Matrox celebrates its 45th anniversary
On October 21, 2021, Matrox celebrates its 45th anniversary. Its two divisions, Matrox Imaging and Matrox Video have been operating for much longer than many other vendors in the professional AV/IT, broadcasting, industrial imaging, and machine vision markets. Although Matrox no longer releases graphics display chips, and its professional multi-screen graphics cards have switched to use NVIDIA and AMD chips, it still continues to introduce various innovative products.
Matrox launched IoT edge devices in 2021, released new software tools that leverage deep learning capabilities, launched the next-generation multi 4Kp60 encoder, continued to promote remote production, and supported the AV-over-IP realm. Since its establishment in 1976, Matrox has explored the consumer user market and then shifted its focus to the professional market, including digital signage, media and broadcasting, corporate communications, manufacturing, medical imaging, and factory automation.
Matrox Video’s focus in recent years has been to expand the standards-based uncompressed, lightly compressed, and intelligent compression product portfolio for content capture and processing, visualization, real-time encoding, recording, live streaming, IP KVM expansion and switching, decoding, and AV distribution via IP. Matrox Video’s broadcast OEM products will continue to form the basis of broadcast graphics systems, set-top-box systems, video servers, and other PC and cloud-based video solutions. Matrox Imaging will continue to innovate its products for deep learning training and inference, 3D imaging, and visual guidance for robotics applications to meet the growing demands of the automation market.
