RedSharkMonarch of the When? The 4K Monarch Edge should be released by NAB 2019

Bas Goossens interviews Matrox Technical Marketing Manager, Dan Maloney, about the new Monarch Edge.

Expanding on the award-winning Monarch streaming and recording product line, Matrox Technical Marketing Manager, Dan Maloney highlights the new Matrox Edge. It’s essentially a multi-channel and 4K-capable H.264 encoding appliance, which the company says will encode and transport pristine-quality, 4:2:2 10-bit video at very low latencies.

At the moment it’s only a technology demo, but the company is planning to have the end user software required to run the product well in advance of NAB.

Have a look at it below. As Maloney explains it certainly opens the gate to a whole new set of workflows, especially in the remote arena.

“As bandwidth costs continue to plummet and infrastructure is more and more accessible to more organisations, we want to be able to offer tools where live production can be done easily and affordably,” he concludes.
