Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for
professionals, announces Extio™ F1400, the world’s first remote graphics unit.
With this solution, the user interface of the computer – the keyboard, mouse,
monitors, audio peripherals, and graphics hardware – are separated from the rest
of the computer by up to 250 meters (820 feet) of fiber-optic cable. Designed
for professional applications, this product supports up to 4 digital or analog
monitors at a time, and has passive (fanless) cooling.

"Matrox remote graphics technology enables a new physical layout for
computers," says Alan Vandenbussche, VP Sales and Marketing, Matrox Graphics.
"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."

Matrox Extio is ideal for environments like audio studios, broadcast studios,
dispatch centers, control rooms, and public spaces using digital signage. With
this product, the critical parts of the computer like the disks, memory, and
processors can be kept in a separate, safe, secure room. This saves space at the
display station, removes a potentially noisy computer, and allows system
administrators to access and maintain the system at a separate location.

The versatile Matrox Extio F1400 remote graphics unit (RGU) has a Matrox-designed
graphics chip, 128 MB of graphics memory, dual-LC connector for fiber-optic
cable, 4 DVI-I monitor connectors, 6 USB 2.0 ports (4 in front, 2 in back),
integrated audio hardware, an optical connector for digital audio output, and
analog audio connectors for a microphone input, line input, and line output. To
meet different slot requirements, Matrox separately offers PCI or PCI Express (PCIe)
fiber-optic interface cards for Extio products.
