The strongest first impression of the Matrox RT.X2
is the realtime HD preview to flat panel LCD monitor via the RT.X2Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s DVI output. If your LCD panel has sufficient resolution, RT.X2 can provide pixel-to-pixel mapping up to 1920x1200. Preview is realtime during color correction and chroma keying, allowing much more accurate fine-tuning than possible through Adobe Premiere ProÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s
own preview window. If lip sync becomes an issue, the preview could be invaluable. You can access many of MatroxÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s effects in After Effects, with real time preview to your preview monitor. Sweet!
In addition to preview in Premiere Pro, you also get realtime preview in other graphics programs, including Photoshop, After Effects, and EncoreÃ¢â‚¬â€all obviously valuable when creating content for television display. With broadcast HD capable monitors easily costing in the thousands, HD preview alone could be worth the price of the RT.X2. read more...
