S-CAPE chooses Matrox Equinox to ship with their systems

Matrox Equinox graphics extension unit hand-picked by S-CAPE for integration in multi-console monitor systems for the OR


Montreal, Canada, October 30, 2007 —Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, today announced that S-CAPE, a provider of medical imaging viewing systems, is bundling Matrox Equinox™ graphics extension units with its image viewers.

Housed in a hygienic casing, S-CAPE's image viewer allows medical imaging professionals to view patient images within an operating room without compromising safety or viewing flexibility. Combined with Matrox Equinox, operating room staff now has more options than ever.

Matrox Equinox Series brings pristine image quality from a single PC computing station to remote displays. This allows hospitals to replicate OR displays, distribute medical information to various locations, and provide operator access to data, audio/video, and imagery. Using fiber-optic cable allows each Equinox station to be located up to 250m away from the PC."Combining the highly flexible Matrox Equinox with our multi-console monitor systems gives our customers unprecedented viewing options–in and out of the operating room," says Uwe Seidel, general manager, S-CAPE.

Equinox Series interfaces to a single PC which can be networked and securely located outside the OR, resulting in less congestion within the OR, and the ability to use standard commercial PC platforms. Data and image information can be routed to Equinox Series stations using a standard Microsoft® Windows® environment which simplifies distribution and control.

"Matrox is pleased that S-CAPE has selected the Matrox Equinox Series of graphics extension units for the OR," says George Rigas, business development manager, medical imaging, Matrox Graphics Inc. "This solution allows operating room staff to view pristine images in the OR in a safe and hygienic manner, using the latest in digital display technologies."
