 The What: Matrox Mura IPX is 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-bit-rate, multi-channel 4K or HD encoding and decoding over standard IP.

The What Else: Designed to work with Mura MPX video wall capture and display boards or Matrox C-Series multi-display graphics cards, Mura IPX features 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 inputs for direct high-resolution 4Kp60 or 2560x1600p60 capture plus H.264 decoding of up to two 4Kp60, four 4Kp30, eight 1080p60 or sixteen 1080p30 streams. The MURA-IPX-I4EF 4K capture and IP encode/decode board adds H.264 level 5.2 encoding to stream and record content, including video wall sources, displays, or regions of interest, anywhere on the network.

The Bottom Line: Mura IPX hardware, combined with easy-to-use APIs and Matrox MuraControl video wall management software, gives system integrators the essential building blocks to deploy advanced video wall controllers for control rooms, digital signage, AV presentation systems, and more. OEMs can take advantage of development-grade libraries that provide deep control over product customization and come complete with sample code and dedicated OEM development support.
