Montreal — 1 November 2018 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. is proud to announce that Meiko Electronics Co., Ltd. has selected Matrox Mura-brand video wall controller boards, Matrox Maevex-brand multi-channel encoders, and Matrox Extio-brand high-performance IP KVM extenders as core components of Meiko’s advanced control room and collaboration suite embodied in the new Meiko MVC-IP Series.
A leading manufacturer of video wall systems in Japan, Meiko will demonstrate their full suite at Inter BEE 2018 (booth#: 2615) at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
Meiko demonstration highlights at the show include:
- 16K pixel-perfect, ultra-high definition display systems using Mura IPX output boards
- Security and surveillance video wall systems combining Mura IPX capture and IP encode/decode boards with Meiko’s advanced thumbnail display software
- Knowledge worker control room and collaboration systems combining Extio 3 high-performance IP KVM extenders with Meiko’s control software
- Digital signage distribution systems leveraging Maevex encoders and Mura IPX multiviewers
“Meiko’s steady augmentation of their advanced video wall platforms to support all manner of IP sources, and leveraging IP for new applications of recording, collaboration, live streaming, and multi-user visualization, is consistent with Matrox’s vision of removing all source, destination, and distance barriers for converged applications of AV and IT,” says Samuel Recine, director of sales – Americas and Asia Pacific at Matrox Graphics Inc. “Meiko’s leadership in control rooms and distributed environments such as digital signage is an elegant testament to the tremendous scalability of Matrox’s delicately balanced products that offer the pinnacle of performance and quality at the lowest bitrates.”
Mr. Goto, sales director of Meiko says, “The demand to switch to IP video signals is expanding. We think embedded systems using Matrox IP-based products like Mura IPX are matched to this demand. Mura IPX video wall cards are particularly effective for policing, road and river monitoring, stadiums, and all kinds of surveillance applications using multiple signals from IP cameras.” Mr. Goto continues, “Mura IPX can drive large monitors, decoding both streams from IP cameras and baseband signals from image processing PCs and other sources. At the same time, Mura IPX can encode for remote use, allowing information to be shared across multiple locations. Compared with conventional systems using multiple decoders, Mura IPX-based solutions deliver on ‘simple system construction,’ ‘cost reduction,’ and ‘short lead time.’ The combination of Matrox’s IPX and Meiko’s software technologies will prove to be the best system, offering benefits to every user and system integrator.”
When: Wednesday November 14th through Friday November 16th, 2018

About Meiko Electronics Co,. Ltd.
In 1981, Meiko’s imaging division developed the world’s first multivision processor, which has been widely used both in Japan and elsewhere. In Japan, where natural disasters are frequent, government agencies and private enterprises install a variety of facilities for disaster management. Meiko’s imaging equipment has been adopted not only by fire departments and disaster prevention centers nationwide, but also in key infrastructure facilities for monitoring rivers and roads. Recently the rise of terrorism and crime is becoming a big international problem. In response, Meiko’s products have started to be used in monitoring systems for events held in stadiums and public venues. Going forward, Meiko will continue to contribute to the creation of a safe and secure society, concentrating on the development of new products and solutions that integrate with surveillance cameras and other devices, aimed at the prevention of terrorism and crime.
