Matrox Announces Video Decoding Accelerator Plug-in for Milestone XProtect Smart Client



Full integration between VDA-1164 and the high-end video surveillance client enables an advanced security surveillance platform for large-scale IP-based security networks

MONTREAL, Sept. 2 -- Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions, today announced the Matrox VDA-1164 Video Decoding Accelerator plug-in for full integration with the Milestone XProtect(TM) Smart Client. The new VDA plug-in is designed for security surveillance consoles running the high-end Milestone Desktop Client application to monitor large-scale IP-based security networks.

Matrox VDA-1164 accelerates video decoding under Milestone XProtect Smart Client by alleviating the host CPU and the host data bus of the decoding process to provide stutter-free viewing of full frame rate IP video streams. VDA supports simultaneous decoding of multiple video formats from a variety of IP cameras, encoders, and codecs, while displaying the various video streams -- in native resolution -- on up to four high-definition displays. Full support with Milestone XProtect Smart Client also offers integrators additional flexibility by allowing them to either scale down host CPU and memory requirements, or to view even more live camera streams by using both VDA and the host CPU for IP video decoding.

"The Matrox VDA plug-in for the full-featured Milestone XProtect Smart Client not only represents the first enablement for the Matrox VDA-1164, but a superior security surveillance platform for system operators," says Alain Thiffault, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics. "With the VDA handling the video decoding at the hardware level, operators are ensured the viewing of high-quality, real-time video streams so they can react accordingly within a highly responsive video surveillance client."

Matrox will be showcasing this technology at ASIS 2009 from September 21-24 in Anaheim, California, Booth 1177.
