BOSaNOVA Offers Fat Visuals for Thin Clients
July 17, 2007 Alex Woodie
While big flat panels are all the rage these days, users can absorb just as much information, if not more, by using multiple monitors to interact with host applications via thin client emulators. This is a niche that Matrox Graphics has specialized in for the past three decades, as its products have been embedded into solutions for the financial and healthcare industries, as well as for CAD and dispatch solutions.
The deal involves Matrox’s EpicA hardware and PowerDesk and PowerSpace software, and BOSaNOVA’s XTC-1300, a Windows-based thin client that features a 1.3 GHz processor and the 8X AGP graphics accelerator, which is one of the fastest graphics processors available in a thin client, according to BOSaNOVA. By embedding the dual-monitor and quad-monitor EpicA multi-display graphics cards into BOSaNOVA’s thin client, users will be able to display their sessions across multiple monitors, instead of switching between sessions on a single monitor.
“Integrating Matrox EpicA with our most powerful thin client to date, the XTC-1300, allows thin-client users to display large amounts of information at higher resolutions across multiple monitors,” says Martin Pladgeman, BOSaNOVA president. “Matrox’s reputation, expertise in multi-display products, and commitment to quality make this partnership an obvious fit.”
