A spiffy new display from Siemens:
With up to 400 cd/m2 (candelas per square meter), the new 3-megapixel SMD 21310 flat panel display for medical applications is especially bright and high-contrast. The high-resolution 21″ display from Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) is suitable for color displays as well as for hybrid applications with color and gray-scale displays. Siemens is the only manufacturer to offer constant luminance over a typical service life of 10,000 hours, corresponding to approximately five years. The backlighting of the new display has a service life of 50,000 hours.
The monitor is pre-calibrated at the factory and has fully automated stability in compliance with the Dicom standard. Constant luminance is ensured by the additional Integrated Stability System (ISS) by means of a photo sensor in the center of the backlighting. This sensor is automatically calibrated when the display is calibrated. With five preset, practice-oriented look-up tables, the display can be adapted to local lighting conditions and then automatically calibrated.
