October 5, 2007 - Medical display maker Barco introduced its new 24-inch MDSC-2124 wide-screen surgical display solution with full high-definition resolution this week at the ACS Clinical Congress in New Orleans. The display will also be shown at the 2007 ASA.
The MDSC-2124 builds on the technology of its 19-inch MDSC-1119 display and introduces a wide-screen (16:10) LCD panel, featuring full HD resolution (1920 x 1200). The company says the bright, high-resolution LCD panel allows surgeons using high-definition endoscopy cameras to see very good panoramic views and improved depth perception. The device also features broad input connectivity, offering a versatile display solution for HD endoscopy cameras, room and boom cameras, ultrasound, PACS and patient information.
"The new MDSC-2124 has been explicitly designed towards HD endoscopy and HD imaging within the digital operating room," said Johan Stockman, market director at Barco. "The display offers the fastest image transmission and the highest broadcast-quality imaging available today."
To ensure excellent performance under the high ambient light conditions of the operating theater, the MDSC-2124 is fitted with the latest generation high-bright, high-contrast color LCD technology. The display's color gamut and wide viewing angle give surgeons the information and the color accuracy they need to perform surgery with maximum efficiency, even when viewing the screen from an angle. Surgical staff can also select Picture-in-Picture or Picture-by-Picture views from multiple input signals, giving clinicians access to vital information from multiple sources at key moments during surgical procedures.
Barco's MDSC-2124 was developed to meet stringent patient safety and design requirements relating to medical devices used in the Operating Room environment. The advanced display features a sealed, fanless design, which avoids the spread of contaminants in the sterile field. The MDSC-2124 also includes a low-voltage, external DC power supply that can easily be routed through a boom structure up to 100 feet away from the display. The thin monitor with cable cover takes up a minimum of space in the OR's equipment-intensive environment. Its low weight and VESA compatibility make it easy to move and mount onto a cart or boom.
