Matrox Video will showcase video streaming and recording appliances, live production streaming systems, 4k video monitoring cards, multiviewers, scan converters and developer products. Matrox Monarch HD is a small, easy-to-use H.264 encoder designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously stream a live event and record a mastering-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, Monarch HD simultaneously records a high- quality MP4 or MOV fi le to an SD card, a USB drive, or a network- mapped drive. It is remotely controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser. www.matrox.com P anasonic will debut its new camera that shoots 4k raw - the Varicam 35 and will demonstrate the third-generation VariCam® - the VariCam HS.
