Matrox MXO2 Family of I/O Devices for Mac and PC
Matrox Video Products Group today announced Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 4.2 support on the Mac for Matrox MXO2 Mini, MXO2 LE, MXO2 and MXO2 Rack. These devices provide all the features of an I/O card and a sturdy breakout box with the added advantage of portability. They can be easily moved among the Mac Pros in a facility or taken on the road with MacBook Pros. Users get highly-reliable, broadcast-quality input/output and HDMI video monitoring with unique Matrox calibration controls including blue-only. They also benefit from a wide variety of HD and SD workflows with Adobe Premiere Pro thanks to Matrox MXO2’s 10-bit hardware up/down/cross scaling engine and support for a wealth of file-based formats and industry-standard codecs.
