I teach TV Broadcasting class at my middle school. We do daily broadcasts to all the classrooms in my school. The broadcast are a mix of live (on camera, skype, etc.) and prerecorded content. We use several sources for input, including a Mac desktop, Mac iBook Laptop, DVD/VHS player, Canon GL2 video camera, (for audio stereo plugs, rca white/red jacks and xlr) and a big black box that is a DVR that records and plays back programs from Channel One News. We use Boinx TV, iMovie, Skype, Keynote, and Quicktime for recording and playback of content.

All of this input goes to one coaxial Output that goes to the MDF and out to classrooms passing through some signal amplifiers along the way.

Is the MXO2 the way to go to gather and manage all these inputs and get them outputted in the highest quality possible to our video network? (most of the classes are viewing our broadcast through XGA 1024 X 768 quality LCD projectors on 6 foot screens in classrooms.) Thank you for your help!

Hi John and thank you for your interest in Matrox products. With regards to your described workflow, please note that the MXO2 family of products can ingest one video stream at a given time. The formats supported on the MXO2 inputs are NTSC, PAL, 720p, 1080i, and 1080psf. MXO2 can then output your video to a variety of formats (Please refer to Appendix C and D located on this page). Please note that to achieve multiple inputs, you'll need to have multiple MXO2 devises on multiple systems - You can not have more than one MXO2 connected to a single machine.

In order to use the MXO2 device on a laptop, you need to have one free ExpressCard/34 slot in order to install the Matrox PCIe host ExpressCard/34 adapter. Please check this page for the MXO2 (for Mac) system requirements.

With the MXO2 I/O devices and BoinxTV live production software your can easily create live-to-disk, live-to-internet and live-to-stage video. Record studio shows, podcasts, sports events, lectures and more using your Mac and multiple cameras. Please check this page for a list of supported applications with the MXO2 devices (for Mac).


Thanks and please let us know if you have any other questions...


Best regards,
B.C.
