Matrox Monarch HDX is a compact, easy-to-use, dual-channel H.264 encoding appliance. Designed for complete workflow flexibility, it features 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs with frame synchronization to compensate for unstable sources. Matrox Monarch HDX generates H. 264-encoded video streams at bit rates from 200 Kbps to 30 Mbps. It uses RTMP or RTSP protocol for streaming to deliver the stream to local or cloud media servers. Powerful scaling, deinterlacing and noise reduction engines ensure only the most pristine images are sent to the encoders.
Varun Talwar, the Product Manager of Google, explained regarding Live streaming,
“We are streaming based on HTTP, so it allows us to do a few things — things like adaptive bitrate in the player and the ability to go back in the stream. Users come in, they don’t miss the action. You can scrub back. We automatically record or give you the option to record, as a video. And a YouTube Live event is just like another YouTube video so you can share it, embed it, you can spread it as if it was a YouTube video.”
“The other thing which was a big focus, and I think still is a focus, is to make the product simple. I think live streaming is pretty complicated if you take all the pieces from acquisition to playback and analytics. One of the things we wanted to do — and I think we’re still not there, but we’ve come a long way — is to get it very simple for people to go live. It shouldn’t look like a whole lot of controls.”
