Viz Engine supports a wide range of Matrox products. This chapter provides an overview of the different Matrox video cards and dongles supported by Viz Engine, as well as providing their common installation procedures.

The Matrox X.mio series boards are used as Vizrt’s HD, SD and 4K multi-channel video- and audio I/O solution. The original Matrox X.mio is considered legacy. There are currently three generations of the Matrox X.mio boards: The Matrox X.mio2 and X.mio2 plus, and Matrox X.mio3.

  • X.mio3 was introduced in 2015 and is supported by Viz Engine 3.8 and higher.

  • X.mio2 Plus brought new features such as Matrox Control Engine (MCE) and advanced failsafe capabilities, compared to the X.mio2.

  • X.mio2 is mainly used for Virtual Studio due to low latency requirements. Since Viz Engine 3.8.2, the preferred video card for Virtual Studio solutions is the Matrox X.mio3 card.
