Matrox Video will highlight its AV-over-IP (AVoIP) technologies — including the brand-new Vion AVoIP gateway and Mura distributed videowall appliance — at InfoComm 2024, June 12-14, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Exhibiting in Booth W1132, Matrox Video will demonstrate an array of products for networked IP-based control rooms and other mission-critical environments, as well as for live events, and show how they enable users to control KVM over IP, stream over IP, power videowalls over IP and respond to critical events in real time.

“Driving next-gen AVoIP technology, including IPMX, Matrox Video manufactures the products essential to IP-based applications in mission-critical environments,” says Spiro Plagakis, vice president of product management at Matrox Video. “We’re excited to announce new products and showcase their critical capabilities in demonstrations at InfoComm 2024. Our new Mura distributed videowall appliance and Vion IP video gateway, with our range of video encoders and decoders, converters, IP KVM extension and switching solutions, and videowall products enable seamless collaboration over IP, enhancing operator efficiency and informing responsive decision making.”

Mura Distributed Videowall Appliance

The IP Mura distributed videowall appliance uses a server-less architecture and web configuration tool for easy setup and operation and delivers PTP-synchronized and frame-locked video to as many as 64 4K displays for the most demanding applications.

Supporting H.264 and H.265 over 1- to 2.5-GB networks, and controllable with the proven Matrox NetAPI, each Mura processor can decode up to four 4Kp60 streams in 4:4:4. With the new Matrox Mura distributed videowall appliance, system integrators can deploy high-density, cost-effective, fully IP-based distributed videowalls by reducing the need for extra hardware and cabling.

The Mura DVW demo at InfoComm 2024 will feature a 5×3 videowall, powered by five Mura appliances. A total of 15 4K displays will be frame-locked and perfectly synchronized, with the Mura appliances streaming content from a variety of sources including Matrox Maevex 7100 and Maevex 6100 systems, as well as the new Matrox Vion IP-to-IP gateway. Videowall creators gain easy control with the Matrox NetAPI and Matrox MuraControl for Windows software.

Vion AVoIP Gateway

Matrox Vion solves the problem of moving from one IP video format to another and is the first Matrox Video product to support NDI. The Vion technology showcase in the Matrox Video booth will demonstrate how this new multi-purpose AVoIP gateway enables flexible, easy IP video bridging and conversion, boosting productivity and enabling new local and cloud IP-to-IP workflows.

As an IP-to-IP video gateway, Vion is ideal for live production and collaboration, with support for 4:4:4 color and optional SDI/HDMI I/O. Vion converts to and from formats and codecs like RTSP-H.264 to NDI, NDI to IPMX, IPMX to SRT-H.265, and more, including transmitting NDI over SRT for internet-based transmission. Perfect for the most demanding AV applications, Vion preserves the fine details of desktop content with HEVC 4:4:4 codec support, says Matrox Video. With flexible, low-latency multichannel encoding, decoding, transcoding, and processing, Vion enables color space conversions, changes to streaming protocols and bitrates and transmits multiple concurrent streams.

Multimonitor IP KVM Extension & Switching With Matrox Extio 3 and KMLync

Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders and the KMLync USB keyboard/mouse switch enhance operator efficiency by enabling remote monitoring and control of systems across a multimonitor workspace with up to four 4K or 16 full-HD displays. At InfoComm 2024, Matrox Video will demonstrate its KVM matrix system over IP for multimonitor operator workspaces over 1-GbE networks, with fast switching. Using 4K multiview over IP, the demo also will show how users can visualize four video sources on a single 4K monitor and control them with one keyboard and mouse, realizing greater efficiency with seamless mouse switching.

Matrox Maevex Encoders/Decoders

Pro AV users interested in streaming and recording H.264/H.265 content with ultra-low latency can see Matrox Maevex 6100 Series and the new Maevex 7100 Series encoders and decoders in action. Enabling single and multichannel, ultra-low latency, low bitrate, high-quality, simultaneous streaming and recording, and zero-latency pass-through for real-time output of AV content in collaboration-focused environments, these Matrox products empower operators to distribute critical content to any location, in turn facilitating more informed and accurate real-time decision making. Users can pair Maevex 6100 Series encoders and decoders to achieve full-frame synchronization from multiple sources. The Maevex-captured streams can be displayed on a Matrox LUMA Pro-powered video wall.

Matrox LUMA Pro Graphics Cards

Videowall creators will see how Matrox LUMA Pro graphics cards produce versatile baseband and IP-based videowalls with robust H.264/H.265 decoding. LUMA Pro supports up to two 8Kp60, two 5Kp120, or four 5Kp60 DisplayPort 2.1 monitors, and users can combine cards for a high-density-output videowall of up to 16 synchronized 5Kp60 displays. Frame-locking up to four LUMA Pro cards facilitates easy addition and synchronization of displays. Leveraging Intel Arc GPU advanced media codec engines and supported by Matrox Mura software libraries, these cards enable the decoding and display of over 40 full-HD streams per card. Also on display will be the new Mura C4K quad HDMI capture PCI Express card engineered for video-wall use cases that require high-density HDMI captures up to 4Kp60.

Video Production, Routing & Distribution With Matrox ConvertIP Encoders/Decoders and Converters, and ConductIP Signal Routing

The Matrox ConvertIP Series of IPMX/ST 2110-ready encoders/decoders and converters enable interoperable, cost-efficient, and scalable IP video production, monitoring and routing. The ConvertIP demo at InfoComm 2024 will highlight the new Daisy Chain feature for flexible and redundant conversion and monitoring and low cost of ownership.

In live production applications, Daisy Chain facilitates efficient, cost-effective distribution of multiple streams of content throughout the physical environment. As a result, facilities get more out of any active network port, use less network equipment, and ease installation of network wiring runs. Complementing ConvertIP, Matrox ConductIP signal routing software makes it possible to discover, monitor, and route any AMWA NMOS-enabled SMPTE ST 2110 or IPMX device or signal.

NEW Lineup of Matrox DSX ST 2110 & IPMX Network Interface Controllers

Developers visiting the Matrox Video booth at InfoComm will discover the Matrox DSX LE5 D25 LP and DSX LE6 D100 network interface controller (NIC) cards, new additions to the company’s lineup of SMPTE ST 2110 cards that power flexible, cost-effective products enabling the broadcast and pro-AV industries’ shift to IP workflows. Offering multichannel video inputs and outputs (I/O) over 10/25/100GbE networks, along with the media processing-rich Matrox DSX SDK, these new NIC cards allow equipment manufacturers to design any type of IP-based application from low-density HD/3G/4K and 8K workflows at the right price point within one SDK.

IPMX will also be supported with these IP cards to provide RGB 4:4:4, custom resolutions, and custom frame rates, all requirements for media server applications that drive large LED content for entertainment centers and virtual production applications. Developers are requested to book an appointment to review the Matrox Video ST 2110 and IPMX roadmap.

Extended AVoIP Product Highlights

In addition to focusing on products designed for networked, IP-based control rooms and mission-critical environments, Matrox Video will present products, such as the company’s Monarch EDGE remote production and contribution encoders and decoders and its NIC cards for ST 2110/IPMX, suited for both pro-AV and broadcast applications.

Experts on the booth will be available by appointment to provide a closer look at the Matrox Video ST 2110 and IPMX roadmap, and to discuss other 2024 IPMX initiatives under way, including Matrox IPMX Smart Display Modules (SDM) for projectors and commercial displays; IPMX/ST 2110 IP-to-IP gateways to handle media/protocol/timing conversions including uncompressed/JPEG-XS and more; and Software IPMX products.

Matrox Video products will also be included in a demo featuring interoperability with other IPMX products, as well as AES67 devices, at the AIMS (Alliance for IP Media Solutions) Booth C6123.
