On October 4, Matrox Graphics Inc. announced the Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE external multi-monitor adapter, which expands your system's single-video output into an immersive triple-monitor setup so that you see and do more. This new Graphics eXpansion Module (GXM) connects to a compatible system's DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort video output or Thunderbolt port and lets you add three external DVI monitors, each with maximum resolutions of either 1920 x 1080 @50Hz (PC) or 1360 x 768 @60Hz (Mac).
New High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance meanwhile enables the playback of copy-protected content, such as Blu-ray discs, across all three monitors. Compatible with a wide range of GPUs running under Mac or Windows, TripleHead2Go Digital SE yields a cost-effective multi-monitor platform for office, trading, digital signage, CAD, ProAV, houses of worship, content-creation, and simulation-training applications.
"We're pleased to expand our TripleHead2Go product line," said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "TripleHead2Go Digital SE features improved usability for our customers, offering a simple and easy way to add three displays to a notebook or desktop PC. TripleHead2Go Digital SE is a versatile product that delivers an excellent multi-monitor setup from basic office applications to high-end 3D simulation and training environments - its unique design leverages the GPU performance of the system to deliver uncompressed graphics and video across all three displays - a true multi-display solution."
Furthermore, accompanying Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software lets you optimize your multi-monitor experience through the customization of where and how applications open up among a vast array of other settings. Bezel Management, one of PowerDesk's many features, available under Microsoft Windows, compensates for the gap in an image resulting from the bezels of adjacent monitors. TripleHead2Go Digital SE consequently delivers captivating digital signage, immersive simulation, and expansive gaming across multiple monitors.
Multi-GXM support, another feature designed to maximize your workspace, enables two TripleHead2Go Digital SE's to be connected to one system under Windows. Users can then operate up to six external monitors at once and create visually stunning video wall setups or multi-screen presentations, further illustrating the TripleHead2Go Digital SE's value and versatility as a key building block of your next ProAV installation.
Pricing and availability The new Matrox TripleHead2Go Digital SE is available as of November 2012 at the MSRP of $279.00 (approx. Rs 14,500) for purchase from authorized Matrox resellers worldwide or, in North America and Europe, directly from Matrox.
