Get a glimpse into how two universities use Matrox Monarch encoders to record and stream live events, lectures, and more to social media and other platforms. If you are looking into streaming events, take a look at this article - you'll find a number of good reasons to use any one of Matrox's Monarch family of encoders. From digitalmediaworld.tv Two universities in the US are using Matrox Monarch encoders, with multiple-channel and simultaneous stream/record options, to live stream and record events and lectures to their students, social media platforms and campus websites. They have been able to take on these new capabilities with the same production staff numbers, in fewer hours, and increase their audiences. Oklahoma State University (OSU) operates a video portal called OStateTV that captures and live streams events ranging from graduation ceremonies, performances and sports, to various speakers and seminars hosted on campus. The portal has produced over 1,000 videos and delivers about 100 live streams in a year. While OStateTV functions as a central video resource, the university also wanted to widen its audience through social media platforms like Facebook Live and YouTube. Their existing equipment - a content management system (CMS) and turnkey video production units - did not allow them the flexibility to live stream to multiple platforms in parallel.
