“The Monarch HDX is well featured, easy to use, and reasonably priced, and produced very good quality output. Those seeking a dual-channel hardware encoder should definitely include the product of their short list. The Matrox Monarch HDX is a bigger, better version of the Matrox Monarch HD. Both units are dual-codec encoders. In the case of the Monarch HD, this means you can stream one feed live, and record another, both solely from HDMI input.
