An encoder that can flourish anywhere, be it in webcasting, remote production (REMI), or high-density contribution is Matrox Monarch EDGE.  The H.264 encoder is the undisputed number one choice in the video codec arena with its innumerable applications and universal availability. In a day and age when interoperability is key, the H.264 codec is uniquely positioned to minimize the challenges posed by a lack of interoperability as it can tackle a myriad of different workflows. Designed for convenience, Monarch EDGE delivers unparalleled, robust encoding power with the wide-ranging aptitude of the H.264 codec.

4K/Multi-HD Webcasting Encoder

In a media landscape filled with continuously evolving online video platforms (OVPs), traditional broadcasters are beginning to leverage their existing over-the-top (OTT) delivery methods to deliver content specialized for the web. By enhancing their means of linear programming delivery, broadcasters can expand their reach and meet their audiences through new online-only channels. Using the latest in webcasting innovations, such as high-frame rate 4K (HFR), 4K 360 VR, and multi-camera selection, which are only supported on desktop, mobile, and Smart TV web-based video players, broadcasters can easily deliver compelling live content. Designed to take on today’s engaging webcasting workflows, Matrox Monarch EDGE provides broadcasters with robust, low-latency, and dynamic H.264 encoding capabilities packaged in a compact, low power, and portable appliance.

4K/Multi-HD Remote Production Encoder

Affordably produce live, multi-camera events, while minimizing on-site expenses by keeping talent in-house with Monarch EDGE. A compact, robust, and low-power remote production encoder, Monarch EDGE synchronizes and securely delivers remote camera feeds to your master control room or cloud for production with remarkably low latency. Programs destined for web or over-the-top (OTT) delivery can select the 4:2:0 8-bit encoder version, while the 4:2:2 10-bit capable Monarch EDGE encoder version is ideal for demanding, broadcast-quality productions.

High-Density Contribution Encoder

The contribution or mezzanine-level encoding capabilities of Monarch EDGE provide broadcasters with a means to easily add additional or complimentary backhaul feeds, or redundant contribution channels of their primary feeds. This small-footprint low-power appliance delivers quad-channel broadcast quality with 4:2:2 10-bit HDstreams. It has enough encoding horsepower to simultaneously generate low-bitrate 4:2:0 proxy streams for each input, which can be monitored by any device on the network.
