I use my cMP as a live video switcher As many of us (force) discover, our machines doesn't have an H264 encoder chip, so, all this related tasks are performed by the processor. Some people found in the Matrox HDcompress card the solution for this issue. In my case, with the ****** matrox support, it is probably that my OSX and software doesn't have it. And, I have not free pci slots. It is there some other reliable solution? a consumer i7 processor will do the job?
