Barco is launching its new 58″ 4K surgical display, helping to bring the high-resolution video standard to top-end operating suites everywhere. The MDSC-8258 is a full color screen and will display DICOM-compliant color and grayscale images at 700 cd/m² brightness and 4000:1 contrast ratio, making it practical for simultaneous display of live fluoroscopy, pre-operative images, and live video such as from an endoscope.
The resolution of 4K monitors is typically 3840 x 2160, which is about four times the number of pixels of 1080p displays. To handle so much data, the monitor requires a dual DVI input, which it has two sets of for using different video sources.
More from the announcement:
The MDSC-8258 features a mercury-free, low-power LED backlight, delivering high brightness combined with a longer lifetime. The slim and weight-efficient form factor further adds to the smart design of this surgical display. With a reduced bezel size, the new 58” display delivers a larger screen size within the same overall physical size as its smaller 56” predecessor, allowing full compatibility with currently deployed mounting systems.
Barco’s MDSC-8258 comes in three versions: next to the standard model (MDSC-8258 L), the display is also available with a redundant power supply (MDSC-8258 RL) or with a redundant power supply plus protective front glass (MDSC-8258 RLG).
