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.
Matrox’s award-winning lineup:
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.
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 will deliver exceptional 4Kp60 4:4:4, dual 4Kp30 4:4:4, and 2Kp60 4:4:4 performance over a standard one Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) network—at unprecedentedly low bitrates. Extio 3 will also demonstrate a brand new feature designed to drastically increase operational efficiency for users working on multiple source systems simultaneously. Extio 3 cards and appliances work with COTS network switches, illustrating a scalable and cost-effective KVM matrix over IP to securely route any system to any remote location on the network.
