Matrox Graphics Inc.

company overview
Company Overview
  • Established in 1976
  • Fully integrated graphics card manufacturer

with offices worldwide

      • Designs ASIC, board and drivers
      • Dedicated technical support
  • The established market leader ofmulti-display graphics
  • Designs graphics solutions for the requirements of GIS professionals

Innovations in Graphics Support for the Efficient Management of GIS

It can become cumbersome to efficiently manage GIS

data on a single display:

  • overlapping windows hide

important information

  • time is wasted toggling

between applications and windows,

and by frequent zooming and

panning through large maps and

detailed imagery

A traditional single desktop becomes too small for all of the

information that needs to be managed.

Matrox has developed 2 solutions to the cluttered screen:

  • Extending the desktop across multiple displays
  • Supporting larger, higher resolution displays

These provide more desktop real estate, enabling you to

efficiently manage the data you work with.

#1:Extending the desktop across multiple displays:

  • benefits geotechnology professionals from all industries

(including coast, marine & oceans and natural resources).

Surround Design, a unique Matrox innovation, seamlessly

extends your desktop across multiple displays:

        • providing greater perspective
        • making analysis more intuitive and efficient
        • facilitating collaboration
        • reducing chances of errors
        • etc.

Surround Design increases your workspace letting you see and do

more at once.

Technical Challenges overcome todevelop Surround Design:

While creating this technology, Matrox made sure that it was

possible:

  • to have up to 3 outputs (digital and/or RGB) from a single chip and single memory frame buffer
  • for the graphics card to have exceptional performance, be efficient and compatible with various platforms
  • to enable full OpenGL acceleration on all 3 displays
  • to have Stereo support
  • for end users to be able to control where windows and dialog boxes appear across the extended desktop
  • for fluid performance when panning and zooming
  • to have stable support for many popular CAD and GIS applications

# 2: Going to a larger display that supports higher

resolutions:

  • is ideal for enhanced visualization of maps, computer cartography, and satellite

imagery.

With optimal support for 3840 x 2400

panels @ 200 dpi and full refresh

rates, it enables you to:

  • see more in much greater detail
  • easily pan through, and zoom

in and out of, large images

More resolution and pixel density

This is the optimal solution for those using high resolution panels.

At 200 dpi, the quality of images is greatly enhanced.

But, at this enhanced resolution everything is reduced.

Fonts, toolbars and menus, become small, so some prefer to add additional displays for manipulation of their CAD/GIS tools.

Technical Challenges overcome toprovide higher resolution support:

In developing this technology, Matrox ensured that it would provide

optimal support for specialty, multi-input, 9 MP panels providing:

  • four digital channels (via 2 LFH-60 outputs) from a single chip and single memory frame buffer
  • a direct connection to the display, with no adaptors,
  • fluid performance when panning and zooming
  • stable support for many popular applications for enhanced visualization

For specialized usage scenarios requiring enhanced visualization as well as additional monitors:

  • a Parhelia™and Parhelia HR256 can be used alongside each other in the same system.

In this example, aerial imagery of the same area can be seen simultaneously.

For even more specialized requirements, Matrox has designed the Parhelia™ Precision SGT (Satellite Grayscale Technology)

  • Supports one grayscale channel (stereo) and one color channel (stereo)
  • Can be used along side a 9 MP display for Stereo Analysis on a color or grayscale monitor
  • Can be used as a stand-alone solution

to compare grayscale and color imagery

In Summary

Matrox has developed innovative graphics solutions, with

unique, specialized features, that address the specific needs of

GIS professionals.
