Matrox will release soon version 4.0 of its software for the Axio LE and RT.X2 family of HD and SD video editing platforms, which add support for the recently released version 4.0.1 of Adobe's Premiere Pro CS4 software. In addition, the Matrox 4.0 release will make use of the expanded memory and storage management support in the Windows Vista 64-bit operating system to improve editing performance in long-form and multi-format HD projects.

Matrox offers a range of real-time editing engines that extend the capabilities of Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 and Adobe CS4 Production Premium.

The Matrox RT.X2 platforms are designed for corporate communicators, event videographers, project studios, educational facilities, and digital filmmakers. They provide real-time productivity for DV projects and offer the flexibility for users to move to HDV, P2HD, and XDCAM EX. Matrox Axio LE is designed for HD and SD editing in broadcast and post-production facilities.

The Matrox RT.X2 4.0 release will be available for download from the Matrox website on December 22, 2008. The Matrox Axio 4.0 release will be available in February 2009.
