AJA Io Exp or Matrox MXO2 mini?

I am looking for a proper solid HD monitoring output for my PC laptop via the express slot.
Which solution will work better with Prospect 4k, AJA Io Express or Matrox MXO2 mini?
And...are the AJA/Matrox drivers included in the Prospect 4k file?

Thanks!

Johnnie

CS3 + Prospect with work with the AJA solutions only. Working on CS4 now. So AJA IO Express is the way to go. We do like the MXO2 minis, however Matrox hasn't yet provided the API to access it.

Thank you David for your (very) quick response!

Will CS2 work too?
And drivers? should I install the AJA drivers or the Prospect 4k exe. have all I need?

Thanks again.

Johnnie

CS2 is likely still supported but in no longer tested, so please do your own testing before making a purchase decision. We include AJA drivers. The retail drivers are slightly different, I heard that you can use either, even although AJA remember the OEM drivers for third party products (like Prospect 4K.)
