Posted Feb 29, 2008

Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of graphics solutions for professionals, today announced the availability of a new software utility for Graphics eXpansion Modules (GXMs) operating under Mac OS(r) X. The GXM Control Panel enables additional resolutions for the DualHead2Go and TripleHead2Go Digital Edition products, offering greater multi-display support for compatible Mac notebooks and workstations.

"Mac users will be thrilled with the new possibilities available with the GXM Control Panel," says Caroline Injoyan, business development manager, Matrox Graphics, Inc., "The new utility not only opens up dual-display modes in TripleHead2Go Digital Edition, but combined with this GXM's dual-link DVI connectivity, it creates the ideal platform for MacBook Pro users looking for a purely digital-to-digital connection from system to displays."

The GXM Control Panel is a free download available for DualHead2Go Digital Edition and TripleHead2Go Digital Edition, and is compatible with systems running Mac OS X v10.4 or later. Digital Edition GXMs connect either standard or widescreen resolution displays and support a maximum resolution of up to 1920x1200 per display in dual-display mode and 1280x1024 per display in triple-display mode.

GXMs are small black boxes that connect externally to a system's monitor output to achieve an ultra-wide desktop across two or three displays. With a multi-display set-up, desktop management improves significantly as multiple programs can be run full-screen, or side-by-side to view more information.
