Matrox Graphics Unveils DualHead2Go Digital Edition

Montreal, Canada - Matrox Graphics Inc., a manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, has announced the DualHead2Go Digital Edition featuring digital outputs. This external multi-display upgrade connects to the VGA output of compatible notebook and desktop computers and expands the desktop across two digital displays.
DualHead2Go Digital Edition supports high-resolution panels, offering a stretched desktop of up to 3840 x 1200 (or dual 1920 x 1200) resolution across two displays. DualHead2Go Digital Edition is the latest addition to the comapny's Graphics eXpansion Module product line. 
DualHead2Go is well suited for professional and business users seeking a simple and cost-effective solution to increase productivity. The multi-display configuration delivered by DualHead2Go enables working with multiple full-screen documents or applications simultaneously.
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 can select a wider range of resolutions, including widescreen and standard aspect ratios.
Matrox Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXM) are small external boxes that are easy to setup, without the need to open the computer. 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, 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, and Windows XP-64 bit operating systems and Mac OS X, and is compatible with many professional and enthusiast-class desktops and notebooks. A compatibility list is posted on the Matrox Web site at http://www.matrox.com.

Available this quarter, DualHead2Go Digital Edition has a suggested retail price of $229.
