Single-slot card to drive nine displays in a 3x3 configuration, creating an ideal digital signage, presentation, and control room platform
MONTREAL — August 17, 2016 — Matrox® Graphics today announced that the Matrox C900, the world’s first single-slot, nine-output graphics card, is now available for purchase.
The award winning Matrox C900 is a single-slot, PCI Express® x16 graphics card that drives nine displays at resolutions of up to 1920x1200 @60Hz per output. Designed to power 3x3 or 9x1 video walls, C900 delivers one ultra-large desktop across all attached displays, ideal for digital signage, presentation, and video wall applications.
“Matrox C900 is a great addition to our video wall product portfolio,” says Caroline Injoyan, Matrox Business Development Manager. “System integrators and installers can now power nine-synchronized displays with a single-card, and create stunning 3x3 video wall installations for digital signage, presentations and control rooms.”
A special-purpose card designed to power 3x3 or 9x1 video walls, two Matrox C900 cards can be combined to create 6x3 or 3x6 video walls from one system, with the board-to-board framelock feature ensuring all displays are synchronized to reduce tearing. The C900, with its high reliability, outstanding performance, and low-power consumption delivers a cost-effective video wall solution for enterprise, industrial, pro A/V, digital signage, security, control rooms, and more.
“The Matrox C900 card is the ideal blend of performance, flexibility and value, and provides a compact, high-performance solution when combined with the Shuttle XPC SH170R8 or SZ170R8 Cube PC,” states Marty Lash, Director Sales and Marketing Shuttle Computer Group. “Adding C900 power to the small size of a Shuttle Cube PC provides for easy installation in retail, corporate, entertainment, QSR and hospitality environments as well as video walls in control and command operations for security, process control, and transportation.”
