Matrox Updates RTMac Beta Drivers for OS X

Preview Release 4 gets performance optimizations By Dave Nagel
Matrox has released another update to its beta drivers for the RTMac for Mac OS X. The RTMac is a video capture and editing system designed to work with Apple's Final Cut Pro. The new version of the drivers offers general optimizations and is available now as a free download.

The Matrox RTMac is a combination video capture system (PCI card with breakout box) and graphics accelerator, providing support for a second Mac monitor on the capture card. Matrox launched its initial set of beta drivers for Mac OS X back in June owing to demand from users, though there were still some known issues with the software. The new version improves A/V sync in the Viewer and Canvas windows and offer overall performance optimizations. There are still some known limitations to the software, posted on the Matrox RTMac support forum.

The current Preview Release 4 for Mac OS X is a release candidate, and Matrox is looking for additional feedback prior to posting a full release. For more information or to download the drivers, visit
