Taipei, TW & Montreal, CA — January 24, 2017 — Advantech (2395.TW), a leading embedded computing solution provider across multiple market verticals, today announced the expansion of their technology relationship with Matrox® Graphics, a leader in the field of video wall and multi-display solutions. Validated to work with Matrox's C-Series™ multi-display video cards, Advantech’s latest video wall solution, the DS-980 six-display system offers the sophisticated 4K content that users demand.

The DS-980 streams up to six displays and delivers advanced high-resolution, up to 4096x2160, true 4K content powered by 6th Gen. Intel® i7/i5/i3/ Celeron rPGA processors and integrated Intel HD Graphics. With four of its graphics outputs powered by Matrox’s C420 graphics card, the DS-980 six-display signage solution enables system integrators to create video wall solutions with faster video streaming, ultra stability, and flexibility for a wide range of enterprise, industrial, digital signage, security, and control rooms applications.

Matrox C-Series multi-display video cards have been designed to ensure excellent reliability, stability, and ease of deployment, adding outstanding performance ideal for demanding commercial and critical systems.

“We’ve just concluded a test of the Matrox C420, in combination with our newest DS-980 platform, and we’re very happy with the results. This high-quality product supports up to 6 monitors and can function as a video wall, all at a very competitive price,” said Jeroen Baerents, Business Development Manager of Advantech Europe. “Collaboration with Matrox, a highly valued and recognized player in the signage market, is an important step for us into the video wall market. We expect to test more solutions from Matrox in the near future.”

“Matrox products offer tried and tested advantages such as flexibility, interoperability, and reliability. The four-output Matrox C420 card is a high-performance addition to any system and with the Advantech DS-980 we’re putting more processing power into the hands of many more customers,” said Cecilia Wills, UK Country Manager, Matrox. “This validation expands a history of successful cooperation between Matrox and Advantech beyond our existing relationship—the AVS series of Advantech video wall controllers based on Matrox Mura capture cards.”
