Planar Introduces First 16 Megapixel, 30-Inch Grayscale Medical Display

Planar Systems Inc. unveiled at RSNA its new family of high-resolution grayscale displays, the Planar Dome Zx series, including the Dome Z16, reportedly the world’s first 16-mexapixel, 30-inch single grayscale diagnostic imaging display.

Intended for medical applications requiring the finest precision and image quality, the new Dome Z16 delivers images on a single piece of true 10-bit high-resolution grayscale glass without the split-bezel of a standard dual monitor configuration.

The 30-inch display size and design of the Dome Z16 is said to offer seamless side-by-side digital study comparisons, less panning and zooming and ultimate flexibility for innovative interface design — important for digital mammography screening workflow.

The Planar Dome Z16 is a native, 10-bit-per-pixel liquid crystal display with the ability to simultaneously display 1024 shades of grayscale. Planar’s strong partnership with NVIDIA Corp. has reportedly made the 10-bit interface between application and display system simple and intuitive with the additional advantage of using professional NVIDIA Quadro series graphics cards.

The Dome Z16 dual DVI input interface provides backwards compatibility with legacy installations as well as new installations on commercially available graphics adapters. Other features include: 750 cd/m2 max brightness, 500 cd/m2 calibrated brightness; 750:1 contrast ratio; 1024 simultaneous grayscale palette from 4096 unique shades of gray; /- 85 degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle; 2x DVI-D (Dual Link); native 10-bits per pixel, single pixel; and open architecture with 10-bit graphic boards.

Pending FDA clearance, the Planar Dome Z16 will be available through medical reseller partners and OEMs.
