If we’re to be applying LUTs to the material after it’s left the computer, whether in a dedicated LUT box or in a monitor, we’ll naturally want to start with more precision.

Saturday 29 Dec – Review: Remaining issues Still, let’s assume we’ve decided that a bit desktop display is necessary, and we’re prepared to pay for it.

However, putting a video edit workstation’s output on a desktop display creates some problems, too, perhaps chiefly the issue of frame rate conversion. The old Parhelia could use the fact that monitors might be connected to it using analogue Displaay cables, so it only needed to implement ten-bit digital to analogue conversion. Saturday 29 Dec – Review: The “Surround Gaming” support allowed the card to drive three monitors creating a unique level gaming immersion.

The card’s fillrate performance was formidable in games that used many texture layers; though equipped with just 4 pixel pipelines, each had 4 texture units. Presumably there were several bugs within the Parhelia core that could not be displwy around in the drivers.

For example, in a flight simulator or sim racingthe middle monitor could show the windshield while the left and right monitors could display the side views offering peripheral vision.

The first is that software has to know how to draw in a way that supports bit.

Twitter Feed Follow RedsharkNews”. RedShark Replay When we discussed building workstationsthere was much talk about the practicality of achieving a mattrox display of desktop video. If we’re to be applying LUTs to the material after it’s left the computer, whether in a dedicated LUT box or in a monitor, we’ll naturally want to start with more precision. Retrieved from ” https: On Windows, software such as Nvidia’s control panel has the options.

Comparatively, the bit depth problem is far less visible. Thursday 20 Dec – Zeiss Supreme Primes review: This, unfortunately, proved not displah be an efficient arrangement in most situations. This does not mean that all HDMI devices actually implement it — and comparatively few mtarox. The second issue is getting the picture to the monitor.

However, only paarhelia displays can be controlled independently. Never afraid to speak his mind, and always worth listening to, he’s a frequent contributor to RedShark. The interaction between those two events means that each video frame will be shown either two or three times, but there’s no specific intent to ensure a tidy repeated pattern.

Desktop displays have been an eight-bit world for decades and this is inculcated into the very core of how they work. Some writers believed Parhelia to have a “crippled” triangle-setup engine that starved the rest of the chip in typical 3D rendering tasks [1].


To forestall criticism, there’s a few quite legitimate reasons one might want to do this. The “” suffix refers to the bit ring bus. Both theoretically support bit. The Parhelia remained a niche product, and was Matrox’s last major effort to sell into the consumer market. Released init was best known for its ability to drive three monitors “Surround Gaming” and its Coral Reef tech demo.

matro From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Views Read Edit View history. The frame buffer is in RGBA After the launch of Parhelia, Matrox released Parhelia-LXwhich supports only bit memory and has only 2 pixel pipelines. Even then, it’s a bit of a stretch to justify an Nvidia Quadro board just for display, since new ones are generally more expensive than a Decklink board, but there are lower-end and used options.

Dual link TMDS is supported via external controller connected to the digital interface.

Arbitrary conversion That conversion is typically done fairly arbitrarily because it works much the same way for any piece of computer software that mateox back video, from a Blu-ray player to YouTube to Premiere. That’s easier on some systems than others. In other projects Wikimedia Commons.
