Matrox Graphics and Milestone Systems Announce Enhanced Security Surveillance Solutions at IFSEC 2009

BIRMINGHAM, England, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- IFSEC 2009 -- Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions, today announced a partnership with Milestone Systems to provide enhanced surveillance solution performance to the security market. Matrox and Milestone will be launching this collaboration through an integration of the Milestone XProtect(TM) Smart Client with the Matrox VDA-1164 Video Decoding Accelerator for surveillance systems and operator stations in large-scale IP security networks.

"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."
