Canadian company Matrox has teamed up with its UAE distributors this week to demonstrate the latest in professional graphics hardware. Visitors to MediaSys' stand in hall four are being given a heads up on Matrox’s Parhelia HR 256, which is running on a nine megapixel (MP) iiyama panel.

The HR256 has been designed specifically to drive nine MP displays to their full potential and is targeted at users utilising high-resolution digital flat panels for the analysis of detailed imagery and large models, in fields such as mapping/satellite reconnaissance, space exploration, CAD, desktop publishing and digital photography. At Expert Computers' booth in hall 2 meanwhile, Matrox is showing its new QID Pro; a 256MB PCI 64 card with four DVI or analogue outputs and hardware accelerated OpenGL across all four screens.

“The cards we're showing offer visitors the chance to see samples of the wide range of options available,” explains Cecilia Wills, country manager, Matrox Graphics UK. “Both the Parhelia HR and the QID Pro are premiere cards with a high level of image quality and display options. We have also just launched a new range of low profile PCI cards, aimed at users of small form factor PCs and laptops with docking stations. These are available in dual and quad output versions.”

Matrox is also showing off its G450 MMS product, designed to give corporate users maximum display flexibility from one card, while still maintaining image quality and stability. The G450 MMS, says Wills, is already widely used in large financial institutions and trading floors worldwide.

“Matrox is a well known brand in many parts of the Middle East,” claims Wills, adding that there is “growing demand and interest” in Matrox's products across the region. “We are convinced there are great opportunities in the region for many of our products within markets such as finance, oil and gas, and medical,” she adds.
