Posted Feb 16, 2009 Print Version     Page 1of 1
  

Matrox® Video Products Group today announced Matrox MXO2 Rack, a new version of the award-winning Matrox MXO2 I/O device for the Mac. The 2RU-sized Matrox MXO2 Rack is designed for broadcast news operations, OB vans, and other environments where equipment must be rackmounted. It streamlines editing workflow with Apple Final Cut Studio on Mac Pros and MacBook Pros, providing broadcast-quality input/output, monitoring, and up/down/cross conversion. Users can benefit from file-based workflows with support for XDCAM, XDCAM HD, XDCAM EX, and P2 without transcoding. In addition, they are not limited to using a single codec as with some other I/O devices on the market. In HD for example, Matrox MXO2 Rack supports a variety of codecs including ProRes, ProRes422 HQ, DVCPRO HD, and uncompressed 8- and 10-bit.


"The first version of Matrox MXO2 was a big hit at NAB winning four prestigious awards and sales have exploded since it began shipping this summer," said Alberto Cieri, Matrox sales and marketing director. "With Matrox MXO2 Rack we are building on that success. We listened to our customers and are now delivering Matrox MXO2 Rack to meet the needs of broadcasters and post facilities who require heavy-duty, rackmountable gear with more audio inputs and outputs.

Matrox MXO2 Rack will be demonstrated at Broadcast Video Expo in London on February 17 on stand C6.
