Monitor - Endo 4K - UHD Display EX3242

4K UHD Resolution and High Brightness

The monitor uses an energy-efficient LED backlight with a high brightness of 850 cd/m². The high resolution of 3840 x 2160 is four times the size of full HD and faithfully reproduces 4K endoscope and operating microscope images in Ultra High Definition.

Monitor - Endo 4K - Color Gamut EX3242

Wide Color Gamut for Distinguishing Tones

During procedures, the operating surgeon needs to be able to differentiate between varying color tones. The 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.
Monitor - Endo 4K - HDR - EX3242

HDR Compatibility

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a range that approximates the human perception of color and light as content is shown on a display device. The monitor is equipped with the perceptual quantization (PQ) curve and hybrid log-gamma (HLG) for supporting HDR. This ensures images from HDR-supported endoscope cameras are displayed without crushing blacks and more closely resemble the human visual system.
Monitor - Endo 4K - Design EX3242

Fully Flat Design

Operating rooms contain various medical devices that are arranged according to the type of surgery. Safe handling and a sterile environment play a major role. EIZO's surgical monitors adopt a flat design with rounded corners that promotes a safe environment and easy cleaning and disinfection. Furthermore, the front is covered with a fully flat protective glass with IP45 for protection against foreign material and splashes (the whole monitor has an IP32 rating).
Monitor - Endo 4K - Cable Cover EX3242

Cable Cover for Safety and Hygiene

With the attached cable cover, cables can be stored neatly out of sight, increasing safety and hygiene.
Monitor - Endo - Improved Durability

High Durability

The monitor has protective glass with a hardness of 9H, making it resistant to impacts. Furthermore, the monitor is equipped with optical bonding, which removes the layer of air between the LCD panel and glass. This ensures foreign materials such as dust and moisture cannot damage the LCD panel.
Monitor - Endo - Reduced Reflections

Reduced Reflections

Reflections on the screen of LCD monitors are caused when external light hits the screen and reflects off of the protective glass and layer of air at different refractive indices. Optical bonding removes the layer of air in order to lower the difference of refractive indices. This softens the reflections and produces a clear, highly visible image without affecting contrast.
Monitor - Endo - Condensation Prevention

Condensation Prevention

Optical bonding prevents condensation from forming between the LCD panel and protective glass. This allows the monitor to maintain high visibility in harsh environments.
Monitor - Endo 4K - Cable Management EX3242

Streamlined Connectivity

With BNC (12G-SDI), and DisplayPort or HDMI, up to 4K UHD images are displayed at 60 frames per second with a single cable over various modalities.

When connected via BNC (12G-SDI), stable transmission is achieved even over long distances of 30 meters.

Monitor - Endo 4K - Output EX3242

Output Images Directly to Multiple Monitors

The monitor is also equipped with BNC (12G-SDI), DisplayPort, and DVI output terminals 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.
Monitor - Endo 4K - Rotation Mirroring EX3242

180° Rotation and Mirroring

Regardless of the orientation of the endoscopic camera, you can rotate the displayed 3D image by 180° or mirror it to find the perfect operating angle.

This is suitable for matching the image with the line of sight of surrounding assistants and surgeons, improving convenience in the operating room.

Monitor - Endo 4K - Multiple Signals EX3242

View Two Signals on One Screen

Two different types of signal sources can be viewed simultaneously on one monitor side by side using the 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.
Monitor - Endo 4K - Adjust Independent EX3242

Adjust Screens Individually

When displaying two signal sources side by side on the same screen, each image's display mode (gamma 1.8 - 2.6 or DICOM Preset Mode) can be adjusted independently of the other image. This is useful for viewing two different modalities simultaneously under the correct display conditions (e.g. endoscope, CT, MRI).
Monitor - Endo 4K - Fail-Safe Display EX3242

Fail-Safe Signal Display

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.

Monitor - Endo 4K - Safe Connection

Safe and Stable Video Connection

Typically HDMI cables cannot be locked into a terminal but this monitor contains a specialized locking mechanism on its side specifically for HDMI. This ensures all cables can be locked onto the monitor for consistent and stable connection.

Rest Assured with Medical Standards

In order to realize safe and reliable monitors that can be used with confidence at any medical institution, EIZO acquires various medical and safety/EMC standards.
