Matrox Video Products Group today announced Windows 7 support for Matrox MXO2 LE, MXO2 and MXO2 Rack. The Matrox MXO2 family of I/O devices streamlines editing with Adobe CS4 Production Premium.

The Matrox MXO2 devices are also available with Matrox MAX technology for accelerated H.264 file creation using Adobe Media Encoder.
“The entire Matrox MXO2 product line is now cross platform – PC and Mac – as well as laptop and desktop, and can easily be moved among the editing stations in a facility or taken on the road,” said Alberto Cieri, Matrox senior sales and marketing director. “Not only do these products meet the needs of content creators for input, output, and monitoring, they also speed up delivery to today’s digital formats. Creating Blu-ray discs and video for the web and mobile devices is much faster than ever before with Matrox MAX H.264 encoding technology.”
