Montreal, Canada, June 7, 2007— Matrox Graphics Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics solutions, today announced that Planar Systems, Inc., a worldwide leader in specialty display solutions, will bundle Matrox MED™ Series 10-bit display controller boards with its Dome EX line of diagnostic displays.

Matrox was selected to produce a 10-bit display controller board for the Dome EX grayscale display products that could deliver up to 1,024 calibrated shades of gray.
