Need a quick and easy way to add more monitors to your computer setup?  The new HydraDisplay adapter allows you to connect three monitors to one one graphics card. Right now Cirago is having a contest on their FaceBook page where you can win one of them for free to clean up your workstation.

Cirago International, a leading manufacturer of multimedia centers, storage and wireless solutions, today announced the launch and immediate availability of its new HydraDisplay X3 DisplayPort Multi-Monitor Adapters that enable both PC and Mac users to add up to three monitors on a single graphics card through one built-in DisplayPort output.

Two models of the HydraDisplay Adapter offer plug-and-play ease with no driver installation required:

  --  The HDX3DV01 expands a single DisplayPort into 3 DVI-D ports on a
      single graphics card or notebook to expand the screen space and enable
      users to get longer life out of legacy DVI monitors.
  --  The HDXDP01 lets users connect a single DisplayPort output to three
      DisplayPort monitors for maximum performance on the existing
      DisplayPort graphics card.

The HydraDisplay Adapters are the only adapters on the market that are both Windows/PC and Apple/Macintosh compatible, allowing a single adapter to easily be moved from one hardware platform to the other with simple plug-and-play convenience. With no driver installation required, expanding screen real estate is now fast, easy and affordable. Both models feature HDCP 1.3-compliance for data security and copy protection and offer zero latency and full video performance.

"Our new HydraDisplay Adapters are perfectly suited to help both the home and office computer user expand screen space and get more out of their existing hardware," said Patrick Lo, President of Cirago International. "Some major PC and monitor manufacturers have plans to phase out DVI technology. But, with HydraDisplay, users can keep their DVI monitors in use, even after a computer upgrade, to save money and help reduce technology waste in the environment."

Cirago’s HydraDisplay Adapters support both desktop cloning (displaying the same content on multiple monitors) and extended desktop mode–a feature highly desired by gamers, graphic designers, stockbrokers and market traders who need extra space to display multiple windows and large spreadsheets. Small business owners can also benefit from the ability to display more information on fewer machines to streamline and simplify workflow. Instead of using expensive digital signage equipment, a low-cost PC can now be used with monitors to achieve the same results.

Each HydraDisplay adapter includes a 45" DisplayPort connector cable and comes complete with a mini-DisplayPort adapter, making it easy to expand screen space on a Netbook, MacBook or MacMini.

The HDX3DV01 (DisplayPort to 3XDVI) model carries an MSRP of just $179, while the HDXDP01 (DisplayPort to 3XDisplayPort) is priced at $169 MSRP. Both are available at major electronics retailers including NewEgg.com, MicroCenter, Amazon.com and TigerDirect.com.

Cirago is currently holding a Most Cluttered Desktop contest on Facebook to win a HydraDisplay Multimonitor Adapter. Contestants will upload a picture of their current cluttered workspace, and a winner will be chosen on September 20, 2010. Only persons residing in the United States who are at least 18 years of age or older can enter.
