DirectShow Support

Matrox capture cards feature Microsoft® DirectShow® support, which provides OEMs and system integrators unprecedented integration flexibility to incorporate their existing applications into Matrox-based systems. With little to no development effort, existing third-party applications can be deployed instantly to interface directly with Matrox hardware to capture, decode and display baseband/physical and IP content onto multi-monitor and video wall configurations.

Take Advantage of DirectShow

Matrox Mura IPX™ Series 4K capture and IP encode/decode cards feature four types of DirectShow filters: basic filters, stand-alone filters and multi-decoder filters to capture the board’s four physical HDMI video sources, and an RTSP filter to capture the card’s IP streams. The filters allow the DirectShow multimedia framework to view the Mura IPX capture card as an input device. The Microsoft AVStream® interface—part of the same framework—then manages the video captures, and developers can choose to either code or use existing third-party applications to control the content. This direct, streamlined communication enables system operators to run any DirectShow-compliant software to playback video content, either locally or over the network, on familiar interfaces. Having multiple Mura IPX capture cards in a system also means multiple iterations of the AVStream-managed Matrox sources can easily be generated to support as many media streams and channels as required.
