November 20, 2017 — Eizo announced in October the release of the new 55-inch 4K UHD monitor CuratOR LX550W for use in interventional radiology and endoscopy. The company said this widescreen monitor with 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160 pixels) resolution is ideal for displaying medical images for angiography, cardiology or endoscopy in medical environments and can be mounted on a wall or ceiling mount.
The LX550W features IPS LCD technology that is characterized by a very wide viewing angle. Image reproduction is thus made even more precise and efficient, regardless of the viewing angle.
The monitor has extremely bright LED background lighting enabling a calibrated brightness of 400 cd/m2. The LED background lighting is maintained at this calibrated brightness level thanks to the integrated stability system and ensures that visual impressions remain consistent over time.
To ensure an accurate and uniform grayscale display, Eizo carefully measures the brightness values of each monitor during production and sets all grayscales to comply with the requirements of the DICOM Part 14 standard. With its five factory-calibrated gamma models, the LX550W can be quickly adapted to different image types to optimally display other image sources (e.g. endoscopic images) along with DICOM-based X-ray images. In addition to these predefined 12-bit Look-Up Tables (LUTs), service technicians can quickly and easily customize the LUT feature to meet local requirements. In particular, the built-in On-Screen Display (OSD) can quickly adjust the monitor to the prevailing ambient brightness at the installation site.
The Picture-in-Picture (PiP) function lets users show multiple source images at the same time on the LX550W, so as to display a live signal directly on the monitor in an emergency, for instance.
