Matrox MAX is a unique technology that implements faster than realtime H.264 encoding for resolutions ranging from iPod to HD.
It uses a dedicated hardware processor to accelerate the creation of H.264 files for Blu-ray, the web, and mobile devices. By using specialized hardware acceleration, jobs are finished with amazing speed and system resources are liberated for other tasks.
Quality and flexibility are ensured through direct integration with professional applications such as Apple Compressor on the Mac and Adobe Media Encoder on the PC. As an added benefit, the Matrox MAX technology allows direct export to higher-quality H.264 Blu-ray compliant files from Compressor.
Matrox CompressHD is the first implementation of Matrox MAX technology in an H.264 accelerator card.
