Ensemble Video supports Matrox Monarch LCS

Lecture capture application running on desktop and tablet

Ensemble Video, a Matrox technology partner, now supports Matrox’s Monarch LCS lecture capture appliance on its online video management and distribution platform.

The Monarch LCS H.264 encoding appliance serves as a capture-and-encode node, providing video to the Ensemble system.
 
Ensemble offers video capture, management, and publishing. It offers CMS/LMS integrations, automated lecture capture, simple screen capture and analytics.

Monarch LCS generates H.264-encoded video streams at bitrates up to 30 Mbps and has scaling, deinterlacing, and noise-reduction engines that send images to the internal encoders for simultaneous streaming and recording. When streaming, the encoders use either RTMP or RTSP protocols to deliver live streams to local or cloud-based media servers. When recording, the encoders write MP4 or MOV files to local USB drives, SD cards, or network-mapped drives for post-event editing or archiving.  

The Monarch LCS allows simultaneous dual-input, which is suitable for use in lecture halls, corporate presentations and places where a dual camera set-up or a camera and computer source need to be encoded simultaneously.

As standalone devices, Monarch appliances can be deployed across a building, a campus, or a wider network.
