Hardware-accelerated IP video technology will provide multi-display, high-resolution decoding of multiple IP streams for security monitoring
"Currently, IP security monitoring systems rely on software applications running on the system CPU to stream video, resulting in bottlenecks and dropped frames," stated Alain Thiffault, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics. "Our new IP video technology offloads the host computer and decodes multiple IP streams at the hardware level -- with a true 1:1 pixel ratio, from camera to screen. This allows operators to see everything and react quickly to any situation that may arise."
Matrox Graphics has a long history of pioneering graphics solutions for control rooms, traffic management, and large scale visualization across display walls. This proven IP video decoding technology, already available for Matrox Display Wall products, will be integrated into a number of Matrox graphics solutions over the coming years.
"We are confident in our strategy because of our proven success in designing display controller boards for the security and surveillance industries," said Thiffault. "This decoding technology enhances our offerings and provides clear advantages for our customers."
Partners are a core part of the Security Solutions strategy -- Matrox offers an SDK so that security software vendors can easily integrate Matrox decoding technology into their own solutions. Matrox has also designed the platform to allow for rapid integration to support new codecs and cameras, and will continue this approach as the company moves forward with development of products based upon this technology.
Matrox is demonstrating IP video decoding from Sept. 15-17th at ASIS International 2008, in Atlanta, GA, Booth #4705.
