Barco is releasing three new video cards (aka display controllers) specifically designed for medical image processing applications. Designed to run multiple monitors, the MXRT-x400 line features ATI FirePro 3D technology, DisplayPort and DVI interfaces, and compatibility with the latest OpenGL and DirectX graphics rendering software. The new cards are being showcased at RSNA 2010 in Chicago this week, and will be made available for purchase early next year.
The mid-range MXRT-5400 and the high-end MXRT-7400 can drive three displays with just one PCIe slot, which makes them ideally suited for PACS workstations combining two diagnostic displays (or one seamless ‘Fusion’ display) with a third monitor for patient lists or 3D viewing applications. This â€œall-in-oneâ€ approach not only saves space on the PC, it also simplifies installation and significantly reduces power consumption. Fitted with 2GB of memory and an ultra-fast GPU, the top-of-the-line MXRT-7400 presents users with unmatched processing power for large medical datasets.
The compact MXRT-2400 offers a perfect solution for set-ups where a low-profile workstation is needed for space efficiency. The energy-friendly board can drive two 5-MegaPixel displays at full refresh rates.
