Matrox MXO Now Shipping
Portable Broadcast-Quality Audio/Video Output Adapter Streamlines Mac-based Video Production Workflows
Montreal, Canada, July 18, 2006 – Matrox Video Products Group today announced that Matrox MXO is now shipping. An easy-to-use DVI-to-audio/video output adapter for the Mac, Matrox MXO, takes the DVI output from a Mac computer or laptop and converts it to broadcast-quality video. Users can preview Apple Final Cut Pro projects or the output of other QuickTime-based applications such as Apple Soundtrack Pro and Motion, as well as Adobe After Effects as they will actually appear on TV and record them frame accurately to tape. Matrox MXO can also be used to provide a flicker-free video output of the computer desktop with any application, allowing the user to record and display Keynote and PowerPoint presentations, web browser sessions, and software application training.
"Matrox MXO incorporates patent-pending technology that provides important workflow enhancements for video production professionals on the Mac platform," said Alberto Cieri, Matrox sales and marketing director. "It’s a cost-effective external box that’s easy-to-use and portable. Final Cut Pro users will wonder how they ever worked without it."
