The technology behind the delivery of content to a video wall needs to be robust, versatile, and easy to implement. Matrox Graphics Inc. is helping OEMs and integrators deploy state-of-the-art video walls with the introduction of two products: the Matrox Mura IPX 12G-SDI capture and IP encode/decode cards are the product range’s inaugural set of SDI cards, while the Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP decode cards extend the already-available DisplayPort-based offering.

The new Mura IPX capture cards now allow OEMs and system integrators to mix and match a premium selection of 12G-SDI and 4K DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI options to capture, stream, and record desktop and video wall content to local and/or networked video walls.
Matrox Mura IPX 12G-SDI and IP encode/decode capture cards
Featuring SDI support from a single card, the Matrox Mura IPX SDI cards boast two 12G-SDI and two 3G-SDI connectors to capture a wide range of SDI sources. These cards also include a dedicated onboard network interface controller (NIC) for high-density encoding and decoding of up to two 4Kp60, four 4Kp30, eight 1080p60, sixteen 1080p30, or exponentially more SD streams. The Mura IPX 12G-SDI cards are available in passive and active cooling options.
Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP decode cards
The Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort cards feature two full-size DisplayPort 1.2 connectors for native capture of 4Kp60 physical sources and full 4:4:4 color sampling support. The ability to capture and transfer multiple 4Kp60 channels over the bus without any color-quality degradation is essential to delivering both fast-moving video content and high-frequency desktop graphics and text. The cards also offer the same high-density decode capabilities as the Matrox Mura IPX SDI SKUs. The Mura IPX DisplayPort cards are also available in passive and active cooling options.
Software and APIs
The new Matrox Mura IPX capture cards include the complete range of video wall software, APIs, and libraries. These software toolkits allow OEMs and developers to deploy intuitive, ready-to-use software and build custom interfaces and applications.
“Matrox is thrilled to add new 12G-SDI and DisplayPort 1.2 products to what is already considered the market’s most complete range of capture and video wall cards,” says Fadhl Al-Bayaty, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “We proudly work closely with valued partners to help them broaden their deployment opportunities while streamlining their system development and integration process. When it comes to video wall flexibility, density, performance, and scalability, Matrox’s building blocks surpass anything currently available on the market.”
Matrox Mura IPX 4K DisplayPort capture and IP decode cards in both passive and active cooling versions will be available in Q1 2019, while the Matrox Mura IPX 12G-SDI capture and IP encode/decode cards in passive and active cooling SKUs will be available in Q2 2019.
