LCD Software Provides Automatic Calibration

The X-Cal Web Calibration software suite, from Double Black Imaging, allows for both complete front DICOM calibration and QA of DBI LCDs via the Web. The software contains a local agent and a network administrative package that are both easily accessible online. A DBI display can then be remotely calibrated to the DICOM gray scale from a central workstation. It can also send notifications when the LCD requires service. Additionally, users can view and save historical data on a white level, black level, calibration and conformance tests for JCAHO/medical traceability. Other features include:

-Remote calibration of each display to the DICOM gray scale display function (GSDF)

-Easy monitoring of each display from a remote central location

-Automatic Email notifications sent when service is required

-Total control of display settings, adjustments and launching of calibrations/conformance remotely

-Ability to track calibrations, hours and receive reminder alerts for non-DBI LCDs

-Scheduling of automatic calibration and conformance tests

-Immediate access to both table formatted and graphical results

-Automatic receipt of TG-18 visual tests for MQSA Compliance

-Allows for compensation of ambient light, luminance and other workstation settings

-The user may view and save historical data on white level, black level, calibration and conformance test for JCAHO/MQSA and other medical certifications

-Workstation system performance information
