Matrox new products and new features for the Matrox DSX developer product line

Matrox VITE : 21 December, 2006  (New Product)
Matrox Video Products Group today announced the immediate availability of new hardware components and significant new software features for the Matrox DSX family of HD and SD video and audio components. The Matrox DSX platforms exploit Matrox's 'Power of X' and 'Flex' technologies to enable OEMs and developers to leverage scalable CPU and GPU power to create a wide variety of cost-effective products and applications including NLE systems, capture/playout servers, clip and still stores, graphics/production servers, automation and master control units, multi-layer compositors, and CATV barker channels.
The Matrox DSX product line combines codec and effects technologies and a full range of professional hardware components with a comprehensive Windows XP-based SDK. The Matrox DSX platforms will be demonstrated at IBC 2006 on the Matrox stand 7.128.

New products include Matrox and Matrox DSX LE/CG. Matrox is a small PCI/PCI-x card that unlocks the Matrox DSX SDK functionality in systems that do not contain Matrox I/O hardware. It is ideal for software-based NLEs, compositing systems and transcoding stations in networked environments. Matrox DSX LE/CG features an advanced on-board compositor/scaler and an independent preview channel for video or key output. It is ideal for character generators, clip/still stores, NLEs, and studio-in-a-box applications.

The 4.0 release of the Matrox DSX SDK introduces new features for the Matrox DSX platforms including: field upgradeability for X.mio, advanced Flex File Reader/Writer modules to support additional file formats, HDV 720p and 1080i support, and improved software 2D DVEs.

'With over 200 OEMs worldwide in four key product categories - NLE, video server, CG, and clip/still store - Matrox is clearly the leading supplier of digital video solutions to developers,' said Alberto Cieri, Matrox sales and marketing director. 'The new products and features that we are announcing at IBC 2006 open up new possibilities for our current customers and new markets for the Matrox DSX technology.'
