Matrox Wins Four Best of Show Awards at InfoComm 2019

Matrox’s QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers, Extio 3 IP KVM extenders, Maevex 6120 dual 4K enterprise encoder, and Monarch EDGE 4K/multi-HD encoders were the recipients of four prestigious Best of Show Awards at InfoComm 2019.

The InfoComm Best of Show Awards were evaluated by a panel of on-site judges, including AVIXA and CTS-certified members, who selected these cutting-edge products based on innovation, performance against category standard, richness/relevance of feature set, ease of use, network friendliness, and value/ROI.

“This was a rich field of submitted nominations, reflecting the breadth of engineering, R&D, and UX talent we have in this industry,” said Sound and Video Contractor editor Cynthia Wisehart. “Congratulations to the winning teams. I look forward to seeing their products at work across our markets.”

Matrox QuadHead2Go multi-monitor controllers power any video wall configuration of any size, from any video source, with complete scalability and flexibility. Unveiled at InfoComm, the new QuadHead2Go controllers can each drive a single video source across up to four displays in rectangular or artistic configurations, or users can combine multiple QuadHead2Go units with Matrox or third-party graphics cards to create ultra-large-scale video walls.

Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders provide exceptional 4Kp60 4:4:4, dual 4Kp30 4:4:4, or dual 2Kp60 4:4:4 performance over a standard one Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network—at unprecedentedly low bitrates. The new Aggregator Mode also takes Extio 3 IP extension and switching capabilities to a different level, as this efficiency-boosting feature enables users to view multiple systems simultaneously across a remote multi-screen desktop, and control them intuitively with a single keyboard and mouse.

Matrox Maevex 6120 enterprise encoders deliver simultaneous dual 4K capture, encode, stream, and record—with options to stream and record even more channels in different configurations—all on a standard one GbE network. Maevex 6120 now also includes HLS, IPv6, fMP4, and MOV support for added multi-channel streaming and recording flexibility, as well as simplified and automated cloud-service connectivity with YouTube, Facebook Live, Wowza, LiveScale, and more.

Matrox Monarch EDGE encoders deliver resolutions up to 3840x2160p60 or quad 1920x1080p60 video while offering flexible 3G/12G-SDI and SMPTE ST 2110 25 GbE connectivity with multi-protocol streaming options. Shipping as of InfoComm 2019, the Monarch EDGE 4:2:0 8-bit version is ideal for webcasting and over-the-top (OTT) delivery, while the Monarch EDGE 4:2:2 10-bit model is tailor-made for remote production and remote integration (REMI) workflows.
