YBLTV spoke with Matrox Graphics’ Director of Sales, America & Asia Pacific, Samuel Recine at Digital Signage Expo 2013. Along with retailers and digital signage integrators, we were treated to a demonstration of Matrox Maevex video distribution over IP devices and Matrox Mura MPXTM video wall controller boards working individually and in tandem. We saw the Full HD encoding performance of Maevex and an array of Maevex hardware and third-party software decoding options. Using the Maevex PowerStream remote control software, parameters like frame rate capture and bit rate targets can be adjusted to create a balance between network bandwidth consumption and image quality, while maintaining a cost-effective solution. Attendees at the show also had the opportunity to use the Matrox MuraControlTM for Windows or MuraControl for iPad apps to test drive the latest presentation effects on the Matrox Mura-powered video wall. A combination of streaming network sources, local media players and Blu-ray content can be captured, scaled, switched, rotated, cropped, framed, tagged and repositioned with stunning visual quality.
The Matrox Maevex video distribution over IP solution delivers one-to-one unicast or one-to-many multicast of Full HD quality video extension and playback over standard TCP/IP networks. Maevex Encoders and Decoders capture, stream, and decode video from a variety of sources, and even allow for software-based decoding on non-Maevex devices. Matrox PowerStream software offers a myriad of userdefined management features enabling administrators to control the Maevex network, streams, and devices.
The Matrox Mura MPX Series output/input boards feature highly flexible, universal input channel support for both digital and analog (DVI, RGB/VGA, Component, SVideo & Composite) video signals. Mura MPX’s unique ability to capture and display uncompressed data ensures impeccable text, video, and graphics. Mura MPX highdensity analog video capture cards provide additional NTSC/PAL/SECAM input channel support, while the Mura MPXSDI board includes support for two 3G SDI video inputs and two DVI outputs.
