Eizo to Introduce New Color, Monochrome Monitor

Eizo Nanao will introduce the RadiForce RX211, a new 2 megapixel (1200 x 1600 native resolution) color LCD monitor that reportedly meets the increasing need of hospitals for a monitor that can display both grayscale and color images for diagnostic imaging.

With a five-year warranty, the system allows users to view color and monochrome images on one monitor. The high brightness of 750 cd/m2 and contrast ratio of 1100:1 are on a par with monochrome monitors, making the RX211 ideal for displaying both color and monochrome images compliant with the DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) Part 14 standard, according to the company.

The five-year warranty is the first for a RadiForce color monitor and is valid in every country where an EIZO subsidiary or distributor is located, aiming to ensure stable and reliable performance needed for displaying medical images.

EIZO incorporates its latest application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) into the RadiForce RX211. This ASIC contains a Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) function to compensate for luminance non-uniformity, something characteristic of all LCD panels. DUE corrects luminance uniformity errors for every grayscale tone to ensure even uniformity across the screen and from monitor to monitor. DUE also corrects chromaticity uniformity errors enabling this color monitor to display accurate monochrome images wherever on the screen. This ensures that the monitor can meet the uniformity requirements for standards such as AAPM, DIN, and EUREF.

The RadiForce RX211 comes with a CAL Switch function which has various calibration modes for different modalities such as CR, CT, and endoscopy. Switching between modes can be done by pressing a button on the front bezel or by using the bundled ScreenManager Pro for Medical software to assign a mode to a specific application so that when the application is opened it automatically displays images in the assigned mode.
