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.

Featured workflows:


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.

High-density contribution

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.
