Matrox Monarch: Specs and Details from NAB 2013

I’ve been yelling a lot about the Matrox Monarch since it popped up at IBC last fall: a stand-alone H.264 streaming/capture device that has no competition, but does have tons of uses in production. It was officially unveiled this past Monday at the NAB 2013 show in Las Vegas. Conveniently, I was also in Las

Want Video From The PlayStation 4? Ask Sony

All the #PS4 streaming and sharing: that’s on the hardware. Devs don’t have to do anything special to their game. #GDC — Greg Miller (@GameOverGreggy) March 27, 2013   On the gaming side, the above isn’t big news, beyond the obvious advantage that we won’t have 600 different streaming/sharing implementations done by 600 different devs.

Did Call of Duty’s YouTube Streaming Break Already?

As probably all gamers know, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 releases on 11/13/2012. Here in America, that’s tomorrow; elsewhere in the world, that’s today. Since I’m interesting in their crazy new built-in streaming features, I went looking around YouTube for some streams from people who already got the game. Well, I found some. None

Matrox Monarch Connections: There Are Only Two

Matrox has a Connections view of the Monarch on their Press site, that wasn’t available back when it was announced at IBC. I’ve previously speculated on what connections it would have; if this mockup is accurate, looks like I’m going to be disappointed. Now clearly this is a render and not a photo of the

YouTube Powering Call of Duty Illegal Live Streaming

Published on November 8, 2012, by in Gaming.

Halo 4 Is For eSports…Except When It’s Not

Forbes has an interesting little interview with 343’s Kevin Franklin, talking about Halo 4’s potential for the eSports world. Honestly, there’s very little of substance in this “exclusive interview” – basically, Halo 4 has some multiplayer modes, they’d be good for eSports, and MLG Dallas will be featuring Halo 4. Of course, what isn’t mentioned is

Saw this Tweet from Twitch.tv a few weeks ago: For those picking up Dead or Alive 5 tonight, please do not broadcast until 6AM PDT, September 25, per Tecmo’s request. Thank you! — Twitch (@TwitchTV) September 24, 2012 Now I’m not active in the Twitch community, so this is probably more surprising to me than

Xbox 720 Could Support Built-In Streaming and Capture

There’s been a few fun reports on Microsoft patents, like the one where they describe a method for silencing a mobile device by whacking it off. Or this one, where they project a wilderness throughout your entire living room (yeah, great, as if my cats aren’t psychotic enough). But this supposed Xbox 720 one is
