The Matrox Video advantage

high security standards icon

High security standards

Matrox Video 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.

proven reliability icon

Proven reliability

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 Video hardware and software components to the most rigorous standards—all under one roof.

integrated redundancy blue icon

Integrated redundancy

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 Video products offer several essential features that help organizations to build redundancy and fault tolerance into installations, and remove single points of failure that disrupt operations.

Extending the lifecycle of IT infrastructure is a growing need for defense organizations. Our AV-over-IP products use high compression codecs to reduce bandwidth usage. Moreover, with low power usage, silent operation, and multiple form factors, Matrox Video products can integrate seamlessly either with new technology or legacy equipment, enabling setups to scale as needed, without driving up infrastructure cost.

industry standards icon

Industry standards

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.
