To enable precise colour
matching between different screens, Sony’s ChromaTru technology eliminates
inaccuracies that result from variations in LCD colour levels and adjusts
white balance to deliver consistency throughout all grey-scale levels. The
medical monitor also incorporates a super-wide aperture (1920 x 1200) WUXGA
LCD panel to deliver crisp, high-contrast images.
To suit the medical
context and the type of image being monitored, users can choose from 0% to
20% over-scan sizes, and aspect ratios can be set to either 16:9 or 4:3 to
match the input signal. In addition, both CRT 2.2 and DICOM-standard gamma
curve settings are available.
The monitor can display images from a
variety of medical equipment sources, including endoscopes. It accepts a
wide range of SD, HD and PC signals, and provides parallel and serial
control (including via Ethernet) as standard.
“The LMD-2450MD represents a leap forward in medical imaging technology,”
concludes Felip Garcia, European Product Marketing Manager, Sony Europe. “It
allows healthcare professionals to view still and moving pictures with high
definition clarity and accurate image reproduction — helping them to carry
out medical procedures with pinpoint precision.”
