I need to clear things up a bit.

1.Does the matrox mxo2 mini playback (Monitor out by HDMI) cineform files (in fullraster of 1080 25p) captured by Prospect HD 3 or 4 in realtime in Premiere CS3?

2.Does the AJA I/o Express playback (Monitor out by HDMI) cineform files (in fullraster of 1080 25p) captured by Prospect HD 3 or 4 in realtime in Premiere CS3?

3.Which of these two is the best purchase in your opinion?

Best Regards

1. MXO2 mini is for CS4 only.
2. AJA I/O Express is not out yet.

If you wanting to run CS3, AJA I/O Express under Prospect HD v4 will be only way to go.

Thanks David

So at the moment which cards and brands does Prospect HD 4 support with monitor out at the moment in CS3 for PC, I have a hard time to grasp this?

Could you specify this David, I think many would like to know this.

1. Brand (AJA, Matrox, Decklink and so on)

2. Model number

Best Regards

We support

AJA HS
AJA LH
AJA LHe
AJA 2Ke

adding right now

AJA LHi
AJA ioExpress

To use either Matrox or Blackmagic devices you need to use their editing modes, and we have not profiled the performance as it will not be using the Prospect accelerator. We have confirmed under CS4 than both MXO2 and Intensity to playback CineForm AVIs in either edit modes.

Maybe that timeframe for LHi, we still need engineering samples to test ioExpress -- it is not out yet.

I'm interested in what the Matrox MXO2 Mini can do for me.
Right now I'm Vista 64/PHD4/CS4 w/ ATI 4800 card- which is doing a good job of HDMI full screen overlay to HDTV.
1) for a CF workflow, is there any advantage to using the MXO2 for monitoring, rather than the ATI card? Speed? Quality? Reduce demand on system resources?
2) Matrox marketing materials imply that this product provides calibratation tools that will fine tune an HDTV into a reference monitor. Anyone had experience with that feature??
I'd love to give Matrox some money, but you know, If it aint' broke....
Thanks

I use my Samsung 32" as a referance monitor.
The setup instructions in the manual for the mxo mini are only for NTSC.... bad for PAL but I reckon they will change that soon on calibration side of things.
(I use Spyder 3 for my calibrating of screeens anyway)
I can view out put of full rez Cinform files from CS4 via HDMI out on the mxo mini.
I can also view my CS4 AfterEffects projects with Cineformfiles in full rez without rendering my composition.

Hope that explains what I am saying.

Just note that I work on a fast i7 PC system.

Can you load up VirtualDub and go to the File -> Capture AVI option and let me know if the Mini is listed under Devices?
