traditional SDI production workflows.

MONTREAL – September 2, 2016 — Matrox® Video today unveiled the X.mio3 12G multi-channel SDI I/O card with onboard video processing, designed to help broadcast equipment manufacturers deploy 4K SDI solutions.

Matrox X.mio3 12G is a half-length PCI Express card that offers two 12G SDI inputs, two 12G SDI outputs, and two reconfigurable 3G SDI I/Os allowing for 4K and HD simulcast for broadcast production. Multi-channel hardware processing accelerates computation-intensive operations including up/down/cross scaling and compositing for resolutions up-to-4K.

“4K is coming fast and some deployments, like production trucks, need a small footprint, one wire SDI solution,” said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. “X.mio3 12G, coupled with our M264 cards for 4K compression and decompression—including Sony XAVC and Panasonic AVC-Ultra production codecs—make 4K workflows as simple as HD.”

Enhanced by comprehensive Matrox DSX SDKs for Windows® or Linux® and unlimited Matrox applications engineering support, OEMs can easily bring to market X.mio3 12G based channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, encoders, transcoders, multiviewers, switchers and other digital media equipment.

The Matrox DSX SDK offers a common API across all Matrox DSX Developer Products providing a full set of powerful tools including versatile file reading/writing, memory management, streaming synchronization, and a large selection of software codecs and effects. A prototyping tool provides a graphical representation of all components so developers can simulate and test their use cases within minutes, before writing a single line of code.


X.mio3 12G will be on display at IBC2016 (Amsterdam, Sept. 9–13, stand 7.B29). OEMs can book a meeting with the Matrox OEM team to discuss the complete Matrox developer products roadmap.
