      Videoguys’ Matrox RT.X2 LE FAQ

      Our Videoguys HD editing experts have been getting a lot of questions about the exciting new Matrox RT.X2 LE and we’d like to share some of the most common answers with you to help you decide to get the Hardware Advantage today!

      Part I – Introducing Matrox RT.X2 LE

      What is the difference between Matrox RT.X2 LE and other capture cards?

      Matrox RT.X2 LE is a real-time hardware accelerator. This means that

      without rendering. That includes adding filters, transitions and
      special effects. That’s something that software can’t do on its own,
      even with the fastest quad core computers. For example; our DIY 6 Quad
      Core machine with Matrox RT.X2 LE can play back a timeline that
      includes two layers of HDV video with a slow motion filter on one
