Simultaneous Encode/Decode Appliance for Remote Production (REMI)
Matrox® MonarchTM EDGE S1
Affordably enhance remote production (REMI) workflows with Monarch EDGE S1. A simultaneous encode/decode appliance, Monarch EDGE S1 allows users to provide return feeds to multi-camera production crews in the field.
Monarch EDGE S1 offers one 3G-SDI input, allowing low latency return feeds coming from studio to be encoded for secure transport over private or public internet connections.
At remote sites, Monarch EDGE S1 can decode one HD feed and output via a genlockable 3G-SDI connection for distribution of the program feed. As both encode and decode operations can occur simultaneously, a single camera contributor in the field can use this device to both send a high-quality feed to studio and receive the program feed being produced by the studio.
Enhanced productions, small footprint
Equipped with a 3G-SDI input and output, the versatile Monarch EDGE S1 encode/decode appliance can encode a high-quality, studio-produced program feed for transport over private or public internet connections to Monarch EDGE S1-equipped sites to decode and view the return feed.
Monarch EDGE S1 provides some of the lowest latencies on the market, with glass-to-glass latency as low as 100 ms, which is essential in maintaining constant and continuous communications between studio and remote staff.
The full-featured appliance includes MPEG-2 TS, SRT, and RTSP streaming protocol support for secure transmission across various networks, along with tally and talkback channels to facilitate communication between camera operators and in-studio personnel.
Staying connected for REMI and multi-site productions
Broadcasters deploying Monarch EDGE E4 quad-HD encoder and Monarch EDGE D4 quad-HD decoder appliances for multi-camera REMI workflows can integrate Monarch EDGE S1-based return feeds allowing camera operators and in-studio personnel to communicate accordingly during a live event and help deliver the best production possible.
Monarch EDGE S1 is also well-suited for single-and multi-site remote contribution workflows. Remote contributors located across various geographical regions can simultaneously send a high-quality camera feed while receiving a return feed, resulting in a collaborative, in-studio-type communication dialog and experience between all participants.
