Military & Defense
Communication, Training, and Visualization
Whether on land, in the air, or at sea, military and defense applications demand proven reliability, security, and performance in the toughest conditions. To respond quickly to dynamic environments, teams must be able to monitor events as they happen, analyze the intelligence, and exchange data in real time and in a secure manner.
Matrox provides commercial-off-the-shelf hardware to address the unique needs of the military and defense industry—from control and command centers, to surveillance and training rooms. Complimentary access to our APIs and SDKs provides a complete hardware and software product offering for military applications.

The Matrox Video advantage
High security standards
Matrox products implement several security protocols to help keep critical systems secure. To safeguard physical assets, we implement hardware and software security measures that help protect against unauthorized access and tampering. These measures include verified and encrypted firmware updates, HTTPS control communication, lock-out services, continuous vulnerability updates.
Military and defense applications demand consistent performance and high reliability. Our integrated team of hardware and software experts is based at the Montreal campus, which also includes an in-house manufacturing facility and fully equipped quality control labs, allowing us to design, build, and validate Matrox hardware and software components to the most rigorous standards—all under one roof.
When running critical systems for control or monitoring, uptime and availability are crucial. Such environments require robust hardware redundancy and failover mechanisms that minimize downtime in the event of a system failure. Matrox products offer several essential features that help organizations to build redundancy and fault tolerance into installations, and remove single point of failures that disrupt operations.
Extending the lifecycle of IT infrastructure is a growing need for defense organizations. Matrox AV-over-IP products use high compression codecs to reduce bandwidth usage. Moreover, with low power usage, silent operation, and multiple form factors, Matrox products can integrate seamlessly either with new technology or legacy equipment, enabling setups to scale as needed, without driving up infrastructure cost.
We champion industry standards to ensure maximum flexibility and compatibility. And this means we avoid proprietary implementations whenever possible in an effort to maximize interoperability, including with third parties. Extensive interoperability testing is conducted in our in-house labs, making this one of our primary testing efforts.
Our expert team of engineers will work with you to find a solution that fits your needs. Matrox offers a broad product and intellectual property (IP) portfolio, as well as ready-to-use APIs and SDKs, to help the military, prime contractors, and general contractors customize and optimize the product to meet the requirements of the implementation.
