Andrew and Enzo unbox and discuss the MadVR Envy Extreme Video Processor.

This is a high end extremely (as the name would suggest) powerful video processor capable of many different functions:

Oh! …..Something we forgot to mention! The firmware updates are done entirely ON LINE, no RS232 or USB and Baud rates. And, it literally takes seconds …..NICE !
