Matrox Announces Matrox MXO2 Dock

Thunderbolt Accessory for Matrox MXO2 I/O Devices Delivers Convenience and Connectivity


AMSTERDAM – September 6, 2012 — Matrox today announced Matrox® MXO2 Dock™ , an accessory that allows users of Matrox MXO2 I/O devices and MacBook Pro or MacBook Air to easily create an ideal ergonomic workspace for video editing and content creation. From a single Thunderbolt™ connection, users can add multiple peripherals including a large HDMI display, a full-size keyboard, and a mouse. A gigabit Ethernet port provides connectivity to a wired network, enabling data transfers 18 times faster than Wi-Fi. One SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port and two USB 2.0 ports are also provided.

“MacBook Pro and MacBook Air are powerful enough for many Matrox MXO2 users but they can be uncomfortable to use all day in the edit suite,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager at Matrox. “The new Matrox MXO2 Dock increases productivity by adding screen real estate and brings much-needed expandability for USB 3.0 storage, control surfaces, optical drives, and other peripherals.”

Matrox MXO2 Dock will be shown at IBC 2012 on stand 7.B29.

Availability

Priced at $349 US (€300, £249) not including local taxes and delivery, Matrox MXO2 Dock will be available through a worldwide network of authorized dealers in Q4 2012.
