New card gives developers of medical imaging, surveillance and training simulation systems the widest variety of input connections, video capture of multiple SD to UHD streams plus optional H.264 encoding — all from a single PCIe slot
MONTREAL — Jan. 14, 2016 — Matrox® Imaging today announced Matrox Clarity UHD, a single-slot PCIe® frame grabber that provides Mini DisplayPort®, HD-BNC, HDMI® and custom analog DVI connectivity for SD, HD and UHD video sources. Matrox Clarity UHD can simultaneously acquire multiple video streams such as four HD (1080p60) or two UHD (4K) streams. Optional encoding using H.264 baseline to high 4:4:4 predictive profiles enables optimal video storage and distribution.
Ideal for medical imaging, surveillance and training simulation systems, Matrox Clarity UHD builds on the success of the popular Matrox Vio and Matrox Orion HD lines of frame grabbers with the addition of UHD support and optional H.264 encoding in hardware.
“With Matrox Clarity UHD, program managers and developers now have a single video capture solution that addresses the emergence of UHD video while still providing support for legacy HD and SD formats,” said Michael Chee, product manager, Matrox Imaging. “Support for the multiple inputs can eliminate the need for end users to redo system video connections and multi-stream capture on a single-slot PCIe card can reduce system cost and footprint.”
Early access Matrox Clarity UHD units and Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) 10 driver for Windows® will be available in Q2 2016.
