The M264 family can encode/decode up to four streams of 4Kp60 at 4:2:2 10-bit, 40 streams of HD Long GOP at 4:2:2 10-bit or 64 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 different media platforms. With onboard multi-channel, motion-adaptive deinterlacing, and up/down/cross scaling, the M264 family can repurpose content into any resolution before encoding or after decoding, particularly beneficial for over-the-top (OTT) workflows.
Specifically designed for high-density encoding/decoding (Baseline Profile to High 10 Intra Profile up to Level 5.2), M264 cards provide the highest possible quality, with ultra-low power consumption, and in the smallest footprint. The M264 S4, S3, and S2 cards are cloud-friendly and their resources can be shared across virtual machines.
Matrox M264 cards are the ideal H.264 accelerators for channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, multi-viewers, and switchers or to create high-density encoders, transcoders, render farms, and other broadcast media equipment. The Matrox M264 hardware is supported by the Matrox DSX software development kit (SDK). Please refer to the Matrox DSX Developer Products datasheet for information on file I/O, software codecs and CPU effects. The Matrox M264 family also provides plug-ins for H.264 transcode acceleration into the FFMPEG framework.
