Matrox MXO2 Mini - Great Things DO Come in Small Packages!

I think itís time to start talking more about one of the most cost effective tools you can add to your HD video editing arsenal - the Matrox MXO2 Mini. There are lots of great features in this mighty mite, and Iím going to use this article to tell you all about them. Weíve had great success in the past using an FAQ format to better explain new products and technology, so weíll keep at it now.

What is the MXO2 Mini?
The MXO2 Mini is a portable I/O (input/output) device. It supports both Standard Definition and High Definition footage. On the SD side you get composite, S-Video and Component input and output. For HD you get Component and HDMI in and out. HDMI can of course also be used for SD footage, but I like to think of it as an HD interface.

How do I hook up the MXO2 Mini to my computer?
The MXO2 Mini is an external device that works with both desktops and laptops. It supports Windows (XP or Vista with Windows 7 drivers coming later this year) and Mac (Snow Leopard drivers now available for free download). The MXO2 Mini comes with your choice of PCIe adapter card for your desktop or ExpressCard/34 card for your laptop.

The Mini is flexible and portable. You can easily disconnect the Mini from one machine and attach it to any other, as long as one of the Matrox interface cards are installed in it. This means that you can use it with multiple machines, in different locations, in the field or in the studio. Just add an affordable adapter card (available for just $99.00 each) to any machine. Itís that easy and inexpensive!

What NLE software does MXO2 Mini Support?
On the Mac, the MXO2 Mini supports Apple Final Cut Pro 6 or 7 and all of the apps found in the latest Final Cut Studio 3 bundle as well as the previous FCS2. On the PC, MXO2 Mini supports Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and the Adobe CS4 Production Premium.
