The Monarch EDGE Series for remote production (REMI) offers 4K/multi-HD video transport for live, multi-camera events. Video professionals can select from a range of appliances to meet their remote production needs. The EDGE E4 4:2:2 10-bit-capable encoder is ideal for demanding, broadcast-quality productions. Programs destined for over-the-top (OTT) or cloud delivery can leverage the EDGE E4 4:2:0 8-bit-capable encoder. When paired with a Monarch EDGE encoder, the EDGE D4 decoder provides ultra-low latency, high-quality video transport.
The Monarch EDGE 4K/multi-HD encoder and decoder pair offer enhanced remote production (REMI) workflows. Available via the latest Matrox Monarch EDGE driver, Monarch EDGE can encode eight channels of audio per stream from a selection of 16 embedded audio sources per SDI input, allowing users to produce content in multiple languages simultaneously. Also included in the release is the ability to record to a USB drive or network attached storage, allowing video professionals to capture multi-camera ISO recordings for archiving, redundant back-ups in case of network interruption, or a master-quality version of live streams for post-event editing or video on demand (VOD) uploads.
Innovative Monarch EDGE technology delivers up to four synchronized HD-/3G-SDI camera feeds or a single 12G-SDI signal—in both native progressive and interlaced video formats—with glass-to-glass latency as low as 100 ms. As a result, these powerful appliances help broadcasters minimize the number of production staff and resources required in the field, making live, multi-camera event productions more efficient and highly affordable. For events with higher-density camera requirements, the Monarch EDGE's compact design ensures that two units fit into a single 1RU rack space to meet the needs of any-sized production. The Monarch EDGE encoder and decoder pair includes next-generation connectivity, including tally and talkback I/O, as well as support for standard MPEG-2, RTSP, and SRT streaming protocols.
The versatile Monarch EDGE encoder provides broadcasters with robust, low-latency, and dynamic H.264 encoding capabilities packaged in a compact, low power, and portable appliance. Programs destined for web or over-the-top (OTT) delivery can leverage the 4:2:0 8-bit encoder version, while the 4:2:2 10-bit capable Monarch EDGE encoder version is ideal for demanding, broadcast-quality productions.
