New Matrox PowerSpace Epica
Virtual desktop management software enhances usability of Matrox Epica graphics cards for thin computing

Montreal, Canada, July 27th, 2006—Matrox Graphics, the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, announces the release of Matrox PowerSpace Epica software, a new virtual desktop management solution for financial, insurance and enterprise professionals working in thin-computing environments. The new Matrox PowerSpace Epica software is part of a complete solution designed to provide virtually hosted desktops with the same feature-rich multi-display computing experience PC users have come to expect from Matrox. PowerSpace Epica software functions exclusively with the new Matrox Epica graphics cards and works in conjunction with Matrox's specialized window management software designed for thin computing: Matrox PowerDesk Epica. This hardware and software solution helps to provide multi-display capability to thin-computing environments and simultaneously enhances the user experience with powerful productivity-enhancing features. Matrox PowerSpace Epica software is complimentary with the purchase of any Matrox Epica graphics card (Epica TC2-Lite, Epica TC2 or Epica TC4) and can be obtained by download from the Matrox website.

"Matrox PowerSpace Epica is an innovative virtual desktop management solution designed to further enhance the user experience of professionals working with multi-display remotely hosted desktops," says Alan Vandenbussche, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing, Matrox Graphics Inc. "With its array of unique features, Matrox PowerSpace Epica is ideal for all types of professionals with thin-computing requirements, making it a flexible, scalable and easy-to-manage solution which offers tremendous benefits to thin-computing users and IT administrators alike."

By installing Matrox PowerSpace Epica on the server, users are able to customize virtually hosted desktop workspaces to the way they work, in order to streamline work processes and enhance productivity with multi-display features previously only available to PC, laptop and workstation users. Matrox PowerSpace Epica virtual desktop manager allows the user to define up to nine virtual desktops per monitor, or per multi-monitor workspace, that can be labelled and toggled with hotkeys. The "Desktop Recall" feature of PowerSpace Epica enables users to save the application position as it appears on the workspace, and to automatically reposition applications to their saved locations. The "Autostart" feature enables users to determine which applications they would like to be started automatically upon login and repositions them to their saved location. The "Import/Export" feature enables system administrators to back-up user workspace data onto the network so workspaces can be imported and exported effortlessly. Matrox PowerSpace Epica allows for multiple settings to meet user needs: a local setting for multi-monitor office desktop usage and an RDP setting for single monitor access from home. This "RDP Awareness" feature retains the user's local (work) settings for a multi-monitor configuration even after a remote login session (RDP) from a single monitor has occurred.
