New product launches for Matrox12 June 2012
Matrox Graphics is presenting high-performance videowall controller boards, dual-DVI fibre-optic KVM extenders, and external multi-display adapters, while Matrox Video Products Group is showcasing HD-SDI scan converters, versatile mini-converters, and the new Matrox MicroQuad four-channel SDI to HDMI multiviewer.
Matrox Avio F120 is a fibre-optic KVM extender for graphics-intensive design and visualization applications. Avio lets users separate the computer from the working environment and place it in a secure, climate-controlled machine room. Matrox Avio consists of a transmitter and receiver pair, which captures dual-DVI, keyboard, mouse, analogue, and USB HID devices from the host system and extends them uncompressed up to 2,000m over a single fibre-optic cable.
Matrox Convert DVI scan converters (pictured) let broadcasters easily and incorporate content from computers, iPads, and iPhones into news programmes. They also drive projectors and large displays at live events and in houses of worship.
Also on show is the Matrox DualHead2Go Digital SE, an external multi-display adapter that lets users add two DVI monitors to a laptop or desktop PC. The adapter connects externally to the system’s video output and leverages its existing GPU to provide high-quality, uncompressed graphics and video across all monitors at resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 per display. Ideal for digital signage, office, 3D CAD design, modeling, or content-creation applications, this little box allows users to run different applications on each display or view one application across two screens.
Matrox MC-100 is a dual SDI to HDMI mini converter that helps broadcast engineers and /V professionals manage SDI signals within their environment. It supports a wide range of display resolutions through 3G, Dual Link, HD- and SD-SDI. This single portable unit can be used as an HD-SDI switcher, a distribution amplifier, a multiplexer, and a 3D processing unit, making it the most versatile mini converter on the market.
The new Matrox MicroQuad multiviewer, meanwhile, enables users to monitor multiple 3G-, HD-, or SD-SDI feeds on affordable HDMI displays. The small, easy-to-use device is ideal for OB vans, on-set productions, and live events. Users simply connect power and up to four SDI inputs – all controls are on the unit itself, no computer is required.
Matrox Mura MPX videowall controller boards support up to four HD inputs and up to four HD outputs on the same PCI Express (PCIe) x16 Gen2 board, leveraging 64 Gbit/sec duplex data transfer for the flawless display of video input captures without sacrificing frame rate, color, or resolution. Mura boards feature highly flexible, universal input channel support for both digital and analog (SL-DVI, RGB/VGA, Component, S-Video & Composite) video signals and can be combined with other Mura output/input, analog capture, and video output boards to drive desired channel requirements.
