Matrox showing extender & multi-display adapter

MONTREAL — Matrox Graphics ( will show the Avio KVM extender and DualHead2Go DP Edition external multi-display adapter at NAB 2012. The Avio fiber-optic KVM extender delivers uncompressed dual-DVI video, keyboard, mouse, and audio to a remote user station up to 2,000 meters from the host computer, eliminating system heat and noise from the workplace. DualHead2Go DP Edition allows mobile creative professionals to transform their MacBook Pro notebooks into productivity-enhancing editing platforms by enabling the addition of two external monitors.

Avio is a fiber-optic KVM extender that's well suited 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 2,000 meters via a single fiber-optic cable, while the computer remains in a secure, climate-controlled machine room. Matrox Avio maintains high system performance, image quality, and smooth HD video playback without any frame rate drops or color degradation.

The DualHead2Go DP Edition external multi-display adapters are geared towards video editors, design artists, or compositors. The solution allows users add two monitors to a Mac notebook for enhanced desktop space. 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.

Matrox Video Products Group will also be on hand, showcasing H.264 encoding accelerators; A/V input/output/monitoring devices for use with the latest Adobe, Apple, and Avid editing applications; cost-effective HD-SDI scan converters; versatile mini-converters; and multiviewers at the show.
