NEC adds 27" wide-format screen to MDView medical imaging range
26 Oct 2010
NEC Display Solutions is adding the MDView271 colour monitor
to its MDview series of screens for medical viewing.
The 3.7-megapixel wide-format LCD screen allows two or more medical
images to be viewed simultaneously thanks to its 27-inch size and a
powerful picture-by-picture function.
This makes it an alternative to dual-screen solutions consisting of
two independent screens.
The high quality image is provided by a professional 10-bit P-IPS
(performance in-plane switching) panel with an extended colour space
and a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The MDview271 is ideal for
viewing CT or MRI images, nuclear medical sectional images or
ultrasound images and meets the requirements for PACS Clinical
HIS (hospital information system) and RIS (radiology information
system) applications will also benefit from the ability to display
several data windows over the large viewing area.
With the MDview271 NEC Display Solutions is setting a new
standard in the field of medical image viewing. This model, which
comes with a factory-installed DICOM curve, offers a number of
professional features for first-class image quality.
Three 14-bit lookup tables (LUT), individually programmable for
each RGB signal makes it possible to calibrate the monitor in
accordance with the DICOM Part 14 GSDF standard. In addition, NEC
Digital Uniformity Control ensures maximum uniform colour
reproduction while NEC Backlight Ageing Correction ensures that
image quality remains stable over the long term. The GammaComp MD QA
client software that comes with the monitor and an optional
photometer make it easy to perform regular individual DICOM
calibrations and conformance tests.
The MDview271's large 27-inch working area increases the number
of possible display variations and has a positive effect on the
user's productivity. In general, great importance has been attached
to ergonomics. The monitor is height-adjustable up to 150 mm, can be
viewed in landscape and in portrait mode and can also be rotated,
tilted and swivelled. These functions mean it can be adjusted to
match all individual requirements.
