Montreal, Canada, July 30, 2009—Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions, today announced the immediate availability of the new, unique Matrox VDA-1164 Video Decoding Accelerator. VDA-1164 supports simultaneous decoding of up to 16 D1 video streams from a wide variety of devices, while displaying the multiple individual streams in native resolution—at full frame rate—on up to four high-definition (Quad HD) displays.

"The Matrox VDA-1164 addresses one of the biggest challenges facing the IP surveillance market today by assuming all video decoding responsibilities from the host CPU," says Alain Thiffault, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics, Inc. "With VDA managing the decoding workload, the host system can be optimized to run high-end surveillance applications and analytics, maximizing system performance."

Consisting of an IP video decoder board and a full HD, quad-output board, VDA-1164 is designed for use in single-seat surveillance systems or in control room operator stations monitoring large-scale IP-based security networks.

Key features:

  • Supports IP cameras and encoders from leading manufacturers
