The Matrox and Magma collaboration facilitates rapid deployment of high-performance, high- density encoding and decoding mobile command centers.

MONTREAL — June 8, 2016 —

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Magma Thunderbolt® and PCIe® expansion systems have been tested for reliability and functionality with the complete range of Matrox PCIe-based video wall and AV-over- IP product lines. The new collaboration facilitates rapid deployment of high- performance, high-density encoding and decoding mobile command centers for OEMs and system integrators. At InfoComm 2016 (booth N2047), an integrated Matrox and Magma system can be seen in action decoding and displaying up to 60 streams, at resolutions all the way up to 8K, on four 4K monitors.

Matrox video wall solutions include Matrox Mura™ IPX 4K capture and IP encoder and decoder cards, Mura™ IPX 4K IP decode and display cards, Mura MPX video wall controller cards, and Matrox C- Series™ multi-display graphics cards. Matrox AV-over- IP solutions feature the Matrox Maevex™ 6100 Series encoder cards.

“Magma expansion systems help increase performance and efficiency in a wide range of challenging applications from defense and aerospace, high-performance and industrial computing and health and life sciences to media and entertainment and more,” said Julia Elbert, VP of engineering, Magma. “This association with Matrox adds a new dimension to let our integrators offer these customers the high- density video wall and AV-over- IP solutions that are becoming increasingly necessary for control room collaboration and information display of all sorts.”

“Magma’s small form factor options combined with a single Matrox card offers breakthrough, multi- channel encoding, decoding and display support and flexibility from the slimmest design platform possible,” said Fadhl Al-Bayaty, product manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Larger chassis in the Magma line also provide a scalability advantage that makes them extremely versatile.”


Magma and Matrox products are available worldwide through the companies’ respective networks of resellers.
