Matrox Celebrates 45 Years of Technology Innovation

Marking more than four decades of continued innovation through constant reinvention and an enduring commitment to technical excellence

This year, Matrox® proudly celebrates its 45th anniversary. Innovation has been central to the brand’s identity since its inception, and continual evolution has propelled Matrox through decades of technological and industry change.

Its two divisions—Matrox Imaging and Matrox Video—enjoy a longevity that far outpaces many other major players in the pro AV/IT, broadcast, industrial imaging, and machine vision markets.

Continued innovative product releases evince Matrox’s sustained market leadership; in 2021 alone, the company launched a highly anticipated IoT edge device, released new software tools that leverage deep learning capabilities, unveiled next-generation multi-4Kp60 encoders, and continues to advance work in remote production and champion open standards in the AV-over-IP realm.

Innovative Products with Transformative Powers 
Since its founding in 1976, Matrox has borne witness to, and helped propel, major technological shifts. Matrox explored the end-user consumer market before shifting its corporate focus to specialized professional markets, including digital signage, media and broadcast, enterprise communications, manufacturing, medical imaging, and factory automation. A storied history of innovation highlights the company’s pioneering product launches and expansive market reach.

Matrox Video’s focus in recent years is the expansion of their standards-based uncompressed, lightly compressed, and intelligently compressed product portfolio for content capture and processing, visualization, real-time encoding, recording, live streaming, IP KVM extension and switching, decoding, and AV distribution over IP. Greater demand for SMPTE ST 2110 and IPMX-based open standards implementations are driving the next wave of technological innovation to support new and emerging performance media-over-IP workflows and applications. Matrox Video’s broadcast OEM products continue to form the basis of broadcast graphics systems, channel-in-a-box systems, video servers and other PC- and cloud-based video solutions used worldwide.

Matrox Imaging continues to revolutionize its offerings for deep learning training and inference, 3D imaging, and vision guidance for robotics applications—all to meet surging demand from automation markets. With industry demand for AI-driven technology and ever-more-capable vision systems, Matrox Imaging is extending the speed, fidelity, and functionality of their vision product offerings, while ensuring the ease-of-use and interoperability that customers expect from a key industry leader.

Foundations of the Future
Through the decades, the organization’s mission remains the same—dedication to exceptional engineering and the highest manufacturing standards, coupled with careful attention to interoperability, industry standards, and protecting their customer’s investments.

Core values center on longevity and excellence, so when Lorne M. Trottier became sole owner of Matrox in 2019, he oversaw a complete corporate recommitment to its employees and their well-being. The average employee lifespan at Matrox is more than 12 years, a clear indication of the community spirit that thrives in this organization.

“This is a big milestone for Matrox, and on the heels of the past few years, it is a tremendous achievement that I am pleased to celebrate with every single member of the Matrox team,” said Lorne Trottier, president and Co-Founder, Matrox. “I am exceptionally proud of Matrox, the values we espouse, and our committed drive for excellence. Our mission is the same now as it was back in 1976: building exceptional products that solve real-world problems and creating technology that empowers customers to reach their goals. I raise a glass to the people and minds that have helped steer Matrox to its current position, as we look to another 45 years of ambitious ideas.”
