March 3, 2015 — Barco announced the launch of a new diagnostic display system, Nio 5MP LED. Cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for radiology and mammography and featuring a number of image-enhancing technologies, the 5MP display provides excellent image quality for confident diagnoses.

Bright LED backlights help radiologists see many more shades of gray. Furthermore, Nio 5MP LED comes with a unique front-of-screen sensor, which works seamlessly with Barco’s online MediCal QAWeb solution for automated quality assurance and on-demand calibration. Additionally, Uniform Luminance Technology makes subtle details more noticeable more quickly, resulting in reduced windowing and leveling time. 

Nio 5MP LED offers a high-bright LCD panel with a display resolution of 2560 x 2048 pixels and a Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM)-calibrated luminance of 500 cd/m² throughout its entire lifetime. It offers accurate grayscales and a high contrast ratio (1200:1) to ensure confident image reading. As part of the Nio family, the new 5MP display comes with integrated front sensor and uniform luminance technology, ensuring fast power-up and long-term luminance stability and uniformity. 

On-demand image quality checks ensure maximum uptime of the display. Additionally, Barco’s LED backlights produce less heat, requiring less cooling and reducing the overall operational costs for the hospital.
