I just purchased a new Sony NX5U camera that records in AVCHD and you have the option of recording the audio in LCPM or Dolby Digital onto cards or a flash memory unit.

If I purchase the Matrox LE, could I connect the camera's playback (via its SDI out) into the LE and have it do an on the fly transcode to Pro Res LT and I would use "capture now" in Final Cut Pro to bring it in. If I can do this, will it preserve the original source timecode from the camera?

I am currently using Final Cut Pro version 6...which is limited to three flavors of Pro Res and does not contain Pro Res LT.

Any advice you can offer will be appreciated. As well as alternative ways of working with AVCHD footage and Final Cut Pro using the LE.

I hope to purchase it in the next few days.

Thanks,

John

Hi John and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. With regards to your question; you will certainly be able to accomplish your described workflow with the Matrox MXO2 LE device. You will be able to use the inputs of the MXO2 LE to ingest your video to any Pro Res codec supported by the Final Cut Pro version you are using. Please check this page for more information.

As for your time code question; it will start from zero on capture through our device. Please note however, that MXO2 LE's RS-422 serial connector allows an application, such as Final Cut Pro, to control a device that uses the RS-422 SMPTE time code protocol, such as a VTR or digital disk recorder, to ensure frame-accurate capture and edit-to-tape.


Best regards,
B.C.
