Matrox has announced the Matrox X.mio5 Q25, a SMPTE ST 2110 network interface controller (NIC) card with multi-channel video I/O supporting HD to 4K, with zero CPU utilization. 

Equipped with 10GbE and 25Gbe interfaces, X.mio5 Q25 features on-board multi-channel HDR conversions along with motion adaptive de-interlacing, pristine scaling, and powerful compositing engines for high-density 4K video processing. 

The game-changing card enables original equipment manufacturers to build and deploy advanced IP-based broadcast graphics systems, channel-in-a-box platforms, and capture/playout video servers designed for today’s HD and emerging 4K/UHD workflows. In addition to being in the Matrox booth (booth SL4524), X.mio5 Q25 will be instrumental at the AIMS IP Showcase (booth C12634), feeding uncompressed 4Kp60 signals via SMPTE ST 2110 throughout the booth.

Architected as a video-aware COTS SMPTE ST 2110 NIC card, X.mio5 Q25 delivers 24/7 reliability and interoperability required of broadcast equipment, while offering the flexibility and scalability expected of IP infrastructures including standard network stack functionality, according to Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox Video. With support for four SFP28 transceivers, X.mio5 Q25 allows for PC-based platforms to receive and transmit four 4K/UHDp60, 16 1080p60, 32 HD, or any equivalent combination of flows over 25GbE. 

The X.mio25 Q25 also includes high-quality on-board video processing to offload CPU and GPU resources. It’s further supported by the Matrox DSX SDK, ensuring rapid application development and system deployment. 

The Matrox X.mio5 Q25 card will be available in quarter two of 2018. Developers may obtain more information by e-mailing
