New multi-display upgrade supporting dual-link digital-in and triple digital-out

Montreal, Canada, March 7th, 2007 – Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, unveils the TripleHead2Go Digital Edition, the latest addition to the Matrox line of Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXM) featuring digital output support for a stretched desktop of up to 3840x1024 (triple 1280 x 1024)1 across three screens. The all-encompassing TripleHead2Go Digital Edition offers a truly digital-to-digital data path by connecting to the dual-link DVI output of a compatible notebook, desktop or workstation to three digital monitors—optimizing the connection between your system, graphics card and panel.

"Creative professionals looking to adopt a triple-DVI monitor setup will be delighted about the TripleHead2Go Digital Edition," says Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "This GXM generates an extended workspace across three displays to house any application, while simultaneously taking advantage of all the benefits of digital flat panel technology."

The new TripleHead2Go Digital Edition is designed to meet the growing needs of creative professionals working in areas of Digital Content Creation & Animation and Digital Audio Editing. The Surround Design functionality—ability to work with three screens—provided by this small device enables users to examine multiple windows of a design or project and simultaneously view important information that needs to be accessed quickly. These professionals will reap the benefits of multi-display computing on their notebooks or workstations while experiencing an increased level in productivity. In addition, users of the TripleHead2Go Digital Edition can operate in DualHead® mode with a combined resolution of 3840x1200 (dual 1920x1200)1 by connecting their system to the dual-link digital input.

Graphics eXpansion Modules
Matrox Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXM) are small external boxes that are simple to setup—there is no need to open the computer to insert additional parts into it. The operating system detects the GXM as an ultra-widescreen monitor which is then split into two or more standard resolutions compatible with the attached displays, all the while harnessing the graphics hardware already present in the system for all 2D, 3D, and video acceleration.
