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

MONTREAL, February 9, 2011 - 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(R) Windows(R) 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

"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.


The new edge overlap feature is now available for download on the Matrox
drivers page. For more information, visit the or contact Matrox Graphics directly at
