Matrox has launched the latest iteration of its RT real-time video editing hardware for Windows, the RT.X2, and announced a DVI-pro video conversion device for monitoring within Final Cut Studio and Adobe After Effects on the Mac.

The RT.X2 (below) is the first real-time video editing hardware from Matrox to support acceleration of HDV video. It supports native HDV and MPEG-2 4:2:2 I-frame HD editing, and DV, DVCAM, DVCPRO and MPEG-2 4:2:2 I-frame SD editing. HD and SD codecs can be mixed on the timeline in realtime.

The board ships with real-time Matrox Flex CPU effects – including colour correction, speed changes, chroma and luma keying. It also supports real-time and accelerated Flex GPU effects including 2D and 3D DVEs, blur, glow, soft focus and shine.

Other real-time effects include mixed-format multicam and hardware-based downscaling for SD output from an HD timeline. The board offers HD/SD component, composite and S-Video I/O – plus an independent DVI output so that a relatively inexpensive LCD display can be used for monitoring.

RT.X2 costs £1,174 plus VAT, and includes a copy of Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0, and ships with WYSIWYG plug-ins for After Effects, Photoshop, Combustions, 3ds Max, Fusion and LightWave 3D.
