The game-changing card enables OEMs to effortlessly build and deploy the world’s most advanced IP-based broadcast graphics systems, channel-in-a-box platforms, and capture/playout video servers designed for today’s HD and emerging 4K/UHD workflows.
In addition to being in the Matrox booth (booth SL4524), X.mio5 Q25 will be instrumental at the AIMS IP Showcase (booth C12634), feeding uncompressed 4Kp60 signals via SMPTE ST 2110 throughout the booth.
Architected as a video-aware COTS SMPTE ST 2110 NIC card, X.mio5 Q25 delivers 24/7 reliability and interoperability required of broadcast equipment, while offering the flexibility and scalability expected of IP infrastructures including standard network stack functionality. With support for four SFP28 transceivers, X.mio5 Q25 allows for PC-based platforms to receive and transmit four 4K/UHDp60, 16 1080p60, 32 HD, or any equivalent combination of flows over 25GbE. X.mio25 Q25 also includes high-quality on-board video processing to offload CPU and GPU resources. The X.mio5 Q25 card is furthermore supported by the robust, field-proven Matrox DSX SDK, ensuring rapid application development and system deployment.
“Matrox X.mio5 Q25 is purpose-built for SMPTE ST 2110, which means it meets and exceeds the industry’s most stringent reliability, quality, interoperability, and performance requirements when it comes to IP workflows,” said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. “Over the last 40 plus years, Matrox has helped customers seamlessly navigate from analog to SDI, SD to HD then UHD, and with X.mio5 Q25, the story remains the same for OEMs looking to transition from SDI to IP—with minimal interruption and maximum impact.”
