April 29, 2014 — Healthcare imaging specialist Barco launched its MDSC-8258, a 58-inch surgical display designed for 4K imaging in hybrid operating rooms and interventional suites. The MDSC-8258 is equipped with a high-bright, low-power LED backlight and delivers 8 Megapixels of accurate DICOM-compliant images on a single screen.
The MDSC-8258 replaces Barco’s MDSC-8156 to offer a larger screen size (58 inches), higher brightness (700 cd/m²) and a greatly improved contrast ratio (4000:1). It provides surgeons and clinical staff with accurate, artifact-free medical images — including interventional X-ray, endoscopic video, patient monitoring, surgery information and patient data — that allow for better, more informed decisions for efficient procedures.
The MDSC-8258 features a mercury-free, low-power LED backlight, delivering high brightness combined with a longer lifetime. The slim and weight-efficient form factor further adds to the smart design of this surgical display. With a reduced bezel size, the new 58-inch display delivers a larger screen size within the same overall physical size as its smaller 56-inch predecessor, allowing full compatibility with currently deployed mounting systems.
Barco’s MDSC-8258 comes in three versions: Next to the standard model (MDSC-8258 L), the display is also available with a redundant power supply (MDSC-8258 RL) or with a redundant power supply plus protective front glass (MDSC-8258 RLG).
