I need an input device for my Macbook Pro, and am thinking about an MXO2 to add to my MXO. I use the MXO as a scanconverter during VJ performances (since Apple doesn't support video-out on current gen. macs) and would add the MXO2 to over live camera input.

So my question is, will this work, can I load both the MXO and MXO2 drivers on the same machine. Using the MXO2 for output is not an option as my VJ software needs the GPU and doesn't support a seperate video output.

Hello and thanks for your continued support and interest in Matrox products. With regards to your question; please note that you can not have both the MXO and the MXO2 installed in the same computer system.


Thanks,
B.C.

Hmm, that's a shame because not being to able to use both, automatically renders the MXO2 line useless for me as I want to use the great quality of the MXO as a scanconvertor.

Do you now if the MXO plays nice with an AJA or Motu device instead? I used to have a Mac Pro with a Decklink as input and the MXO for out which worked great. But I just went with a mobile setup (traveling with a Mac Pro ***** and is a nightmare for your back) so need a mobile solution.

Although we have not officially tested this setup, but based on customer feedback, the MXO would work in a system with AJA or Motu.


Happy holidays!

Well here's some good news then Smile

Last time I checked, despite the info to the contrary, both the MXO and MXO2 can be installed concurrently in the same system with the caveat being that the MXO will only work in presentation mode (scan conversion mode) when doing so ... by happy coincidence tho, in your case, that would seem to be exactly what you are looking for.

It really is a crying shame that Matrox cannot figure out how to allow full concurrent install operability of both their MXO and MXO2 devices, but there you go.

Very Best
Andy

To be honest, while the names are very closly matched MXO and MXO2 one would expect the MXO2 would do at least everything the MXO can do and more. But drivers and functionality are very different.
Marketing and technology wise I simply don't understand either.
Add to this that another product is added which this time can work stand-alone as a convertor box PC/Mac compatible...
