Matrox X.mio5 Q25 ST 2110 25GbE and 10GbE NIC card

X.mio5 Q25 SMPTE ST 2110 network interface controller (NIC) card provides 25GbE and 10GbE interfaces for multi-channel IP video I/O from HD to 4K, with zero CPU usage. The X.mio5 Q25 card features on-board multi-channel HDR conversions along with motion adaptive de-interlacing, pristine scaling, and powerful compositing engines for high-density 4K video processing.

The Matrox X.mio5 Q25 network adapter offers complete ST 2110 offload allowing OEM software solutions to provide reliable and scalable COTS based 10Ge and 25Ge IP solutions. This ST 2110 NIC offloads all packet processing required for ST 2110-20, ST 2110-30, ST 2110-31 and ST 2110-40, as well as ST 2022-7 redundancy, to free up system resources. With ST 2110-21 packet pacing built into the NIC, software solutions can provide guaranteed narrow senders (Type N) under all conditions independent of CPU load and OS interactions. The X.mio5 Q25 ST 2110 IO cards also provide line rate capture allowing for wide asynchronous receivers (Type A). Both the permissive wide asynchronous receivers and the, ST 2110-21 packet paced, narrow senders allow software solutions to guarantee universal compatibility and interoperability at scale.

X.mio5 Q25 also offers integrated hardware based PTP support allowing for ST 2059-2 accuracy in the nanosecond range eliminating network jitter associated with COTS IP solutions. With built in support for NMOS Device Registration and Discovery (IS-04) and for NMOS Device Connection Management (IS-05), X.mio5 Q25 provides for seamless integration in ST 2110 environments.

With access to standard network functionality, X.mio5 Q25 provides a complete comprehensive COTS solution for software applications to seamlessly transition from SDI to ST 2110 with no hassle and guaranteed success.

Is There A Clear Path To An Ideal IP Broadcast Environment?

InBroadcast
By Alberto Cieri
April 2018
There is no denying that broadcasters worldwide have a cost-driven desire to move from SDI to IP. Broadcasters envision an IP video infrastructure built - as an IT data centre - on generic COTS hardware, allowing for a smaller footprint where systems can be repurposed.

Based on this desire, there is also a hope that these systems will be able to take advantage of the same NICs used in general-purpose networking. However, live uncompressed video is not standard network traffic and this is why Matrox believes in the need for video-aware COTS SMPTE 2110 network cards for IP broadcast workflows.
