Why buy an I/O card and a breakout box when you can get all the features of both in Matrox MXO2? This award-winning device also gives you the added advantage of portability. It can easily be moved among the Mac Pros in your facility as the need arises and you can take it on the road with a MacBook Pro. It gives you highly-reliable, broadcast-quality HD/SD input/output via HDMI, SDI, and analog; professional audio inputs and outputs including built-in 5.1 surround sound monitoring; and HDMI video monitoring with calibration controls including blue-only. You also benefit from a wide variety of workflows with Final Cut Studio thanks to Matrox MXO2’s 10-bit hardware up/down/cross scaling engine and support for a wealth of file-based formats and industry-standard codecs. Enjoy maximum I/O flexibility with Matrox MXO2 – edit anything, anywhere!

Baseline (CAVLC) and main (CABAC) profiles
  • 2.0, 3.0, 3.1, 4.0, 4.1, and 4.2 level support
  • GOP structure
  • Constant bit rate (bit rate remains stable, quality varies depending on complexity of each frame)
  • Constant quality (each video frame is analyzed to deliver the targeted quality, bit rate varies while keeping the lowest possible bit rate)
  • Variable bit rate (squeezes out the highest possible quality at the average target bit rate )
  • Noise filtering (saves bits by reducing high frequencies in the video)
  • De-interlacing (ensures high-quality encodes of interlaced SD and 1080i source material)
  • Data rate slider (produces smoother or more abrupt transitions)

Scaling
  • Multi-tap 10-bit realtime processing
  • HD to SD downscaling - Proper conversion of the HD color space to the SD color space and proper aspect ratio conversion to anamorphic, letterbox, and center cut are provided. You can monitor or record an SD master of an HD project in real time.
  • SD to HD upscaling - Proper conversion of the SD color space to the HD color space is performed. Footage with a 4:3 aspect ratio will be "pillarboxed". SD 16:9 footage will be scaled to full screen.
  • Cross conversions from 720 to 1080 and 1080 to 720
  • All scaling operations can be accompanied by frame rate conversion with 2:3:2:3 and 2:3:3:2 cadences to facilitate monitoring 23.98 fps footage on a monitor that does not support the specific frame rate.
