Excerpt: I use the box in my editing setup to display video on a CRT HD monitor and also use it to speed up encoding of H.264. I've had it for the better part of a year and everything works perfectly. The H.264 encoding is top-notch quality.
Excerpt: I liked the first one on my CS5 workstation so much that I bought another one later in 2013 for my CS6 workstation. Both still work great. There are several things I find that make the Matrox MX02 mini very useful: 1. Consumer TV calibration.

Pros: Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Versatile

Excerpt: I am editing with Avid Media Composer 5.5.3. The Matrox Mini feeds my video monitor from Avid and also Photoshop. It is great to preview a Photoshop file on a video monitor. Matrox has great phone support that made setup a breeze.
Excerpt: The only problem I have is with Matrox and not this product. Driver installation has always been a problem with them. If you have issues during the setup process, do not waste time trying to solve it. Instead call tech support since a lot of the issues are not documented on their site.
