The MXO2 External Video I/O for PC/Mac from Matrox is an external video I/O device that interfaces with your Macintosh or PC computer. The MXO2 supports broadcast-quality video input and output. The easily portable device ships with a PCI Express x1 host card for desktops and an ExpressCard/34 for laptops, each of which is PC and Mac compatible.

The device features a plethora of I/O connections, including HD/SD-SDI, HD/SD analog component, Y/C, composite, and HDMI. It also features Genlock capability for broadcast environments. It works with popular editing software, including Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro, and can capture video using any codec supported by the host software.

Note: Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 support for Mac OSX to be available in early November 2010.

Flexible Workflow

            Great for monitoring to HD or standard def on NTSC monitor. Realtime up-down conversion of multiple formats is flawless. Only thing missing is an RS422 connection to control decks with timecode.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Matrox MXO2 External Video I/O for PC/Mac:

              I've just added this to my Final Cut Studio system to allow me to use non-firewire VTRs for I/O in both SD and HD formats. The range of input/output options it supports is impressive, although I haven't yet had the opportunity to test them all. I compared it with similar products from [...] and found it to a very good value. Its ability to work with both a MacPro tower or a MacBook Pro laptop was a big plus. My biggest concern prior to purchase was how reliable it would be compared to the others [...]In the few weeks I've had it, it has worked perfectly. I did have one installation issue, however. The PCIe board that came with it was dead on arrival. Matrox customer service was excellent however, and sent me a replacement board right away. They have been very quick and responsive to all my inquiries. Their 3 year warranty with free technical support is reassuring, too.My only wish would be that the MXO2 would work independently as a bidirectional signal converter (component to SDI, for example) as does the BMD Multibridge Eclipse. MXO2 only seems to output signals when controlled by Final Cut.
