Important Note for Matrox Owners
Matrox's drivers and Adobe Premiere plug-in packages (eg MXTools) tend to work with a single version of Premiere. Whilst there may be several Matrox driver versions that all support the same version of Premiere, new versions of Premiere often require a new version of the Matrox drivers. Equally, the drivers are not normally backwardly compatible, so a new driver release from Matrox will typically not work with an earlier version of Premiere.
The Matrox Download page includes information on which Adobe version is supported by which Matrox version.
| Matrox MXO family -
The range of MXO I/O boxes are designed to work with Final Cut on the
Mac (both Macbooks and MacPro), Premiere CS4/5 on the PC, and in the case of
the Mini it can also be used for output monitoring within Avid Media Composer v5.
In all cases they serve as a portable breakout box with high quality analogue and digital video outputs. The MXO2 includes inputs as well as outputs and the range includes the following connection options:-
Matrox MAX - The MAX hardware is a faster-than-realtime H264 MPEG4 video encoder which is available as a PCI-Ex card (called CompressHD), or as a factory-fitted option to the MXO2 I/O boxes. Works alongside RTX2 with v4.2 drivers.

RTX & RT cards have been discontinued, although we can still sometimes offer support
for repairing and reconfiguring such systems.
