Matrox Monarch HD Video Streaming and Recording Appliance / MHD/I


Matrox Monarch HD Video Streaming and Recording Appliance / MHD/I Product Info: Matrox Monarch HD is a small, easytouse video streaming and recording appliance designed for professional video producers to stream a live event while simultaneously recording a higher, master quality version for postevent editing or archiving. Webcasting to YouTube and Facebook Live is made easy through its simplified set up for these popular platforms. All thats needed is to pair the device once with these accounts and its automatically retained for subsequent streams. From any HDMI input source such as camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocols. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a highquality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a networkmapped drive. Matrox Monarch HD is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. •From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Monarch HD generates an H.264encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocols. •Monarch HD simultaneously records a highquality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a networkmapped drive. •Remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. •Provices live content to CDNs such as YouTube, Facebook Live, and Ustream; media servers such as Adobe Flash and Wowza; or directly to computer device found on a LAN. •Monarch HD supports sharing the H.264 encoder between the streaming and recording processes so recording quality and upload bandwidth are independent of each other. •Powerful and robust, Monarch HD offers simple, one touch stream and record push buttons, low power consumption, a locking power connector, and a fanless design. •Network or cloudbased video management platform developers, A/V integrators and valueadded resellers can use Monarch HD Dev Tools which include automatic configuration tools and the Monarch HD Control API •Monarch HD Control API is an ideal way to integrate Monarch HD functionality into an existing classroom, boardroom or other space equipped with a Crestron control system. Tech Specs: •Depth : 109.22 mm •Height : 30.99 mm •Network Interfaces : Connector: RJ45 providing 10/100/1000 BaseT Ethernet with Static or DHCP addressing Protocols: RTMP, RTSP/RTP. IPv4 Support. Unicast and Multi Unicast (number of clients may vary from 3 to 10). •Power : Line Voltage: 100240V AC, 0.5A Frequency: 5060 Hz Input: External AC/DC adapter IEC320C8 Output: +5VDC, 3A max Total power consumption: 15 Watts DIN4 Locking Power Connector Transport and Storage: Max Operating Altitude: 3000 meters Max Transport altitude: 12,000 meters Storage Humidity 5 to 95% relative humidity (noncondensing) Regulatory: FCC Class B, CE Mark Class B, ACMA CTick Mark, VCCI. RoHS Directive 2002/95/EC. •User Interface : Computer Based control: HTTP via standard PC or Mac web browser using Matrox Command Center. The simple Monarch HD Control API is also available to programmers to create their own application to start and stop the Monarch HD. Physical Interface: On Device push buttons for independent streaming and recording Start/Stop control •Kit Contents : In the box: Matrox Monarch HD device Matrox Monarch HD external power supply IECC8 power cords (US, GB and EU) •Inputs and outputs : HDMI Video Input: Progressive: 1920x1080 @ 60/59.94/50/30/29.97/25/24/23.98 Frames per second; 1280x720@ 60/59.94/50 Frames per second; Interlaced: 1920x1080i 29.97/25 frames per second; Video Input Format is AutoDetected HDMI Video Output: Preview output of video input signal. 2 Frame delay from input to output. Audio Input: Processes first two channels of audio embedded in HDMI input signal. Unbalanced analog stereo input via 1/8" (3.5mm) jack. Line Level. Audio Output: Passthrough of all embedded audio channels in HDMI signal. Unbalanced analog stereo output via 1/8" (3.5mm) jack – passthrough of input. Line Level. •Certifications : FCC Class B, CE Mark Class B, ACMA CTick Mark, VCCI •Operating Temperature (Maximum) : 40 C •Operating Temperature (Minimum) : 0 C •Recording File Format : File Type: Industry Standard MP4 and MOV files with two channels of embedded AAC audio. Recording Lengths: Maximum file length of 300 minutes irrespective of storage type used. File splitting feature allows a user to record continuously for long periods by defining file segment sizes. The Monarch HD will create these sequential file segments over the course of the recording operation without losing a single frame of video. File segment can have a length of 1 to 300 minutes. •H.264/MPEG4 Part 10 (AVC) Video Encoder : Resolutions: Selectable encoding resolutions ranging from: 128x128 to 1920x1080. Bit Rates Ranges Record Only Mode: 100 kbps to 30 Mbps. Stream Only Mode: 100 kbps to 20 Mbps. Independent Stream and Record Mode*: Recording: 100 kbps 30 Mbps. Streaming: 100 kbps 10 Mbps. Maximum combined total bitrate of 30 Mbps. *Note that when both streaming and recording resolutions are above 1280x720, the encode parameters must be identical for both processes. Completely Independent recording and streaming settings are available when either the streaming or the recording resolution is 1280x720 or below. Encode Frame Rates: Encode frame rates representing 1:1, ½ and ¼of the input frames rates are supported. Note that the maximum encode frame rate is 30 fps when encode resolution is 1920 x 1080 Encoding Profiles: Baseline, Main and High Encoding Controls: 2.0, 3.0, 3.1, 4.0, 4.1 Level Support. GOP Size and Structure. Variable bit rate support. Average max/min data rate controls. Deblocking Filter. •MPEG4 AAC Audio Encoder : Standard: AACLC Sample Frequency: 32, 44.1 and 48 kHz when digitized from analog source Channels: 2 channels Stereo (L/R) Bit Rates: Range from 32 kbps to 256 kbps •>Scaler : High Quality multitap 10 bit Down Scaler and DeInterlacer. Available to both streaming and recording operations. •Storage Types for File Recording : 2 x USB 2.0: Support for NTFS (3.1) and FAT32 file system The Monarch HD will support writing to USB3 devices at USB2 speeds. Also note, there is a very high variability in the performance capabilities of “thumb" drives (even USB3 versions). Many are optimized for “read" operations while the Monarch HD requires sustained “write" capabilities. For best results, Matrox recommends using powered USB drives. If small portable media is required, SD cards may be more suitable. 1 x SD card Slot: Supports SD and SDHC cards. Only NTFS formatted SDXC cards are supported. (Class 10 highly recommended). Network Mapped Drive: Support for writing to shared folders in computers found on a network using Windows Share protocols (SMB v1) (suitable for windows system) as well as NFS protocols (suitable for Mac and Linux systems). •Matrox Command Center Web UI : Status Page: Provides relevant operational information concerning Status of MonarchHD unit at that time including; Input video detection and resolution, State and configuration of Streaming operation, State and configuration of Recording operation, Error conditions, etc. Control Page: Recording and Streaming operations initiated here including Synchronized start/stop operations. Multiple Monarch devices can be synchronized in a Master/Slave topology to allow for synchronized record and streaming operations across multiple units via a single interface. Record Settings: Configuration of recording parameters set within this page. A number of presets are included which are selected based on post event use of the recorded asset. If file is to be uploaded for VOD purposes, a YouTube preset may be selected. If content is to be edited for high quality production, a higher bitrate preset may be preferable. Streaming Settings: Configuration of Streaming parameters performed on this page. The RTMP or RTSP credentials as well as encoding parameters are entered. Encoder presets have been included to quickly select an ideal encoder settings based on desired delivery resolution or bitrate. The loading of Flash Media Server XML configuration files is supported. Administrative tools: Device Naming, IP configuration, Date/Time settings and a variety of other tasks performed via this page. Additional Tools: Matrox provide PC or Mac based utilities to help detect Monarch HD Device on a particular Network (DHCP server required). •Rackmountable Yes •Streaming Video Formats Supported H.264
