This may be a dumb question, but I've got to ask......
I have Media 100 HDe 12.7.1 - I have the Kona LHe card with 5.1 NDD driver (OSX 10.5.7, QT 7.6.2). If I take out the Kona board, do I still have Media 100 as software, or are they tied together? I am considering a Matrox MXO2 in place of the Kona as I like the portability factor between laptop and desktops, and the HDMI I/O. I also want to hold off updating M100 until the next release (v 14?). Thank you!

[CJ MacPherson] "If I take out the Kona board, do I still have Media 100 as software, or are they tied together?"

Currently not. Right now the encryption code of the software is tied to the board. This way you currently can move the board to a new CPU and continue working with your encryption code.

With V14 (or Media 100 Suite, as it is named as far as I understand), the software will be locked to a CPU, so that you will be flexible with the hardware (or with using the software without hardware) then. License the software to a machine, and use it with any hardware you want. The advantage is that you of course then can (e.g. on a Laptop) decide if you want to work with hardware (in the office) or without (on the road). But it gets more complicated to move the software license to a new machineā€¦

Guess you cannot have a perfect solutionā€¦

CJ,

I think Floh's being a bit conservative in his answer 'cause he doesn't want to step out of bounds and speak directly for the company.

You should definitely give our Sales department a call at 800-922-3220. They can explain to you exactly how your situation will work under Media 100 Suite.

Thank you both. I have M100 & Premiere Pro CS4 on the Mac Pro that I use. Then we have Avid and Final Cut on two other Macs, and Avid and Final Cut on a powerbook (for on the road). It would be convenient to have the Matrox to use on all Macs. I will get in touch with sales.
