Hello,

I am very soon to purchase either the Matrox MXO2 or the AJA IoHD.

If I can briefly explain my workflow, hopefully you can give some assistance as to which product better suites my needs. If the Matrox, in which codec should I capture.

I am planning on capturing upwards of 300 3-minute segments live with graphic overlays through BoinxTV. This segments have the sole purpose of being burned to DVD as soon as possible taking quality into the upmost consideration.

Could you please inform me whether or not the Matrox MXO2 is suitable for my needs as a live capture device and if so please give me a brief explanation of the workflow including suggested connections from a camera into the Matrox as well as the codecs I should capture.

Thank you so much for your time.

Hello Segallb and thank you for your interest in Matrox Products. There is a Using BoinxTV with Matrox MXO2 document that should help you: http://boinx.com/boinxtv/equipment/matrox/pdfs/matrox_mxo2.pdf

For your first question

you can actually capture to all of our formats, but if quality is an issue, which I believe it is, you can capture to Pro Res.

We are proud to support Boinx
http://www.matrox.com/video/en/products/mac/mxo2_family/application/
and they are of us http://www.boinx.com/boinxtv/equipment/matrox/

The added feature of having any of our Matrox MXO2 family of products is you can add our Matrox MAX technology to any of these devices. http://www.matrox.com/video/en/products/mac/max/ The Matrox Max technology gives you faster than realtime encoding to H.264 and blows away the competition. This might be something that you need now and definately will be useful in the future.

If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask.

regards,

JD

Hey Segal

The MXO2 will act as the bridge between your live video input source and BoinxTV, but how you capture (what codec, frame rate etc) is determined by your settings inside BoinxTV. That said, your capture settings will largely depend on the input video format / BoinxTV project format, the processing power of your computer and, of course, the codecs that you actually have installed on your computer.

For what it's worth, Boinx recommend you use Apple Intermediate Codec.

Hope it helps
Andy
