Matrox Morphis Family



Matrox Morphis is a cost-effective peripheral board that features a dual or quad decoder design for fast camera switching or simultaneous acquisition of up to four live video streams, and includes real-time JPEG2000 compression/decompression.

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.
