warrants that the Matrox hardware products (the “Matrox Product”) will be free from defects in materials and
workmanship under normal use for a period of two (2) years from the date of purchase by the original customer
(“Customer” or “You”) who provides adequate proof of purchase and payment (for example, a copy of your sales
receipt or purchase invoice). The warranties provided by Matrox in this Matrox limited warranty statement apply
only to Matrox Products that the Customer purchases for use, and not for resale. This warranty applies only to the
original Customer and is non-transferable. MATROX DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE OPERATION OF THE
MATROX PRODUCT WILL BE UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR-FREE, THAT DEFECTS IN THE MATROX
PRODUCT WILL BE CORRECTED, OR THAT THE MATROX PRODUCT WILL MEET THE CUSTOMER’S
REQUIREMENTS OR PERFORM WITH ANY HARDWARE OR SOFTWARE PROVIDED BY THIRD
PARTIES. Conditions and limitations of Matrox’s warranty are stated below.
2 Matrox’s limited warranty applies only to the Matrox Product entirely manufactured by or for Matrox. The limited
warranty does not apply to any non-Matrox hardware products or any software, even if packaged or sold with the
Matrox Product. Manufacturers, suppliers or publishers other than Matrox may provide their own warranties to the
Customer, but Matrox, insofar as permitted by law, provides their products “as is.” Software provided by Matrox is
not covered under this limited warranty (please refer to the licensing agreement accompanying the software for
details of the terms applicable to such).
3 Matrox’s limited warranty covers only those defects which arise as a result of normal use of the Matrox Product
and does not apply to any damage which arises from:
a improper or inadequate maintenance;
b incompatibilities due to the Customer’s hardware or software applications, including non-Matrox products,
with or in which the Matrox Product interfaces;
c Matrox Product of a special or custom-made nature;
d unauthorized modification or misuse, including physical damage to the Matrox Product caused by the
Customer or due to transportation of the product;
e improper installation, abuse, misapplication or negligence;
f failure to follow instructions relating to Matrox Product’s use;
g operation outside the Matrox Product’s environmental specifications;
h improper site preparation or maintenance;
i software;
j service performed by anyone who is not a representative of Matrox;
k other causes that do not relate to a Matrox Product defect;
l defects or damage suffered as a result of force majeure (including theft);
m defects or damage suffered as a result of normal wear and tear or otherwise due to the normal aging of the
Matrox Product, and/or
n stolen goods.
The warranty is voided by removal or alteration of identification labels on the Matrox Product or its parts.
4 In the event of a defect in a Matrox Product during the applicable warranty period, Matrox shall at its sole option,
either i) repair the defect using new or refurbished parts and return the repaired Matrox Product within a
reasonable delay; or ii) replace the Matrox Product with a Matrox Product that is new or which has been
manufactured from new or serviceable used parts and is at least functionally equivalent to the original Matrox
Product and send such replacement Matrox Product within a reasonable delay.

5 A replacement Matrox Product or part assumes the remaining warranty of the original Matrox Product.
When a Matrox Product or part is replaced, any replacement item becomes the Customer’s property and the
replaced item becomes Matrox’s property.
6 This warranty is valid in any country where Matrox Products are distributed by Matrox and/or its authorized
resellers, dealers or distributors.
7 This limited warranty gives the Customer specific legal rights. The Customer may also have other
rights which vary from state to state in the United States, from province to province in Canada, and
from country to country elsewhere in the world.
8 For Australian Consumers: The rights described in this warranty are in addition to the statutory rights to
which You may be entitled under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 and other applicable Australian
consumer protection laws and regulations. Our Matrox Products come with guarantees that cannot be
excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure
and compensation for any other reasonably foreseeable loss or damage. You are entitled to have the goods
repaired or replaced if the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major
failure. Goods presented for repair may be replaced by refurbished goods of the same type rather than being
repaired. Refurbished parts may be used to repair the goods.

purchases the Matrox Product, this limited warranty shall be deemed modified to be consistent with such
local law. Under such local law, certain limitations of this limited warranty may not apply to the consumer. If

warranties shall be limited in duration to the duration of this express warranty and to repair or replacement

Welcome to Matrox Monarch HD
Matrox Monarch HD is a small, easy-to-use video streaming and recording
appliance designed for professional video producers who need to simultaneously
stream a live event and record the master quality version for post-event editing.
By separating the task of recording from streaming in a single integrated unit,
Matrox Monarch HD ensures that the Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) are
focused on delivering quality video to your audience while you control the
quality of the archive.
From any HDMI input source such as a camera or switcher, Matrox Monarch HD
generates an H.264-encoded stream compliant with RTSP or RTMP protocols.
While encoding the video at bit rates suitable for live streaming, Matrox Monarch
HD simultaneously records a high-quality MP4 or MOV file to an SD card, a
USB drive, or a network-mapped drive. Matrox Monarch HD is remotely
controlled using any computer or mobile device with a web browser.

Streaming and recording
This section details the Monarch HD hardware components that are used for
streaming and recording.
Stream button
The Stream button’s functionality depends on the selected stream mode (RTSP or
RTMP). The Stream button is disabled when Monarch HD is set to Record-only
operating mode. For information on specifying your stream settings, see
“Specifying stream settings” on page 25.
Chapter 2, Matrox Monarch HD Hardware and Connections

• RTSP mode If Monarch HD is set to stream in RTSP mode, the unit
delivers stream data once a client connects to Monarch HD using the RTSP
streaming protocol, and therefore does not require you to press the Stream
button. When a client connects to Monarch HD, the Stream LED flashes.
• RTMP mode If Monarch HD is set to stream in RTMP mode, press the
Stream button to begin streaming your input source to the stream destination
specified in the stream settings. Pressing the Stream button starts the stream
for that device only. If your Monarch HD is set to control multiple Monarch

Command Center to start and stop streaming multiple Monarch HD devices
on the network at the same time (see Chapter 5, “Streaming and Recording).
When streaming, the Stream LED flashes. Press the Stream button again to
stop streaming.
¦ Note The Stream button activates when you release the button. If you want
to start/stop streaming and recording at the same time, press and hold the
Stream and Record buttons and then release them at the same time.
Record button
Press the Record button to start recording your input source to the media selected
in the record settings. The Record button is disabled when Monarch HD is set to
Stream-only operating mode. For information on specifying your record settings,
see “Specifying record settings” on page 30. Pressing the Record button starts the
recording for that device only. If your Monarch HD is set to control multiple
Monarch HD devices, use the control buttons on the Control page of the
Command Center to start and stop recording multiple Monarch HD devices on
the network at the same time (see Chapter 5, “Streaming and Recording). When
recording, the Record LED flashes. Press the Record button again to stop the
recording. Unless a specific record duration limit was set in the record settings,
Monarch HD limits the duration of each recording to five hours. The recording
will automatically stop when the duration limit is reached.
¦ Note The Record button activates when you release the button. If you want to
start/stop recording and streaming at the same time, press and hold the record and
Stream buttons and then release them at the same time.
USB 1 and 2
Use the USB ports to connect a USB 2.0 or 3.0 media device for recording the

• The performance of USB keys or “thumb drives” varies. Many of these
devices are optimized for “read” operations, while the Monarch HD requires
sustained “write” capabilities. For best results, especially at higher recording
data rates, powered USB drives are recommended. In some cases, SD cards
may be more suitable when small portable media is required.
• Monarch HD supports USB devices with FAT32 or NTFS file systems.
Media may need to be reformatted if not recognized by the Monarch.
• USB devices with password protection are not supported.
• It may take up to 30 seconds for Monarch HD to detect a newly connected
USB device (verified on the status page).
• For USB 3.0 hard drives without a dedicated power supply, Monarch HD
may not be able to sufficiently power more than one USB 3.0 drive at a time.
• When a recording is stopped, it may take up to ten seconds for Monarch HD
to finalize the file, during which the USB LED continues to flash. To avoid
corrupted video files, do not remove the USB device when its LED is
flashing.
SD card
Use the SD card slot for recording the source connected to the Monarch HD
HDMI input to an SD card. Monarch HD supports SD and SDHC cards with
FAT32 or NTFS file systems. To ensure that your SD card is fast enough to
record at higher bit rates, we recommend using an SD card with a Class 10 speed
rating. To select the SD card slot as the recording destination, see “Specifying
record settings” on page 30.
Remarks
• It may take up to 30 seconds for Monarch HD to detect a newly inserted SD
card.
• When a recording is stopped, it may take up to ten seconds for Monarch HD
to finalize the file, during which the SD card LED continues to flash. To
avoid corrupted video files, do not remove the SD card when its LED is
flashing.
Video/audio inputs and outputs
HDMI in
Provides an input for HD HDMI video (YUV or RGB) from a digital HDMI
device for streaming and recording. The HDMI input supports the following
video input formats:

Network Connection and Setup
This chapter explains how to
connect Monarch HD to a
network, and how to obtain the
Monarch HD IP address to
access the Monarch HD
Command Center. It also
explains how to update the
Monarch HD firmware.
16
Introduction
The network connection and setup instructions depend on whether you’ll be
connecting Monarch HD on a network with a DHCP server, such as through a
router, or a network without a DHCP server. If connecting to a network with a
DHCP server, Monarch HD must be set to DHCP IP mode. If your network does
not have a DHCP server, Monarch HD must be set to Static IP mode. By default,
Monarch HD is set to DHCP IP mode. Once connected to a network, the stream
and record settings are specified using the Monarch HD Command Center.
To access the Command Center, you must know the network IP address of the
Monarch HD device. When connecting to a network with a DHCP server, the
Monarch HD IP address is assigned by the DHCP server. In this case, you can use
the Matrox Monarch Finder utility to find the Monarch HD IP address. When
connecting to a network without a DHCP server, you must assign a static IP
address to Monarch HD. A default IP address is provided when in Static IP mode.
Network connection and IP address
This section details how to connect Monarch HD to a network with or without a
DHCP server, and describes how to acquire the Monarch HD IP address.
¦ Note If you switch the network connection while Monarch HD is powered and
the switch results in Monarch HD getting a new network IP address, you must
power cycle the device to apply the new IP address. To power cycle the device,
use the Reset button on the Monarch HD device (see “Using the Reset button” on
page 10).
Finding the Monarch HD’s current IP address
The fastest method for obtaining the Monarch HD’s current IP address is to
connect it to an HDMI monitor, and then power up the Monarch HD. When the
Monarch HD boots up, the device IP address will appear on the HDMI screen for
approximately 30 seconds before being replaced by the passthrough signal.
Connecting to a network with a DHCP server (DHCP IP
mode)
When connecting to a network with a DHCP server, such as through a router, the
Monarch HD IP address is assigned by the DHCP server. Although other
methods exist for obtaining the IP address of a device on a DHCP server, such as
from a DHCP-server client list, these instructions detail how to use the Matrox
Monarch Finder utility to find the IP address of your Monarch HD device.
1 Connect an Ethernet cable between Monarch HD’s LAN port and a network
port.
2 Make sure that power is supplied to Monarch HD (see “Powering Monarch
HD” on page 9).
Chapter 3, Network Connection and Setup
17
3 Monarch HD must be set to DHCP IP mode (default). If you need to switch
the device from Static IP mode to DHCP IP mode, you can either reset the
device to factory defaults (see “Reset to factory defaults” on page 11), or set
it to DHCP using the Command Center (see “Setting the IP mode” on
page 38).
4 On a computer that is on the same network subnet as your Monarch HD
device, download the Matrox Monarch Finder utility at
www.matrox.com/video/support/. The Matrox Monarch Finder is available
for both Mac OS and Windows systems.
5 Double-click the downloaded MatroxMonarchFinder file to open the finder
utility.
6 In the Matrox Monarch Finder window, click Scan. The finder will detect
all the Monarch HD devices that are connected to the same network subnet
as your computer, and display each device’s name and IP address. Take note
of the IP address(es).
¥ Tip If you have multiple Monarch HD devices, you may want to change
the name of each device for easier identification (see “Device name and
password” on page 22).
7 Open the Command Center (see “Accessing the Command Center” on
page 18).
Connecting to a network without a DHCP server (Static IP
mode)
When connecting to a network without a DHCP server, the network does not
assign an IP address to your Monarch HD device. In this case, you must assign a
static IP address to Monarch HD and you may be required to change your
computer’s network configuration to establish a connection between your
computer and Monarch HD.
1 Power Monarch HD (see “Powering Monarch HD” on page 9).
2 Monarch HD must be set to Static IP mode. By default, Monarch HD is set
to DHCP IP mode. You can switch Monarch HD to Static IP mode using the
Reset button (see “Switch to Static IP mode” on page 11).
3 Establish a connection between Monarch HD and your computer using one
of the following methods:
$
Connect an Ethernet cable from Monarch HD’s LAN port directly to your
computer’s Ethernet port.
$
Connect an Ethernet cable from Monarch HD’s LAN port to the same
network switch as your computer.
4 In order for your computer to communicate with Monarch HD, your
computer’s IP address must be in the same network range as your Monarch
HD’s IP address. If it isn’t, then you must change your computer’s IP address
Network connection and IP address
18
accordingly. By default, the Monarch HD static IP address is set to
169.254.1.11. If you’re using the default static IP address, you must change
your computer’s IP address and subnet mask to the following:
$
IP address
$
Subnet mask
169.254.1.10
255.255.0.0
¦ Note The default static IP address is designed primarily for the initial setup
of Monarch HD using a point-to-point connection (direct connection between
your computer and Monarch HD). The default IP address is not recommended
for a traditional network setting. If you wish to use Monarch HD in Static IP
mode over a network, after the initial setup we recommend that you change
the static IP address of the Monarch HD device to an address that is more
suitable to your network. You can change the static IP address in the Command
Center as specified in “Setting the IP mode” on page 38.
5 Open the Command Center (see “Accessing the Command Center” on
page 18).
Accessing the Command Center
The Monarch HD Command Center is where you specify the Monarch HD
settings and control the streaming and recording for a single Monarch HD device
or multiple devices on the same network. A Monarch HD network IP address is
required to access the Command Center (see “Network connection and IP
address” on page 16).
1 Power Monarch HD and connect it to an Ethernet network.
2 Open your computer’s web browser, type Monarch HD’s IP address in the
browser’s address field and then press ENTER.
The Command Center opens.
¦ Note If the IP address alone does not open the Command Center, try typing
the address followed by /Monarch (for example, 192.168.68.11/Monarch).
3 Use the Command Center to specify your Monarch HD settings and to
control streaming and recording (see Chapter 4, “Specifying Settings and
Using the Command Center).

HDMI input source, or the stereo audio source connected to Monarch HD’s
analog audio input (see “Video/audio inputs and outputs” on page 8). Monarch
HD uses the AAC audio format for streaming and recording. To monitor the
selected audio source, you can use either the HDMI or analog audio output.
¦ Note You can choose whether or not to include audio when streaming and
recording in the stream and record settings, respectively.
Analog audio sample rate
If using analog audio, select the desired sample rate for your analog audio input
source. If you are using an HDMI audio input source, this option is unavailable
(appears dimmed) because the sample rate is determined by the digital signal.
The default setting is 48 kHz, but you can choose any of the available options.
The analog audio input is converted to the selected sample rate before encoding.
Selecting the highest sample rate provides the best audio quality, but also
Chapter 4, Specifying Settings and Using the Command Center

increases the total bit rate required to maintain this quality for streaming and/or
recording.
Audio bit rate
Select the bit rate to which you want to stream the audio. This setting applies to
both the stream and record settings.
¦ Note (Analog audio only) To select the 32 kb/s bit rate, you must first select
22.05 kHz for the Analog audio sample rate.
Monarch HD operating modes
To ensure the highest possible streaming/recording video data rates based on
your needs, Monarch HD offers three operating modes:
• Stream only This mode disables the record functionality for your
Monarch HD. In this mode, the maximum average video data rate for
streaming is set to 20 000 kb/s.
• Record only This mode disables the stream functionality for your
Monarch HD. In this mode, the maximum average video data rate for
recording is set to 30 000 kb/s.
• Stream and record This mode allows you to simultaneously stream and
record with your Monarch HD device. In this mode, the maximum average
video data rate for streaming is 10 000 kb/s, and the combined maximum
average video data rate for streaming and recording is 30 000 kb/s. For
example, if the average video data rate for streaming is set to the maximum
value of 10 000 kb/s, the maximum average video data rate for recording is
20 000 kb/s.
Specifying the operating mode
You can set the Monarch HD operating mode in either the Stream Settings
page or Record Settings page.
¡ Important Changes made to the operating mode are automatically and

¦ Note If your input source is 1920×1080p at 50/59.94/60 fps and the streaming
resolution is set to a width greater than 1280 and/or height greater than 720, the
maximum supported streaming frame rate is 30 fps. If Full is selected from the
Frame rate list, the frame rate will automatically be set to Half of the input
source’s frame rate after clicking Apply.
Target video data rate
Enter the target average video data rate for your stream. When entering an
average data rate, the minimum and maximum data rates are automatically set
to 90% and 110% of the average data rate, respectively. The default minimum
and maximum values are suitable in most instances, however, you can change the
minimum and maximum values to suit your needs. The maximum average video
data rate for streaming depends on the selected operating mode (see “Monarch
HD operating modes” on page 25). Monarch HD uses a variable data rate when
encoding.
GOP size
Type the GOP size (distance between I frames) to which you want to encode

Main, or High. Typically, High profile provides the best image quality and is
suitable in most instances. However, depending on the decoder used when
viewing the stream, such as with mobiles devices, a Main or Baseline profile
may be required.
• Frame slices You can choose to slice each frame into 2, 4, or 8 sections
when encoding, or you can select 1 to encode the frame as a whole. Slicing
each frame when encoding the video for streaming may be useful when a
multi-slice decoder device is used to view the stream.
Chapter 4, Specifying Settings and Using the Command Center
29
• Deblocking filter Select this option to remove blockiness from the
encoded video when streaming. This option is especially useful when a low
video data rate is required.
Streaming options
Monarch HD provides options for using RTSP and RTMP streaming protocols
for use on Adobe Media Servers, Wowza Media Servers, software video players
such as QuickTime and VLC, or any of the popular Content Delivery Networks
(CDNs), such as Justin.tv and Ustream. In RTSP mode, Monarch HD acts as a
streaming server to which clients can connect via a media server, software video
player, or CDN that supports the RTSP streaming protocol. If you want to stream
to more than a handful of clients, we recommend using a dedicated media server
to send streams to clients. In RTMP mode, Monarch HD can send stream data to
a CDN or media server that supports the RTMP streaming protocol.
Using the RTSP streaming protocol
1 Select RTSP.
2 Enter a Stream name.
3 Enter the network Port through which the clients will connect.
4 A Stream URL is automatically generated based on your settings. Provide
this URL to a client to connect to your Monarch HD network via a Wowza
Media Server, software video player, or CDN that supports the RTSP
streaming protocol.
Remarks
• As soon as you apply RTSP stream settings, Monarch HD is ready to deliver
RTSP streams to clients, and will begin streaming data once a client connects
to Monarch HD using the RTSP streaming protocol. Monarch HD will
continue to do so until it is no longer in RTSP mode. There is no need to use
the Stream button located on the Monarch HD device or the Stream button in
the Command Center to start streaming.
• If you get choppy video when streaming to VLC media player, you must
enable the Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) in VLC. To do this, open the
VLC media player, go to the Advanced Preferences screen, choose Input /
Codecs > Demuxers > RTP/RTSP, and then select Use RTP over RTSP
(TCP).
Using the RTMP streaming protocol
1 Select RTMP.
2 Specify the destination Server URL and Stream name provided by your
CDN or server administrator. If your CDN provides a streaming XML file, or
when using Wowza Streaming Engine Manager, you can load the XML file
instead of entering the server URL and stream name. To do so, use the
Specifying stream settings
30
Choose File button to select the file, and then click Load. When loading an
XML file, just the destination information (server URL and stream name)
from the XML file will be loaded. If the XML file contains encoding
information, those settings will not be loaded. Click Clear to remove the
loaded XML file.
¡ Important If the stream name, username, or password is included in the
stream URL, do not enter the information in the respective text boxes.
3 If your Flash-based server or CDN uses the “ModuleRTMPAuthenticate”
method for RTMP authentication, a username and password is used for
authentication, however, username and password information is not included
as part of the stream URL or XML file. In this case, you must enter the
stream Username and Password in the text boxes provided.
4 Start streaming the Monarch HD input source to a CDN or media server as
detailed in Chapter 5, “Streaming and Recording.”
Specifying record settings
The Record Settings page in the Command Center lets you set the record
settings for the Monarch HD device. Monarch HD provides settings for recording
your input source for video on demand (VOD), high-quality editing, and
archiving/previewing purposes. Content can be recorded to MOV and MP4 file
formats on a FAT32 or NTFS file system. Because FAT32 limits the recording
file size to 4 GB, you must use an NTFS drive if your recorded file will be greater
than 4 GB. If controlling multiple devices, each device on the network records
based on its own record settings. For details on how to start/stop recording, see
Chapter 5, “Streaming and Recording.”
For approximate recording file sizes based on the average video data rate and
recording duration, and approximate maximum file durations given the average
video data rate and available disk space, see “Recording file sizes and duration”

¦ Note If your input source is 1920×1080p at 50/59.94/60 fps and the recording
resolution is set to a width greater than 1280 and/or height greater than 720, the
maximum supported recording frame rate is 30 fps. If Full is selected from the
Frame rate list, the frame rate will automatically be set to Half of the input
source’s frame rate after clicking Apply.
Target video data rate
Enter the target average video data rate for your recording. When entering an
average data rate, the minimum and maximum data rates are automatically set
to 90% and 110% of the average data rate, respectively. The default minimum
and maximum values are suitable in most instances, however, you can change the
minimum and maximum values to suit your needs. The maximum average video
data rate for recording depends on the selected operating mode (see “Monarch
HD operating modes” on page 25). Monarch HD uses a variable data rate when
encoding.
GOP structure
Type the GOP size (distance between I frames) and distance between P
frames to which you want to encode your input source for recording. Monarch
HD uses the IBP pattern when encoding for recording. For example, a GOP size
of 15 and a distance between P frames of 3 creates a GOP structure of
IBBPBBPBBPBBPBBI.
Include audio
Select Include audio to record the selected audio source along with the video.
Monarch HD uses the AAC audio format for recording. Clear this option if you
do not want to record audio. For more information on configuring audio settings,

limitations of each, see the sections “USB 1 and 2” on page 7, and “SD card” on
page 8.
Maximum recording duration
Enter a Maximum recording duration to set an overall time limit for your
recording session. The session will automatically end when this limit is reached,
or when the selected storage media is full (whichever occurs first). If you enter a
value of 0, the recording session will continue indefinitely, and will stop only
when your storage media is full.
The maximum file duration can include multiple files. For example, if you
specify a five-hour recording duration, but you have entered a file switching
duration (see “File switching duration” on page 34) of one hour, your overall
recording session will stop after five hours (assuming the storage media has
enough space), but Monarch HD will create five individual hour-long files.
File switching duration
Enter a File switching duration to separate your recording session into more
than one file at predetermined intervals. For example, if you enter a duration of
30 minutes, Monarch HD will close the current file and start recording to a new
file every 30 minutes.
The size of the created files (in approximated MBs) is displayed next to the
duration. The file size adjusts depending on the video data rates you set in the
encoding options (see “Target video data rate” on page 33).
Remarks
• The maximum file switching duration you can set is fourhours and fifty
minutes.
• If you enter a file switching duration of 0, Monarch HD will automatically
switch to a new file every four hours and fifty minutes. This is a precaution
that will avoid possible data loss that may occur from having files that are
too large.
• On FAT32 storage media, file switching will occur automatically after 4 GB.
This is a limitation of the FAT32 file system architecture. You can stop

base name, date, and time using the following naming convention:
Basename-[YYYY-MM-DD_HH-MM-SS].mov or .mp4.
¡ Important Blank spaces are not supported in the base name. Use underscores
in place of blank spaces. For example, enter Recording1_Stage1 instead of
Recording1 Stage1 as the base name for the file.
• USB or SD card When recording to a USB device or SD card, enter the
folder(s) on the recording device to which you want to record, if applicable,
followed by the base name. For example, if you want to name your file
Recording1, and save the file in a folder named Files that is contained within
another folder named Project on the root directory, enter
Project/Files/Recording1. If you want to save the file in the media device’s
root directory, enter Recording1.
• Network Use this option to record your input source to a shared folder on
the network. The method for entering the path and filename depends on the
operating system of the computer that contains the shared folder.
$
Windows When recording to a shared folder that is on a Windows
system on the network, you must enter the IP address of the location on
the network to which you want to record, followed by the shared folder
name, and then the base name for the file in the following format:
//IP address/shared folder name/basename
For example, if you want to name your file Recording1, and save the file
to a shared folder named Files that is located on a network computer with
an IP address of 123.456.7.890, enter //123.456.7.890/Files/Recording1.
¡ Important If the network destination has a firewall, it must be disabled
in order to record to the network location.
$

that is on a Mac OS X Mountain Lion or Lion system on the network, the
folder to which you want to save the file must be shared using the
Specifying record settings
36
Network File System (NFS) file-sharing protocol (see “Sharing a Mac OS
X Mountain Lion/Lion folder using NFS protocol” on page 37).
¡ Important Shared folders that use a file-sharing protocol other than
NFS are not supported with Monarch HD for recording.
When entering the path and filename, you must enter the IP address of the
location on the network to which you want to record, followed by the full
path to the shared folder from the root directory, and then the base name
for the file in the following format:
//IP address:/full path to shared folder/basename
For example, if you want to name your file Recording1 and save the file to
a shared folder named Files that is located on the Desktop under Matrox in
the Users root directory folder on a network computer with an IP address
of 123.456.7.890, enter the following:

Hiding Monarch HD from appearing as a UPnP
device on the network
The Monarch HD uses the Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) to
broadcast itself as a Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) device. This means that it
will appear in Windows Explorer (not visible in Mac OS) as if it were a a printer,
external hard drive, or similar UPnP device.
This feature is enabled by default, and makes it easier to find the Monarch HD on
a network if you do not know the device IP address. However, for security
reasons you may not want the Monarch HD to appear on your network for
anyone to see. If so, you can disable SSDP to hide the Monarch HD from
appearing as a UPnP device.
° To hide the Monarch HD:
1 Access the Monarch HD Command Center (see “Accessing the Command
Center” on page 18).
2 Choose Device > IP Setup.

Streaming and Recording
This chapter explains how to
control streaming and
recording for a single Monarch
HD device, and multiple
Monarch HD devices.
44
Introduction
Monarch HD lets you stream and record the input source connected to Monarch
HD’s HDMI input. If you have multiple Monarch HD devices connected to the
same network, you can also control the streaming and recording of multiple
devices from one device’s Command Center.
Remarks
• Unless a specific record duration limit was set in the record settings,
Monarch HD limits the duration of each recording to five hours. The
recording will automatically stop when the duration limit is reached.
• When a recording is stopped, it may take up to ten seconds for Monarch HD
to finalize the file. If recording to a USB device or SD card, the USB/SD
card LED continues to flash during the finalization process. To avoid
corrupted video files, do not remove the USB device or SD card when its
LED is flashing.
Control streaming and recording for a single
device
To control streaming and recording for a single Monarch HD device, you can use
the following two methods:
• Use the control buttons in the Command Center (see “Control buttons” on
page 47).
• Use the Stream and Record buttons on the Monarch HD device (see Chapter
2, “Matrox Monarch HD Hardware and Connections”).
Control streaming and recording for multiple
devices on the same network
Monarch HD allows you to start and stop the streaming and recording for up to
five devices on the network at the same time. Each device streams and records the
input source connected to its HDMI input based on its own stream and record
settings. To control multiple devices, you must use the control buttons (see
“Control buttons” on page 47) in the Command Center instead of the Stream and
Record buttons located on a Monarch HD device, which control the streaming
and recording for that device only.
You can control multiple Monarch HD devices from any of the devices on the
network. When enabling the control of multiple devices in a device’s Command
Center, that device becomes the primary device and the devices being controlled
become secondary devices. The control buttons in the Command Center of the
primary device can then be used to control the other devices on the network. You
can have more than one primary device on the network, with each primary device
Chapter 5, Streaming and Recording
45
controlling its secondary devices. For example, if you have three Monarch HD
devices on the network, you can set device one to control devices two and three,
and you can also set device two to control devices one and three. For details on
enabling multi-device control in a Monarch HD’s Command Center, and using
the control buttons to stream and record, see “Command Center Control page.
Command Center Control page
The Control page lets you control the streaming and recording for your Monarch
HD device. If you have other Monarch HD devices connected to the same
network, you can also control the streaming and recording for up to four other
devices at the same time. You can also use the Stream and Record buttons
directly on a Monarch HD device to stream and record, however, you will not be
able to control other devices on the network.
Accessing the Control page
To access the Control page, open the Monarch HD Command Center (see
“Accessing the Command Center” on page 18), and then click Control.
Command Center Control page
46
Disabling Stream and Record buttons on the
Monarch HD device
You can disable the physical Stream and Record buttons on the Monarch HD
device to prevent someone from inadvertently stopping a streaming or recording
session. This option only applies to the Monarch HD you are connected to, and
not other Monarch HD devices you may be controlling.
° To disable the Stream and Record buttons:
1 In the Command Center, click Control.
For more information, see “Accessing the Command Center” on page 18.
2 Select Disable Stream and Record buttons on this Monarch HD
device.
The Stream and Record buttons on the Monarch HD device are disabled.
¦ Note This button disable feature is off by default and, when required, would
also need to be performed after a factory reset.
Enabling multi-device control
This section details how to enable multi-device control of up to four other devices
in the Command Center (see “Control streaming and recording for multiple
devices on the same network” on page 44).
1 In the Command Center, click Control.
2 Select Control multiple Monarch HD devices.
3 For each Monarch HD device that you want to control, enter the network IP
address of the device. Click Scan after entering the IP address to verify if
the device can be found on the network. For information on acquiring a
Monarch HD’s IP address, see “Network connection and IP address” on
page 16.
4 Activate or deactivate the control for a Monarch HD device by selecting or
clearing the device’s Active box.
