Contec Americas Inc., a global electronics manufacturer and healthcare solutions provider, has developed a new line of medical-grade monitors to meet the stringent image quality and safety requirements of clinical applications. The initial release of seven displays features DICOM Part 14 image quality and IEC 60601 compliance to medical safety and performance standards. The monitors are designed for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) looking for versatile, long life solutions suited for a wide variety of hospital and laboratory applications.
“We didn’t make any assumptions during the creation of this line,” said Jeannette Toews, Director of Displays. “We leveraged our 30 years in the medical industry and solicited feedback from customers across many modalities to identify which features and functionality were most important. In addition to image quality and performance, which are critical to accurate diagnosis, we considered the functional requirements of the equipment and ease-of-use. I’m really proud of the result, which supports a wide range of applications in the life sciences, pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and imaging specialties.”
Contec’s new clinical displays range in size from 15″ to 27″ and include 5-wire resistive touch and projected capacitive touch (PCAP) options. The “Legacy” group features a 4:3 aspect ratio. These standard resolution displays are designed to help manufacturers protect their existing investments as they transition to widescreen format. Conversely, Contec’s “Modern” line boasts a sleek, contemporary look, 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio, high brightness up to 350 nits, wide viewing angles up to 178 degrees and true-flat front, IP65 rating for easy cleaning and sanitation.
