Matrox Debuts DualHead2Go Digital Mac Edition

Posted by at 11:34 am on April 18, 2012

Matrox has refined its DualHead2Go product that lets Mac notebook users add a second external monitor to now incorporate MiniDisplayPort or Thunderbolt in the DualHead2Go Digital Mac Edition (ME). The breakout box enables a single port to now run two external DVI-based displays at up to 1920×1200 resolution. The unit comes bundled with PowerDesk software to help users manage and arrage multi-display setups and supports Lion’s full-screen application mode.

The DualHead2Go ME contains a graphics expansion module (GXM) that multiplies the existing graphic card’s video output, allowing two external monitors (in addition to the built-in display) without overtaxing the graphics card’s ability. It is compatible with MiniDisplayPort-equipped or Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Airs, MacBook Pros, Mac minis, Mac Pros and iMacs.

The unit will sell for $179, and is fully HDCP compliant, thus allowing users to view copy-protected content. Matrox is demonstrating the unit at NAB, and expects it to be on the market in June from authorized dealers or directly from the company.
