Matrox Announces Multi-Display Software Suite for Virtually Hosted Desktops

August 7, 2008
Now supported by ultra-low power Matrox P690 graphics cards, new Remote PowerDesk and Remote PowerSpace software offer a range of unique, productivity-enhancing features for professionals who depend on multiple displays.

Montreal, Canada, August 6th, 2008/PRNewswire - Matrox Graphics Inc. announces that Remote PowerDesk and Remote PowerSpace software are now supported with Matrox P690 Series graphics cards, in addition to the already supported Matrox Epica Series. These multi-display software suites provide extensive desktop management capabilities to improve the user experience with multi-monitor desktops hosted virtually using Microsoft RDP or Citrix ICA protocols.

Previously only available with Epica cards, Remote PowerDesk and Remote PowerSpace provide users of any remote platform with P690 add-in cards a vastly improved remote multi-display user experience. Advanced desktop management features such as Desktop Divider, window maximization to a single screen, window position recall, and virtual workspaces allow users to customize application behavior across multiple monitors.

“In multi-display hosted sessions, our remote software offers a better multi-monitor experience than integrated graphics,” states Mohamed Jivraj, Product Manager – Critical Decision Systems, Matrox Graphics, Inc. “In addition to better handling of window positioning across multiple monitors, administrators can auto-program and configure desktop settings on a per-user basis, giving them more control when deploying multiple systems.”

Best-of-breed 2D image quality, unified drivers, and maximum power consumption ranging between 10W and 12W makes the P690 Series ideal for use in green computing environments, thin clients, fat clients (desktops), and docking stations.

Matrox P690 Series graphics cards are available immediately through our authorized resellers worldwide. Remote PowerDesk and Remote PowerSpace are available free of charge for Epica or P690 customers.
