With over 40 years of enabling successful development in live and post production, Matrox DSX SDK provides the reliability and stability that is required for demanding on-air broadcast operations.


All the key functions are included so there is no need to patch to third-party SDKs which could result in high maintenance and instability typically associated with multiple SDK support.

A unique prototyping tool, Topology Builder, lets you test your ideas without writing a single line of code. A vast set of sample applications, with source-code, lets you model your own code, shortening development and testing. Complete user guide and online help are available.


Sophisticated, built-in system clocking and time stamping mechanisms in the SDK guarantee frame accurate control of all components with very fine granularity. This allows developers to maintain synchronization and frame accuracy even in complex real-time applications.
