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.

Just caught wind (via FreshDV) of a free little program with big features: namely, it can encode to ProRes on Windows. Sure, you could use ffmpeg standalone or with a frameserver, but that’s a lot of hoops to jump through. What we really need is something simple enough that any editor can handle it. Meet

Amazon’s Elastic Transcoder: Clearing the Cloud Confusion

QuickTime is Not a Codec: The Basics of Media Files

If one more person answers “What codec is it?” with “Quicktime,” I’m going to lose my shit. QuickTime is not a codec. QuickTime has never been a codec. Seriously guys, it’s 2012.

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.

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.

The Matrox Monarch and a User Generated Revolution

The Matrox Monarch is the product that every video pro needs, but doesn’t exist – that is, until Q1 2013, when Matrox will start selling it to us. But I believe that it could be much more. Though there’s not a ton of info yet – in fact, there’s nothing but the press release – here’s the
