acing fans c an't get
enough of their sport, and
MotorSportsBroadcasting.com
is happy to give them the action
they crave in live webcasts and ondemand viewing.
High-quality HD production at
minimal cost is the responsibility
of President of Operations Sam
Provencher. Challenges abound.
Streaming from a different
location each weekend means
that equipment has to be entirely
mobile. Internet connectivity in the
rural areas where most racetracks
are located can be problematic.
Quick, easy setup is a necessity.
And reliability is paramount.
After extensive research into
online video delivery platforms and
H.264 encoders, Provencher settled
on StreamVu as his service provider
and the Matrox Monarch HD
streaming and recording appliance
they recommended.
StreamVu is an online video
delivery platform specialising in live
and on-demand content. Featuring
an easy-to-use interface with added
broadcast tools, StreamVu helps
content creators affordably reach as
many viewers as they want.
Matrox Monarch HD is a small,
easy-to-use H.264 encoder designed
for professional video producers
who need to simultaneously stream
a live event and record a masteringquality version for post-event editing.
It provides these two independent
modes in an integrated unit. From
any HDMI input source, such as a
camera or switcher, Monarch HD
generates an H.264-encoded stream
compliant with RTSP or RTMP
protocol. While encoding the video
at bitrates suitable for live streaming,
Monarch HD simultaneously
records a high-quality MP4 or MOV
file to an SD card, USB drive, or
network-mapped drive.
Monarch HD has an intuitive
interface, the Command Center,
that lets users

quickly set up, control, and output
streams using any computer or
mobile device with a web browser.
"The Matrox Monarch is
ideal for webcasters like
MotorSportsBroadcast ing.com
who need to stream and/or locally
capture their productions," says
StreamVu President Brian Arrowood.
"Its live encoding is on par with the
best Flash encoders we support,
but its local recording, at a bitrate
separate from the live stream, is its
key differentiator. While StreamVu
provides cloud archiving for our
customers, it's limited to the
bitrate that they are streaming.
Nothing beats the reliability and
quality of a local recording. All in
all, Monarch HD is an excellent and
well-built encoder filling a need for
those seeking
a quality

encoder
with
a
local
capture capability."
Provencher talks about his
production process, "Streaming is
not part of our workflow; it is our
workflow. As a mobile production
service, we have to be able to
arrive onsite and begin streaming
live in 10 minutes or less. We work
with various switchers, and they
all feed the Monarch HD encoder.
This insures that we are capturing
the broadcast-ready feed for local
recording as well as sending out a
high quality live stream.
"When it comes to the challenge
of internet access, we have used
satellite connections, aircards, and
broadband services when available.
The Monarch HD encoder is so
versatile that we can stream at our
ideal of 2.8Mbps for high quality or,
when internet speed is lacking, at
700Kbps. It's dynamic enough to
handle the full range with exceptional
reliability and quality.
"The live video stream from the
Monarch HD is as good as anything
we have seen on the market. We
have actually received feedback
from our returning viewers on the
increase in video quality since
we began using it. The recorded
video is top-notch, too. Being able
to record at such a high level then
pull that file instantly is an amazing
asset for our production.
"Getting started on this project,

is an
"...Monarch HDwellexcellent and
built encoder filling
a need for those
seeking a quality
encoder with a local
capture capability

"

Brian Arrowood, StreamVu President

our driving concern was how much
we could get out of our budget. By
finding the Monarch HD, we were
actually able to come in under budget
and meet all of our production goals.
Monarch HD's price point made it an
easy decision. It is one of our smallest
pieces of production equipment, yet
it's the most valuable."
Provencher sums up his
experience: "Matrox and StreamVu
work seamlessly together. The quality
and ease of access is greater than
any other platform we have used
in the past. There is a major level
of comfort and reliability in both
technologies that allows us to
focus our energy on other aspects
of the production. Best of all, we
know we are going to have 24/7 live
voice support if anything out of the
ordinary happens. That's a musthave in our industry."
