Gary -

So the Mini's MAX H.264 encoding benefits only...

- FCP
- Premiere

...correct?

Is the Premiere support for both Mac and Windows versions?

It also states on Matrox's website that it ...."works with your favorite applications"... does that include (some of my favorites!!):

- iMovie '09
- Vegas Pro 9

Pricing in euro for Belgian customers is much higher then mentioned above, instead of €758 we pay €1625 at a big known videodealer in Antwerp.

How does this device work with the newer Mac Pros that only have a Mini Displayport and no Express slot?

Any word yet on whether the Mini will eventually be able to capture to Cineform codec?

The unit comes with either a PCIe card (for Tower based computers) or an ExpressCard 34 (for laptops). In fact, I think The VideoGuys, has an option bundle that contains both cards.

If you do get this, you may want to strongly consider purchasing it with the MAX option.

The Macbook Pro no longer has the ExpressCard34 slot unless you get the 17".

New Macs w/o express slot can not use MXO2 or MXO2 mini

Okay, just to make sure, to use the MINI with any flavor laptop you need an express card slot. That's it?

Will it be able to play back the Canon 5D M2 30p* raw files through HDMI from a FCS2 timeline without having to render?
I know the Blackmagic Intensity card doesn't.

* from what I read, the Matrox MXO2 Mini supports 25 and 29,94P.
Easy for me to conform 30p to 29,97P with Cinema tools

Does anyone know if the MXO2 Mini will work with Edius 5 /Neo2 ?

Cheers

Ok, let me knock out the last 3 Questions:

1) Yes you MUST have an Express slot to use MXO2 Mini with your laptop

2) MXO2 Mini isn't an accelerator. If your laptop can;t play HD without rendering, then the MXO2 mini won't either. Youc an use Neoscene to convert your footage to Cineform CODEC. MOXO2 Mini will play back cineform from the timeline.

3) Edius is not supported at this time. For HDMI output with Edius check out the HD Spark or HD Storm PCIe cards.

Cheers

Thanks for all the info, Gary. Forgive me for being dense... for a Windows workflow, would I capture to Matrox MPEG2 I-frame or Uncompressed before conversion with NeoScene? And if capturing Uncompressed, how many hours of video would fit on a laptop with 400GB of free space?

Glad I found this tread. Has anyone set up a HDMI portable PC laptop capture device using this hardware? I am thinking about using it to upgrade the quality of my Sony V1U. My other option is the Nano Flash but it is much more expensive.
