Monarch HDX is a dual-channel encoder designed for broadcasters who require the integration of closed captioning while streaming and/or recording.

At NAB, Matrox will demo the Monarch HDX's all new, captioning of live internet programming functionality, alongside its range of H.264 streaming and recording devices.

Monarch HDX (pictured above) is a dual-channel encoder designed for broadcasters who require closed captioning while streaming and/or recording. Retrieving closed-captioning data from the SDI VANC, the Monarch HDX’s caption-enhanced H.264 media can be streamed to video hosting platforms including YouTube Live and Ustream, media servers such as Wowza, or a variety of CDNs. MOV/MP4 files recorded with Monarch HDX preserve captions which can be included in video on demand (VOD) or archiving workflows.

Also Matrox will show its newly announced Matrox Maevex 6150 quad encoder, capable of capturing, encoding, and recording up to four 4K inputs. Streaming and/or recording of four or more channels simultaneously at high quality and low bit rates, the Maevex 6150 offers industry leading encoding and streaming density—all in a rack-ready 1U dual-density form factor.
