Hi there
I just heard about Matrox Mxo2, can you please tell me if I send my sequence from FCP to the 'Color' Program to adjust the color of my footage, can I use the HDMI TV as a broadcast monitor through the Matrox Mxo2 (remind you that in this stage I'm not using FCP but using the 'Color' program)
also can you please tell me that how can I calibrate it?
Thanks a lot
Ali

Hi Ali,

We appreciate your MXO2 consideration. With regards to your enquiry; The MXO2 has an HDMI monitor calibration which lets you adjust your HDMI monitor exactly like you would on a broadcast HD/SD monitor. It will provide blue only calibration, and this will ensure proper color adjustment and therefore turns your HDMI TV into a broadcast monitor. So once you send your sequence from FCP to Color; you can use your HDMI TV as a broadcast monitor through the Matrox MXO2 (even if you are not in FCP).


Thanks,
B.C.

So, let say, if I connect my new Sony KDL-26M4000 26" BRAVIA M-Series LCD Flat Panel HDTV to the MXO2 HDMI outputs, using the blue-only calibration provided for HDMI monitor calibration, you can properly set up to broadcast levels Picture, Brightness, Color, Hue, etc. thru the Sony Picture Menu, disregarding this HDMI TV factory presets???
That would be cool! This is a very nice monitor for its price but those Sony presets don't let you see what you have or let you use it for color correction as is...

Any comments?

Hello Henry

The MXO2 calibration utility exclusively calibrates the HDMI signal output coming from the MXO2. This calibration tool will ensure proper color adjustment and turn your HDTV via HDMI into a broadcast monitor.

Our recommendation : Calibrate your Sony HDTV to your visual standards and then use the MXO2's calibration tool to adjust the outputted signal.

Have a great day
