Eizo will showcase its new FlexScan MX300W that offers a 4MP alternative to dual 2MP displays on a workstation. With the bundled RadiCS LE quality control software installed, a self-diagnosis function using a built-in backlight sensor periodically checks the brightness of the new monitors. When a change in the brightness is detected, the self-calibration function performs a simplified calibration compliant with the DICOM Part 14 standard to correct grayscale tones, brightness and color coordinates of the monitor. The new MX Series models come in 19-inch, 21-inch, 24-inch and 30-inch options.
The Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) function provides optimum backlight luminance uniformity, which is considered difficult to attain due to the characteristics of LCD monitors. The Backlight Saver function allows for the monitor's backlight to turn off when the screen saver is activated and the monitor's backlight to turn on when the computer comes out of the screen saver mode. This function reportedly helps to reduce power consumption when the monitor is used for a prolonged period of time. Selectable with the front panel buttons, the CAL Switch function allows for various calibration modes of different modalities such as CR, CT and endoscope images.
