Learning to love the Matrox TripleHead2Go

By - September 7, 2007 1 Picture
September 7, 2007 The quest to try new technologies hands-on is a vexing problem for working journalists in a magazine which exclusively covers emerging technologies, as conception to market times have shrunk to months rather than years and the advance of innovation grows faster each week, like a game of Pacman – it’s an exciting time to be alive, much less working in this industry, BUT, when it comes to trialing things, newer technologies often pop up before you’ve got the last one out of the box and onto the desk. We’re forever looking to use the technology we cover to assist in processing this explosion of information and a few months back I decided that more screen real estate was needed after trailing Apple’s 24 inch iMac and getting a productivity boost– the answer, I hoped, was to spread the array of web pages, email screens, RSS feeds, spreadsheets, word and Acrobat documents Photoshop and Final Cut Pro screens, calendars, to do lists, FTP windows, Skype beckoning regularly and my iTunes life soundtrack controller across an array of screens in the hope it would help me deal with what had become an endless set of layers on my MacBook Pro. So I called up Matrox and asked for the company’s TripleHead2Go system, enabling me to hook three screens to my MacBook, and … Read More

November 30, 2006 The amount of screen real estate on your computer has a direct relationship to your productivity, which is fabulous if you have a computer capable of driving multiple screens. Increase devices will provide never before seen multi-monitor configurations for the Mac platform.

Matrox box offers three screens from one PC

By - June 13, 2006 3 Pictures
June 14, 2006 Human beings, unlike computers, don't double their productivity every 18 months. Indeed, despite a lifetime of education and thinking, a productivity increase of a few percentage points is difficult to achieve. With that in mind, you'll see why we think the US$300 Matrox TripleHead2Go deserves killer app status. It’s a palm-sized box which enables most computers to use three 19” monitors with a combined resolution of up to 3840x1024 and an incredible 45 inches of total diagonal - even if those systems only support a single display output. Research from Apple Computer shows the productivity of a computer user is directly linked to the amount of screen real-estate in front of them, while Microsoft research shows that two screens offer more productivity than one screen. So why not supercharge your productivity with three screens. It's a simple decision - thanks to Matrox, the Return-On-Investment (ROI) equation now looks MUCH better. Read More

New Matrox Extio F1400 is world's first remote graphics unit

By - February 22, 2006 4 Pictures
February 23, 2006 Matrox Graphics has announced the Extio F1400, the world's first remote graphics unit. With this solution, the user interface of the computer -- the keyboard, mouse, monitors, audio peripherals, and graphics hardware -- are separated from the rest of the computer by up to 250 meters (820 feet) of fiber-optic cable. Designed for professional applications, this product supports up to 4 digital or analog monitors at a time, and has passive (fanless) cooling. The Matrox remote graphics technology enables a new physical layout for computers and is ideal for environments like audio studios, broadcast studios, dispatch centers, control rooms, and public spaces using digital signage. With this product, the critical parts of the computer like the disks, memory, and processors can be kept in a separate, safe, secure room. This saves space at the display station, removes a potentially noisy computer, and allows system administrators to access and maintain the system at a separate location. Read More
