Matrox Extio F2208 features unique bus extension technology over fibre-optic cable to flawlessly drive two high-resolution displays up to 1 KM from the PC

MONTREAL, February 28, 2011 - Matrox Graphics Inc. today unveiled the new Matrox Extio F2208 KVM
extender, a remote graphics solution that separates the operator console (two
displays plus five USB 2.0 ports for keyboard, mouse, and other HIDs) from
the host system by up to 1 kilometre of fibre-optic cable. The dual-monitor
Extio F2208 leverages its unique bus extension technology using a proprietary
PCIe bus interface card to deliver raw, uncompressed data over the single- or
multi-mode cable, enabling users to run applications at up to 2560×1600 per
remote monitor with uncompromised workstation performance. Designed
specifically for process control rooms, dispatch centers, and other
mission-critical environments, the Extio F2208 is a stable and reliable I/O
extension solution that allows the critical parts of the computer be kept in
a separate, secure location.

The new Matrox Extio F2208 dual-display units join the previously
announced Extio F2408 quad-display units in offering higher performance,
expanded operating system support, and increased distance over the popular
first generation Extio KVM extenders. Matrox Extio customers benefit from
feature-rich Matrox PowerDesk desktop management software and passive cooling
for silent operation and reliability, while at the same time eliminating
hidden dropped frame issues experienced with compression-based KVM extension
