Ikegami's New 4K Medical Monitors Demonstrated at Paroco´s Endoscopy Training Event
An advance prototype of Ikegami's latest medical monitor, the 32 inch 4K-UHD made its European debut recently during three surgical training days in Novi Sad, Serbia.
Organised by Paroco, Ikegami's medical distributor for Serbia and the southern Balkans, the training sessions gave young doctors the opportunity to perform endoscopic keyhole surgery on live subject, in this case an anaesthetized pig. Experience of this kind is an essential requirement before a doctor is allowed to carry out such operations on human patients. The procedure is performed on a minimally invasive basis via three keyhole access points: one for the surgical instruments and two for miniature cameras.
Two endoscope equipment towers were used in the demonstration, each with a video monitor display positioned directly in front of the surgeon. 32 inch has proved to be the optimal screen size for this application and 4K-UHD resolution is ideal at that viewing distance.
Designed to reveal the smallest details of life, the 32 inch model is an 800 cd/m2 high-brightness wide-dynamic-range display fully optimized for use in operating rooms. The monitor's IP35-rated front and IP32-rated rear panels combined with low heat generation (fanless) ensure protection against dust and water ingress during operations and post-surgery cleaning.
Like its 27 inch equivalent (MLW-2750UHD), the 32 inch model includes a range of features designed to maximize its usefulness in a surgical and medical-training environment. Images from two separate sources can be displayed in picture-beside-picture or picture-in-picture mode.
An image enhancement function delivers wide dynamic range reproduction extending into dark and bright areas of the incoming video. Auto brightness and contrast stabilization ensures consistently accurate shading. Settings are easily adjustable and can be stored in eight user-specific or project-specific memory groups. Viewing angle is a very wide 178 degrees (horizontal and vertical).
Ikegami expects to launch the 32 inch 4K monitor on European market during Q4 2019.
