MONTREAL, Quebec — June 7, 2018 —Matrox® Video and 7thSense Design are pleased to announce the integration of Matrox SMPTE ST 2110 network interface controller (NIC) cards within the 7thSense range of Delta Media Servers. Using Matrox network cards, it is now possible to support multi-channel IP inputs and outputs of uncompressed video over IP. The market-leading 7thSense Proton, Nucleus, and Infinity Media Server product lines under the Delta portfolio, all support video over IP using SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2022-6 standards, and are ideal for projection-mapping for prestige live events, plus full projection domes for planetaria, theme park dark rides, visitor attractions, and more.

In parallel to some of the changes happening in live broadcast production, IT infrastructures are replacing traditional video connectivity such as SDI, HDMI®, and DisplayPort™ in a variety of AV applications, bringing new, creative ways to address high-channel-density projects. Matrox DSX LE4 IP NIC cards offer multiple HD channels of video I/O over 10GbE, while the next-generation Matrox X.mio Q25 SMPTE ST 2110 network cards will further enhance these density capabilities, supporting resolutions up to 4K with the 10GbE solution and up to four 4K/UHD on the 25GbE option.

“Matrox is proud to be collaborating with a market leader like 7thSense Design,” says Alberto Cieri, director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. “Matrox, as a member of the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), has made the commitment to support SMPTE standards for video over IP, participating actively in all joint multi-vendor interoperability testing and quality assurance events. Our NIC cards ensure data packets of video and audio are compliant with the SMPTE specification, and can be sent/received to any ST 2110 device for a seamless IP workflow.”

“The 7thSense core values of innovation, quality, and flexibility are matched by Matrox’s commitment to excellence, so this is an exciting partnership for us,” says John Higgins, product manager, 7thSense. “7thSense pride ourselves on being market leaders and continuously pushing our products to the cutting edge. We recognise the many benefits of video over IP and what this can bring to our customers, so we are pleased to lead this new connectivity into our market space.”

The potential for the new ST 2110 video over IP workflow goes beyond broadcast-industry use cases. The A/V and healthcare markets, for example, can also benefit from this reliable networking technology that can support live, high-channel-density, and high-resolution video.

Come and see Matrox at InfoComm 2018, booth N1322, North Hall front entrance to find out more about the Matrox range of SMPTE ST 2110 NIC cards.
