Matrox DualHead2Go offers completely new way to add multi-display support

Montreal, Canada, November 8, 2005 — Matrox Graphics Inc. introduces DualHead2Go™, the world's first multi-display upgrade of its type. This easy-to-setup external device connects to the monitor connector of a computer and adds support for an extra monitor. The operating system treats DualHead2Go like a monitor supporting resolutions twice as wide as standard resolutions and DualHead2Go uses Matrox patent-pending technology to divide the monitor output from the computer into 2 separate displays, one showing the left half of this "monitor" and the other showing the right half.

"An increasing number of professionals in information-intensive fields like CAD and GIS are using laptops as their main computer," says Samuel Recine, Product Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. "Many of these same professionals want the advantages of a multi-display workstation while at the office. Because DualHead2Go is an external upgrade, it's ideal for adding an extra display to closed, already validated, mission-critical systems or to computers with no available expansion slots."

Unlike installing a new graphics card, the DualHead2Go setup doesn't require opening a computer, inserting parts into it, or replacing any hardware or software. This multi-display solution uses a computer's 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.

DualHead2Go includes support for Microsoft® Windows® 2000 and Windows XP, and is compatible with a wide range of laptops and with certain other systems. The latest list of known compatible and incompatible systems is available at the Matrox website. For more information on this and other Matrox products, see:
