Quad HD Capture Card

Matrox VS4’s powerful recording capabilities let you record up to four channels simultaneously using the VS4Recorder stand-alone recording application. Matrox VS4 can also be used to create video streaming productions with Telestream Wirecast and StudioCoast vMix.

Capture up to four HD video streams

Matrox VS4 lets you take advantage of professional broadcast video and audio sources for the utmost quality in your internet productions.

Using a single PCIe slot, Matrox VS4 provides up to four independent HD inputs with up to eight embedded audio channels per source, taking up an absolute minimum of real estate in your PC.



VS4Recorder Pro

A trial version of the VS4Recorder Pro software is included with the Matrox VS4 which records up to four live video feeds. It is the ideal solution for recording live multi-camera productions such as concerts and sporting events, and repurposing and archiving video assets. A full version of VS4Recorder Pro can be purchased at any time.

Effortless on-site set-up

Just hook up your cameras and Matrox VS4 automatically detects the presence, resolution and frame rate of all inputs so you don’t have to manually set up each source.
Because all inputs on Matrox VS4 are independent, you can use HD and SD cameras in the same production.




Extensive audio support

Matrox VS4 captures up to eight channels of embedded audio on each input. You have the flexibility to go from a simple stereo mix to surround sound for your post-event editing needs.




Expect excellence

Award-winning Matrox Video technology powers a full range of content creation and delivery platforms used by broadcasters, post-production facilities, project studios, corporate communicators and videographers worldwide.
