Matrox X.mio3 LP is a low-profile, half-length PCIe card that offers up to eight reconfigurable I/Os, from SD to 4K. Multi-channel hardware processing accelerates compute-intensive operations including motion-adaptive de-interlacing, up/down/cross scaling and mixing/compositing for all resolutions. The card is the ideal hardware platform for OEMs who need to create advanced yet compact channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, encoders, transcoders, multiviewers, switchers and other digital media equipment. Comprehensive development tools in the Matrox DSX SDKs for Windows® or Linux® include versatile file reading/writing, memory management, streaming synchronization, and a large selection of software codecs and effects. A prototyping tool provides a graphical representation of all hardware components so developers can simulate and test their use cases within minutes, before writing a single line of code. From a single development effort, broadcast equipment manufacturers can create a variety of products at a full range of price/performance levels.
"Stability and performance are the most important aspects of CG systems,” said Charles Kim, VRi president. “We chose the Matrox X.mio3 cards for their multi-format 4K/HD/SD codec support in software and their more advanced on-board processing compared to other I/O boards. In addition, they have provided the high level of reliability so critical in CG systems where failure during a broadcast could be disastrous."
“The strong relationship between VRi and the Matrox OEM team has allowed Matrox products to be used in television production facilities throughout Korea,” said Mingkai Yang, Matrox director of sales and marketing for APAC. “This latest 4K character generator with the Matrox X.mio3 LP card offers broadcasters a powerful 4K CG platform.”
