NEC has new displays for medical professionals
NEC Display Solutions is a name that’s highly respected when it comes to commercial LCD displays and projectors, and the company has just announced that it will make available its line of MultiSync MD Series of high-brightness, color and grayscale flat-panel monitors. These monitors were specially designed for medical imaging applications, including radiology and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS). Some of the new MultiSync MD Series models comprise of the 21″, 2-megapixel MD212MC and the 21″, 3-megapixel MD213MC color displays. Both of them will feature front sensors, while the 21″, 3-megapixel MD213MG display with front sensor is a grayscale model.
The MD212MC and MD213MC color displays follow in the footsteps of the highly successful line of medical grayscales from NEC, and join the 30-inch, 4-megapixel MD304MC color display with backlight sensor announced earlier this year. The MD212MC, MD213MC, MD213MG and MD304MC displays can be seen at the 2008 Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) Annual Meeting and Conference (Booth No. 4270) from November 30 through December 5 at McCormick Place in Chicago. NEC’s new UA-SFT LCD module technology offers high brightness without compromising contrast or viewing angles, making the image quality outstanding for color or grayscale images. Select units include built-in front sensors for stability, as well as remote assurance of DICOM conformance.
Features of these new displays include :-
- DICOM calibration and the X-Light Pro sensor system for maintaining a consistent image
- 12-bit lookup table (LUT) for detailed images and grayscale
- ColorComp, which reduces LCD uniformity errors and compensates for differences in color/grayscale and luminance
- Front or backlight sensors
- Full medical certifications
- 5-year limited warranty with overnight exchange service
Both the MD212MC and MD213MC displays will begin shipping from this month onwards, retailing for $3,899 and $4,999, respectively. As for the MD213MG display, that will be made available next month, retailing for $4,699. Those who are interested in the MD304MC display can pick it up now for a dollar shy of $4,000.
