MONTREAL – June 23, 2014 — Matrox® Video today announced the immediate availability of full support for the latest releases of the Adobe® Creative Cloud™ and Avid® Media Composer® 8 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.

“Our customers want the freedom to work easily and efficiently with whatever app is best for each task they encounter,” said Wayne Andrews, product manager at Matrox. “These unified drivers, with support for popular NLE software from Adobe, Apple and Avid, give them maximum versatility to create and deliver their stories their way.”

Matrox I/O products provide broadcast-quality video and audio input, output and monitoring to enable traditional tape-based workflows including deck control for frame-accurate batch capture and print-to-tape. 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.

Price and availability

Matrox MXO2 devices are priced starting at $449 US (£338, €382) not including local taxes and delivery. Matrox Mojito MAX is priced at $995 US (£749, €799). Matrox products are available through a worldwide network of authorized dealers. Support for Windows is part of Matrox driver release 7.6 and support for Mac OS is part of Matrox driver release 4.2. The drivers are now available to registered users as a free download from the Matrox website.
