AV over IP: Full HD & 4K Real-Time Encoding, Streaming, and Recording

Internet Protocol (IP) driven infrastructures offer enormous potential to a wide range of applications. From digital signage to education, enterprise, government, industrial, and security, all can benefit from the now ubiquitous IP technology to transport video, audio and graphics—regardless of distance.

With the appropriate IP technology, it becomes easy to capture, encode, process, distribute, and control content to a wider audience; live or on demand, locally or remotely. With its 40 years of leadership in video and graphics technology, and a world-class portfolio of open-standard and interoperable AV-over-IP products, Matrox empowers you to carry out live streaming and recording applications from Full HD to 4K and beyond. Our products use efficient encoding, decoding, video processing technology, and popular distribution protocols, enabling ultra-low-bitrate transmissions on existing networks or dedicated AV local area networks (LANs).


The Matrox AV-over-IP Advantage

Widest Reach


Widest Reach — H.264 Standard

Matrox AV-over-IP products are based on the highly-efficient H.264 compression standard—the most universally deployed codec today. This advanced video compression format provides the widest reach, not just in terms of distance, but also the number of concurrent devices supported, and types of compatible devices that can be used, including wireless. You will be able to decode content anywhere on your network using any H.264-compatible device or software—virtually any PC, tablet or mobile phone on the market today.

Exceptional Performance


 Exceptional Performance

Matrox AV-over-IP encoders and decoders deliver unprecedented performance by supporting the highest-density (quad inputs at 4Kp30 and dual inputs at 4Kp60) and highest-quality real-time encoding, at a mere fraction of the bitrate required by light compression and uncompressed technologies. Our high-efficiency compression technology supports the distribution of audio-video data over standard one (1) Gigabit Ethernet networks while preserving exceptional quality. Real-time advanced processing is also supported, featuring best-of-breed scaling, multi-source compositing, cropping, and special effects. For co-located sources, products with multiple inputs and a dedicated onboard network jack means a smaller footprint, simpler integration, and less hardware maintenance.

For those in need of uncompressed or lightly compressed video over IP, Matrox also has standards-based leadership technology focused on removing the limitations of requiring transmitters and receivers to be from the same vendor. Matrox is working closely with standards bodies to evolve truly open video workflows.

Real-Time Full HD and 4K Encoding


Real-Time Full HD and 4K Encoding

Matrox encoders provide highly-optimized, low-bitrate, real-time encoding and decoding of multiple video streams from SD to 4K, which can all be simultaneously recorded. Support for class-leading YUV 4:4:4 and RGB 8:8:8 also ensures the best image quality on the market today, whether it’s for streaming fast-moving video content or high-frequency desktop graphics and text.

Scalable and Future Proof


Scalable and Future Proof

Our solutions let you deploy high-density, multi-channel 4K streaming immediately over your existing network, and our long life cycles for hardware, software, and APIs means sustained support from Matrox. Whatever the installation requirement, Matrox provides the necessary toolkit to create end-to-end solutions to make AV-over-IP content management and delivery easy for all current and future needs.
