Matrox’s Single-Slot Graphics Card Targets Digital Signage, Control Rooms

Published: February 11, 2016

One little, single-slot graphics card can do a lot.

That’s the big message out of Matrox‘s ISE 2016 stand where it announces Matrox C900, calling it the world’s first single-slot, nine-output graphics card that supports nine 1920×1080 displays at 60Hz.

It’s the latest card in the Matrox C-Series line of multi-monitor graphics cards.

The C900 is designed to power 3×3 and 9×1 video walls, offers single-slot form factor and 75W power consumption. Matrox says it offers simple integration at a low cost of ownership.

Its support for stretched desktop across all nine synchronized outputs lets users run any application full screen across a 3×3 video wall, lending itself to signage in retail, corporate, entertainment and hospitality, according to Matrox, adding that it’s also suited for control room video walls solutions in security, process control and transportation.

More from Matrox’s press release:

Matrox PowerDesk™ desktop management software for Windows® is included with C900 to give users a comprehensive set of tools, including bezel management and EDID management, to easily configure and manage their multi-display setups. Advanced APIs are available to developers and OEMs to quickly build custom interfaces and applications.

“Three-by-three configurations are the sweet spot for many digital signage installations and control room video walls,” said Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Now with C900, for the first time, nine Full HD displays can be driven from a single-slot card and system integrators can easily offer a turnkey solution to power three-by-three video walls. They also benefit from the premium technical assistance, long product life cycles and reliability that Matrox is known for.”

More displays can be supported by inserting two C900 cards or a C900 plus a Matrox C680 six-output board into a system to power 18- or 15-screen video walls. The board-to-board framelock feature ensures synchronization of all displays.
