Matrox Extio Units Control Workstation Noise and Stability at the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service

KVM Extension technology provides enhanced performance, distance, image quality, and multi-monitor support for 25 workstations.

Montreal, Canada - Matrox Graphics, the leading manufacturer of specialized graphics solutions, today announced that the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service (INBS) has selected Matox Extio Series Remote Graphics Units to regulate noise and stability issues for 25 dual- and quad-monitor worskstations across 8 studios. Extio F1220 and F1400 KVM extension solutions separate the keyboard, mouse, audio peripherals, and graphics hardware from the host PC via fiber-optic cable, while supporting up to four monitors at resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 per display.

INBS had recently modernized outdated radio equipment in all of their studios, but the new installation-which included playout servers, recording machines, and script PCs-required additional workstation and server support, leading to a noticeable increase in both fan and hard drive noise. In an effort to eliminate the in-studio buzz, INBS relocated the computer hardware to designated housing rooms, but the new distance reduced display quality and caused problems with USB-connected controllers. INBS technicians solved these problems by installing fanless Matrox Extio F1220 and F1400 units at the operator station, enabling workstation-class performance at a distance using Extio's PCIe fiber-optic extension technology.

"After the initial test run, we were confident that the Extio's unique feature set could help us achieve our re-design goals," stated Gunnar Gisli Gudnason, Head of Maintenance, Icelandic National Broadcasting Service. "Now, with noise-free studios, ultra-crisp monitors, and properly functioning hardware, complaints about system failures are at an all-time low, creating a much more comfortable-and productive-work environment for all INBS employees."
