Matrox M264 S2 & S3 Now Provide Unprecedented Multi-Channel Up-to-4K H.264 Encoding/Decoding in COTS Platforms
MONTREAL – August 31, 2016 — Matrox® Video today unveiled two new additions to the M264 family of developer products, the M264 S2
and the M264 S3, doubling and tripling the performance available in the M264 line. With the capability for up to 3 channels of 4K XAVC encoding/decoding in a single slot card, the M264 family now enables OEMs to provide multi-channel 4K production servers on a PC platform.
The 3/4 length PCI Express Gen3 x16 Matrox M264 S2 and S3 provide an instantaneous H.264 quality and density boost offering the pristine quality needed for broadcast contribution, production, and distribution. The M264 family can now encode/decode up to three streams of 4Kp60 at 4:2:2 10-bit, 30 streams of HD long GOP at 4:2:2 10-bit, or 48 streams of HD at 4:2:0 8-bit. The faster than real-time encoding/decoding ability of the M264 allows multiple blazing fast transcodes for distribution on
differing media platforms.
