ESP xMedia boosts its cloud workflows with Matrox Monarch Edge
ESP xMedia and Matrox® present a cloud-based, multi-camera platform for live event and sports production workflows. Leveraging the Matrox Monarch EDGE 4K/multi-HD encoder, live event producers can now send up to four low-latency Full HD camera feeds to ESP xMedia’s global cloud video platform, ESPxCloud (www.espx.cloud), and allow viewers to select from and switch between multiple broadcast-grade camera views.
Matrox Monarch EDGE enables live event producers to create original user-selectable, multi-camera productions. The H.264 encoder captures and delivers the on-site program feed and multiple alternative viewing angles, each at Full HD resolution, to the ESPxCloud video platform. ESPxCloud’s streaming technology then showcases the main window video content at high resolution, with the other secondary viewport windows set at lower resolutions, and switches when viewers change viewports. When required, multiple Monarch EDGE appliances can also be combined to support more primary, secondary, or even tertiary camera views.
In addition, coupled with Monarch EDGE’s multi-channel synchronization support, ESPxCloud allows viewers to switch between viewports synchronously.
