FUJIFILM Europe Teams Synapse with Matrox Xenia
Synapse customers benefit from Xenia’s triple-monitor support and higher performance related to hardware-software integration
Montreal, Canada/Dusseldorf, Germany, December 1, 2009/PRNewswire/— Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions, is pleased to announce that FUJIFILM Europe GmbH is now shipping the Matrox Xenia™ Series display controller boards in several of their PACS and Mammography solutions using Fujifilm Synapse.
Fujifilm is one of the leading suppliers in computer based radiography, offering the world’s first internet-based PACS (SYNAPSE) and innovative solutions in image-aided diagnostics, medical information processing and clinical dry chemistry. After acquisition of drug maker Toyama, Fujifilm is on the way to become a healthcare company with the scope to include prevention, diagnostics and treatment.
"Matrox Xenia Series offers a number of advantages for Fujifilm Europe’s customers," says Lutz Lammers, Senior Product Specialist—PACS, FUJIFILM Europe GmbH. "Three-monitor support with a single board means no need to handle two video boards with two drivers (which could be error-prone), resulting in easier and faster installation. There’s less power consumption related to the use of one vs. two video boards and you save one PCIe slot. And due to the possibility of hardware-software integration, higher performance."
"Matrox is proud to have Fujifilm choose Matrox to serve the European medical diagnostic imaging market," says George Rigas, Business Development Manager for Medical Imaging, Matrox Graphics Inc. "With Fujifilm’s experienced and knowledgeable staff dedicated to the medical community, Fujifilm can support customers’ needs with a very flexible board, offering improved workflow efficiency, pristine image quality and a significantly improved experience for medical imaging professionals."
Matrox Xenia is the first native PCI Express single-slot board with all-digital, triple-monitor output, and the flexibility to drive an array of display configurations. Xenia Series supports resolutions from under 1MP to 8MP, with up to 1GB of on-board memory, and features new technology to ensure optimum display calibration (via Matrox DLC™ and 8/10/13-bit gamma LUTs). Xenia also provides medical imaging developers and integrators looking for leading edge technology the development potential for increasing hardware-accelerated performance via hardware LUTs, multiple hardware window IDs, and additional hardware features.
