  • Matrox MX02 Mini

    Matrox MX02 Mini

    November 7, 2010, 10:20 pm
    When Matrox first brought us the MXO2, I was so impressed I ended up with one in my edit suite.

    The MXO2 was a great addition to my Final Cut Suite, giving me features of more larger, and expensive breakout boxes. Fast forward and Matrox follows up the MXO2 with the MXO2 mini.

    The MXO2 mini is a small breakout box, with its optional "MAX" feature allows for faster than realtime H.264 file encoding. Reducing time to create Blu Rays, and web delivery. Unlike its bigger brother the MXO2, the mini supports not only Final Cut Pro, but Avid as well. Some of the features includes are as follows:

    Behind that I personally own an MXO2 I was not surprised at all to find this small this small device is absolutely fantastic. It’s ability to turn almost any HDMI screen into a professional monitor using Matrox’s Color Calibration tool is highly effective. Providing you with up to 10bit 4:2:2 color. As with its big brother this gives you control ver Hue, Chroma, Contrast, brightness and blue only. It also provides you with the ability to monitor at a 1:1 pixel ratio. This basically means there is no distorting of the image to fit the screen.
    Being so small the MXO2 mini can be taken anywhere and is supported by either PC or MAC, Avid or Final Cur Pro or even Adobe CS5. This means you can a full edit suite almost anywhere you go. Although trying to carry multiple screens around amy prove a little more difficult.
    Matrox has really hit this one out of the park, especially at its features and its incredible low price point of $450. This is a definite purchase for any editor loking to make their workflows more efficient. The only thing I truly miss on it is the inclusion of HDSI, but that would most definitely drive the price up. Plus If you need XLR’s and HDSDI then it’s bigger brother the MXO2 is right up your ally.

Now I could have easily done a top ten, but I wanted to show you the ones I simply love or are must haves for my edit suite. Now these are not any specific order. Just some of personal favorites.

      FCPX Part 2

      June 27, 2011, 10:48 am
      Audition is a another great feature added to FCPX. This tool feature basically allows me to preview and replace edits before I even replace it in the timeline, or what Apple now refers to as Story line. It reminds me of cover flow from iTunes but with video capabilities.

      By now I am sure everyone has heard all the bad press, negative reviews and blogs on FCPX. I am sure you know what is missing out of FCPX, if you don’t then clearly you are extremely busy and did not even know FCPX was released, therefore kudos to you.
