Montreal-based Matrox recently announced the updated DualHead2Go Digital Mac Edition multi-display adaptor, (see Architosh, Product Review: Matrox DualHead2Go DP Edition, 29 Nov 2010), designed specifically for use with Apple Mac systems.
The new DualHead2Go Digital Mac Edition MDA works by connecting the small silver boxed unit to the Thunderbolt port or mini DisplayPort video output of Mac notebooks or desktops and drives two external DVI displays each with a maximum resolution of 1920×1200.
The device comes bundled with the Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software that lets the user configure their multi-display setups and easily maximize an application per screen. In addition, the new Desktop Divider feature enables users to further customize their desktop space and improve work flow by allowing displays to be divided into smaller sections, in each of which a program can be opened and maximized.
The device is also fully High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliant and permits users to view copy-protected content on HDCP-enable displays.
“We are excited to launch the DualHead2Go Digital ME and make the benefits of an extended desktop even more accessible,” said Caroline Injoyan, Business Development Manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Simply put, DualHead2Go Digital ME’s enhanced feature set provides Mac users with an exceptional multi-monitor, plug-and-play computing experience.”
DualHead2Go Digital ME is compatible with MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, Mac Mini, iMac and Mac Pro systems. It retails for 179.USD. To learn more visit here.
