Ready For the Masses - Video Editing With Matrox RT2000

RT2000 Test System: Athlon 1 GHz On A KT133 Platform

Matrox did not just provide us with the RT2000. Instead we received a fully-equipped PC system that conforms with their minimum requirements. Matrox recommends a Pentium III or Athlon CPU running at 750 MHz or higher. Our system even has a Gigahertz processor under the hood. We decided to test it along with a DV camera from Sony, the DCR-PC110E. Now, let's have a look at the system.

This picture shows the two components of the RT2000 editing system: Above you can find a special Matrox VGA card, the G400 Flex 3D Edition, and underneath the RT2000 video editing card.

Two hard disks were used, one as system disk for Windows 98 and programs, the other for video data while editing.
