Matrox Video Products will demonstrate direct capture from HDMI, SDI, and analog HD or SD video sources to H.264 files with the Matrox MXO2 devices and Matrox MAX technology for PC at IBC 2010 on the Matrox stand 7.B29.
“This new direct H.264 capture utility enables smooth workflows for faster delivery of video content and dailies,” said Dan Maloney, Matrox technical marketing manager. “Now it’s easy to capture material from any source for use on the web, iPad, iPod, iPhone, YouTube and more! In addition, dailies can be immediately available as low bit rate, manageable-sized files for delivery to a client.”
“We’re continuing to add value to the Matrox MXO2 product line,” said Alberto Cieri, Matrox senior director of sales and marketing. “With this we have started to implement our vision of expanding the capabilities of Matrox MAX technology beyond H.264 export acceleration.”
Matrox products are available through a worldwide network of authorized dealers. The new H.264 direct capture utility for PC will be available to registered users of Matrox MXO2 devices with the MAX option as a free download from the Matrox website in Fall 2010.
