Panasonic 3D Medical Monitor with Unpronounceable Name
Panasonic (Japan) today announced a new 3D medical-grade 32" class monitor named EJ-MDA32U-K (not a gift for their salesmen, that name!). The new 3D monitor is fully compliant with medical equipment standards, delivers exceptional 2D and stereoscopic 3D image quality and can display multiple images from various sources at once. The new monitor uses passive circular polarized technology (i.e. sudh as RealD ones), so it can be used with cheap throw-away 3D glasses. Resolution is 1920x1080 pixels.
"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."
Design with O.R. in mind
The EJ-MDA32U-K allows for up to three stereoscopic 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.
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.
