MONTREAL, Quebec — September 14, 2018 —Matrox® Video today announced that it will participate in the IP Showcase at IBC2018, demonstrating the clearest path to SMPTE ST 2110 implementations. In a series of show-stopping, IP-based product interoperability presentations, the Matrox X.mio5 Q25 network interface controller (NIC) card will deliver multiple, game-changing 4K/UHDp60 channels over 25GbE, while the Matrox X.mio3 NIC card will provide multiple broadcast resolutions running over the same 10GbE network. OEMs are invited to discover how Matrox SMPTE ST 2110-based NIC cards will allow them to effortlessly build and deploy the world’s most advanced broadcast graphics systems, channel-in-a-box platforms, and capture/playout video servers for any 4K/UHD and HD over IP workflow.

The IP Showcase has been a feature at major industry trade shows since IBC2016 and has been instrumental in helping the industry to galvanize behind the standards-based approach to IP. The event is hosted by major technical and standards organizations within the broadcast industry—Audio Engineering Society (AES), Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU), Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers® (SMPTE®), and Video Services Forum (VSF).

“With purpose-built SMPTE ST 2110 NIC cards, Matrox is not only 100% committed to the SMPTE ST 2110 standard, but is also committed to providing OEMs with the simplest path from SDI to IP,” said Alberto Cieri, director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. “We do this by enabling OEMs with commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) SMPTE ST 2110 network cards that fast-track OEM development of cutting-edge, IP-based, multi-channel UHD/4K and HD broadcast equipment for 24/7, at scale operations.”

“The transition to IP is underway, and the progress we’ve made toward standardizing IP infrastructure and operations in the media industry has only happened because so many organizations have come together and devoted time and effort to the cause,” said Michael Cronk, AIMS board chair. “The IP Showcase is a physical manifestation of that progress, and we’re thrilled to see all the companies that have embraced IP technology and chosen to put their efforts on show for IBC visitors to experience.”

Matrox X.mio5 Q25 — SMPTE ST 2110 network card for IP workflows from HD to 4K
Equipped with 25GbE and 10GbE interfaces, the Matrox X.mio5 Q25 NIC card features multi-channel IP video I/O from HD to 4K—with zero CPU usage—on-board multi-channel HDR conversions, along with motion adaptive de-interlacing, pristine scaling, and powerful compositing engines for high-density 4K video processing. Architected as a video-aware COTS SMPTE ST 2110 NIC card, Matrox X.mio5 Q25 delivers 24/7 reliability and interoperability required of broadcast equipment, while offering the flexibility and scalability expected of IP infrastructures including standard network stack functionality. With support for four SFP28 transceivers, Matrox X.mio5 Q25 allows for PC-based platforms to receive and transmit four 4K/UHDp60, 16 1080p60, 32 HD, or any equivalent combination of flows over 25GbE. The Matrox X.mio5 Q25 card is also supported by the robust, field-proven Matrox DSX SDK, ensuring rapid application development and system deployment.

Matrox X.mio3 — Multi-channel video I/O over 10 GbE plus onboard video processing
The Matrox X.mio3 IP card offers multi-channel, IP-encapsulated HD and 3G video I/O for SMPTE ST 2022-6, SMPTE ST 2110, and SMPTE ST 2022-7 transport protocols with hardware-based packetization, plus onboard de-interlacing, scaling, and compositing to free up CPU cycles. The Matrox X.mio3 card is also supported by the robust, field-proven Matrox DSX SDK, ensuring rapid application development and system deployment.

The IP Showcase will take place in rooms E106 and E107 at the RAI Amsterdam during IBC2018, Sept. 14-18. More information about the IP Showcase at IBC2018 is available at www.ipshowcase.org.
