Matrox Announces The World's First Remote Graphics Unit

3 posts in this topic


Matrox's new Extio F1400 promises to be a big boon to businesses

Considering that Matrox hasn't been competitive in the gaming space for ages, it has had plenty of time to tailor products for business customers. Its latest product, the Extio F1400, turns the tables on how you interface with your computer.

The Extio F1400 is the world's first remote graphics unit and allows the keyboard, mouse, up to four monitors and audio peripherals to be completely separate from the computer. And here's the kicker – the computer is connected to the Extio F1400 with up to 820 feet of fiber-optic cable.

"Matrox remote graphics technology enables a new physical layout for computers. It more effectively separates the use and administration of a system. This technology has a better combination of integration, reliability, image quality, and distance than any other extension technology," says Alan Vandenbussche, VP Sales and Marketing, Matrox Graphics.

The security, space and noise reduction benefits of such a solution are tremendous. A business' PCs could be locked in away in a cool room and each worker would be connected to their individual PC via their own passively-cooled Extio box.

Here are some of the features of the Extio F1400:

User devices can be separated from computer by up to 250 meters (820 feet) of fiber-optic cable

Support for up to 4 digital or analog monitors at a time (in "independent" or "stretched" mode)

Passive cooling for silent operation and extra reliability

6 USB 2.0 ports (4 in front and 2 in back)

Integrated audio hardware

Multi-function audio-output connector for an optical-S/PDIF signal or analog-stereo signal

Standard analog audio connectors (microphone, stereo-line-in, and stereo-line-out)

PCI and PCIe (PCI Express) fiber-optic interface cards (sold separately)

1600 x 1200 maximum resolution per display

Matrox UltraSharp Display Output Technology

Unified display drivers for Matrox Extio products and QID graphics cards

Easy-to-use Matrox PowerDesk display driver interface

Matrox Clone to view a copy of one display on the other displays

Global sales and technical support

2-year warranty

The Extio F1400 will start shipping in the second quarter of 2006 – pricing is not yet available.


É inovador mas considero desnecessário. Quem é que terá dinheiro para isto? :)
