IBC 2012: New Fiber-Optic KVM Extension and Video Distribution Over IP from Matrox7 September 2012
Matrox Graphics is showcasing the new Matrox Avio F120 KVM extender at IBC 2012. It offers a high-perfromance solution to managing visually impressive digital media and entertainment content.
The company is also presenting the new Matrox Maevex Series video distribution over IP technology, which extends 1080p video to a network of Maevex Decoders.
The Matrox DualHead2Go Digital ME external multi-monitor adapter will, meanwhile, be introduced at the show. It has the ability to expand a Mac notebook’s onscreen space through the addition of two external DVI displays, enhancing the workspace and overall computing experience of users in the process.
The Avio F120 KVM extender will be demonstrated, showing how a high-end workstation can be placed in a secure, climate-controlled machine room and extend its dual-HD video, keyboard, mouse, and audio over a single fiber-optic cable by up to 2km. This is done without compromising the computing experience of the user or the security of the content. Avio’s uncompressed transmission maintains system performance and ensures the playback of HD, 2K, and 4K video without any dropped frames or added latency – a critical requirement of editing, production, and broadcast environments.
New Maevex Series technology will also be highlighted. Maevex Encoder and Decoder units will be demonstrated delivering one-to-many multicast Blu-ray quality video over standard TCP/IP networks with minimal network bandwidth consumption. The Decoder unit can notably serve as a standalone media player, driving content from local or networked sources. PowerStream software meanwhile lets users intuitively and effectively leverage Maevex, with applications ranging from digital signage to acting in collaboration with solutions such as scalable video walls in a vast array of other sectors.
Also at the Matrox booth, the DualHead2Go Digital ME will yield a cost-effective multi-monitor platform for more-effective multitasking across two 23in high-resolution DVI monitors. Connecting to the Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt output of a Mac® notebook, the DualHead2Go Digital ME is must-have productivity-enhancing gear for video editors and design artists in any content-creation or multimedia capacity.
