Matrox Xenia Series

Matrox Xenia™ Series display controller boards are designed for use in computed radiography (CR), digital radiography (DR), and PACS workstations and support a wide range of display formats, resolutions and configurations. The native PCIe x16 single slot boards feature up to 1 GB of on-board RAM for fast image loading capacity and manipulation and each board can drive up to three high resolution digital displays, minimizing time required to install, configure and deploy imaging workstations. Each digital display output from Xenia and Xenia Pro supports the features listed below, including 8-, 10- and 13-bit independent GAMMA LUTs for precise DICOM calibration of grayscale and color displays, providing more accurate image display for viewing and diagnoses.

  • PCIe x 16 Slot
  • Programmable Gamma LUT
  • DLC (Dynamic Luminance Correction
  • Hardware Pivot
  • Optimized Bus performance
  • Up to 8 MP (Xenia Pro)

Features & Benefits


PCIe x16 single-slot board with triple high resolution digital-display output

DICOM compliant 8/10/13-bit LUT GAMMA ramp correction supported on all outputs in independent and/or stretched (NT-style) desktop modes for accurate display calibration

Digital Luminance Correction™ (DLC™)1–enables calibration packages to uniformly calibrate display luminance to well-within industry standards.
Dynamic Field-of-View Correction (DFC)1–with appropriate 3rd party applications, DFC reduces color and/or grayscale inaccuracies caused by different viewing angles of LCDs.

Image Color Profiling (ICP)1–allows 3rd party developers to use hardware-enabled ICP with up to 13-bits for accurate color rendering of subtle anatomical image structures.

Programmable Gamma LUTs supporting 8, 10 and 13-bit wide formats–for the highest calibration, meeting or exceeding DICOM industry standards across the entire display.

Hardware Window IDs and LUTs–with multiple screen regions available, application can exploit hardware-accelerated window and level functionality on a specified region.

Hardware pivot and cursor support as well as optimized bus performance and increased memory provide fast and smooth user experience for window & level and cineloops.

Enhanced features available through Matrox imaging Library (MIL) to enable hardware-accelerated operations such as image cached window/levelling, zoom, and the ability to view 1024 simultaneous shades of gray from 16-bit source images.
