Yesterday, Matrox introduced the Matrox Monarch Edge at NAB. This video encoder is a 4K, multi/HD, low latency webcasting and remote integration tool.
This new encoder is capable of creating resolution up to 3840 x 2160p60 or quad 1920 x 1080p60 for broadcast quality video. The Matrox Monarch Edge offers users future-proofed 3G/12G-SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 over 25 GbE connectivity. The encoder also features versatile multi-protocol support including RTMP, SRT, MPEG-2, and RTSP.
Monarch Edge is a robust broadcasting tool with low-latency and H.264 encoding capabilities. This is a perfect tool to help users extend their reach while utilizing Matrox's newest webcasting innovation.
Users can also use the Monarch Edge to produce and broadcast live multi camera projects- such as sporting events. However, broadcasters can now keep their talent in-studio, creating a product at a minimal cost. Monarch Edge connects secure remote camera feeds to a productions master control room or production cloud, where video and graphics can be mixed.
Monarch Edge also provides additional back haul feeds, or redundant power contribution channels to the primary feed. The encoder delivers four channels at 4:2:2 10-bit broadcast quality streams. At the same time, the Monarch Edge generates simultaneous proxy streams to all four of it's inputs- available to be monitored anywhere on the network.
