In a press release in January 2010, Matrox announced the upgrade of its Multiple Graphics eXpansion Module Support.
Matrox Graphics Inc., a major manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions headquartered in Montreal, Canada, announced its release of multiple DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Module (GXM) which are designed to drive up to four or six monitors, respectively, from a single system.
Following this upgrade, a second GXM can now be connected to the secondary output of a supported dual monitor graphics card, and therefore two DualHead2Go GXMs can power up to four outputs in 2x2 or 4x1 modes, while two TripleHead2Go units can be combined to connect six displays to produce either a 3x2 or 6x1 set up.
This upgraded support makes it possible to run four or six monitors from one video card, in either one or two rows – thereby supporting more displays. With this support upgrade, you can connect two TripleHead2Go or Matrox DualHead2Go units into your computer to get a four- or six-monitor workspace.
Ron Berty, Business Development Manager at Matrox Graphics said: "Multi-GXM support offers a tremendous amount of flexibility by simply having to connect the GXMs externally to your system or workstation." He went on further and said: "Business professionals for example, can now conveniently upgrade to a four- or six-monitor workspace to run additional applications for real-time viewing. Additionally, AV specialists can effortlessly build six-screen presentation or digital signage platforms to drive dynamic, digital messaging while benefiting from the natural synchronization of the screens being driven by a single GPU."
Currently, Matrox is offering multi-GXM support with the 2.06 (or above) GXM software suite. A maximum of two GXMs of the same model can be connected to a supported graphics card with two available outputs of the required type.
Matrox M-Series cards give you access to Multi-GXM stretched desktop mode, and independent desktop support is available with supported M-Series, ATI, and NVIDIA graphics cards.
In this press release, Matrox announced that the company will be showcasing this technology and other digital signage graphics solutions designed by the company at the Integrated Systems Europe summit in Netherlands, in February 2010.
Matrox has been consistently supplying high quality products over the past years. Their in-house design expertise and dedicated customer support has enabled the company to achieve a solid reputation in the industry.
