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.

Andy has spent over two decades writing about all aspects of the broadcast and film industries for a variety of high-profile industry publications on both sides of the Atlantic. During that time the industry has moved from 4:3 SD to 16:9 SD to HD and now on to 4K HDR. He's getting kind of curious to see where it goes next.
