Japan Material Co. to supply Matrox Equinox and Onyx products in Japan

Increased connectivity and monitor options for Japanese operating rooms enabled by Matrox graphics extension units and display controller boards


Montreal, Canada, June 10, 2008—Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, today announced that Japan Material Co., Ltd, is an authorized agent for Matrox Equinox and Onyx products in Japan.

Operating rooms all over the globe are going digital, enabling OR staff to access PACS images and other patient data by installing monitors in the OR. Thanks to this partnership between Matrox and Japan Material, Japanese healthcare facilities now have the option to install high-resolution monitors without adding additional cable clutter, noise and heat related to placing a PC in the same room. Each Matrox Equinox graphics extension unit drives two independent monitors (up to 4MP each), using fibre-optic cable to place the PC up to 250m (820') away from the hygienic OR space. Operating room monitors can be controlled from within the OR using a variety of tools connected via USB 2.0 (e.g. keyboard, mouse), or from the remote PC locating using additional monitors powered by the optional Matrox Onyx display controller board. By replicating display information in a control room or educational theatre, improved monitoring of surgical procedures is also possible.

"Matrox, through Japan Material, has supplied specialized medical imaging display products to the Japanese OEM markets for many years," says George Rigas, business development manager for medical imaging, Matrox Graphics Inc. "We are excited to continue our relationship with Japan Material with our Equinox and Onyx solutions designed for operating room installations and healthcare educational facilities."

"We look forward to supplying Matrox Equinox and Onyx products in Japan - enabling new operating room display options, in addition to optional remote control and monitoring capabilities, for Japanese healthcare facilities," says Akira Shimabukuro, sales department manager, Japan Material Co., Ltd.
