Every show, whether large or small, should be able to have the same high-quality, creative, video playback and compositing. Mbox Mini enables users to work in the same way as the other versions of Mbox® and to get the same exemplary results, while keeping the expense to a minimum. Just because your budget is smaller doesn’t mean you can’t create a great show

Like all members of the Mbox family, Mini includes the single-layer crossfading that makes Mbox so easy to use and fast to program. Mini focuses on providing the right tools for 2D playback and compositing, in a compact footprint, for an unbeatable price. Mini easily meets the needs of smaller shows or installations that only require 2D content manipulation, and doesn’t leave out what makes Mbox great – flexibility, ease of use, and creative composition.
- 6 playback layers for 2D content, all with single-layer crossfade
- Up to 32 outputs with a max of 6 independent output masters: levels, effect, keystone and shutter
- Basic 3D object manipulation for composition
- Flexible output resolutions (up to 3840x1200 at 60Hz) through built-in outputs, Blackmagic devices, Syphon, and NewTek NDI®
- Total output size 4.6 million pixels, 3840 x 1200 (all outputs combined)
- Playback of 4K+ content (still, movies, image sequences)
- Up to 2 video inputs from Blackmagic, AVFoundation, Syphon, or NewTek NDI® sources
- Audio playback with independent volume control on every layer
- 3600 pixels for pixel mapping

Mbox Director, a GUI control application for the Mbox media server products, can be downloaded and used for free. Director allows users to configure and control all aspects of Mbox content and playback from any Mac computer. Moving light consoles can also be used to control Mbox; fixture profiles exist for most popular consoles.
Mbox Mini can be licensed using either a USB license key or a soft-license. If you would like to purchase a USB license key for Mbox® Mini, please contact your local PRG office. If you would like to purchase a soft-license, please use one of the purchase buttons below.
The latest Mbox Mini software is compatible with macOS versions from 10.10 Yosemite to 12 Monterey, and with both Intel and Apple Silicon processor computers. While the software is not yet native to Apple Silicon processors, a universal version is in development. (Note: Older versions of the Mbox software are not compatible with newer versions of macOS or with Apple Silicon processor computers.)
If you would like to purchase an upgrade from Mini v3 to Mini v4, please DO NOT purchase a new license for Mini v4. Instead, please contact your local PRG office or email: MboxSupport@prg.com. Proof of original purchase may be required for upgrade eligibility.
Until a license is purchased, Mbox Mini can run in a demo mode with only minor limitations.
We strongly recommend testing on your computer prior to purchasing.
Purchases made by clicking the button above are for an Mbox Mini soft-license with limitations on the number of installations, and not for a USB license key. If you would prefer a USB license key that can be moved to any computer, please contact your local PRG office.
*As of July 1, 2019, the original "EWS" soft-license for Mbox Mini is no longer available for purchase (existing licenses will continue to work). A replacement soft-licensing system, "QLM", has been implemented in the Mbox Mini v4.4 release and will be the only soft-licensing system available for new purchases from July 12, 2019 forwards. Please see the note below in regard to the limitations of the soft-license.
**The Mbox Mini EWS (Mbox 3.6 - 4.3) soft-license allows the software license to be activated on two computers at the same time, but the terms of the End User License Agreement limits use of the software to only one computer at a time. The EWS license grants only two deactivations, limiting the number of times the license can be moved to a new computer (i.e. twice). Once both deactivations and both activations have been used, then a new license must be purchased for use on additional computers. EWS Purchase Terms & Conditions The Mbox Mini QLM (Mbox v4.4 and beyond) soft-license has the same two computer concurrent license limit, and the same usage limits, but allows for unlimited deactivations and subsequent reactivations.
