Matrox unveils DualHead2Go Digital Edition

Montreal, Canada, 8 January 2007 – Matrox Graphics Inc., the manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, announced the DualHead2Go Digital Edition, the next version to the acclaimed DualHead2Go, now featuring digital outputs. 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. “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.”

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 SE2 desktop management software allows users the flexibility to select a wider range of resolutions, including support for both widescreen and standard aspect ratios.

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.

– System Compatibility
DualHead2Go Digital Edition includes support for Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows XP-64 bit operating systems and Mac OSX, and is compatible with many professional and enthusiast class desktops and notebooks. A compatibility list is posted on the Matrox website.

– Price and Availability
Available in Q1 2007, DualHead2Go Digital Edition has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $229USD. This product will be available from authorized resellers worldwide or, in North America and Europe, directly from Matrox at https://shopmatrox.com.
