DisplayLink brings multi-monitor computing to the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family
First ever quad-monitor solution for Intel-based desktop and notebook PCs
SAN FRANCISCO and PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 19, 2008 – Helping to make it even easier for PC users to work and play on multiple monitors, quad-monitor technology developed by DisplayLink, for the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family optimizes quad monitor computing for notebooks and desktops.
Quad-monitor technology combines DisplayLink's USB network display software with the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family for desktop and notebook PCs, where, the technology outputs images on up to four displays at the same time - two integrated displays plus two DisplayLink (USB) enabled displays.
No extra graphics cards are required, making it easier, faster and less expensive for desktop and notebook users to achieve the benefits of multi-monitor computing. Users can rely on a familiar USB interface to simply plug and view in multi-monitor mode, gaining more capabilities and productivity since they can spread several applications over four displays while viewing everything at once.
DisplayLink is exhibiting this solution for the first time at Intel Developer Forum (IDF) 2008 in booth #223.
"Intel is the world's largest graphics company, and its choice of DisplayLink's quad-monitoring technology validates the strength and performance of our product," said Dennis Crespo, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development for DisplayLink. "Working together, we've developed the industry's easiest-to-implement quad-monitor solution for future generation laptops and desktops, particularly because users don't have to hassle with adding another graphics card."
With DisplayLink USB graphics connection technology, users with PCs based on the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family can easily connect to external peripherals they need without sacrificing performance, mobility or cost.
The DisplayLink graphics solution supported by the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family is optimized for Windows Vista Basic and Ultimate Windows Vista Aero where accelerating video playback and high-definition images look more realistic. In addition, DisplayLink is optimized for DVD playback without compromising performance.
"Together with DisplayLink USB graphics technology, PC users now have the added capability to multitask and increase productivity with multiple screen outputs using PCs based on the Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family," says Eric Mentzer, Graphics Development Group General Manager, Intel Corporation.
