Matrox SMD-2 Streaming Media Decoder Matrox SMD-2 boards support large-scale high-density IP video decoding

Achieve Large-Scale High-Density IP Video Decode with Matrox SMD-2

The second-generation Matrox Streaming Media Decoder (SMD-2) is a multi-resolution, multi-codec, multi-transport solution that decodes—in parallel—large numbers of IP network video streams in several different resolutions and formats. Each SMD-2 board can simultaneously decode up to 64 CIF, 16 D1, or 2 HD 1080 streams. The SMD-2 receives network video streams from virtually any edge device, including IP cameras, encoders, media servers, and NVRs, and decodes and displays them at a 1:1 ratio—meaning every pixel decoded is seen on the display wall. With its capacity to cost-effectively support large-scale, high-density IP video stream decoding, the Matrox SMD-2 is ideal for use in security surveillance, public security, and critical infrastructure sectors.

  • High-density solution reduces equipment, space, and energy costs per video stream
  • Decode hundreds of SD streams and dozens of HD streams simultaneously using multiple SMD-2 cards
  • Increase your stream count with multiple rack-mount enclosures for larger scale projects
  • Compatible with a wide range of IP video devices
  • Supports RTP, RTSP, TCP, UDP and IP network protocols including Unicast and Multicast
  • Universal IP decoding for common codec formats (H.264, MPEG-4, MJPEG, etc.)
  • Two 10/100/1000Mbit Base-T Ethernet ports for separate networks or redundancy
  • Manipulate, scale, and position individual IP streams on a video wall through tight integration with Matrox display wall controller boards
