Montreal, Canada, April 4, 2012 — Matrox Graphics announced today that it will be showcasing the Matrox® Avio KVM extender and the Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition external multi-display adapter at NAB 2012 (booth # SL5115), the largest international digital event for audio, video, film, broadcast, and communications professionals. The Avio fiber-optic KVM extender delivers uncompressed dual-DVI video, keyboard, mouse, and audio to a remote user station by up to 2000 meters from the host computer, eliminating system heat and noise from the workplace. DualHead2Go DP Edition meanwhile allows mobile creative professionals to transform their MacBook Pro notebooks into productivity-enhancing editing platforms by enabling the addition of two external monitors, leading users to optimally view, organize, and manage complex projects.
Matrox Avio is the ideal fiber-optic KVM extender for broadcast, graphics-intensive design, visual effects, and editing applications. The Avio transmitter and receiver pair extends dual digital video, analog stereo audio, and USB keyboard and mouse from the host system by up to 2000 meters via a single fiber-optic cable, while the computer remains in a secure, climate-controlled machine room. Matrox Avio maintains exceptional system performance, image quality, and smooth HD video playback without any frame rate drops or color degradation.
Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition external multi-display adapters represent must-have gear for video editors, design artists, or compositors. DualHead2Go DP Edition lets users add two monitors to a Mac® notebook for enhanced desktop space to spread out projects and multitask more efficiently. The DualHead2Go DP is simple to set up and connects to the Thunderbolt™ port or Mini DisplayPort™ video output of Mac notebooks, working with the system’s existing graphics processor to deliver a high-performance, multi-display for any digital content creation or multimedia application.
