Top North-American system integrators to offer turnkey solutions


Montreal, Canada, May 25, 2006—Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, is pleased to announce that its award-winning new TripleHead2Go is now shipping worldwide and receiving widespread support from industry leaders, the press and top enthusiast system integrators. TripleHead2Go is a palm-sized box that uniquely allows you to add three monitors to your workstation, gaming system or laptop, delivering incredible productivity boosts to office work, Surround Design to workstation environments for professionals and an immersive Surround Gaming™ experience to enthusiasts.

First demonstrated publicly at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco in March, TripleHead2Go won not only the Intel Technology Innovation Acceleration Award (TIAA) in the Digital Home category, but also took away the highly coveted "Best of Show" award.

The press has also been raving about the new TripleHead2Go. With already 4 awards to date, acclaim from industry leaders has been continuous:

"It's been a long time since we've seen a product with so much "wow!" factor, and it's been even longer since we've seen a product with "wow!" factor that retains long-term benefits. Whether you're a video producer, photographer, or you just want to straight-up get your game on, Matrox definitely has a winner with the TripleHead2Go." (www.neoseeker.com)

The excitement level has especially been palpable in the gaming community. Several game developers have worked with Matrox to make necessary adjustments to their games to ensure compatibility with TripleHead2Go. Such popular titles as World of Warcraft™ by Blizzard Entertainment, Half-Life 2: Lost Coast™ by Sierra and Valve, and Unreal Tournament 2004™ by Epic Games have recently been added to the list, bringing the total number of supported titles to over 135.

Matrox is committed to growing the list of supported titles and will be making updates available on the web. The Matrox Surround Gaming Utility, a simple software application bundled with TripleHead2Go that automatically updates game configuration files to have proper settings enabled for TripleHead resolutions, now has over 135 supported titles.
