Matrox Video Previews IBC2023 Lineup
MONTREAL — Aug. 28, 2023 — Media technology innovator Matrox® Video today announced its lineup for IBC2023, where its experts will be on hand on Stand 7.B15. The company will feature the critical technology powering broadcast workflows for live, tier-1 programming; broadcast television; and specialty content production today and into the future.
Broadcasters, integrators, and developers will discover a range of production solutions:
Live Production – Software-Only Production of Tier-1 Live Content
Introducing Matrox ORIGIN, an empowering framework that redefines live production workflows for broadcast and media developers. A truly groundbreaking asynchronous and scalable architecture, Matrox ORIGIN offers a native, IT-based approach to television production, providing scalable, low-latency, and frame-accurate broadcast operations for tier-1 live television production. Bridging the worlds of broadcast and IT, Matrox ORIGIN guarantees synchronization throughout the live production process and overcomes the challenge of integrating video and IT. With the ORIGIN framework, accurate processing happens on any level within the distributed environment — on-prem or in the cloud. The framework manages inherent redundancy without requiring any additional intervention. It also supports redundancy across multiple Amazon Web Services (AWS) availability zones for mission-critical applications.
Matrox ORIGIN offers the freedom to choose on-prem or in the cloud, capex or opex, and best-of-breed products and services.
Attendees can learn about the potential of Matrox ORIGIN at the session “Live Production Unlimited: Making Time with Matrox ORIGIN” on Friday, Sept. 15, in Room G106 at the RAI. Join industry luminary Richard Cartwright as he unveils how high-performance, multicore, distributed computer systems can play with the meaning of time itself, enhancing the processing of live media streams without any compromise on quality. Attendees can learn more about the session and register their interest here.
• 1 p.m. — Press Session (30 minutes)
• 2 p.m. — Technical Session (2 hours)
Matrox ORIGIN will also be shown on Stands 8.B75 at Pebble and 7.B18 at RT Software.
Video Conversion — Monitor, Route, and Convert Media ConvertIP —
Visitors interested in signal management — including two-way, high-density ST 2110-to-HDMI/SDI monitoring and conversion — are invited to the ConvertIP pod. There they will see how they can reduce the cost of ownership, ease switching requirements, and gain baseband monitoring flexibility and redundancy with Matrox ConvertIP. Thanks to the new daisy-chaining feature in ConvertIP Version 2.0, users can even send multiple streams through one connection and display any stream on any connected monitor. These fanless, NMOS-aware devices are 4K- and IPMX-ready, support both ST 2110-20 uncompressed and ST 2110-22 compressed JPEG XS workflows and include PoE+ for easy integration.
Remote Production and Contribution – Encode/Decode, Talkback and Tally, Return Feed Monarch EDGE Encoders and Decoders —
For remote production applications, users can send up to four synchronized SDI broadcast-quality camera feeds from any location over the open internet and/or public/private cloud using just one Monarch EDGE 4K/multiHD encoder and genlockable decoders. Built-in features like tally and talkback eliminate the need to purchase extra equipment, saving money and installation time. New at IBC2023, Version 2.05 adds support for SCTE 104, closed captioning, and more for easier integration into broadcast workflows. Visitors to the Monarch EDGE pod will see how collaborator GlobalM depended on Monarch EDGE to cover Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral and why Monarch EDGE is “made for remote production.”
