Canon announces SX7 Mark II D projector
Canon is back with a brand new projector from its award-winning REALiS Multimedia Projector lineup, known as the SX7 Mark II D with DICOM Simulation Mode. Of course, us regular folks might scratch our heads and wonder what all of that is about, but for folks who are in the medical-education field, they can now view monochrome digital X-Rays, CAT Scans and MRI’s with accurate color and precise detail thanks to the REALiS SX7 Mark II D. After all, you wouldn’t want your doctor or surgeon to misdiagnose your illness simply because of poor visuals when it comes to interpreting your X-ray, would you? Not only that, the SX7 Mark II D is able to meet this need on a scale much larger when compared to traditional monitors.
The DICOM Simulation Mode that is available on the REALiS SX7 Mark II D will simulate the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. Under guise of this mode allows, users are able to calibrate directly on the projector using 21 different levels of gamma adjustments. For the layman it might not amount to much, but this flexibility is significant as calibrating in a classroom, conference room or any other environment can be challenging since the level of ambient lighting is never the same. It might not be cleared or approved for medical diagnosis, but this projector is definitely ideal for medical educators who want to display large images to properly train students and conduct lectures/conferences without breaking the bank (relatively speaking, as you will find out later).
Similar to all other REALiS Projectors, the SX7 Mark II D will come with Canon’s advanced LCOS technology that is most famous for rolling out film-like images and video. This high end, state-of-the-art technology is accompanied by native SXGA+ high resolution (1,400 x 1,050 pixels) and an impressive 4,000 lumens of brightness, making sure images are always delivered with exceptional color reproduction, fine lines and crisp small text (even as small as 7 point). Interested in picking one up? It retails for a cool $7,799 and ought to be available this month.
