"Matrox is committed to delivering the best security solutions possible to its customers, and partnering with Milestone, the leading provider of open-platform IP video management software, is a very positive progression," says Alain Thiffault, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics. "With Milestone, we have the ability to add tremendous value by offering a complete security monitoring solution for any high-security installation environment."
The Matrox VDA-1164 brings hardware-accelerated IP video decoding capabilities to workstations running the Milestone XProtect Smart Client. By offloading the Central Processing Unit (CPU) of the video decoding burden, VDA-1164 enables optimal system responsiveness through its ability to simultaneously decode multiple streaming video formats from a variety of sources--at full frame rate. With VDA-1164 processing all the graphics and video data, the result is real-time decoding and display of up to 16 D1 streams of smooth, high-quality video.
"Matrox has been a valuable partner for Milestone for a long time, delivering high-end, multi-monitor graphics cards suitable for video security installations. With VDA-1164, Matrox has taken innovation a step further by providing a solution that offloads the CPU by decoding live video streams directly. Showing a large number of high-quality video streams can be done in a number of ways, but Matrox has taken a unique approach with the VDA-1164 by placing this highly CPU-demanding process on a card rather than leaving it on the server," reports Martin Kaufmann, MSP Program Manager at Milestone Systems. "The Matrox VDA-1164 thereby fulfills a growing need in the market for large-scale installations to show multiple high-quality video streams, and the XProtect integration will be a valuable offering for Milestone users."
