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.
