China Digital Video Builds New 4K Graphics Production Systems on Matrox X.mio3 SDI Video Cards

Multi-channel, low-profile Matrox I/O hardware enables reliable 4K (UHD) broadcast with realtime graphics overlay

MONTREAL — March 25, 2015 — Matrox Video today announced that video equipment manufacturer China Digital Video (Beijing) Limited (CDV) has chosen the X.mio3 SDI video card as the heart of its new Mariana5D-4K online graphics system and its A10-4K character generator.

“Matrox hardware and the powerful Matrox software tools provide a very solid foundation for our 4K system development and our systems have already proven themselves in the field,” said Baodong Liu, CDV CEO. “Our A10-4K character generator was instrumental in Jiangsu TV’s top-rated 4K broadcast of their 2015 New Year’s concert.”

“CDV and the Matrox OEM team have a long-standing relationship that has resulted in Matrox products being used in television production facilities throughout China,” said Alberto Cieri, Matrox senior director of sales and marketing. “The new Mariana5D-4K and A10-4K are a natural evolution of the technology that will give broadcasters an easy and cost-effective migration path from HD to 4K.”

Matrox X.mio3 LP is a low-profile, half-length PCIe card that offers up to eight reconfigurable I/Os, from SD to 4K. Multi-channel hardware processing accelerates compute-intensive operations including motion-adaptive de-interlacing, up/down/cross scaling and mixing/compositing for all resolutions. Along with comprehensive Matrox DSX SDKs for Windows® or Linux® and unlimited Matrox applications engineering support, the card provides the I/O flexibility OEMs need to get quickly to market with small-footprint channel-in-a-box systems, video servers, broadcast graphics systems, encoders, transcoders, multiviewers, switchers and other digital media equipment.

The Matrox DSX SDKs offer a common API across all Matrox DSX Developer Products providing a full set of powerful tools including versatile file reading/writing, memory management, streaming synchronization, and a large selection of software codecs and effects. A prototyping tool provides a graphical representation of all hardware components so developers can simulate and test their use cases within minutes, before writing a single line of code.

China Digital Video products will be demonstrated at CCBN (Beijing, March 26 – 28) in booth 3302.

Matrox products will be demonstrated at the 2015 NAB Show (Las Vegas, April 13–16) in booth SL5817. Developers may obtain more information about the Matrox DSX Developer Products by e-mailing
