Multi-Channel Multi-Format I/O Cards

Matrox delivers a full range of PCI Express I/O cards that are designed for optimal performance, flexibility and scalability. High-density SDI cards provide up to 12 reconfigurable inputs and outputs with support for SD, HD, 3G and 12G SDI for SD through 4K/UHD resolutions. Multi-channel video I/O over 10GbE and 25GbE cards provide IP encapsulation of HD, 3G and 4K video for all IP transport protocols. Built-in watchdog circuitry and intelligent SDI or IP bypass provide fail-safe mechanisms in broadcast workflows. Onboard DMA engines transfer data without CPU intervention. Some cards feature onboard compositing, de-interlacing and up/down/cross scaling to free up CPU and GPU resources.

Highest-Density H.264 Encoders and Decoders

Matrox’s latest PCI Express encoder/decoder cards are ideal for broadcast distribution, contribution and production systems such as video servers, IP multi-viewers, high-density media encoders, and transcoders for on-premises and cloud-based deployments. Featuring onboard codecs, they offer unprecedented multi-channel H.264 4:2:2 10-bit encoding/decoding density and quality with the lowest power consumption. The onboard multi-channel high quality motion-adaptive de-interlacer and up/down/cross scaler allow content to be repurposed into any resolution, which is particularly beneficial for OTT workflows. Sony XAVC and Panasonic AVC-Ultra formats are supported with real-time encoding and decoding to build multi-channel 4K production servers.
