Matrox Graphics Inc. added to its award-winning video wall portfolio with the international debut of the Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP encode/decode cards at ISE 2018 in Amsterdam this week.

The new dual DisplayPort 1.2 capture boards “feature 4K60 full color support, providing systems integrators and OEMs the ability to seamlessly capture, encode, stream, record and decode 4K60 content—including fast-moving video content and high-frequency desktop graphics and text.”

That’s according to a press release by the AV solutions provider.

These new Mura IPX boards will make their debut at Matrox’s Hall 11, Stand D120, driving a variety of networked scenarios for today’s most popular video wall applications.

Available in passive and active cooling options, the latest Mura IPX cards feature two full-size DisplayPort 1.2 connectors to natively capture 4K60 baseband sources, while the network connector enables the encoding and decoding of up to two 4Kp60, four 4Kp30, eight 1080p60, sixteen 1080p30 or exponentially more SD streams.

System builders now have an easy option to satisfy the increasing requirements of multi-4K60 content—pixel for pixel—and can continue to mix and match from a wide selection of Matrox video wall cards to construct scalable, high-density, low-footprint video walls.

“We’re conscious of the challenges that our customers face—including the ever-evolving demands of 4K60 integration,” says Matrox’s Fadhl Al-Bayaty.

“The new Mura IPX cards further enhance our industry-renowned philosophy, which is to make video wall designs easy with multi-functional, multi-dimensional, single-slot boards,” says Fadhl Al-Bayaty, product manager at Matrox Graphics Inc. in the announcement.

“We’re conscious of the challenges that our customers face—including the ever-evolving demands of 4K60 integration—and are committed to equipping OEMs and system integrators with the right building blocks to satisfy any video wall requirement.”

Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP encode/decode cards come in passive (part number MURAIPXI-E2MHF) or active cooling (part number MURAIPXI-E2MF) versions and will be available in Q2 2018.

Matrox won a 2018 Top New Technology award in the video distribution solutions category at ISE 2018 for the Maevex 6150 Quad 4K Enterprise Encoder.
