KEYE-TV adds Matrox MXO2 Rack device to news trucks
KEYE-TV, the CBS affiliate in Austin, TX, has equipped four news trucks with the Matrox MXO2 Rack I/O device to support field editing with Final Cut Pro running on MacBook Pro computers.
According to station media manager and editor R. David Ruiz, KEYE-TV wanted a device that supported multiple input formats, including video from HDV camcorders recorded to CompactFlash cards, file footage shot of Betacam SX and legacy SDI and analog formats, and could see it through its transition to a tapeless workflow and HD.
The Matrox MXO2 Rack met all of those requirements and also could be mounted safely in the news trucks, he said.
