Review: Matrox DualHead2Go

This palm-sized box can turn your laptop display into multiple clones for easier presentation viewing, let you use multiple screens for applications, or give you panoramas as large as 2560

One of the compromises of portable computing is screen size. The most portable laptops sport 13- to 15-inch LCD panels that can make us squint our eyes to take in all we try to fill them with. Move to a larger screen size and suddenly a very comfortable lightweight portable becomes an uneasy luggable.

It doesn't need to be that way. If you happen to have a couple of spare displays (LCD or CRT) and Matrox Graphics' DualHead2Go module, you can snatch the video from your portable's external monitor output and create panoramas as large as 2560 x 1024. With all this visual real estate you can create expansive work screens or partitioned space for separate tasks.

The Matrox DualHead2Go drives two displays from a laptop through a palm-sized external box.

If you thought consumerization killed UC, think again: 70% of our 488 respondents have or plan to put systems in place. Of those, 34% will roll UC out to 76% or more of their user base. And there’s some good news for UCaaS providers.
