If I have source footage that has captioning data on line 21, will that captioning stay intact if I upconvert it to HD thru the MXO2?

Hello,

When upconverting from SD to HD with the MXO2, the closed captioning line 21 is not preserved in the conversion.

In release 1.3.1, Matrox MXO2 offers a unique patent pending workflow to capture, playback, and preserve closed captioning data while editing projects in Final Cut Pro. The Matrox MXO2 preserves the digital closed captioning data in the VANC (vertical ancillary data space).
Here are the MXO2 FAQs - closed caption details are found at question 14.
Since line 21 isn't included in the VANC, the closed captioning information from line 21 isn't kept through the MXO2's SDI output.

We encourage to post this request in the MXO2's Product Feature Enhancements section in the user forum.

For additional questions regarding the MXO2, contact the customer care team via a Contact Me form or via phone : Toll Free: (800) 361-4903 (North America) or (514) 822-6364 (Worldwide)

Hi just like the original poster asked, I like to know if the same it true for Windows on capturing Line 21.

I have Intel Quad-core 2.4Ghz with 8 GB RAM running with 2GB VRAM Nvidia video card. The monitors are HD-compliant. The system is running Windows 7 professional. I intend to buy Adobe CS5 Production Premium when it gets released with my student discount.

Is there any MXO2 product that can do capturing with closed captions? I see that there is one on the Mac side, what about the Windows side?

Sorry, I posted too quick as I wanted to add one more thing. I am not a professional editor but a hobby editor so I am not into looking at expensive products, just something for a serious hobby user.

Hello and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. With regards to your question; this feature is not implemented on the PC (Windows) version of the MXO2 product.

At this point, only the Mac version of MXO2 LE, MXO2, and MXO2 Rack provide HD-SDI closed captioning support using the patent-pending Matrox 4VANC tool. Please check this page and refer to the "HD-SDI closed captioning support" section for more information...


Best regards,
B.C.

Thank you very much for your reply. I did look at the linked page you provided. I can't help but noticed that Matrox worked with CPC to develop the CC feature.

I just have one question. I know CPC has CaptionMaker. Why is the same CC feature not included for the PC side? Is that a limitation or can it be created for use with Adobe Premiere Pro CS5?

I am willing to wait a year for the firmware update. I have done a lot of researching and compared many features for my desires and the price among products made by AJA, Green Valley, Blackmagicdesign, etc. I am quite comfortable on getting your product. Otherwise I will get something else if Matrox won't support it.

Hello and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. This has been a feature that we have been looking at for a long time now. It just does not seem to work with our firmware. If this changes we will reply to this post right away.
