Appian Graphics Jeronimo Pro Multi-monitor Card to Support 4 Monitors With Video From One PCI Slot; Jeronimo Pro Now Available in 2- and 4-port Configurations.
In addition to driving up to four monitors from a single PCI slot, the Jeronimo Pro 4-port's optional TV Tuner support and video capture capability will appeal to financial traders who simultaneously view market changes, news feeds and stock analysis applications across multiple monitors. Others who will appreciate the new video features include computer aided design (CAD) users, multimedia developers and digital content creators whose professional productivity can be increased by expanding their desktop.
"With the Jeronimo Pro, users now have the option of extending their desktop across four monitors from one PCI slot -- a true space saver," says Lisa Epstein, Appian's senior product manager. "In addition, the Pro 4-Port's video capture capabilities and optional TV Tuner support is a breakthrough for those needing to view and manipulate a large number of video and text files simultaneously."
Jeronimo Pro 4-Port key benefits include:
-- Increasing the users' level of productivity by expanding their
desktop across four monitors from one graphics card.
-- Using only one PCI slot to support four monitors with video,
leaving other slots open to run additional expansion cards.
-- Displaying NTSC, PAL or SECAM video at 30 frames per second on
any monitor (including across monitors).
-- Selecting and displaying broadcast channels with stereo sound
via the optional Appian TV Tuner.
-- Jeronimo Pro is bundled with HydraVision, Appian's patented
display management software that allows users to get
the most out of their multiple monitor configuration.
