Matrox Morphis 4VD Frame Grabber

Matrox Morphis 4VD Frame Grabber

Standard analog color/monochrome PCI-X frame grabber with four video decoders. Video input through BNC connectors.

PCIe® x1, PCI (-X2) or PCI-104 form factor


SKU: MIMOR/4VD Category:


Versatile design
Matrox Morphis is a family of cost-effective peripheral boards based on a truly versatile design. As a frame grabber board, the Matrox Morphis is ideal for video surveillance applications that require sequential capture from multiple standard sources with minimum latency. A modular design and simple standard connections provide additional flexibility and cost savings for video surveillance applications that require a scalable number of inputs. A real-time standard image compression and decompression accelerator for video archiving and/or transmission further qualifies Matrox Morphis for video surveillance applications. As an image compression and decompression board, Matrox Morphis is perfectly adapted for standard medical image archiving and transmission. Matrox Morphis Frame Grabber

Dual/quad video decoder architecture

An elaborate and finely tuned design featuring up to four video decoders working in tandem enables Matrox Morphis to rapidly switch between multiple video sources for sequential capture. The design also allows for the simultaneous capture from up to four independent standard video sources. A large dedicated buffer guarantees reliable image capture to the on-board compression accelerator1 or the host PC, including display. Moreover, video images can be formatted in real-time during capture. Formatting features include cropping (ROI), horizontal and/or vertical flipping and subsampling.

Real-time JPEG20001

Matrox Morphis integrates a hardware accelerator for JPEG2000 image compression and decompression. JPEG2000 is an industry standard from the Joint Photographic Experts Group for wavelet-based compression and decompression. This new standard was developed to provide a superior compression ratio without compromising quality, or superior quality at a given compression ratio when compared to conventional JPEG. An intricate algorithm makes JPEG2000 computationally intensive, so hardware acceleration is required for real-time performance at typical video rates. For video surveillance applications, the JPEG2000 hardware accelerator can handle up to two standard video streams, whether monochrome or color, in lossy or lossless mode. It can also handle high resolution monochrome formats with high dynamic range found in medical imaging applications. Matrox Morphis Frame Grabber
