MONTREAL – July 15, 2013 — Matrox® Video today announced the immediate availability of full support for the latest releases of the Adobe® Creative Cloud™ and Avid® Media Composer® 7 families of professional video editing and content creation tools with the Matrox MXO2™ family of I/O devices and the Matrox Mojito™ MAX I/O card.

They are also the only I/O solutions on the market that let users encode H.264 files for delivery to the web, iPad® and iPhone® up to five times faster than software alone without sacrificing quality. In addition, MXO2 devices provide cross-platform Mac® and Windows® support and are still the only solutions that connect anywhere, Mac and PC, via Thunderbolt™, PCIe® or ExpressCard/34® — with the same versatile unit.

“These unified drivers support the latest releases of NLE software from Adobe, Apple and Avid”, said Wayne Andrews, product manager at Matrox. “They are designed to give our customers the freedom to work easily and efficiently with whatever app is best for each task as they craft and deliver their stories.

    I am using Speedgrade CC with the latest integration with premiere pro… the send to speedgrade option from premiere. This is pretty darn cool, but it’s pretty buggy. One of the things I’m trying to do that doesn’t seem to work right is… when I enable the Mercury Transmit option in settings… I can see what I’m working on in my large external monitor through my Matrox MXO2. This is great… but it turns off the view on my computer screen. When I use the widget mask… I can’t control it in this mode. It acts like an extension of my desktop.. but my mouse won’t move into the mxo monitor. Any updates on this or anything else buggy that you know is being addressed?
