Matrox External Multi-Display Upgrade Delivers Premium Multimedia Content—Across All Outputs—to Create Immersive Amusement-Park Experience
MONTREAL — 7 September 2011 — Matrox Graphics today announced that Italy’s Movieland Park has selected the Matrox DualHead2Go external multi-display adapter to drive three new multi-display and multi-projector attractions at their amusement park on Lake Garda. DualHead2Go adds two monitors or projectors to a single desktop computer and uniquely leverages the host graphics card to render multimedia content across highly immersive, multi-screen environments.
Movieland Park required a multi-display solution capable of running 3D graphics across multiple displays and projectors for three upcoming attractions: a four-projector Police Academy simulation, a Terminator 5D game, and a dual-touchscreen panel for the Night Festival discothèque. The park considered several hardware options including a third-party high-performance graphics card in conjunction with a dual-graphics card approach in the same system, but the solution resulted in poor image alignment, system overheating and instability, and power-consumption issues.
