The Matrox X.mio5 video board is the next generation IP card supporting SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/40 protocols. It is equipped with quad 25GbE SFPs delivering an effective, fully redundant bandwidth of 50GbE, capable of providing four UHD inputs and outputs.


Key Features

  • Native SMPTE ST 2110 support with no CPU usage.

  • 4x UHDp60/50 inputs and outputs over 25GbE.

  • ST 2110-21 packet pacing in hardware for narrow senders (Type N).

  • Wide asynchronous receivers (Type A).

  • 32x HD inputs and outputs over 25GbE.

  • 256 audio flows from one to 64 tracks.

  • Multi-channel HDR conversion.

  • On-board de-interlacing, scaling and compositing.

  • Integrated hardware PTP for ST 2059-2.

  • Built in NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 support.

General Notes

  • Please be aware that a xMIO5 uses a 16xPCI slot. It can't use the same slot as a xMio3.

  • To make sure the PTP is stable, all Power Management options in Windows and BIOS need to be disabled. ("runtime power management" disabled in BIOS settings)

  • xMIO5 boards require 2 IP addresses. This is mandatory.
