Matrox Graphics and Bell Micro announce partnership to extend digital signage solutions
IBC 2008, Amsterdam – September 15, 2008 /PRNewswire – Matrox Graphics, the leading manufacturer of specialised graphics solutions, today announced they have entered into a distribution partnership with Bell Micro enabling the company to offer the whole Matrox digital signage portfolio, including the new Veos multi-channel digital extension hardware, as part of their Digital Signage Solutions.
"It is my pleasure to announce that Bell Micro will offer Veos, our new product for extending multiple channels of content, as part of their Digital Signage Solutions," states Cecilia Wills, Country Manager, Matrox Graphics. "Bell Micro is known for their strength in distributing specialised high-tech solutions, and this partnership provides the foundation for more integrated, turn-key solutions in the ever-expanding digital signage market."
With Veos, digital signage for an entire shopping mall or sports arena can be driven from a single computer. The unique Veos solution uses a master unit to output three discrete channels of content to many display units—with zero loss of image quality. The optional repeater unit branches and even further extends wiring options. Each unit provides over 100m of crystal-clear extension, guaranteeing image quality for both simple and complex installations.
"Veos represents an opportunity for Bell Micro to use its technical expertise to bring together key technology and products," said David Chantry, Product Marketing Manager, Bell Micro. "We look forward to partnering with Matrox Graphics to deliver new and innovating digital signage solutions for customers and potential customers alike."
