Matrox Monarch LCS lecture capture appliances include flexible inputs (SDI/HDMI or HMDI/HDMI), simplified mixing with integrated production layouts (picture-in-picture or side-by-side), and synchronised dual-encoding allowing for multi-stream playback, putting layout control in the hands of the viewer. The easy-to-use Matrox Monarch LCS Radar centralised monitoring application allows IT administrators to monitor organisation-wide deployments of Monarch LCS appliances easily from one intuitive dashboard.
Matrox Monarch HDX dual-channel H.264 encoders feature 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs with frame synchronisation to compensate for any discontinuity at the source. A versatile appliance, Monarch HDX is ideal for demanding broadcast workflows, including webcasting to YouTube or Facebook Live while simultaneously streaming or recording to a second location.
Matrox Monarch HD H.264 encoders include an HDMI input—for sources such as cameras or switchers—to generate an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Monarch HD can simultaneously record a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, USB device, or network-mapped drive.
