Matrox Monarch HD — H.264 Encoder

Matrox Monarch HD takes an HDMI input from a source such as a camera or switcher and generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, it simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive.

Matrox Monarch HDX fea¬tures 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs with frame synchronization to compensate for unstable sources. Its two independent H.264 encoders provide the additional flexibility to stream to two different locations or record files to two destinations. An additional, dedicated H.264 encoder provides remote preview of the input. New features include implementation of Ross Video's DashBoard Connect protocols and the introduction of Monarch HDX Dev Tools that let network- or cloud-based video management platform developers and A/V integrators control Monarch HDX from within their own custom environments.

Each VS4Recorder Pro system frame-accurately captures up to four video and audio inputs to create files for use with popular editing apps from Adobe, Apple and Avid and for archiving. H.264 is provided in either MOV or MP4 wrappers. AVI files can be created using the high-quality Matrox MPEG 2 I-Frame codec. MOV QuickTime files can be created using DV, DVCPRO, DVCPRO50 and DVCPRO HD. VS4Recorder Pro also functions as a multiviewer, offering pristine video quality even when monitoring interlaced sources on progressive computer monitors.
