New Fiber-Optic KVM Extension and Video Distribution Over IP Solutions from Matrox to Drive Broadcast, Post-Production, and Digital Signage Platforms at IBC 2012

Avio F120 KVM extender joins Maevex Series Encoder/Decoder pair and DualHead2Go Digital ME external multi-monitor adapter at Europe’s premier broadcasting conference

Montreal, Canada, August 20, 2012 — Matrox Graphics announced today the Matrox Avio™ F120 KVM extender will serve as just one of many high-performance solutions managing visually impressive digital media and entertainment content at International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) 2012, stand #7.B29. New Matrox Maevex™ Series video distribution over IP technology will also be showcased, extending 1080p video to a network of Maevex Decoders. The Matrox DualHead2Go™ Digital ME external multi-monitor adapter will meanwhile expand a Mac notebook's onscreen space through the addition of two external DVI displays, enhancing the workspace and overall computing experience of users in the process.

The Avio F120 KVM extender will demonstrate how a high-end workstation can be placed in a secure, climate-controlled machine room and extend its dual-HD video, keyboard, mouse, and audio over a single fiber-optic cable by up to 2 km. This is done without compromising the computing experience of the user or the security of the content. Avio's uncompressed transmission maintains system performance and ensures the playback of HD, 2K, and 4K video without any dropped frames or added latency — a critical requirement of editing, production, and broadcast environments.

New Maevex Series technology will also be highlighted. Maevex Encoder and Decoder units will be demonstrated delivering one-to-many multicast Blu-ray quality video over standard TCP/IP networks with minimal network bandwidth consumption. The Decoder unit can notably serve as a standalone media player, driving content from local or networked sources. PowerStream software meanwhile lets users intuitively and effectively leverage Maevex, with applications ranging from digital signage to acting in collaboration with solutions such as scalable video walls in a vast array of other sectors.

Also at the Matrox booth, the DualHead2Go Digital ME will yield a cost-effective multi-monitor platform for more-effective multitasking across two 23" high-resolution DVI monitors. Connecting to the Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt™ output of a Mac® notebook, the DualHead2Go Digital ME is must-have productivity-enhancing gear for video editors and design artists in any content-creation or multimedia capacity.

Matrox Video Products Group will also be on hand showcasing H.264 encoding accelerators; A/V input/output/monitoring devices for use with the latest Adobe®, Apple®, and Avid® editing applications; video streaming solutions; cost-effective HD-SDI scan converters; versatile mini-converters; and multiviewers.
