The newest addition to the Extio series product line

Montreal, Canada, January 23, 2007 – Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, announces the Extio™ F1220, the latest addition to the Extio series of Remote Graphics Units (RGUs). The Extio F1220 enables the extension of one or two displays, audio, two IEEE 1394 FireWire ports, and up to six USB devices, such as keyboard and mouse, by up to 820 feet (250 meters). By separating the computer from the monitors and user-interface, the Extio series of products helps address issues such as security, heat, noise, system maintenance and support in high-reliability computing environments.

“The Extio series reinforces the Matrox commitment to delivering the most stable and reliable graphics solutions to professional workstations and mission-critical monitoring systems,” says Samuel Recine, Business Development Manager – Critical Decision Systems, Matrox Graphics Inc. “The Extio F1220 will join the Extio product family in providing a more integrated and higher-performance alternative to older KVM Extension and DVI Extension technologies.”

Reliable Controls With support for one or two digital or analog monitors at resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 per monitor, 128MB of graphics memory, fanless operation (no moving parts), and a Matrox-designed graphics chip, the Extio F1220 provides long-lasting and reliable operation. The Extio F1220 RGU is connected to a Matrox PCI or PCI-Express Extio adapter card in a workstation or server slot via a standard multi-mode fiber-optic cable with Dual-LC connectors. The connectivity options include 6 USB 2.0 ports (4 at the front, 2 at the back), integrated audio hardware with standard audio jacks, and two IEEE 1394 FireWire ports. Driver features for Extio series products include support for Pivot, PowerRes for robust widescreen display, stretched and independent display, and other powerful display management features.

Key application areas include financial, insurance, and commodities trading systems; emergency and transportation dispatch control systems; process control systems; security systems; command-and-control systems; and other high-reliability applications in enterprise, industrial, and government systems.
