What Matrox Video does best is provide high-quality, technologically advanced tools for video professionals that combine multiple functions in a single cost-effective product. We have been doing that in the traditional broadcast and post-production marketplace for more than 20 years, helping to drive production costs down and video quality up. Lately we have adapted and expanded our expertise to offer internet broadcasters innovative live production streaming tools at breakthrough prices.

Powerful Video Streaming and Recording Appliance at $995

Matrox Monarch HD is a small, easy-to-use video streaming and recording appliance that received four important industry awards at the 2013 NAB Show including a “Best of NAB Award” from StreamingMedia.com. Monarch HD is designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record a mastering-quality version for post-event editing. It provides these two independent modes in an integrated unit. From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. It is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser.

Turnkey Multi-Channel Live Production Streaming

Systems under $5000

Matrox has partnered with Telestream and a number of certified systems builders to disrupt the market by offering tightly integrated live production streaming systems at price points starting at under $5,000. Based on the Matrox VS4 quad HD capture and ISO recording card along with Telestream Wirecast software, these multi-channel streaming systems give internet broadcasters of sports, religious services, corporate meetings, and other live events an extremely cost-effective solution with features comparable to systems at many times the price. The VS4/Wirecast value proposition gives 80% of streaming professionals 100% of the features they need, at an unprecedented price.
