Matrox Announces New Remote Graphics Unit


IMagine having your Media Server anywhere in your house? The Matrox Extio can drive up to four monitors while your computer resides over 820' away. To round out your remote desktop experience, Matrox supplies 6 USB ports, 2 IEEE 1394a ports, and three audio ports. It certainly seems like a dream come true, however pricing and cabling may put this out of reach of the average consumer.
