Little Frog in High Def by Shane Ross

Earlier when I gave my first impressions of the MXO2, I made these first impressions with a BETA version of the software. I had the 1.2 drivers but they didn't do all that I needed. I needed to upscale SD to HD. I thought there was something that I overlooked. The website said that the MXO2 did upscaling of SD to HD...but it did it on OUTPUT, not injest. I didn't know this, I was digging around looking for that option...couldn't find it. So having a pal at Matrox I asked "hey, I need the MXO2 to do this, can you help me figure it out?" He did by sending me beta drivers that had the option I wanted.

Well guess what? These drivers will be coming out VERY soon. Matrox is putting on final touches and prepping them for release. I hope I get this done before they have them out there.

Here are the new features you can look forward to with these new drivers.

This is what I was talking about...scaling on CAPTURE. The Matrox MXO2 now has a checkbox in the AV INPUT tab of the Matrox Control Panel called SCALING. If you have an SD source, all you need to do is check that box, choose SD as your source (then there is an aspect ratio box too, options for 4:3 and 16:9 source input), and then you are done in the MXO control panel. That simple.
