“With its video recording and streaming capabilities, stability, and competitive price, I am pleased with the Matrox Monarch HD. For us, the biggest criteria were reliability and simplicity—and the Matrox Monarch HD fit both of those very nicely. Monarch HD does such a nice job of capturing content at higher compress rates, giving us smaller files, that it really makes our turnaround process for recordings faster, smoother, and that’s why we have gone that way.”

Field Report: Effortless Streaming

The Broadcast Bridge
December 2014

The Broadcast Bridge

“Streaming set-up used to be something of a dirty job. We used a station laptop, loaded like many station laptops with much more software than we need. Because of this, streaming setup tended to be time-consuming and problematic, and the streaming laptop took valuable real estate space in our cramped temporary control room.

At the latest Shootout race this August, we retired the streaming laptop and used a new Matrox Monarch HD for streaming. We couldn’t have been more pleased. It required virtually no real estate, was simple, powerful and it worked precisely as advertised. It was unboxed and set up with a laptop in about 15 minutes…”

Review: Matrox Monarch HD
Both streaming and recording in one device for a decent price

Church Production
March 2014

Church Production Magazine

"It’s not out of the question to find a streaming device or a recording device that does a great job for $995, but not a device that does both, and does them well. The Matrox Monarch HD is a fantastic solution for churches that are just getting started in streaming and would like to have a local archive. The easy-to-use interface and controls make using the Monarch no problem at all. The streaming/encoding options are feature-rich but not overwhelming, giving you a great compromise between usability and decision paralysis. It seems like Matrox has released a great product at a great price."
