Matrox Electronic Systems, Ltd., manufacturer of professional graphics, digital video editing and scientific and industrial imaging products, announced that co-founder and president, Lorne Trottier, has been awarded Le Prix Lionel-Boulet. Awarded to researchers who have distinguished themselves through their inventions, their scientific and technological innovations, their leadership in scientific development, and their contribution to Québec’s economic growth, this award is dedicated to the memory of Lionel Boulet (1919-1996), an engineer and founder of ERIQ, the Electricity Research Institute of Québec. It honors leading figures who have distinguished themselves through their industrial research and development (R&D) activities.
In 1976, Trottier and partner Branko Matic co-founded Matrox Electronic Systems. Over the past 27 years Trottier and Matic have built the Matrox group into a multi-million-dollar family of companies with operations in the computer graphics, imaging, and video industries. Throughout the company’s growth, Trottier has assumed many different roles as both a manager and a technical innovator.
