Media Creation & DCC

As an artist or digital content creator, you need multiple palettes, menus, bins, controls, and toolbars in your applications. Spread out your projects, work more comfortably, and increase your productivity with a Matrox DualHead2Go-powered multi-monitor setup. The extra screen space will allow you to view more layers of video on the timeline, increase the size of your video scopes and frame viewers, as well as customize your entire workspace to improve your workflow.

  • Maximize your studio real estate
  • Transform your laptop into a productivity powerhouse
  • Comfortably edit video content on your Mac notebook computer

CAD Design & GIS

Take advantage of increased desktop space when using CAD software. Work on your design drafts, architectural models, or plans across multiple monitors.

Add two monitors to your notebook computer for a full surround 3D design experience.
