DualHead2Go, a multi-display device developed and
produced by Matrox, connects to the monitor connector of a computer
and adds support for an extra monitor. The operating system treats
DualHead2Go device like a monitor, thus supporting resolutions twice
as wide as standard resolutions.
This multi-display solution uses a
computer's existing graphics hardware and software for 2D, 3D, and
video acceleration. By helping to manage more information, Matrox
multi-display technology can improve productivity and reduce errors.
DualHead2Go uses Matrox patent-pending technology to divide the
monitor output from the computer into 2 separate displays, one
showing the left half of this "monitor" and the other showing the
As an external add-on, the new device is suitable for
enhancing closed, already validated, mission-critical system or to
computers with no available expansion slots, including laptops,
ultra-small form factor PCs, thin clients, and embedded systems.
Unlike installing a new graphics card, the DualHead2Go setup doesn't
require opening a computer, inserting parts into it, or replacing
any hardware or software.
