Sorry, i'm being a bit slow. MXO was easy - its gives you great color grading on a Apple 23" ACD.

1. Reading these posts BC says I can use the MX02 to get color grading on ?any? HDMI LCD or Plasma screen. So I dont need an ACD. I can edit on a Macbook Pro and color grade on my existing HDMI LCD/Plasma screen. Is this right? If so thats great cause it would save me cash as I have an LCD already.

2. The MX02 can ingest - does that mean it replaces the need for a blackmagic intensity card?

3. What would be really useful is a picture of the MX02 in a typical workflow situation from ingest to edit to grading to render showing what type of equipment it can connect to.

Thanks

Yes, however the HDMI monitor must support 1920x1080 in order to use with the MXO2. (It cannot be a 1920x1200 HDMI monitor).

This is correct. By having the MXO2, you do not need a Blackmagic intensity card. The MXO2 gives you broadcast-quality input/output, monitoring, and up/down/cross conversion to streamline your workflow with Apple Final Cut Studio 2. Please check this page for more product information.

We appreciate your comments and will relay your suggestions to the appropriate department. However, please note that the MXO2 can connect to any video/audio device that has the same type of connections that the MXO2 does and works in the same resolutions.


Hope this helps...and Please contact us should you have any additional questions.


Best regards,
B.C.

Is not possible to use such resolution? no 1920x1200? what happens with a monitor like Dell UltraSharp 2407WFP? no image?

Hello downtown

Presently, Matrox doesn't have a list of MXO2 validated HDMI monitors.
Therefore, we can only mention the MXO2 minimum system requirements, found on the MXO2 FAQ document question 13 :
HDMI monitor that supports 1920×1080 and "dot-by-dot" mode is recommended for 1:1 pixel mapping

The RS-422 port is on the side of the MXO2 (where the handles are), opposite the perforated metal sheet.

Kind regards,

Ok but what about 1920x1200 monitors as most LCD are? do You see correctly the image with an empty space on the sides? or it does compensate the 120 pixel remaining?

Hello from Italy

Here's one more detail about the MXO2's minimum system requirements for an HDMI connected Monitor or TV :
(Please note that this information is exclusively for monitors / TVs that are connected to the MXO2 via HDMI)

The MXO2 requires a monitor or TV that accept a signal from the YUV colorspace. Monitors that have an RGB colorspace will not accept the YUV signal coming from the MXO2. Therefore, TVs (or some monitors) connected through HDMI must accept a signal from the YUV colorspace and support the 1920 x 1080 resolution to display the signal coming from the MXO2.

So, linking in with your resolution question, the signal sent from the MXO2 through HDMI is 1920x1080, therefore the MXO2 supports monitors / TVs that have this resolution and go through the YUV colorspace.

Kind regards,
