Matrox Mojito 4K is a quad 3G-SDI, 4K video card for use with Adobe Creative Cloud professional video editing tools on Windows® platforms. It provides 10-bit H.264 intra-frame rendering and enables realtime monitoring and output of video footage at resolutions up to 4096x2160 and at frame rates up to 60 fps (4K@60fps) making it ideal for full-res 2K, QFHD and 4K workflows.
Matrox MXO2 and Mojito MAX I/O products provide broadcast-quality video and audio input, output and monitoring to enable traditional tape-based workflows including deck control for frame-accurate batch capture and print-to-tape. They are also the only I/O solutions on the market that let users encode H.264 files for delivery to the web, iPad® and iPhone® up to five times faster than software alone without sacrificing quality. In addition, MXO2 devices provide cross-platform Mac® and Windows support and are still the only solutions that connect anywhere, Mac and PC, via Thunderbolt™, PCIe® or ExpressCard/34®—with the same versatile unit.
