NEC Display Solutions of America, a provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, has introduced the MultiSync MDC212C2 monitor, a clinical review display with a built-in calibration timer so technicians can schedule calibrations of displays during off hours.
The company reports that the 2-megapixel 21.3-inch color display includes a front sensor to maintain calibrated brightness, and a human sensor that turns off the LCD screen when not in use, saving power and extending the life of the display. The self-calibration capability does not require a computer, software, or person to complete it, and enables calibration to be prescheduled. According to the company, there is no longer a need to leave computers on all night or worry about calibration being interrupted by routine maintenance tasks.
The desktop display is built for 24/7 usage, so it can be deployed at a nurse’s station. It features a conventional format 4:3 aspect ratio and 1,600 x 1,200-resolution in an IPS panel that covers 97.9% of the sRGB color space. Other features include professional-grade backlight technologies for a long display life, 440 cd/m2 maximum brightness, 180 cd/m2 calibrated, and a QA function for checking DICOM conformance, among others.
The MultiSync MDC212C2 display is pending FDA clearance, ships with a 4-year limited parts and labor warranty, and is available as of December 2015. The MultiSync MDC212C2 display was demonstrated at RSNA 2015 in Chicago, and more information about it is available on the NEC Display Solutions website.
