Wow... 16 displays.
Now that's definitely overkill!
"The future starts with you; now start posting more!"
16 displays, wow that is a lot of displays. When I saw the title I was thinking April fools carry over. I guess it could be useful in several professional situations though that I can think of. Personal I think it would be overwhelming though.
UM HH, next contest??? 16 monitors and one of these units? :D
Haha that would be sweet. Notice you can drive the monitor up to 1 Km away from the KVM so roughly 3000 feet. Could you see one PC driving 16 of those new transparent flat screens showing ads.
Whats the advantage of Matrox's product over a pair of high end AMD cards in crossfire with eyefinity?
16 monitors? wow, i guess if you have like a security system or something, this can come in handy?
Yeah-Man!,......Super Spider Solitaire!!
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
ridiculous. you might as well turn your office into an ESPN zone and charge employees to watch games at lunch.
pjnissim:ridiculous. you might as well turn your office into an ESPN zone and charge employees to watch games at lunch.
There's gonna be a lot of people buying into this though,..........security centers maybe?
We actually have these where I work at. It is rather strange having your computers on the other side of the building.
