Matrox Collaborates with 3M to Offer Multi-Touch, Multi-Display Solutions

Matrox has announced a partnership with 3M Touch Systems to produce validated touch drivers that support the functionality of multiple touch displays powered by Matrox’s multi-monitor products.

The Canadian video company Matrox Graphics Inc., has announced a partnership with 3M Touch Systems to enable electronics professionals to create interactive video walls and digital signage solutions.

The Skinny: Matrox explains the collaboration between the companies fosters installers’ abilities to personalize their clients’ interactivity with a variety of content.

“With our Mura MPX, DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go products, multiple displays are seen as one large stretched desktop, and standard, off-the-shelf touch displays typically have had difficulty supporting this stretched desktop mode,” states Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “3M’s new driver overcomes this limitation and provides a simple way for integrators to add engaging interactivity to their multi-screen digital signage setups.”

The Specs: The new 3M MT7 14.0 driver for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft Windows 7 is available as free downloads at the 3M website. The following 3M Multi-Touch Displays are supported by the downloads C4667PW, C3266PW, C2167PW, C2256PW, M2767PW, M2467PW, M2167PW and M1866PW.

Matrox adds its DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go external multi-monitor adapters are supported in this partnership. Its M-Series add-in graphics cards, Mura MPX video wall controller boards and Extio KVM extenders are also supported.

Solutions: The collaboration addresses applications including interactive kiosks, way finding, retail and exhibit display walls, multi-panel classrooms, boardrooms, and command and control installations.
