Matrox Video recently announced Matrox Monarch LCS Radar, a centralized monitoring application that provides a streamlined overview of multiple Monarch LCS lecture capture appliances, and unveiled the solution at ISE 2018.
The Matrox Monarch LCS Radar web application “allows IT administrators to monitor the status, health and activity of all encoders from a single dashboard,” according to the company press release.
“Overseeing the critical functions of every single encoder simplifies the maintenance and upkeep of the Monarch LCS devices, ensuring smooth day-to-day operations, whether for installations of one or more departments or deployments spread across multiple campuses,” according to the Matrox press release.
Accessible via any web-browser-enabled device on the same network environment, Monarch LCS Radar features a color-coded dashboard for simple, at-a-glance monitoring. Administrators can easily identify anomalies, while also allowing the user to access the current status of video and audio inputs, schedules, events and production modes for individual Monarch LCS appliances.

An integrated pane provides a confidence preview of audio and video inputs before or during encoding. Administrators can also automate email notifications should a problem occur. In larger installations where many appliances are deployed across the network—such as dentistry, business, and medicine departments—administrators can categorize units into distinct groups for streamlined management of one or more groupings.
To access a particular Monarch LCS unit, administrators can launch the Monarch Command Center web user interface (UI) to adjust settings, initiate ad-hoc recordings and more.
“We’ve been working closely with a number of universities to address all the most important features and requirements when it comes to monitoring multi-unit, campus-wide installations,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager at Matrox Video. “Administrators are now equipped with a single, comprehensive platform to monitor and maintain all units for smooth, simple, streamlined operations across the entire network.”
The Matrox Monarch LCS Radar centralized monitoring application will be available to registered customers as a free download from the Matrox site.
