Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders are now compatible with NewTek solutions

Video production system by Newtek supported by Matrox Extio 3

Matrox® Video is has announced that Matrox Extio™ 3 IP KVM extenders are now compatible with NewTek’s 3Play® 3P1 IP replay solution and TriCaster® TC1 live multi-camera production system. This collaboration enables broadcast facilities to create KVM-over-IP infrastructures, empowering users to connect to and control NewTek’s systems, and thus facilitate live event productions from a remote 4K or multi-display station over LAN or private WAN.

“NewTek is pleased with both Matrox Extio’s smooth integration with our flagship production systems as well as its enablement of productivity-enhancing capabilities at the user level,” says Will Waters, head of product management, NewTek. “Broadcast facilities will benefit from Matrox’s reliable KVM extension technology that ensures uninterrupted on-air operations while offering pristine-quality performance at the operator station for the same-level-quality productions.”

NewTek 3Play 3P1 is a video solution for live game coverage, replay, slow motion, training, and analysis, with a set of real-time capabilities integrated into a single system, including native IP workflow integration and telestration. NewTek TriCaster TC1, meanwhile, is a production system designed for producers, publishers, and content creators, equipped with advanced live production capabilities, including native IP processing; switching, streaming, and recording in HD, 3G, and 4K Ultra HD; and more. In both NewTek-based workflows, Extio 3 IP KVM extenders enable users to connect seamlessly to all NewTek server-room-centralized systems over LAN or private WAN to create and deliver high-end replay, program, and live event productions.

Matrox Extio 3 IP KVM extenders deliver ultra-low-bitrate 4Kp60 4:4:4, dual 4Kp30 4:4:4, or quad 1080p60 4:4:4 video extension and switching support over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network. This KVM-over-IP technology enables users to access, share, and manage one or more centralized servers and/or workstations—located in a different room, building, campus, or city—all from a single 4K/multi-display station. Extio 3 also offers advanced security features.

“As broadcasters continue to incorporate a growing number of NewTek live production systems within their facilities, Matrox Extio 3 provides these environments with a simple, streamlined approach to KVM-over-IP infrastructures that facilitates the centralization of hardware assets while simultaneously providing operators with zero-compromise access to remote equipment,” commented Francesco Scartozzi, VP of sales and business development, Broadcast and Media Group at Matrox Video. “An optimized KVM network means operators can leverage and control the full capabilities of NewTek’s renowned production systems in real-time—and across high-resolution 4K and multi-HD operator stations—to readily create incredible and impactful content.”
