Matrox Orion HD high-performance graphics adapter supports HD and SD video capture

May 25, 2010, The Vision Show, Boston, MA — Matrox Imaging today announced Matrox Orion HD, a graphics and video capture board that supports standard and high definition video inputs and outputs including 1080p/60.

Orion HD captures from two independent digital or analog HD video sources and can output these video streams, which can be different formats, on the desktop. With support for different interfaces and flexible connectivity, the board can also switch between SDI, DVI-D, RGB, CVBS (up to 3) and YPrPb signals on each independent path. This allows for capturing and displaying different formats: SD (NTSC and PAL), HD (720p, 1080i and 1080p) or typical PC resolutions up to 1920x1200.

With its Matrox-designed graphics controller, Orion HD acts as a primary or secondary display device. Captured video and images are displayed on the desktop or to a separate monitor exclusive to the application. Also supported is the option of adding standard graphics annotations.

To accommodate the demands of archiving and playing back multiple HD video streams, Orion HD incorporates a sizable amount of on-board buffering and a PCIe® x16 host interface. This graphics adapter is fully supported by the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) application development toolkit under 32/64-bit Microsoft® Windows® 7.

Matrox Orion will be available at the end of Q2 2010.
