Matrox Graphics unveils DualHead2Go Digital Edition
Posted Jan 8, 2007

Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, today announced the DualHead2Go Digital Edition, the next version to the acclaimed DualHead2Go, now featuring digital outputs. This external multi-display upgrade device connects to the VGA output of compatible notebook or desktop computers and through patent-pending technology uniquely expands the desktop across two digital displays. DualHead2Go Digital Edition also enables support for high-resolution panels, offering a stretched desktop of up to 3840x1200 (or dual 1920x1200)1 across two displays.

DualHead2Go is the ideal solution for professional and business users looking for a simple and cost-effective solution to quickly increase their productivity. The multi-display configuration delivered by DualHead2Go permits working with multiple full-screen documents or applications simultaneously — eliminating the need to constantly open, close, or minimize applications. With DualHead2Go you can simply see more, do more and be more productive.

The Digital Edition of DualHead2Go enables the connection of two digital or analog displays to compatible notebook and desktop systems. In addition through the Matrox PowerDesk SE2 interface users benefit from the flexibility to select a wider range of resolutions, including support for both widescreen and standard aspect ratios.

Matrox Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXM) are small external boxes that are simple to setup — there is no need to open the computer to insert additional parts into it. The operating system detects the GXM as an ultra-widescreen monitor which is then split into two or more standard resolutions compatible with the attached displays, all the while harnessing the graphics hardware already present in the system for all 2D, 3D, and video acceleration.

DualHead2Go Digital Edition includes support for Windows Vista™, Windows® XP, Windows® 2000, Windows® XP-64 bit operating systems and Mac OSX, and is compatible with many professional and enthusiast class desktops and notebooks. A compatibility list is posted on the Matrox website. For complete details visit http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/gxm/products/dh2go/digital/home.php.

Available in Q1 2007, DualHead2Go Digital Edition has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $229USD. This product will be available from authorized resellers worldwide or, in North America and Europe, directly from Matrox at http://shopmatrox.com.
