Matrox Mojito 4k

4K video monitoring card

Windows

Matrox Mojito 4K offers post-production professionals a fluid editing experience with uninterrupted playback, which lets them see every pixel of every 4K frame in real time for crafting breathtaking content. Matrox Mojito 4K lets you finish your productions while monitoring up to 4Kp60 for Adobe Creative Cloud software.

Monitor up to 4Kp60

True 4Kp60

Unlike professional broadcast monitors that accurately display your video in full resolutions and with proper color representation, computer monitors don’t have the ability to show every pixel, nor can the system GPU account for color space conversions. Matrox Mojito 4K provides an editing and monitoring solution that supports true 4Kp60 so you know that what you see is what you are delivering.

SD to 4K

Not every job is the same; you might shoot in 4K but need to deliver a 2K or even an HD version. Matrox Mojito 4K can monitor any finishing resolution including SD, HD, 2K, QFHD (Quad Full-HD), and 4K, so you can take on any job.

10-bit color precision

To accurately judge your video content when editing, it is best to view it in its native resolution and color space. Matrox Mojito 4K provides the highest quality video editing experience by outputting projects with 1:1 pixel accuracy and 10-bit color precision to the monitor.

Audio meters with volume amplitude

16 audio channels

Just like video deliverables change from job to job, so do your audio requirements. From multi-language projects to 7.1 surround mixes, Matrox Mojito 4K supports up to 16 channels of embedded audio. Choose from working with a simple stereo mix to surround sound and beyond for all your post-production needs.

4K editing for professionals

Editing is just one step in your post-production process. Acquiring your digital media, and adding graphics and special effects to your project are also key parts of a professional workflow. Matrox Mojito 4K provides monitoring for Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe Prelude CC, Adobe Speed Grade CC, and Adobe Encore CC through the Adobe Transmit Engine. Matrox Mojito 4K also provides artists with WYSIWYG tools for Adobe After Effects CC and Adobe Photoshop CC, which let them see their work as the audience sees it.

Turn your Thunderbolt-enabled laptop into a full-blown edit suite!

Matrox MXO2 Dock lets you enjoy the productivity benefits of your MXO2 and superior comfort of an affordable full-size HDMI display to complement your laptop display. In addition, it lets you get the most from your Thunderbolt port by letting you also add a full size keyboard, a mouse, an Ethernet network, USB 3.0 storage, and many other peripherals using a single cable.

What to Look for in an H.264 Video Encoder Today’s video encoders are mostly similar and mostly good, said Robert Reinhardt at Streaming Media East. Still, there are a few features to seek out.

At the recent Streaming Media East conference in New York City, encoding expert Robert Reinhardt (founder of VideoRx.com) told attendees what to look for when buying an H.264 encoder.

“There’s effectively three qualities that I think anyone would look for in a good encoder: quality, speed, and cost,” Reinhardt said. “All three of these factors all working together, I feel, probably make up 90 percent of the decision-making that goes into any encoding workflow, and I think most of us really care about the first one that I put up there, which is quality.”

While video quality is central, Reinhardt cautioned against trying to have it all.

“Typically, you’re probably only going to get two of these pieces of the pie way more than the third,” Reinhardt said.

The good news is that every encoder can handle basic tasks pretty well nowadays. The decision, then, rests with smaller features. Once the basics are covered, what next? Codec options, for one thing.

“Beyond that, what do I look for in an H.264 encoder? I’m going to look for multiple H.264 codec options,” Reinhardt said. “I only really care about one these days — that’s x264. I’m not saying that Main Concept isn’t any good, but Main Concept just seems to have a certain set of options, x264 has others. When it comes to adaptive streaming, you have much finer control in x264.”

CatDV Connects with Avid

CreativeCOW presents CatDV Connects with Avid -- AVID Editorial


Santa Monica California USA©2013 CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.

Square Box Systems’ has just unveiled a CatDV asset management system for integration with Avid nonlinear editors. Pegasus is a premium CatDV client that is based on the CatDV Enterprise product and, in addition to integration with Avid Media Composer, also offers metadata support for RED Epic. With this addition, CatDV now offers support for Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere and Apple Final Cut Pro.

Square Box Systems‘ CatDV is an asset management system with production capabilities that has had a deep impact in numerous industries, including media and entertainment. “It’s aimed at people who have a large volume of digital media, which is relevant to many industries,” explains Square Box CEO Dave Clack. “It helps teams to organize and search that media and communicate among their divisions. There’s an insatiable demand for media and more and more large media, and to be able to find it offline and online is vital. So we help people to find the media and thus save money and time.”

Now, Square Box has unveiled a CatDV product that integrates with Avid Media Composer. Pegasus, a premium CatDV client that builds on the foundation of CatDV Enterprise and includes built in support for MXF and archiving, now includes a new solution for integration with Avid Media Composer. Pegasus also includes metadata support for RED Epic files and can co-exist with CatDV Enterprise clients and is available as a stand-alone product.

“This now provides metadata integration between CatDV and Media Composer,” says Clack. “A producer can put together a rough cut together in CatDV and then mark up the data about what they like in the shot and communicate that directly into the editor. All the logging data is stored in CatDV and it can be shared seamlessly with the editing program. So it’s a collaboration tool between the edit team and the creative team.”

“We’re pitching CatDV Pegasus at the premium end of the market,” he continues. “We expect more sophisticated customers might have a niche environment of different editing stations to pick it up. It’s an extension to the existing customers we have, but it’s certainly a more high-end solution.”

Pegasus now enables a “round trip” workflow of media and metadata between CatDV and Avid Media Composer and a complete Avid workflow solution within CatDV. Sequences, Master Clips and Subclips can be exported to Avid Media Composer from CatDV.

The CatDV AAF Tool supports import of Avid created sequences, Master Clips and Subclips. Supported media is relinked within Avid Media Composer. CatDV Pegasus users can save time and create efficiencies by logging clips and sequences outside of the Avid edit suite and preparing shot lists with added metadata off site. Media can be ingested and transcoded using the CatDV Worker and then Pegasus can send the clips to Avid.

The workflow will allow users to export master clips, subclips and sequences created in Avid Media Composer to CatDV and import supported media and metadata to CatDV; the Avid MXF media is relinked and metadata available to all CatDV users. Clips and sequences can be simply dragged into Avid by selecting the AAF Tool icon and dropping onto any open Avid bin.


Clips and sequences can be simply dragged into Avid by selecting the AAF Tool icon and dropping onto any open Avid bin.

Clack notes how this workflow already exists for Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere. “Our roots were the Apple side of the community and when Apple changed, we were keen to have two horses in the race,” he says. “For customers, the decision about what NLE or hardware to buy isn’t such a risky decision. With our open communication between everything in the middle, they’ll never lose data and have an expensive mistake on their hands.”

Pegasus has been in beta testing since the beginning of 2013 and is now shipping

Clack describes CatDV’s key features as “power, simplicity, flexibility, paired with reasonable cost.” He adds, “It can fit with your existing workflow and provides round-trip metadata management with a full array of assets, formats, NLEs, storage systems, database systems, operating systems and archiving systems. With CatDV, you can automate many tasks in a workflow and integrate with a wide variety of hardware and software. At the same time, the desktop interface is straightforward; the complexity of the product is hidden from the user. CatDV is also cost effective. The user can choose from a standalone and single user clients to systems that support hundreds of users.”

CatDV users include such media-rich enterprises as CNN, BBC, NBC Universal, CBS Television Networks, as well as GoPro, Intel Corporation, NFL Films, Iron Mountain and dozens of museums, worship clients, hotels and other organizations that deal with media.

Pegasus has been in beta testing since the beginning of 2013 and is now shipping.

As the creation of rich media continues to explode in the media and entertainment space, the Achilles heel is the ability to easily organize and access assets. Square Box offers solutions that now span the range of NLEs, making them more powerful than ever for professionals within our industry.
