The Matrox Monarch® HD is a small, easy-to-use video streaming and recording appliance designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record a Blu-ray quality version for post-event editing.
From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocol. While encoding the video at bitrates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 file to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. Matrox Monarch HD is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser.
UPDATE - Monarch HD is now a part of the Works With Wowza partner program from Wowza Media Systems, LLC. Joint Matrox Monarch HD–Wowza Streaming Engine™ customers will benefit from enhanced integration and ease-of-use, simplifying their live streaming workflows.
Monarch HD users can now simply download an XML file containing all relevant credentials to connect to the Wowza sever via the Wowza Streaming Engine Manager admin panel, select an encoding preset and begin streaming.
