About Matrox CompressHD for the Mac

Matrox CompressHD is the first implementation of Matrox MAX technology in an amazingly affordable H.264 accelerator card. It works in systems with or without a video I/O device and extends the life of current systems, giving users the power to deliver today’s premium H.264 formats faster than ever. It’s a low profile, half-length PCIe x1 card that fits into Mac Pros and Intel-based Apple Xserve systems


Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.
