“However, with the Matrox PowerDesk Edge Overlap feature that is available on all Matrox M-Series graphics cards, Extio F2208 and F2408 KVM extenders, and Mura MPX display wall controller boards, users can easily and intuitively adjust the number of overlapping pixels between edge-blending projectors to create a unified image.
“These Matrox products can be combined with edge-blending projectors to provide a cost-effective solution for boardrooms, classrooms, digital signage application and presentation environments seeking digital content on up to eight projectors per graphics card in a wide range of configurations.
“Matrox Edge Overlap duplicates the GPU’s output edges, allowing each projector’s output edge to be physically overlapped with that of the adjacent projector. The fine detail of manipulating the number of overlapped vertical and horizontal pixels is managed through Matrox PowerDesk, a multi-display desktop management software available with the display driver.”
Matrox Fuels Flight info Displays at Munich Airport
By Alice Gustafson
“With 39 million passengers passing through the Munich Airport departure and arrival gates every year, the flight information display system (FIDS) is a mission-critical piece of technology at the airport—and one that sorely needed updating.”
“Using a Matrox M9148 quad-monitor and M9188 octal-monitor graphics card combination within six of their Magnius-2 video wall controller systems, InoNet was able to power an astonishing 72 NEC X463UN displays, each at Full HD resolutions of 1920x1080.”
“I think our favorite part of the install is the low maintenance approach to the whole project,” said Benedict Merl, marketing communications manager at system integration company InoNet Computer GamH.

“More and more HOW environments are adopting Matrox multi-projector technology and have seen first-hand how it’s kept their congregations actively involved—and enthralled—in services and performances.”
“TripleHead2Go’s wide-ranging compatibility, whether it’s for PC and Mac, laptops and desktops, and monitors and projectors, makes it easy to use existing hardware to affordably install any triple-projector configuration. The M-Series graphics cards meanwhile, include the Edge Overlap feature at no additional cost, allowing users to employ edge blending projectors to create a simple, reliable, and cost-effective multi-projector solution.”
Matrox M9188 PCIe x16 Makes Building a Display Way Easy
Dual Monitors and What They Mean for You!
January 13, 2012
"As far as video wall solutions go, it can be challenging to find a solution that meets both cost and technical constraints. The Matrox M9188 is a multi-screen Octal card for graphics that was designed for those that need to visualize large amounts of data in order to effectively make decisions. What's more, it is the first single slot PCI card that offers octal output and even supports both display port and DVI single link outputs- making it compatible with nearly all of today's monitors. It also comes standard with 2 GB of memory and includes desktop management features like independent and stretched desktop modes."
"The Matrox M9188 also includes edge overlap technology which helps create a seamless blending effect on images by adjusting the number of overlapping pixels. For video walls, this technology is absolutely essential."
"Multi card support is a huge perk with Matrox M9188 because it means that by using additional cards in the same system, you can drive up to 16 displays. This is perfect for tradeshow or day traders alike."
"Another one of my favorite features of the Matrox M9188 is the multiple operating support which includes drives for the latest version of Windows (Windows 7 both 32 and 64 bit) as well as Windows Vista 32 and 64 bit, Window XP 32 and 64 bit and Windows Server 32 and 64 bit. They also include drivers for Linux, which can't be said about a vast majority of video controllers on the market. This means easy cross over for those of you that prefer the older operating systems such as XP because of the stability it offers."
"I'm a huge fan of Matrox and their multiple monitor technologies and this piece of equipment is no exception."
YCD Announces Launch of 12-output MuVi Wall™
Issue Summer 2011
"YCD Multimedia is proud to announce the debut of its unrivaled, single-PC, 12-output MuVi Wall™, an advanced capability that marks yet another milestone in the development of what is largely regarded as the industry's most flexible video wall solution."
"YCD's 12 output capability, a marriage of the Windows 7 operating system and three robust, professional-grade, Matrox quad cards, was leveraged with the capabilities of the Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The installation can be configured to display content across all twelve screens, as one single canvas, or with specific content on each screen, individually."
"For the retailer, the benefits are numerous. Aside from the energy-conscious and minimalizing effects on the environment, this new technology also helps to decrease the total cost of ownership. First and foremost, YCD's innovation is driven with the customer in mind and the 12-output wall helps in lowering operational cost by creating a single, synchronized, structure for managing multiple screens, in multiple configurations, with minimal administrative oversight."
Malls and airports: Dynamax POV, through Clear Channel, seems to be going down a storm in Norway
Digital Display for Retail Magazine
"Because Clear Channel Norway provides turnkey solutions - including hardware, software, copy and creative needed to drive their digital signage, they needed to find a graphics card solution that could power this challenging multi-screen setup. To reduce the number of components for each configuration, Clear Channel Norway decided to use the Matrox quad-analog upgradeable graphics cards (M9120 Plus and P690 Plus). This simplified the installation process for each individual shopping mall, and reduced the number of components required for each multi-display setup ultimately ensuring a smoother rollout."
"Clear channel set up 42 computers throughout Oslo airport, each connected to a Matrox TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Module outputting to three 40" monitors. An external box, the TripleHead2Go was simple to install and allowed the total number of computer systems required for this project to be reduced. On some of the triple screen set-ups, content was designed to stretch across all three screens whilst on others, each screen displays independent content such as local, international, and translated newscasts."

ConnectPress 2008 Workstations Roundup Graphics Cards with a Sizzle
By Lauren Browne and Cynthea Kinnaman
"Workstations and graphics cards go hand in hand. A good workstation should contain a good graphics card. So what happens when you need to update that graphics card to keep up with the ever-changing graphics needs instead of buying a whole new workstation? Not to mention, some users need a graphics card that will work with Vista's Aero interface [...]."
"Matrox Graphics Inc. offers a host of graphics cards suitable for CAD users with desktops and workstations. Their new line of M-Series graphics cards is compatible with Windows Vista and can power a multi-monitor configuration of up to four displays as well.
