Availability
Matrox products are available through a worldwide network of authorized dealers. The new Matrox version 3.0.1 software includes support for Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), as well as Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion). The software is available now to registered users as a free download from the Matrox website.
