Matrox partners with IGEL Technology for multi-display thin-computing solutions

Matrox Epica multi-display hardware and software for thin-computing now integrated with the IGEL PanaVeo thin-client series

Montreal, Canada, December 5th, 2006—Matrox Graphics, the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, today announced integration of its Matrox Epica multi-display hardware and software suite for thin-computing with the new PanaVeo-Series of thin-client devices, developed by IGEL Technology, the world's 4th largest thin-client vendor (H1 2006 IDC). This integration gives IGEL users the ability to connect up to four monitors simultaneously to a single PanaVeo thin client, which is especially useful in environments such as financial trading floors, command centers and industrial control rooms, where viewing large amounts of information in a limited amount of space is required.

"After careful consideration, we concluded that for high-end, multi-display thin-client solutions, only the Matrox Epica was suitable," says Stephen Yeo, World Wide Strategic Marketing Director, IGEL Technology. "It has a unique combination of low power, high resolution, multi-output and ease of driver integration into our image and remote management software. The result is the IGEL PanaVeo thin client; the world's first thin device specifically designed for quad display. It opens up unprecedented opportunities for organizations needing to display lots of information in environments where space, heat, security and manageability are a concern"

Matrox Epica hardware includes dual (Epica TC2 and Epica TC2-Lite) and quad (Epica TC4) multi-display graphics cards, which feature low power consumption, support for high-resolution digital or analogue displays and support for Pivot mode. The Epica software suite, installed on the server side, includes Matrox PowerDesk Epica, which enables multi-display awareness for remote desktops, and Matrox PowerSpace Epica, which allows for multi-display virtual workspace capabilities.

The IGEL PanaVeo-Series includes four models: The IGEL-7302 LX and IGEL-7602 XP incorporate the Matrox Epica TC2 (dual) multi-display solution, while the IGEL-7304 LX and IGEL-7604 XP incorporate the Matrox Epica TC4 (quad) multi-display solution. The series features IGEL Clever Clienting® power, which boasts advantages such as low total cost of ownership, advanced security features, efficient central client administration, and performance tailored to meet individual customer needs.

"Matrox Epica brings real value to the thin-computing market space with unprecedented innovation," says Mohamed Jivraj, Product Manager, Matrox Graphics. "By combining Epica hardware and software with the PanaVeo-Series thin-client devices, users can enjoy a fully-integrated, multi-display solution with advanced remote desktop management and functionality."
