demanding applications, Matrox Video has led industry transitions from analogue video to SDI and ST 2110/IPMX and is uniquely positioned to deliver the IP- and IT-based workflows powering production today,” said Francesco Scartozzi, vice president of sales and business development for the Broadcast and Media Group at Matrox Video. “Our NAB line up addresses that shift, and we’ll demonstrate practical media-over-IP applications that help attendees accelerate their workflows and improve their operations.”

Matrox Monarch Edge encoders and decoders offer features including ultra-low-latency multi-stream sync, 4K/multiHD support, tally, talkback and genlock. The upcoming 2.07 release introduces new capabilities, making Monarch Edge a versatile solution for backhaul, contribution, video transport and distribution workflows. Other features include HDR and Dolby audio support, VANC metadata for closed captions, SCTE-104 messaging for ad insertion, and SRT Stream IDs for easier stream routing.

Industry distribution platforms such as GlobalM and TechEx endorse Monarch Edge as the preferred encoder for delivering high-quality streams. A GlobalM pod at the Matrox Video booth will showcase cloud-based distribution workflows featuring Monarch Edge.

Matrox ConvertIP bridges traditional baseband and IP-based video workflows by converting HDMI or SDI signals to and from ST 2110 and IPMX. Demonstrations by Matrox Video experts will highlight ConvertIP’s daisy-chain capabilities, reducing total cost of ownership and increasing monitoring flexibility and redundancy. ConvertIP enables camera-to-IP production and integrates with Red, Panasonic and other ST 2110 workflows.

The latest updates to the Matrox DSX SDK, offering ultra-low latency for both DSX LE5 and X.mio5 ST 2110 NIC and 12G SDI I/O cards, will also be on show. The ULL feature enables sub-field or sub-frame video transfer at inputs and outputs, allowing low-latency broadcast applications to achieve a minimum delay of 1-frame for interlaced video and 2-frame for progressive video. The new large canvas feature enabled on X.mio5 ST 2110 cards allows customisable regions of interest from a large canvas to be output as multi-channel 1080p and UHD resolutions for flexible and advanced multi-screen display workflows. DSX SDK 10.5 also supports ST 2110-22 with JPEG XS encoding and decoding and adds native support for AWS S3 with the Flex Reader and Writer for cloud-based applications.

Also new is the DSX LE6 D100 ST 2110 network interface card. This 100GbE ST 2110 network card is designed for high-performance media environments including broadcast and virtual production. Featuring dual QSFP 28 connectors, this PCIe Gen 4 x 8 card offers up to eight channels of UHD@p60 or two channels of 8Kp60 input and output, all with ST 2022-7 redundancy. It has hardware-based PTP to provide nanosecond-range ST 2059-2 accuracy and offloads all ST 2110 packet processing from the CPU, which is essential for high-density and high-resolution applications. This card also offers ultra-low latency to minimise in-to-out latency for multichannel 4K and 8K applications.
