matrox_driver_2.2.1

You might have read our story about the odd analogue audio outputs from the MXO2. Matrox have emailed us to say that a fix is in the new firmware which is available for download now.

You have to admire their support for as they said they would, Matrox have released firmware update 2.2.1. This updates the MXO2 for Mac users enabling you to toggle down the 4dB lift in the audio outputs when using FCP. Also included is a new HDMI calibration tool.

Unique new Matrox HDMI Calibration utility that provides a wizard to guide you through the process of color calibrating your HDMI monitor so that it performs like a broadcast monitor. It walks you through a set of patterns that lets you effectively identify and compensate for five improper adjustments that may be present in your HDMI monitor – true 1:1 pixel representation, white and black level, white point, gamma response, and hue and chroma.

Note: To take full advantage of the Matrox HDMI Calibration Utility, your HDMI monitor/television must support an HDMI input resolution of 1920×1080 and 1:1 pixel mapping (aspect ratio of 1:1) on the HDMI input. On some HDMI monitors, 1:1 pixel mapping is referred to as "dot-by-dot", "Full Pixel", or "Just Scan" mode.

We haven't tested the update yet so please let us know if your audio outputs match your inputs!
