[prMac.com] Amsterdam, Netherlands - Boinx Software today announced that the popular I/O devices Matrox MXO and MXO2 are now certified to provide input/output, monitoring, and format conversion for BoinxTV. This offers video producers an affordable and highly portable solution for creating professional TV shows, delivering an SDI signal in broadcast-quality.
"With the Matrox products MXO and MXO2 it is easy and cost-effective to integrate BoinxTV into an SDI workflow," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "Broadcasters now can establish a live feedback channel to their audience easily. They have the chance to try out new things like Skype integration or displaying Twitter feeds in their programming on a tight budget."
"The combination of Matrox products with BoinxTV opens new possibilities for video production," said Wayne Andrews, senior product manager at Matrox. "Users now have the flexibility to work on laptops as well as desktop systems to deliver high-quality programming."
Using the MXO with BoinxTV:
The Matrox MXO enables BoinxTV to output an SDI signal for easy integration into existing workflows. With its unique and versatile Layers which can also be easily modified to customer specifications, BoinxTV provides a rich tool set for broadcasters to quickly and inexpensively implement visualisation of data like RSS feeds (for example Twitter) or databases (like stock market information).
Using the MXO2 with BoinxTV:
The Matrox MXO2 can also be used to output video in a variety of formats. Alternatively, it also supports video input through SDI, HDMI, Component, CVBS and S-Video. This enables BoinxTV to use an SDI signal as an input and perform its graphical magic on it before streaming live to the internet, for example. Another use case for the Matrox MXO2 is the input of low-latency analog or HDMI video input. This is especially useful if the video is projected on a stage where low-latency is required. The MXO2 also supports hardware based downscaling of HD signals so that 1080p signals can be used in 720p or NTSC/PAL projects without putting extra downscaling load on the software. Matrox MXO2 will be demonstrated at IBC 2009 (Amsterdam, September 11-15) on stand 7.B29.
Mobile TV Studio Solution:
Connected to a MacBook Pro with BoinxTV installed, both Matrox devices provide a highly versatile portable broadcast solution even "on the go".
