MATROX MONARCH LCS LECTURE CAPTURE APPLIANCE


With Matrox Monarch LCS
, IT administrators will find this reliable, standalone network appliance simple to set up and integrate into any open Video Management System (VMS) or Learning Management System (LMS).

Monarch LCS lets you easily define profiles for live streamed and recorded lectures by mixing camera and presentation material from SDI and HDMI sources. Once configured, this versatile H.264 encoding appliance can be operated by anyone at the push of a button. And it won’t break your budget.

Ceremonies, meetings, sermons, sporting events, theatre productions are host to a diverse range of events that warrant sharing with a broad audience. Webcasting is the next-best thing to being there in person, and offers tremendous value-add to organizations by letting viewers participate and watch in real-time via digital channels and popular social media platforms, such as Facebook Live and YouTube, and encouraging audience interaction.

Complex recording equipment is no longer required to effectively capture presentations in lecture halls. A typical setup would consist of video and audio of the presenter and a computer source with supporting material which can be mixed into a single webcast.

The operator can select a number of operating modes that include layouts such as Picture-in-Picture and Side-by-Side. If the operator prefers to dynamically change the inputs throughout the lecture, the Monarch LCS also offers Switcher mode. With very little set up time, the Monarch LCS can be configured to capture and deliver content such as presentations and seminars in many appealing layouts.





Features

  • Stream & Record HDMI/SDI Simultaneously
  • 1 x SDI and 2 x HDMI Inputs
  • Multiple Preset and Custom Modes
  • Switcher Mode for Live Control

Video Output

  

HDMI
SDI

  

Video Output Resolutions

  

Preview output of video input signals. Preview output can be mapped from either SDI or HDMI input sources.

Note that when input is an SD-SDI resolution, the HDMI preview output will show video window-boxed on an HD output.

When HDMI output is set to Preview Mode, refer to the manual for a complete description of behavior.

  

Audio Input

  

Processes the first two channels of audio embedded in HDMI or SDI input signals.

Unbalanced analog stereo input via 1/8” (3.5mm) jack.

Line Level

Recording Locations

  

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 and 15/12.5

Note that 50/60 fps setting is limited to following use cases:
Single Input, single encoder – 1080p60 and 720p60 supported in RTMP, RTSP or Recording modes
Single Input, dual encoder – 720p60 in RTSP and Recording modes

All other operating modes will limit the frame rate to the 30/25 fps setting regardless of encoding resolution.
