NAB Show Blog: VIdeo Interview – Matrox MXO 2

Thanks to Richard Harrington over at RHED Pixel for producing this:

Thanks VodPod!

Looks like it would fit in my Swiss Army backpack along with my 17″ MacBook Pro just nicely. Guess I’ll have to send in that RFP for the documentary on Amazonian Jungle Babes WIFV wants to produce, see if that battery power feature is all it’s cracked up to be.

Replacement MXO Arrives…

As you may or not know from my previous posts, I ordered a Matrox MXO from B&H but it had hardware issues. While this was seriously frustrating at the time, Matrox customer support was incredibly efficient with troubleshooting the issue and expediting a replacement unit.

Received the replacement unit today but after a long day of ups and downs, I’ll plan to unbox and install tomorrow. While I had initial knee-jerk regrets from purchasing the Matrox MXO only to have the Matrox MXO 2 drop yesterday at NAB, I’m pretty sure I’m over it.

Rory found out from the Matrox Booth that the MXO 2 won’t ship until July. And I considered the additional 500 bucks. And, I can still capture PS3 in game footage via component. And, I can still output to my 55″ Sony SXRD if I really want to. I think. But I don’t really want to.

So <taking a deep breath in through the nose and out through the mouth> welcome home Replacement Matrox MXO! I promise to love you unconditionally, just like I did with your predecessor. Until he broke. The poor, helpless bastard.

Matrox MXO 2 Droppage

I’ve already blogged about this at the NAB Show Blog, so follow the link for the details. Or listen to me bitch and moan that I just bought an MXO. I’ve already sent an email to Customer Service voicing my plight:

Ummm, guys…

http://www.matrox.com/video/en/products/mxo2/

If I knew the MXO 2 was going to drop I would have said I’d pay the extra money to upgrade. Hopefully you’re all in Vegas living it up at NAB and haven’t had the chance to ship my replacement yet.

Please let me know how we do this.

Best Regards,

Peter

Yeah, I hope there is an upgrade path. This thing looks so freakin’ awesome.
