Matrox Monarch HD - HDMI Streaming Encoder and Recorder

MAT-MHD-I

The Matrox Monarch HD is a streaming and recording device with HDMI input/output that can stream live and record at the same time. The streaming and recording functions are completely independent of each other, so recording quality is not affected by streaming bandwidth, and recording controls can be handled without disturbing streaming operations.

The Monarch HD generates RTSP/RTMP compliant H.264 streams from any HDMI source using the built-in 10-bit encoder, scaler and de-interlacer. Record to H.264 MP4 files with 2 channels of AAC audio to an optional SD card, USB drive or mapped network drive. Network drives are useful if multiple users need to access the recordings. Streaming bitrates up to 20Mbps and recording rates up to 30Mbps can be assigned. You can stream to your own server or to CDNs such as YouTube.

MATROX MONARCH HD - STREAMING AND RECORDING HDMI DEVICE


Streaming and recording device
 designed for professionals who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record the master quality version for post-event editing. By separating the task of recording from streaming in a single integrated unit, it ensures that the Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are focused on delivering quality video to your audience while you control the quality of the archive.

From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocols. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive.

Matrox Monarch HD is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. Warranty extension up to 3 years, after registration on the web.

2x USB 2.0*

1x SD card slot**

Network mapped drive***

* Support for NTFS (3.1) and FAT32 file system. The Monarch HD will support writing to USB3 devices at USB2 speeds. Also note, there is a very high variability in the performance capabilities of “thumb” drives (even USB3 versions). Many are optimized for “read” operations while the Monarch HD requires sustained “write” capabilities. For best results, Matrox recommends using powered USB drives. If small portable media is required, SD cards may be more suitable.

** Supports SD and SDHC cards. Only NTFS formatted SDXC cards are supported. (Class 10 highly recommended).

*** Support for writing to shared folders in computers found on a network using Windows Share protocols (suitable for Windows system) as well as NFS protocols (suitable for Mac and Linux systems).

  

Recording Lengths

  

Maximum file length of 300 minutes—irrespective of storage type used. File splitting feature allows a user to record continuously for long periods by defining file segment sizes. The Monarch appliance will create these sequential file segments over the course of the recording operation without losing a single frame of video. File segment can have a length of 1 to 300 minutes.

  

Full Frame Rate

  

Encode frame rates selection includes;
60/50, 30/25/24 and 15/12.5

Note that the maximum encode frame rate is 30 fps when encode resolution is 1920x1080
