will have answers on the Matrox MXO/Mini by mid week
Hi scott any thought on the matrox mini? Thanks
well i am still waiting on Eric to benchmark them (MXO's) they work great
just not sure if the H264 acelleration is justified.
Eric??? should have been in here on Monday instead of taking a holiday... sheesh some employees... wanting time off and all.
(in his defense we had our best month ever in Aug.)
I am thinking in getting it without the max. not sure how good it is. Thanks
The MXO2 series works fine with the current Matrox tools. We just have not tested the acceleration results with the Max.
A very simple and effective solution if you are happy with one Monitor as your PPRO UI is to add a second monitor and use that via a PC connection. from the second output of your graphics card.
You can use the highest quality PC Monitor of your choice or any high quality TV type monitor that has a PC interface connector.
Important thing to do is to get a monitor that has best "angle of viewing acceptance".
PPRO recognise the second monitor and makes it available for playback from the Playback Menu.
One down side (bug) I do not understand is that it needs to be set each time one changes sequences within a project.
I would be interested to know if there was any extra CPU load between the matrox and blackmagic compared to a std Premiere Pro sequence
Thank you all for the feedback.
Thanks you so much fro your feedback. is it suitable for color correction. Thanks
I believe a good quality well set up PC monitor is very adequate for CC work.
Many Monitors you can buy now are "dual purpose". They are designed to play media from DVD / BluRay, etc... as well as act as a PC monitor. They are equal to very good television monitors.
They are not Broadcast Reference Monitors but considering that most people are viewing on LCDs ( or old fashioned SD CRT televisions)...they are easily up to the task for most users.
Win 7 OS has very decent monitor calibration built in. I use the color bars generated by PPRO as part of this process ( matching monitors).
Both monitors can have different colour profiles made, I use a spyder pro studio kit.
Thank you both. I will be going to the Video expo and I will check out the Max02 mini.
