Designed for the professional event / corporate videographer who demands power, performance and features with rock solid stability, the MegaRex includes the DVRex-M1 with RexRT, breakout box for easy hookup, extra transitions and effects with Canopus Xplode card, Adobe Premiere 5.1, RexEdit 2.7, Rex Navigator, a software bonus pack (Adorage, 3D Impact and SmartSound) plus a KickStart CD and all the cables you need.
RexRT Card and Software:
The RexRT card sits next to the DVRex-M1 in its own PCI slot and connects to it using the top digital video bus. The RexRT hardware passes 4:2:2 digital video data directly to the DVRex-M1 bypassing the PCI bus. This decreases the PCI bus loading and enables large amounts of uncompressed video to be passed directly to the DVRex-M1.
The RexRT adds realtime power to the DVRexM1 card. But unlike other systems, RexRT offers more than simple real-time transitions and static titles. RexRT offers real-time moving titles, real-time luma keying, real-time complex transitions, real-time color correction, real-time colorization and posterization and real-time picture-in-picture effects. In addition to real-time video tools, RexRT also offers a wide variety of audio tools including high and low pass filtering, a parametric and graphic equalizer, and, reverb and delay. With RexRT waiting for renders is a thing of the past.
The RT software works closely with Pentium III processors to calculate real-time editing functions. This offers editing system performance scalability as CPU performance increases. The main benefit is that you will never be out of date with the RT card. As you upgrade to faster more powerful CPUs, RT will be upgraded automatically.

Xplode 3-D Graphics Card:
An affordable 3D DVE solution, Xplode is a hardware-based 3D effects engine and transition package that provides editors with a near real-time alternative to more expensive real-time DVEs. Xplode includes a sophisticated collection of over two hundred transitions including 60 3D effects like page peels, mosaic, picture-in-picture; titling effects and filters, double doors, spinning cubes and even environment effects like haze and lighting. You can also customize transitions by easily adjusting the parameters of each effect and save the settings for use in future projects (giving you a virtually unlimited reserve of customized effects).With Xplode, Canopus also brings award-winning graphics technology to DV editing. A 128-bit graphic display card with 32MB on-board RAM, Xplode features
video overlay in high-resolutionup to 1600 x 1200 at 32 bpp. (You must replace your existing display card).
- Complex 3D transitions requiring advanced geometry calculations are rendered up to 20 times faster.
- Incorporates DV and M-JPEG codecs so it can be used in a network environment where you can have many people working on the same footage, without buying multiple hardware codec products.
- Though optimized for use with RexEdit and RexRT, Xplode also significantly enhances the productivity of of Adobe Premier.
- 3D effects includes: Tumble, Spin and Rotate, Spinning/Flipping Objects, Random particles, Rolling haze, Picture-in-picture, Explosion, Multiple doors, Tiling, Cubic objects, Fly Away, Zoom
