Expressly designed for thin computing and other mission-critical systems, Epica series graphics cards have innovative, new, server-based software from Matrox to manage multi-display configurations in remote sessions. The Matrox Epica TC2 graphics card supports up to two digital or analog monitors at a time. For maximum compatibility and flexibility, Epica cards are designed for the PCI slots found in most modern PCs and have low-profile form factors to fit in an even wider variety of systems. For greater reliability, Epica cards also have passive (fanless) cooling and a single Matrox-designed graphics chip to control all displays. By helping to manage large amounts of information, Matrox multi-display technology can improve productivity and reduce errors in thin-computing environments.
