Matrox VDA-1164: Video Decoding AcceleratorVDA-1164 consists of two add-in boards: a 64-bit 66/100/133 MHz PCI-X video decoding board 
and a PCIe x16 quad-output board capable of powering full HD resolutions Matrox VDA-1164 driving four displays & multiple video streamsMatrox VDA-1164 driving four displays with multiple IP video streams of information

Accelerate IP video decoding. Offload the CPU. Maximize system responsiveness.

The Matrox Video Decoding Accelerator (VDA) was designed for large-scale security networks and installations that require live 24/7 monitoring of multiple IP streams simultaneously, at high/full frame rate. It is ideal for transportation and city surveillance projects that involve high-traffic areas, fast-moving objects and the need to monitor behavioral cues.

The VDA-1164 is a graphics board set, comprised of a video decoding board that can decode up to 16 D1 IP streams simultaneously, and a PCIe x16 quad-display output board capable of displaying the decoded streams in their native resolutions, at full 30fps on up to four high-definition monitors.

Though high-volume, high frame-rate IP decoding would traditionally require multiple workstations, the hardware-accelerated IP decoding provided by the decoding board completely offloads the host CPU. With VDA installed, a single workstation running complex video and situation management software can decode and display large volumes of high frame-rate IP.

  • Simultaneously decodes and displays up to 16 D1 streams*
  • Completely offloads the system CPU from the burden of simultaneously decoding multiple IP video streams, maximizing system responsiveness to alarms, operator interactions and other applications
  • Displays streams in their captured resolutions across multiple monitors, without compromising image quality or dropping frames
  • Supports IP cameras and encoders from leading manufacturers
  • Engineered to enable swift integration of new network devices—for a future-proof IP surveillance installation

*Performance dependent on codec and camera type.
