Monarch HDX Technical Specifications
Rack-mountable: 1U, 1/2 rack (horizontal)
|Video Input Resolutions||
Compliant with SMPTE 259M/292M/424M (Level A) / 425M
Closed Captioning embedded in VANC of SD or HD SDI signals per SMPTE 334-1 or Captions found in Line 21 of SD signals per EIA-608 are embedded in the essence of H.264 as SEI NAL Units (CEA-608) as per SCTE 128-1 specification.
|Video Output Resolutions||
Preview output of video input signal. Preview output is available when source is SDI or HDMI.
0 frame latency passthrough of SDI Input signal. Output is a clean distribution of SDI incoming signal. Hardware bypass relay present in SDI signal path is "closed" on power failure.
When input is an SD-SDI resolution, the HDMI preview output will show video window boxed on an HD output.
Processes the first two channels of audio embedded in HDMI or SDI input signals.
Unbalanced analog stereo input via 1/8” (3.5mm) jack.
Passthrough of 8 channel of embedded audio channels in HDMI and SDI signals.
Unbalanced analog stereo output via 1/8” (3.5mm) jack—passthrough of input.
Note that all outputs are active regardless of audio and video input selection.
Maximum resolution: 1920x1080
|Color Space and Chroma Sub-Sampling||
|Video and Audio Processing|
The Monarch HDX contains frame synchronization circuitry designed to compensate for disruptions of the input signal. This circuitry is in place for both SDI and HDMI inputs. Streaming and recording operations will proceed cleanly with repeated or dropped frames.

2x USB 2.0*
1x SD card slot**
Network mapped drive***
** Supports SD and SDHC cards. Only NTFS formatted SDXC cards are supported. (Class 10 highly recommended).
*** Support for writing to shared folders in computers found on a network using Windows Share protocols (suitable for Windows system) as well as NFS protocols (suitable for Mac and Linux systems).
Maximum file length of 300 minutes—irrespective of storage type used. File splitting feature allows a user to record continuously for long periods by defining file segment sizes. The Monarch appliance will create these sequential file segments over the course of the recording operation without losing a single frame of video. File segment can have a length of 1 to 300 minutes.
