The MXO2 LE with MAX (Laptop) from Matrox is designed to provide all the features of an I/O card in a sturdy, portable breakout box. It features both professional audio and video connectivity. The device can easily be moved among laptops in your facility or in the field as the need arises. This model is designed for use with either PC or Mac laptops.

This model features Matrox MAX, a technology that implements faster than real-time 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 more quickly and system resources are liberated for other tasks. This technology allows direct export to higher-quality H.264 Blu-ray compliant files from Compressor.

This solution offers broadcast-quality audio & video input and output. Calibration controls include blue-only. You also benefit from a wide variety of HD and SD workflows with Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro thanks to Matrox MXO2 LE's 10-bit hardware up/down/cross scaling engine and support for a wide variety of file-based formats and industry-standard codecs.

Note! A different host bus adapter is required for use with a desktop unit and may be purchased separately or as a part of a different MXO2 desktop solution.
