September 17, 2007 — Scientific Vision Systems (SVS) announced introduction of the new SONY LMD-2450MD 24-inch medical flat panel LCD monitor.
The monitor is specifically designed for use in medical applications and delivers extremely precise color reproduction, high brightness, and high contrast images thanks to the super-wide aperture WUXGA LCD panels.
The LMD-2450MD has an advanced full 10-bit digital video signal processor to produce accurate, lifelike images with smooth natural gradations. The monitor also includes a second calibration so that white balance is maintained at consistent color temperatures throughout all grayscale levels.
The LMD-2450MD allows medical users to define multiple display modes such as picture-in-picture and split screen (side-by-side images). The display modes can also be used for special applications such as viewing both live video and captured images simultaneously for more comprehensive coverage of the surgical procedure.
Using an advanced imaging algorithm, the LMD-2450MD performs a sophisticated Interlace-to-Progresssive (I/P) conversion. The method combines adjacent pixels above, below and in the diagonal directions of the image areas where there is movement. The algorithm then inserts a natural pixel to create the absent lines.
The LMD-2450MD monitor can accept almost any signal ranging from SD to HD video. Users can also connect output from a PC via the monitor’s DVI-D or HD15 connectors. In addition to the standard inputs, the monitor offers users four optional input adapters for use in its expansion slot. This input flexibility allows users to view images from a variety of medical equipment sources including endoscopes. The monitor also provides parallel and serial control (including via Ethernet) as standard.
