Matrox Monarch Streaming and Recording

Matrox Monarch HDX integration has added live streaming and recording capabilities to MonitorIQ. It extends MonitorIQ’s ability to support HDMI sources, cloud –based recording and to monitor sources in remote locations where a client has a temporary event. Clients get centralized access on a single, web-based interface to monitor multiple streams from multiple locations. Monarch HDX is easy to deploy and easy to configure device and/or can be remotely configured.


Search by date, time, and channel as well as search for key words in the close caption, alert reports, as-run and traffic logs. Our Boolean search capability makes it easier to define the search by adding AND, OR, + in your search for combination of words. The results in a summary list are hyperlinked and can take you to the video content.


Alerts can customized based upon the channel, time of day, duration, and choice of error such as a missing closed caption, loss of video or audio, loudness, etc. You can now set up helpful custom profiles with specific preferences that are searchable by time, date and alarm profile. See a demo video of this feature.
