Booth SL6317 Matrox Video is showcasing the Monarch HDX dual-channel broadcast streaming and recording appliance, which features 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs with frame synchronization to compensate for unstable sources. Two independent H.264 encoders provide redundancy or can be set to stream and/or record at individual settings.

For streaming purposes, the encoders use either RTMP or RTSP protocol to deliver live streams to local or cloud-based media servers. In recording applications, the encoders write MP4 or MOV files to local USB drives, SD cards or network- mapped drives. An additional, dedicated H.264 encoder provides remote preview of the input.

New features include implementation of Ross Video’s DashBoard Connect protocols and the introduction of Monarch HDX Dev Tools that let users control Monarch HDX from within their own custom environments. Monarch HDX also can be integrated with a Crestron controller, which allows operators to start and stop streaming and recording from within the Crestron interface.
