This award-winning portfolio includes SDI video I/O and SMPTE ST 2110 25 GbE NIC cards for advanced capture/playout servers and CGs, as well as hardware codec cards—with multi-channel H.264/XAVC/AVC-Ultra encoding/decoding—for 4K/UHD ingest and replay systems. These developer cards feature onboard video processing for multi-channel SDR/HDR video applications, while all hardware components share a common SDK. The Monarch range of Full HD streaming and recording appliances meanwhile, are ideal for live webcasting and lecture capture. Finally, the new Monarch EDGE 4K UHD/multi-HD, low-latency encoder with next-generation I/O (12G-SDI and ST 2110) is designed for webcasting, remote integration (REMI), high-density contribution workflows.

Product Description

Matrox Monarch EDGE 4K UHD/Multi-HD Webcasting and Remote Production Encoder

The Matrox® Monarch EDGE is a 4K UHD/multi-HD, low-latency encoder with next-generation I/O (12G SDI and SMPTE ST 2110). Monarch EDGE delivers resolutions up to 3840x2160p60 or quad 1920x1080p60 video while offering flexible 3G/12G-SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 25 GbE connectivity with multi-protocol streaming options. Priced at just $7,495 (€6,795, £5,995), the Monarch EDGE 4:2:0 8-bit encoder model is ideal for webcasting and over-the-top (OTT) delivery, while the Monarch EDGE 4:2:2 10-bit encoder version at $9,995 (€ 9,095, £7,995) is tailor-made for remote production and remote integration (REMI) workflows.

Webcasting workflows

Monarch EDGE features a robust and dynamic H.264 encoding engine that enables users to generate over 16 streams simultaneously to target top online video platforms (OVPs) including YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo, IBM Cloud Video, and LinkedIn—for unprecedented reach and exposure. Delivering an experience beyond that offered by traditional linear programming, Monarch EDGE can capitalize on the latest in live-event-webcasting innovations—such as high-frame-rate (HFR) 4K, 4K 360 VR, and multi-camera selection—to allow video professionals to stream compelling live content to laptops/desktops, smartphones, tablets, and smart TVs.

REMI workflows

Monarch EDGE allows broadcasters to produce live, multi-camera events with increased operational efficiency, while minimizing on-site expenses by keeping talent and/or production crew in-studio. The compact, low-latency, low-power REMI encoder delivers up to four synchronized, secure camera feeds from the field over IP to a centralized, in-house or cloud-based production system to produce high-quality live programming. With remote production, fewer production staff and equipment are required in the field, lowering travel expenses and logistical costs.

High-density contribution workflows

The contribution- or mezzanine-level encoding capabilities of Monarch EDGE provide broadcasters with a means to add additional or complementary backhaul feeds, or redundant contribution channels to their primary feeds. This small-footprint, low-power appliance delivers four channels of 4:2:2 10-bit, broadcast-quality streams. Monarch EDGE also has enough encoding horsepower to generate simultaneous low-bitrate 4:2:0 proxy streams for each input, which can be monitored by any device on the network.
