Safe Harbor's ALL NEW, completely redesigned RIPTIDE system maximizes the performance of Adobe's new Creative Cloud 2014 software suite and Matrox MXO2 hardware.


SDI/HDMI/analog HD/SD video and complete audio I/O with direct 5.1 surround sound monitoring

Matrox MXO2 gives you broadcast-quality input and output for your favorite editing app plus a variety of productivity tools in a convenient, portable breakout box.

Get the most from your favorite apps

Matrox MXO2 amplifies your productivity with all the industry’s leading editing and content creation software for Mac and PC, as well as a wide variety of streaming, live production, and broadcast applications.


All the I/Os you need

Matrox MXO2 gives you a full range of professional audio and video inputs and outputs, genlock, and RS-422 machine control – right on the box. Direct 5.1 surround sound monitoring is supported on the RCA outputs and both 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound monitoring are supported on the HDMI output. No additional breakout cable is required.

Realtime hardware up/down/cross conversion for capture, monitoring, and output

Matrox MXO2 products and Mojito MAX let you deliver in any format your clients demand. The 10-bit hardware scaling provides high-quality mastering.

HD to SD downscaling

Realtime HD to SD downscaling is performed with proper conversion of the HD color space to the SD color space. Proper aspect ratio conversion to anamorphic and letterbox are supported on Mac and PC. Center-cut is supported on the Mac. You can monitor or record an SD master of your HD project in real time.

SD to HD upscaling

Realtime SD to HD upscaling is perfomed with proper conversion of the SD color space to the HD color space. Footage with a 4:3 aspect ration will be "pillarboxed", 16:9 SD footage will be scaled to full screen.

Cross conversion

Realtime cross conversion from 720 to 1080 and 1080 to 720 is supported. Realtime frame rate conversion is also supported with 2:3:2:3 and 2:3:3:2 cadences. This feature is useful if, for example, your source material is recorded at a different frame rate or resolution than the delivery format your client requires. It also facilitates monitoring when, for example, you need to work with 23.98 fps footage but your monitor does not support that frame rate. You can use the realtime frame rate conversion feature to view your project at 29.97 fps. Conversion from 23.98 fps to 25 fps is handled by your editing application and the host.

Inexpensive HD monitoring

Matrox MXO2 products and Mojito MAX turn your HDMI monitor into a true-color video display you can trust, even for color grading. They are packed with features that make them the ideal monitoring solutions for Adobe Creative Suite, Apple Final Cut Studio, and Avid Media Composer. Thanks to the Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility, you won't need to buy expensive HD monitoring equipment. It lets an HDMI monitor perform like a broadcast HD/SD monitor with 10-bit 4:2:2 color precision.

Broadcast monitors are typically adjusted to meet ITU-R Recommendation BT.709 (also known as Rec 709), the broadcast industry standard for color representation. HDMI displays are typically not adjusted to meet this specification and they are likely to introduce additional signal processing errors that the viewer might not be aware of. The Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility provides a wizard that walks you through a set of patterns that lets you effectively identify and compensate for five improper adjustments that may be present in your HDMI monitor. The goal is to meet the Rec 709 specification as closely as possible, given the characteristics of your particular monitor.

True 1:1 pixel representation

To accurately judge your video content, it is best to view it at its native resolution. However, some HDMI monitors scale the input signal by default. The Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility lets you easily identify if this is the case. Two of the five verifications that you can do with the Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility (gamma response and hue/chroma) require 1:1 pixel mapping.

White and black levels

The white level is the intensity at which the monitor will display the whitest pixel. The black level is the intensity at which a monitor will display a black pixel. The Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility lets you use the monitor's controls and the Matrox device's hardware controls to get the grey ramp to show the blackest patch (black) and the whitest patch (white) while still being able to see the different patches. Performing these adjustments ensures that the widest possible color gamut is available to the Matrox device.

White point

The white point is the color of the white reference for a particular display. Rec 709 specifies 6500K as that reference which is equivalent to the color of a white sheet of paper when seen outdoors at noon when the sky is overcast. Using an iterative process, the Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility lets you establish your monitor's 6500K white point under your particular viewing conditions.

Gamma response

The input to output response of a broadcast video monitor is a non-linear power function called the gamma response. The Rec 709 specification defines the gamma response expected of broadcast monitors. The Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility characterizes how your particular HDMI monitor's gamma response deviates from that defined by Rec 709 and creates a set of gamma correction curves (compensation equations). These corrections are then applied to the HDMI signal so that the colors displayed on the monitor will match the Rec 709 specification. Your HDMI monitor must support 1:1 pixel mapping to use this feature of the Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility.

Hue and chroma

The Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility includes patterns that let you ensure that the intensity of the primary and secondary colors are accurate. External references such as a blue-only button or a blue gel filter are not required, provided your HDMI monitor supports 1:1 pixel mapping.


Create Without Boundaries

Creative professionals using faster and more intuitive workflows can deliver high-quality productions to demanding clients by taking full advantage of the NVIDIA Quadro GPU acceleration available throughout Adobe CC. Visual effects that used to render a few frames per second now run in real-time. Hours spent producing motion graphics can now be done in minutes. Professional color grading is more accessible than ever before with SpeedGrade and the integrated Lumetri Deep Color Engine in Premiere Pro CC.

Adobe Premiere® Pro CC
The powerful Adobe Mercury Playback Engine, co-developed by Adobe and NVIDIA, leverages NVIDIA GPUs and CUDA® technology to deliver real-time interactivity and up to 18x¹ faster final export rendering on more than 40 powerful visual effects. Expanded support for multiple GPUs multiplies this performance potential. Premiere Pro also fully supports NVIDIA Quadro® SDI Output cards with an Adobe Mercury Transmit Plugin.

Adobe After Effects® CC
Take advantage of the powerful 3D ray-traced renderer in After Effects to simplify and accelerate the motion graphics workflow, so you can create extruded 3D text and shapes with realistic ray-traced features. NVIDIA GPUs enable acceleration of up to 23x¹ faster than a CPU or competitive GPU.

Adobe SpeedGrade CC
SpeedGrade is accelerated by NVIDIA GPUs for real-time professional color grading performance. And with the new Lumetri Deep Color Engine integration, SpeedGrade color grades and looks are easily enabled directly within Premiere Pro.

Adobe Photoshop® CC
The GPU-accelerated Mercury Graphics Engine delivers near-instant results in Photoshop for fluid editing, compositing, and image transformation when used with NVIDIA GPUs. Key tools improved with the GPU include Blurs, Liquify, Adaptive Wide Angle, Lighting Effects, Scrubby Zoom, and more than 20 others.
