New Matrox TripleHead2Go external upgrade offers support for 3 monitors at a time

Montreal, Canada, March 2, 2006 —Matrox Graphics Inc. announces TripleHead2Go™, an external upgrade that adds support for using 3 monitors at a time. The easy-to-install unit simply connects to the monitor output of a computer. The operating system treats TripleHead2Go like a monitor supporting resolutions 3 times as wide as standard resolutions and TripleHead2Go uses Matrox patent-pending technology to divide the monitor output from the computer into 3 separate displays. The displays respectively show the left, center, and right portions of this "monitor". This announcement follows the recent introduction of DualHead2Go™, the world's first multi-display upgrade of this type.
 
"TripleHead2Go brings the advantages of using 3 monitors at a time to systems using the latest non-Matrox graphics hardware and to closed, already validated, mission-critical systems," says Sam Recine, Product Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "Users of certain Matrox graphics cards already benefit from Matrox TripleHead technology in areas like CAD, GIS, 3D simulation, computer-aided dispatch, security monitoring, and process control. For many professionals in such areas, using less than 3 displays at a time just doesn't cut it."
 
Unlike installing a new graphics card, the TripleHead2Go setup doesn't require opening a computer, inserting parts into it, or replacing any hardware or software. TripleHead2Go maximizes the capabilities of a system by using its existing graphics hardware and software for 2D, 3D, and video acceleration. By helping to manage more information, Matrox multi-display technology can improve productivity and reduce errors.
 
TripleHead2Go includes support for Microsoft® Windows® 2000 and Windows XP, and is compatible with a wide range of recent graphics hardware. The maximum resolution support varies according to the capabilities of the graphics hardware in the system.
