Advancements in surgical techniques and medical technology have allowed for the broad application of minimally invasive procedures, such as endoscopic surgery, robotic surgery, and microsurgery. With this shift, hospitals have a need for visual systems that facilitate an efficiently running OR and provide high-quality imaging for medical staff. EIZO added four new models to its lineup of 4K UHD monitors which are designed to meet the diverse needs of the modern OR, providing a consistent and highly detailed visual communication framework for the surgeon and surgical assistants, as well as surgical technologists, anesthetists, circulating nurses, and other medical staff.
During procedures, the operating surgeon needs to be able to differentiate between varying color tones. Each monitor supports the BT.2020 4K video color standard to ensure that subtle differences between shades of reds and yellows captured by BT.2020-supported cameras are distinguishable on the screen.
Two different types of signal sources can be viewed simultaneously on one screen, either side by side using PbyP (Picture-by-Picture) or one displayed within an inset window over the other with the PinP (Picture-in-Picture) function. This is useful in cases where vitals or ultrasound endoscopes need to be monitored simultaneously in addition to surgical images. Furthermore, regardless of the orientation of the endoscopic camera, medical staff can rotate the displayed image by 180 degrees or mirror it to align the image with the line of sight of surrounding assistants and surgeons.
The monitors are equipped with additional output terminals (12G-SDI, DisplayPort, and DVI), so input video can be passed through and output directly to the next monitor. The same image is displayed on multiple monitors, making information sharing among medical staff smooth in the operating room, while alleviating excess cabling.
The Auto Input Detection function automatically switches to another connected input port if the selected video signal is no longer detected. This provides a fail-safe in the case that the video signal’s input is disrupted due to a system error or other external interference.
Glare on the screen of an LCD monitor is caused when external light reflects off the protective glass and layer of air underneath at different refractive indices. CuratOR EX3242-3D and EX3242 offer optical bonding which removes the layer of air to soften reflections for a clear, highly visible image without affecting contrast.
The CuratOR EX3242-3D and EX3242 are designed to fit to portable carts or attached to ceiling mounts and EX4942 and EX5542 are ideal for mounting to the OR wall or to a ceiling suspension. Conventional large screen monitors often come with challenges during installation due to their heavy weight and limited range of mounting capabilities. The EX4942 and EX5542 boast a lighter weight (both under 30 kg) compared to conventional monitors of similar sizes, alleviating installation and maintenance concerns. All models comply with the VESA standard for flexible mounting to common fixtures.
