Matrox Graphics to Showcase Parhelia Graphics Card for GIS at ESRI Conference 2003 06.26.2003

Advanced multi-display capabilities are ideal for working with vast and complex geospatial data.

The Matrox Parhelia graphics card will power PCs running ESRI software across three displays at the upcoming ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, California. The increased desktop real estate available with Parhelia provides significant benefits for GIS professionals in areas such as agriculture, government, public safety, public works, and transportation.

When: Tuesday, July 8th: 9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
Wednesday, July 9th: 9:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m.
Thursday, July 10th: 9:00 a.m.–1:30 p.m.

The event will be held at the San Diego Convention Center, 111 W. Harbor Drive, San Diego, Calif., in Booth #117, Hall F.

The Matrox Parhelia graphics card (available in 128MB and 256MB configurations) offers ESRI software users unmatched versatility with Surround Design--hardware accelerated 2D and/or 3D on one, two or three displays--and its support for specialized formats such as multi-input displays, stereo, genlocking, and non-standard resolutions and aspect ratios.

Surround Design is ideal for spreading out application windows that would otherwise need to be overlapped or minimized on a single display. Similar to how spreading a map out across a table rather than looking at a folded map corner increases how much you can see and improves your assessment of scale, the Matrox Parhelia graphics card can increase your digital perspective from one display to two, or even three. Also, viewing maps at different zoom factors across an extended desktop makes analysis much more intuitive and efficient.

The freedom to work with large models across two or three displays makes tasks such as land information management, surveying and mapping much more efficient and productive. Additionally, Surround Design makes it possible for one to consult training documents, work with collaboration tools, or keep an eye on incoming email while working on a project, reducing the need to minimize windows.
