Matrox solutions drive triple-monitor aircraft simulation and evaluation workstations for civil and military pilots

MONTREAL, March 23, 2011 - Matrox Graphics Inc. today announced that Symbiotics has integrated
Matrox TripleHead2Go Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) as part of a unique
pilot selection and assessment tool for the armed forces and civil aviation
sector. The Matrox TripleHead2Go external multi-display solution allows
Symbiotics to build a two-system platform that features a triple-monitor
flight simulation test station for the prospective pilot, while a second
triple-monitor workstation is reserved to evaluate the candidate across
variety of performance criteria.

In developing a new pilot selection and assessment program, Symbiotics
required a multi-monitor solution to convert two single-display systems to
two triple-monitor workstations. After validating the Matrox TripleHead2Go,
Symbiotics used the solution to run three displays-at resolutions of 1280 x
1024 per screen-in a highly immersive, flight simulation environment that
would test candidates on their physical control, cognitive flexibility, and
workload management. The expanded onscreen desktop also proved highly
beneficial for the evaluation workstation as it provided evaluators with the
appropriate workspace requirements to productively interact with the examiner
interface, psychometric screen, and navigation. The new innovative human
factors technology now allows Symbiotics to accurately-and confidently-match
a qualified pilot to their client's needs.

"The benefits in using the TripleHead2Go are realised through a dynamic
localization of monitors to suit our bespoke configuration," says Mike
, Human Factors Consultant, Symbiotics Ltd. "While aligning screens
alongside one another creates a widescreen immersive display, the ability to
split the content of the examiner desktop enables an examiner to work
remotely from the candidate field of view."
