Matrox unveils cable-connected port replicator

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

Matrox has extended its Extio line of monitor and peripheral extension modules. The Extio F1220 allows users to tuck away systems but routing display, audio, USB and Firewire data down a 250m cable and into the Extio, which can sit on a desk connected to multiple monitors, keyboard, mouse, etc.

The F1220 has front-mounted audio, two Firewire and four USB ports. Round the back are two more USB connectors and four display ports - two DVI and two VGA - though only two screens can be connected at any one time. All the ports, of whatever kind, are fed from a PCI or PCIe card in the host machine.

The F1220 will ship in Q2. Matrox did not disclose pricing. ®
