Matrox unveils new SDI video card20 March 2014
Matrox Video has announced the availability of its new X.mio3 LP SDI video card, part of the next generation of Matrox DSX Developer Products. X.mio3 LP is a low-profile, half-length PCIe card that offers up to eight reconfigurable I/Os, from SD to 4K.
Multi-channel hardware processing aims to accelerate operations including motion-adaptive de-interlacing, up/down/cross scaling and mixing/compositing for all resolutions. When configured with inputs, the card is equipped with built-in frame synchronisers to generate clean SDI signals.
"With the launch of the X.mio3 card, we are the first OEM supplier to provide everything needed for full multi-channel SD, HD and 4K broadcast solutions in high-density, low-profile cards," said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox. "OEMs can now cost-effectively pack an unprecedented number of I/Os channels with advanced hardware processing into 1RU and blade servers.”
Matrox X.mio3 LP is suitable for OEMs who need to create channel in a box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, encoders, transcoders, multiviewers, switchers and other digital media equipment. Development tools in the Matrox DSX SDKs include versatile file reading/writing, memory management, streaming synchronisation, and a selection of software codecs and effects. A prototyping tool provides a graphical representation of all hardware components so developers can simulate and test their use cases, before writing a single line of code.
