Matrox Launches World's First Live Streaming Appliance Under $1000
that Simultaneously Records a Blu-ray Quality Video File—Matrox Monarch
LAS VEGAS – April 8, 2013 — Matrox® Video today announced Matrox Monarch HD™, a small, easy-to-use video streaming and recording appliance priced at just $995. Matrox Monarch HD is designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record a Blu-ray quality version for post-event editing. It overcomes the limitations of today’s content delivery networks that only allow recording and archiving at the lower quality available while streaming by providing two independent delivery channels in an integrated unit.From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. Matrox Monarch HD is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser.
"Matrox Monarch HD is the latest product that exemplifies what Matrox Video does best—provide high-quality, technologically-advanced tools for video professionals that combine multiple functions in a single cost-effective product," said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing at Matrox. "This is the first time that simultaneous streaming and high-quality recording can be achieved so easily and inexpensively."
Matrox Monarch HD will be demonstrated at the 2013 NAB Show in booth SL4616, April 8-11.
Price and availabilityPriced at $995 US (€799, £750) not including local taxes and delivery, Matrox Monarch HD will be available in June 2013 through a worldwide network of authorized dealers.
