News: Matrox to Support Next Major Updates of Adobe Professional Video Editing Tools
Matrox Editing Cards and Devices will be Tightly Integrated with the Next Major Updates of Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Adobe After Effects CC for Rock-Solid Workflows from SD to 4K
(Montreal, Canada--April 3, 2014) Matrox® Video today announced support for the upcoming release of Adobe® professional video editing tools, including Adobe Premiere® Pro CC and Adobe Mercury Transmit for Adobe After Effects® CC, with the Matrox Mojito™ 4K monitoring card, the Matrox MXO2™ family of I/O devices and the Matrox Mojito MAX™ I/O card. WYSIWYG support for Adobe Photoshop® CC will also be provided.
Matrox Mojito 4K is a quad 3G-SDI, 4K video card for use with Adobe Creative Cloud™ professional video editing tools on Windows®platforms. It provides 10-bit H.264 intra-frame rendering and enables realtime monitoring and output of video footage at resolutions up to 4096x2160 and at frame rates up to 60 fps (4K@60fps) making it ideal for full-res 2K, QFHD and 4K workflows.
Matrox MXO2 and Mojito MAX I/O products provide broadcast-quality video and audio input, output and monitoring to enable traditional tape-based workflows including deck control for frame-accurate batch capture and print-to-tape. They are also the only I/O solutions on the market that let users encode H.264 files for delivery to the web, iPad® and iPhone® up to five times faster than software alone without sacrificing quality. In addition, MXO2 devices provide cross-platform Mac® and Windows support and are still the only solutions that connect anywhere, Mac and PC, via Thunderbolt™, PCIe® or ExpressCard/34®—with the same versatile unit.
“Our move to Creative Cloud has enabled us to accelerate the delivery of new features for Adobe video apps. Our customers want the very best tools available to them, and to work efficiently while producing amazing results,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “Matrox has responded to this challenge. Their editing products offer our customers reliable and high-quality video options, which greatly enhance video artists’ overall experience.”
"Matrox Mojito 4K is an excellent complement to high frame rate (HFR) workflows beyond HD," said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing at Matrox “Users of Sony F5 and F55 cameras can take advantage of XAVC optimizations by Matrox and Adobe for 4K monitoring, editing, rendering, and delivery.”
Matrox I/0 products will be featured at the 2014 NAB Show (Las Vegas, April 7-10, booth SL5019).
