Matrox CompressHD Provides Faster Than Realtime H264 Compression

Posted June 5, 2009 at 10:15pm by iClarified
The new Matrox CompressHD accelerator card which provides faster than realtime H.264 HD file creation for Mac is now shipping.

Professional content creators have discovered that H.264 compression technology delivers a high-quality video experience at low bit rates for mobile devices, the web, and Blu-ray discs; but they have had to constantly make compromises, trading off quality for encoding speed, or paying a high price for equipment that can give them both. Matrox CompressHD removes all the hurdles, providing incredible encoding speed and quality at the price of $495 US.

Matrox CompressHD is the first implementation of Matrox MAX technology for faster than realtime H.264 file creation. Matrox MAX technology uses a dedicated hardware processor to accelerate the creation of H.264 files for resolutions ranging from iPod to HD. By using specialized hardware acceleration, jobs are finished with amazing speed and system resources are liberated for other tasks. Matrox CompressHD works in systems with or without a video I/O device. Ease of use is ensured through direct integration with Apple Compressor on the Mac. As an added benefit, the Matrox MAX technology allows direct export to higher-quality H.264 Blu-ray compliant files from Compressor.

The PC drivers are scheduled for July and will be available free of charge to all registered Matrox CompressHD owners.
