New C-Series multi-display graphics cards, Maevex AV over IP H.264 encoders and decoders, and Mura video wall capture and display products to be showcased
MONTREAL — Sept. 15, 2014 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. will present new C-Series multi-display graphics cards for the first time at Security Essen 2014 (Germany, Sept. 23-26) on stand #2.0-428. In addition, Maevex™ H.264 encoders/decoders, Mura™ MPX video wall controller boards, and DualHead2Go multi-display adapters will be demonstrated.
Multi-Display Graphics Cards
Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards deliver outstanding performance, stability, and usability. Designed for use in a wide variety of professional environments, including security and surveillance, C-Series cards feature 2 GB of on-board memory and mini DisplayPort connectivity. Matrox C680, which enables synchronized outputs via board-to-board framelock, will be demonstrated at Security Essen driving a six-monitor video wall on which Axis IP-cameras will be decoded via Milestone XProtect® Smart Client.
AV-over-IP H.264 Encoders/Decoders
Matrox Maevex H.264 encoders and decoders deliver exceptional-quality AV streaming at low bandwidth over standard IP networks for display or for storage anywhere on the LAN. Maevex encoders, priced at only $999 US (MSRP), can be combined with Maevex decoders or a third-party software decoder to stream up to Full HD AV content to different displays and collaborative video walls. Security surveillance environments using Milestone XProtect can conveniently integrate Maevex to view Full HD 1080p60 AV-over-IP content from a variety of sources on the LAN, including the desktop of a system featuring the software’s Smart Client application—with live camera feeds—to share operator views. Maevex is multi-functional in design and can also be used to record desktop sessions to NAS, whether for review or evaluation purposes. Maevex comes bundled with Matrox PowerStream™ software for easy remote device management, stream switching and streaming/recording parameter adjustment, including user-definable bit rates between 100 Kbps and 25 Mbps.
Video Wall Controller Boards
Matrox Mura MPX Series capture and display boards feature flexible inputs and high-quality outputs allowing integrators, system builders, and equipment manufacturers to easily and cost-effectively build high-density controller systems supporting custom video walls of almost any size. Exceptional-quality scaling, switching, and compositing of source content, including from SDI camera feeds, is easily managed through intuitive software control options such as the recently released Matrox MuraControl™ 3.0 for Windows ®. At Security Essen, Mura boards will power a six-monitor video wall. Along with multiple Maevex decoders, different inputs—both direct and via a Matrox-powered player PC—will feed into Mura and help simulate a surveillance control room video wall.
External Multi-Display Adapters
Matrox DualHead2Go & TripleHead2Go external multi-monitor adapters add two or three monitors to a notebook or desktop computer. They connect to the video output of the system and use its existing GPU to provide high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across all monitors. At Security Essen, a DualHead2Go Digital SE will enable a three-monitor administrator console running a variety of apps. MuraControl for Windows will manage the Mura-powered video wall’s inputs. PowerStream will manage all Maevex devices. VLC will enable the soft-decode of Maevex encoded streams and replay recorded ones, including a desktop featuring XProtect Smart Client.
