Matrox Graphics has executed a major expansion to its capture card and video wall portfolio. The Matrox Mura IPX 12G-SDI capture and IP encode/decode cards are the series’ inaugural set of SDI cards, while the Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP decode cards extend the already-available DisplayPort-based offering. The Mura IPX capture cards now allow OEMs and system integrators to mix and match a premium selection of 12G-SDI and 4K DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI options to capture, stream, and record desktop and video wall content to local and/or networked video walls.
The Mura IPX SDI cards boast two 12G-SDI and two 3G-SDI connectors to capture a wide range of SDI sources. These cards also include a dedicated onboard network interface controller (NIC) for high-density encoding and decoding of up to two 4Kp60, four 4Kp30, eight 1080p60, sixteen 1080p30, or exponentially more SD streams. The Mura IPX 12G-SDI cards are available in passive and active cooling options.
IPX 4K DisplayPort cards feature two full-size DisplayPort 1.2 connectors for native capture of 4Kp60 physical sources and full 4:4:4 color sampling support. The ability to capture and transfer multiple 4Kp60 channels over the bus without any color-quality degradation is essential to delivering both fast-moving video content and high-frequency desktop graphics and text. The cards also offer the same high-density decode capabilities as the Mura IPX SDI SKUs. The Mura IPX DisplayPort cards are also available in passive and active cooling options.
The latest Mura IPX capture cards include a comprehensive range of video wall software, APIs, and libraries. These software toolkits allow OEMs and developers to deploy intuitive, ready-to-use software and build custom interfaces and applications.
Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP decode cards in both passive (part number: MURAIPXI-D2MHF) and active (part number: MURAIPXI-D2MF) cooling versions will be available in Q1 2019, while the Matrox Mura IPX 12G-SDI capture and IP encode/decode cards in passive (part number: MURAIPXI-E4SHF) and active (part number: MURAIPXI-E4SF) cooling SKUs will be available in Q2 2019.
