(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 8, 2013) Matrox® Video today announced support for the upcoming release of Adobe® professional video editing tools, including Adobe Mercury Transmit for Adobe Premiere® Pro and Adobe SpeedGrade™, with the Matrox MXO2™ family of I/O devices and the Matrox Mojito MAX™ I/O card. The award-winning Matrox I/O products provide broadcast-quality video and audio input, output and monitoring to enable traditional tape-based workflows including deck control for frame-accurate batch capture and print-to-tape. They are also the only I/O solutions on the market that let users encode H.264 files for delivery to the web, iPad® and iPhone® up to five times faster than software alone without sacrificing quality. In addition, MXO2 devices provide cross-platform Mac® and Windows® support and are still the only solutions that connect anywhere, Mac and PC, via Thunderbolt™, PCIe® or ExpressCard/34®—with the same versatile unit. WYSIWYG support for Adobe After Effects® and Adobe Photoshop® will also be provided.
"At NAB we're revealing the next version of Adobe Premiere Pro which provides incredible performance enhancements for all aspects of video production," said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. "Having support for Matrox I/O devices offers our customers very reliable, high-quality and top performing video options including the new device control engine for accurate and reliable tape-based workflows."
"Broadcasters worldwide have standardized on Matrox I/O solutions for use in the studio, in OB vans, and on set," said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing at Matrox. "Our customers have come to expect tight integration and stability from our hardware plug-in for Adobe software and we will deliver that to them again, including native support for the next version of Adobe Premiere Pro deck control and Adobe SpeedGrade output using Mercury Transmit playback."
Matrox I/0 products will be featured at the 2013 NAB Show in the Matrox booth SL4616.
