House of Worship Drives Triple-Screen Projection with Matrox TripleHead2Go

Catalina Church uses TripleHead2Go external multi-monitor adapter to revitalize its stage and enhance audience engagement

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that Tucson-based Catalina Church created its new visually-stunning triple-projector setup using a Matrox TripleHead2Go external multi-monitor adapter. Sound and visual technology experts CCI Solutions recommended the low-cost, easy-to-use multi-monitor solution to drive dynamic, inspirational content across the three-screen-configuration, resulting in a revitalized stage design that has enhanced worship engagement.

Matrox TripleHead2Go at Catalina Church

Already familiar with TripleHead2Go for other house of worship installations, CCI Solutions connected the adapter to an Apple® iMac desktop computer to support three Christie® projectors. Featuring a compact black box design, TripleHead2Go easily connects to iMac computers via the Thunderbolt™, Mini DisplayPort™, or Mini DVI video output—depending on the model—without a need to open up the system. The installed RenewedVision™ ProPresenter® lyric and media presentation software meanwhile permits church staff to easily manage video and graphics on the screens, which can serve as a decorative design element, complementary showpiece for musical performances, or even an enlarged reading surface for lyrics or text.

“Visually our space used to have no focus and getting people to engage in worship was a challenge,” said Brian O’Morrow, worship pastor at Catalina Church. “Not only does our triple-screen system look amazing, it is super simple for our volunteers to use and helps us create the engaging, interactive experience we were hoping for.”

New features make Matrox Avio F125 the ideal solution for long-haul transmission of high quality dual-HD, 4K or 4K UHD video content

Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that important new features have been added to Matrox Avio™ F125 KVM extension solutions. Maximum extension distance over a single duplex LC-LC fiber optic cable has been increased from 4 km (2.5 mi) to 10 km (6.2 mi) and High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) compliance has been added.

Matrox Avio F125 - 10km KVM Extension with HDCP

Designed for high-performance environments, Avio F125 delivers fluid graphics and video playback over long distances making it ideal for Pro A/V, industrial process control, oil and gas, 3D design and visualization, education, military, broadcast and post-production environments. The ability to extend uncompressed dual-HD, 4K or 4K UHD video; keyboard; mouse; stereo analog audio and USB 2.0 devices up to 10 km from a workstation over a single duplex LC-LC cable lowers the cost of deployment across campuses and multi-story facilities.
