Matrox MXO2 Rack with MAX, the ultimate desktop solution – all the features of a high-quality capture card plus breakout box in a rugged 2RU form factor.

Matrox MXO2 Rack works with Mac and PC, and let’s you get the most from Apple Final Cut Studio and Adobe CS6 Production Premium. The built-in Matrox MAX H.264 encoding accelerator lets you deliver H.264 files for the web, mobile devices, and Blu-ray up to 5 times faster than software encoders such as Apple Compressor and Adobe Media Encoder. System connectivity via PCI Express®, ExpressCard®/34, and Thunderbolt™ technology ensures maximum versatility for use in the studio and in OB vans. HD/SD 10-bit video connectivity via HDMI, SDI, and analog; professional audio connectivity via 4-in/8-out balanced XLR, 4-in/4-out unbalanced AES/EBU, up to 16-channels of SDI embedded audio I/O, and 8-channels of HDMI embedded audio I/O; plus genlock with loop-through, ensure maximum I/O flexibility. Edit anything, anywhere


Matrox MAXMatrox MAX is a unique technology that implements faster than realtime H.264 encoding for resolutions ranging from iPod to HD. It uses a dedicated hardware processor to accelerate the creation of H.264 files for Blu-ray, the web, and mobile devices. By using specialized hardware acceleration, jobs are finished with amazing speed and system resources are liberated for other tasks. Quality and flexibility are ensured through direct integration with professional applications such as Apple Compressor on the Mac and Adobe Media Encoder on the PC. As an added benefit, the Matrox MAX technology allows direct export to higher-quality H.264 Blu-ray compliant files from Compressor.
