The Matrox Monarch HD is a stand alone video streaming and recording appliance. Once you take a few moments to set it up, it becomes as simple as turning it on and starting it after that. This makes it perfect for teacher and educational institutions that want to stream lectures or record them for future use.
If you’re in the market for a streaming/recording device like the Monarch HD, the chances are you already have access to image and audio capture equipment, as well as an outsource for live and/or captured content. The next thing users need to do, is check that the Monarch HD can access your network – once you have, you’re ready to go.
The Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocols. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, the unit simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. It is remotely configured and controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. Once configured, it can be controlled from pushbuttons directly on the unit. read more...
