Matrox Graphics Introduces Multi-Display DualHead2Go Digital Edition

Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, announces the DualHead2Go Digital Edition featuring digital outputs. The latest addition to the Graphics eXpansion Module (GXM) line, this external multi-display upgrade device connects to the VGA output of compatible notebook or desktop computers and, through patent pending technology, uniquely expands the desktop across two digital displays. DualHead2Go Digital Edition also enables support for high resolution panels, offering a stretched desktop of up to 3840×1200 (or dual 1920×1200(1)) across two displays.

“Dual monitors are widely used by professionals in CAD, GIS, dispatch, security, process control, and by individuals who simply require a larger desktop area to manage abundant amounts of visual data,” says Sam Recine, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “The DualHead2Go Digital Edition delivers the ultimate dual-monitor setup for notebook and desktop users. Moreover, since it is an external upgrade, it is ideal for adding an extra display to a closed, already validated, mission-critical system or to computers with no available expansion slots.”

DualHead2Go Digital Edition is the ideal solution for CAD, GIS, dispatch, security, and process control users looking for a simple and cost effective solution to quickly increase their productivity. The multi-display configuration delivered by DualHead2Go Digital Edition permits working with multiple full-screen documents or applications simultaneously— eliminating the need to constantly open, close or minimize applications. In addition, Matrox PowerDesk SE(2) desktop management software allows users the flexibility to select a wider range of resolutions, including support for both widescreen and standard aspect ratios. With DualHead2Go Digital Edition you can see more, do more and be more productive.

Matrox Graphics eXpansion Modules are small external boxes that are simple to setup—there is no need to open the computer to insert additional parts. 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.

System compatibility
DualHead2Go Digital Edition includes support for Microsoft Windows Vista(TM), Windows(R) XP, Windows(R) 2000, Windows(R) XP-64 bit operating systems and MAC OSX. It is also compatible with many professional desktops and notebooks. A compatibility list is posted on the Matrox website.
