Boasting an extra-slim design and promising easy-to-use features, the latest offering from Sony Electronics’ Medical Systems is a 27-inch, high-resolution surgical monitor available in either a digital/analog (LMD-2765MD) and digital-only (LMD-2760MD) version.

Ideal for use in a range of environments—including operating rooms, medical centers, clinics, and doctor’s offices—the monitor fits in the same chassis footprint as most 26-inch models, so facilities can use existing current carts or boom arms. The designs also allows for use in either a cart system or ceiling-mounted configuration.

The new monitor displays full HD (1920×1080) images from surgical endoscopic or laparoscopic camera systems and other compatible medical imaging systems. According to Sony, it features the brightest panel in use on a surgical monitor, with a brightness of 1000 cd/m2 (maximum brightness of 800 cd/m2 at D65 adjustment). The front panel is water-resistant and is designed for easy cleaning; it can be wiped down using commonly available cleaning solutions.

Pricing for both versions of the monitor, which will be available for sale in November, has not yet been announced.
