DescriptionMatrox Monarch LCS is an easy-to-use, H.264 based, content capture appliance that accepts video from any SDI or HDMI camera and presentation content from computers over HDMI. With its dual on-board encoders, inputs can be encoded independently and in sync for use with the latest multi-stream video players. Alternatively, the inputs can be combined in a variety of production layouts, including picture-in-picture and side-by-side, for use with standard video players. In recording applications, the encoders write H.264 files (MP4 or MOV) directly to network-mapped drives, or to local USB or SD card storage.
Generating H.264-encoded video streams at bitrates from 500 Kbps to 30 Mbps, Monarch’s powerful scaling, deinterlacing, and noise-reduction engines ensure only pristine images are sent to the internal encoders. For streaming purposes, the encoders use either RTMP or RTSP protocol to deliver live streams to local or cloud-based media servers. In recording applications, the encoders write MP4 or MOV files to local USB drives, SD cards, or network-mapped drives for post-event editing or archiving.
