Matrox Adds Edge Overlap Functionality for Multi-Projector Platforms

Combine easy-to-use Matrox M-Series feature with blending-enabled projectors to cost-effectively drive seamless content across two to eight projectors

Montreal, Canada — Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced multi-projector edge overlap support with the 4.00.02 display driver for Matrox M-Series graphics cards operating under Microsoft® Windows® 7. The new Matrox PowerDesk Edge Overlap feature allows M-Series users to easily and intuitively adjust the number of overlapping pixels between blending-enabled projectors to create a seamless, unified image. With edge overlap natively supported at the GPU level and no scaling required, M-Series cards provide outstanding image quality for all standard applications—across the entire desktop—for a very effective, collaborative work environment. Matrox M-Series cards can be combined with affordable edge blending-enabled projectors to provide a unique, cost-effective solution for boardrooms, classrooms, digital signage applications, and worship and presentation environments looking to drive seamless digital content on up to eight projectors in a wide range of configurations.

"The Matrox M-Series’ new edge overlap functionality works great as a complement to our Mitsubishi 8000 series of edge blending, dual-lamp projectors," says Wayne Kozuki, product manager for projectors, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. "Our integrators can now create a seamless multi-projector image at a lower price point, making this unique hardware combination from Matrox and Mitsubishi a great value for challenging display projects with challenging budgets."

"AV professionals and integrators should be eager to add the Matrox M-Series cards to their list of video sources to use when edge blending with Panasonic PT-D6000 Series, PT-DZ8700 Series and PT-DZ12000 Series projectors," says John Meehan, Engineering Manager, Panasonic Solutions Company, "The Matrox graphics card’s image overlap feature, coupled with our projector’s edge blending and picture-in-picture features will enable them to easily produce sophisticated yet cost effective seamless imagery suited for small, medium, and even some large-scale projection environments.”

“Adding edge overlap across the entire M-Series product line allows for content to be seamlessly displayed across two to eight projectors as though it was one seamless image,” says Ron Berty, Business Development Manager for Matrox. “Seams on both the vertical and horizontal axes can be overlapped easily and effectively with the new driver, and with projectors from Mitsubishi, Panasonic, and others adding the blend touch, the resulting image is simply outstanding.”

The latest addition to the Matrox PowerDesk software suite, Matrox Edge Overlap for M-Series graphics cards creates affordable multi-projector solutions that avoid the higher costs and complexity associated with ultra high-end projectors and custom projection hardware and software. Matrox Edge Overlap on M-Series graphics cards allows users to combine a standard PC with cost effective projectors to create a seamless, multi-projector solution.
