The line of lecture capture products under the Monarch brand was on display at Matrox Video’s InfoComm 2017 booth.
One of those products, the Monarch LCS, lets integrators define profiles for live streamed and recorded lectures by mixing camera and presentation material from SDI and HDMI sources. Once configured, the H.264 encoding appliance can be operated by anyone at the push of a button.
Daniel Maloney, technical marketing manager for Matrox Video, says the Monarch LCS also allows for recording composite material from two inputs.
“These multi-stream players now allow the viewer to take the files and mix-and-match the presentation or videocamera materials,” Maloney says. “We can now pull down schedules, program them automatically, and redeliver them.”
More from Matrox on the Monarch LCS:
Complex recording equipment is no longer required to effectively capture presentations in lecture halls. A typical setup would consist of video and audio of the presenter and a computer source with supporting material which can be mixed into a single webcast. The operator can select a number of operating modes that include layouts such as Picture-in-picture and Side-by-side. If the operator prefers to dynamically change the inputs throughout the lecture, the Monarch LCS also offers Switcher mode. With very little set up time, the Monarch LCS can be configured to capture and deliver content such as presentations and seminars in many appealing layouts.
Matrox Monarch LCS can be controlled and configured via the Monarch LCS Command Center using any device on the network that supports a standard web browsing application such as a tablet. The interface is designed for operator ease-of-use and features one-click operation to start encoding from anywhere within the user interface. Designed to work in network environments, Monarch LCS is a network appliance that facilitates a seamless integration into existing infrastructures managed by third party asset management solutions.
