For over 20 years, Matrox Video has steadily gained a reputation for providing high-quality, technologically-advanced tools for video professionals that combine multiple functions in a single cost-effective product. From the moment we first entered the traditional broadcast and post-production marketplace, we have consistently excelled at helping to drive production costs down and video quality up.

Anything worth streaming is worth recording

In 2013 we expanded into the webcasting market with Monarch HD a small, easy-to-use video streaming and recording appliance designed for professional video producers. From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive.

More is better

Building on Monarch HD’s success among broadcasters, event producers, medical facilities, CDNs, educational institutions, houses of worship, corporate communicators and legal videographers, we unveiled Monarch HDX at the 2015 NAB Show. Monarch HDX provides even more workflow flexibility featuring 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 using individual settings, plus an additional, dedicated H.264 encoder provides remote preview of the input.

Customization is key

Both platforms can be configured and controlled by simple web interfaces but also benefit from a comprehensive set of tools that lets network- or cloud-based video management platform developers, A/V integrators and value-added resellers harness the streaming and recording capabilities of Monarch appliances from within their own custom environments. Our Dev Tools include automatic configuration methods and simple HTTP-based control APIs. We also offer a control module for Crestron room media controllers and a Ross Video Dashboard control system.
