Marvel G200-TV Video Card Upgrade

Boot Camp feature for Monday, February 8, 1999

If you shoot home videos, edit them on your home PC. I'm Fred Fishkin with Bootcamp, a report on computers and technology. There are some great ways to use your computer to edit videos, add titles and effects, mix sound and save them back onto tape. We'll be talking about Sony's line of digital editing PCs in a future segment. ATI will be coming out soon with a new version of its All in Wonder Pro video card. And a company called Matrox has created a top notch card called the Marvel G200-TV. The great 2D and 3D graphics, product manager Razid Samdjy says, are just the start...

"For example, there's the TV viewing on your PC or TV recording on your PC. We also have output to TV for games, presentations, things like that."

The big screen is great for games. And then there's the video input capability that lets you video conference or bring in those videos for editing. The image quality is great and the bundled software is easy to use...

"We bundled Avid Cinema application. And Cinema is really meant for the consumer who has no clue as to what to do with video."

Better still the video connections are through an external box. You don't have to reach around behind the PC. You can find more information at matrox.com.
