Ability to combine Matrox products for a stretched Windows desktop across up to eight displays key advantage for professionals working in high-reliability environments

Montreal, Canada, May 30th, 2007 – Matrox Graphics Inc., today announced the release of the Matrox PowerDesk-SE 2.04 display driver featuring a new Joined graphics card mode and improved widescreen resolution support. The enhancements in this driver provide more control for displaying information across multiple screens—a critical requirement for professionals in industries such as financial trading, energy management, train dispatch, and process control.

“Matrox developed PowerDesk-SE 2.04 in response to requests for more advanced display configurations,” said Samuel Recine, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “We understand that in high-reliability environments, our customers need to see—and know—the entire situation. Customizing displays across multiple screens gives them the flexibility they need to visualize all incoming data and see their bigger picture.”

More Display Options

PowerDesk-SE 2.04 includes Joined graphics card mode, a feature that enables two Matrox multi-display graphics cards* to work in tandem in several Microsoft® Windows® desktop combinations. Using the following modes, you can either stretch or clone multiple displays:

 

§   Stretch: use both graphics cards to form one desktop across multiple monitors

§   Clone: view a copy of one display on all other displays

§   Twin-stretch: use one graphics card to stretch one desktop across multiple displays and clone this desktop to displays driven by second graphics card.

§   Twin-independent: use one graphics card to view information independently on multiple displays, and clone the outputs to the independent displays driven by the second graphics card.


Additional features include: PowerRes mode, which offers increased widescreen resolution support, and Pivot mode, which allows for hardware rotation of one or more displays into portrait view. PowerDesk-SE 2.04 extends the functionality of the following Matrox Graphics solutions:
