Matrox Monarch HDX DualChannel H.264 Encoder for Broadcast Streaming and Recording

Product Info:

The Matrox Monarch HDX is a simple and versatile video encoding appliance specifically designed for broadcasters and webcasters who need a flexible solution that is powerful enough to take on todays demanding webcasting and recording workflows. Monarch HDX offers 3G SDI and HDMI inputs with framesynchronization to correct any discontinuity at the input, and two independent H.264 encoders to can be assigned to individual tasks. Webcasting to YouTube and Facebook Lie 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.

•Monarch HDX H.264 video recorder can accept signals from HDMI or SDI sources. •The Monarch HDX can share 30 Mb/s of encoding capacity across two channels. •Each channel can stream up to 10 Mb/s, allowing you to simultaneously stream to two destinations or set the device for up to 20 Mb/s streaming quality for a single encoding destination. •Content is captured as either MOV or MP4 files to ensure that recordings can be played by viewers choice of application. •Monarch HDX dual encoders can broadcast a live webstream at one bitrate while simultaneously recording mastering quality H.264 files for immediate availability, such as post event VOD or editing with your NLE of choice. •When used as a webcasting encoder, the Monarch HDX generates an H.264encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocols. •Monarch HDX can provide live content to CDNs such as YouTube, Facebook Live, and Ustream; media servers such as Adobe Flash and Wowa; or directly to a computer or device found on a LAN. •Recordings can also be encoded at different bitrates should there be a need to deliver content to devices with varying decode or bandwidth capacities. •By targeting local and remote storage simultaneously, Monarch HDX ensures that no action will be lost should the network go down. •Ideal for broadcasters who require the integration of closed captioning while streaming and/or recording. •Monarch HDX can be controlled and configured via the Monarch HDX Command Center using any device on the network that supports a standard web browsing application such as a computer, smart phone or tablet. •Monarch HDX H.264 encoder provides a very useful low bitrate preview stream of the input directly n the Command Center UI. •Broadcasters, network or cloudbased video management platform developers, A/V integrators and valueadded resellers can use Monarch HDX Dev Tools, which include automatic configuration tools and the Monarch HDX Control API •Monarch HDX Control API is an ideal way to integrate Monarch HDX functionality into an existing broadcast facility, classroom, boardroom or other space equipped with a Crestron control system.
