Matrox has a Connections view of the Monarch on their Press site, that wasn’t available back when it was announced at IBC. I’ve previously speculated on what connections it would have; if this mockup is accurate, looks like I’m going to be disappointed.

Now clearly this is a render and not a photo of the actual product – so I still have some very slight hope that features like loop-out and secondary audio surprise us in the final product. Not a lot though. The loop-out problem can be solved with a good powered HDMI splitter; the lack of aux audio has no easy fix.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
