Matrox is launching the Matrox Multi input/output cards, the world’s first four-channel 3G SDI cards for Mac, which bring a new level of channel density to Mac Pro and Apple Xserve systems.
In a single PCIe slot, a Matrox Multi card provides up to four independent inputs or outputs with up to 16 embedded audio channels per SDI stream. User-selectable combinations of 3G, HD, SD, and Dual Link are supported. The Matrox Multi cards are designed to let users get the most from the valuable expansion slots in Apple systems and eliminate the expense of multiple systems in many applications. The innovative features of the Matrox Multi cards make them the ideal choice for capture/playout servers, clip and still stores, character generators, graphics/production servers, and automation/master control units. The Matrox Multi cards are supported by the Matrox Software Development Kit (SDK) for Mac.
“Leading developers of Mac-based live production and broadcast solutions are now focused on porting their applications to the Matrox Multi cards,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager at Matrox. “We expect a spate of partner announcements at NAB 2010 and in the months following.”
