Matrox supports ProRes19 April 2010
Support for the Apple ProRes codec is now integrated into DSX Developer Products, allowing manufacturers of PC-based ingest/playout servers, character generators, broadcast graphics systems, and transcoding systems to easily support workflows that rely on Final Cut Pro.
The first equipment suppliers to implement support for the ProRes codec using the Matrox DSX platform are EditShare and Vizrt.
“We are extremely excited to be one of the first Matrox OEM customers to implement ProRes support. This new functionality will let Final Cut Pro workgroups tap into the advanced ingest/playout capabilities of Geevs like never before,” said James Richings, managing director, EditShare EMEA. “It’s a development that fits beautifully into our fundamental philosophy of collaborative workflows.”
“Matrox support for the Apple ProRes codec offered Vizrt a quick and simple way to add value to our product line,” said Christian Huber, executive VP IT and logistics, Vizrt. “We are now able to give our broadcast customers a more open and versatile solution, making their workflow more efficient and the Vizrt proposition even more compelling.”
“For over 30 years Matrox has been supplying the hardware and software tools that keep broadcast equipment manufacturers at the forefront of emerging video markets,” said Alberto Cieri, senior director of sales and marketing, Matrox. “Final Cut Pro is ubiquitous in broadcast facilities worldwide, and we are offering the enabling technology our partners require to provide smooth workflow solutions to their customers.”
