Monitor Delivers 3D and 2D Image Quality, Flexibility, Functionality and Reliability to the Operating Room
Panasonic, a provider of professional healthcare display and monitor solutions, today announced a new 3D medical-grade 32″ class monitor, the EJ-MDA32U-K. The new 3D monitor is fully compliant with medical equipment standards, delivers exceptional 2D and 3D image quality and can display multiple images from various sources at once. These combined features, paired with Panasonic’s renowned reliability, make the new monitor ideal for use in the surgical bubble.
“To improve patient outcomes, there is an ever increasing reliance on technology in the surgical suite,” said Scott Thie, Director, Healthcare, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. “Although this technology has many benefits, it can also create a cluttered environment. The EJ-MDA32U-K helps to improve the surgical experience by having a large screen, HD image that can be clearly viewed by all clinicians, while also providing flexibility that helps to reduce clutter. By allowing up to three images to be displayed on the screen at once – from multiple input sources – and by delivering high quality 3D and 2D HD images, we offer a single device that addresses multiple needs in the surgical suite.”
The Xpol(R) circular polarizing system used in the EJ-MDA32U-K offers several advantages over linear polarization solutions. Panasonic’s passive circular polarizing glasses and the Xpol(R) system maintain the stereoscopic effect even when the head is tilted to the left or right – a vital benefit linear polarization solutions cannot offer. This feature enables a natural viewing experience allowing several clinicians or medical students in the O.R. to watch the same 3D display. For increased flexibility, the device also supports multiple 3D formats and inputs.
Designed for the Surgical Suite
The EJ-MDA32U-K allows for up to three images, from three separate sources, to be displayed simultaneously, on one screen. The monitor supports two HD-SDI inputs, two DVI inputs and an analog input. This allows live viewing of the surgical procedure, radiological images and vital signs on a single display. This multi-function viewing capability helps reduce clutter and cabling in the surgical suite.
The EJ-MDA32U-K is fully compliant with medical equipment standards, including FDA Class 1 and UL60601-1 certification, and is additionally IPX1Protection rated with an antimicrobial surface making it easy to clean and sanitize.
Exceptional Image Quality
IPS-Pro Panel technology enables natural full HD images to be viewed from a wide selection of angles such as top, bottom, left and right. IPS-Pro also reproduces vibrant color, stereoscopic effect and perspective.
The 32″ class (1,920 x 1,080) medical-grade monitor produces HD images with over 2 million pixels and a 1200:1 contrast ratio, delivering the superb image quality needed in surgical settings. The EJ-MDA32U-K’s exceptional color reproduction and user-friendly technology also reduces eye fatigue when viewing content in 3D or 2D.
Panasonic’s EJ Family of Medical-Grade Monitors
The EJ-MDA32U-K is the first 3D capable monitor in the EJ medical grade monitor line that currently includes a 2D 26″ class monitor, the EJ-MLB26U-W, a 2D 32″ class monitor, the EJ-MLA32U-W, and a 2D 37″ class monitor, the EJ-MLA37U-W. Panasonic now offers a family of full HD medical grade monitors with vibrant color and stereoscopic effect that surpass medical electrical equipment sanitization and industry standards and allow for simultaneous viewing of multiple images.
