Unprecedented stream density and low-bitrate, high-quality 4K H.264 encoding and
decoding on a single card let OEMs and AV system builders create advanced video
wall controllers

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced Matrox Mura™ IPX Series, a new line of 4K
capture and IP encode/decode boards that let OEMs and AV system builders deliver
advanced video wall controllers featuring high-quality, low-bitrate, multi-channel 4K
or HD encoding and decoding over standard IP. The first two Mura IPX Series cards
will be introduced at InfoComm 2015 (Orlando, June 17-19, booth 4053).

Designed to work with Mura MPX video wall capture and display boards and Matrox
C-Series™ multi-display graphics cards, Mura IPX packs 4K capture plus high-
density encode and decode functionality onto a single PCIe® card to simplify
integration and reduce installation costs. The MURA-IPX-I4DF 4K capture and IP
decode board provides four HDMI 1.4a inputs for direct high-resolution 4Kp30 or
2560x1600p60 capture plus H.264 decoding of 4Kp60 and up to three 4Kp30, sixteen
1080p30 or eight 1080p60 streams. The MURA-IPX-I4EF 4K capture and IP
encode/decode board adds H.264 level 5.2 encoding to stream and record video
wall content—including video wall sources, displays or regions-of-interest—
anywhere on the network.

“This new Mura IPX hardware, combined with the latest, easy-to-use APIs and
Matrox MuraControl™ video wall management software, gives system integrators
the essential building blocks to deploy advanced video wall controllers ideal for
control rooms, digital signage, AV presentation systems, and more,’ said David
Chiappini, vice president of research and development, Matrox Graphics. “OEMs can
take advantage of our development-grade libraries that provide deep control over
product customisation and come complete with sample code and dedicated OEM
development support.’

In an interactive demonstration in the Matrox booth 4053 at InfoComm 2015, Mura
IPX will capture baseband and IP sources as Mura MPX video wall processor cards
power a 2×2, 1920×1080 installation. Sources include Matrox Maevex decoders as
well as Full HD Maevex encoder and 1080p60 Panasonic IP camera streams. Mura
IPX will also encode the outputs in the same controller system, then, in a separate
appliance, decode them alongside content originating on a C-Series-powered video
wall. The decoded content will ultimately be displayed on a single C680-powered
UHD monitor, illustrating the ability to stream and monitor (or record) an entire
video wall anywhere on the network.
