Delivers 4K Capture and H.264 IP Encoding/Decoding

Matrox Mura™ IPX 4K capture and IP encoder & decoder PCI Express® cards provide OEMs and system builders with best-of-breed hardware and software to enhance their video walls and operator work stations with advanced video processing and networking capabilities.

Mura IPX boards are ideal for:

  • control rooms
  • digital signage
  • AV presentation
  • applications requiring high-density capture, encoding, streaming, recording, decoding, displaying, and control

Mura IPX has been engineered to offer world-class, high-density H.264 encoding and decoding capabilities. Specifically, Mura IPX aims at the primary applications of high-density H.264 codec processes including:

Resolution encoding and decoding including the compression, decompression, streaming, and recording of a single 8K* stream or multiple 4K, Full HD, or SD streams.

Quality encoding and decoding through the encoding support of desktop-grade, high-frequency content. Not requiring color space compression, Mura IPX allows for perfect desktop sharing and recording applications on content as detailed as only one pixel thick.

Number of streams encoding and decoding for numerous applications ranging from decode and display of a high number of streaming IP sources, to the capture and streaming of multiple independent streams of video content at multiple bitrates, resolutions, and quality levels, for further sharing or recording as a unified steam.

The Matrox Mura™ IPX 4K capture and IP encoder & decoder board is recommended in the Seneca VWC-PLUS video wall controller.
