Unique specialty graphics accelerators provide enhanced visualization for satellite imagery analysis and air traffic control.

Matrox Graphics will be demonstrating its line of professional graphics cards for satellite imagery analysis and air traffic control (ATC) applications at West 2004, the largest event on the West Coast for communications, electronics, intelligence, information systems, imaging, military weapon systems, aviation, shipbuilding and more.

When: Tuesday, February 3rd, 2003: 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; Wednesday, February 4th, 2003: 8:30 a.m.- 4:30 pm.; Thursday, February 5th, 2003: 8:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Where: San Diego Convention Center

From digital periscopes to air traffic control systems, Matrox offers a host of professional COTS graphics cards that can be customized to a large degree to ensure the best fit into a particular project. Matrox graphics cards are relied upon for various military requirements, including information warfare, modeling, simulation, visualization, analysis and monitoring.

Matrox Parhelia and Parhelia HR256 graphics cards, for instance, offer features such as unmatched support for non-standard resolutions and aspect ratios on the highest-resolution, multi-input displays, as well as on color or grayscale stereo monitors; OpenGL support on up to three displays from a single chip; AGP or PCI connectors, enabling several Matrox cards to be run alongside each other in the same system for enhanced workstation setups; high meantime before failure (MTBF); stereo; genlocking; and certified drivers for leading CAD and GIS applications.

What's more, Matrox's UltraSharp Display Output Technology ensures the sharpest render possible onscreen. Due to Matrox graphics cards' high-precision random access memory digital to analog converters (RAMDACs) and advanced design techniques, signal quality is maintained at the highest frequency desktop settings, resulting in flicker-free, ultra-crisp images that are free of any pixel ghosting, sparkling or shadowing artifacts.
