‘The IPS panel provides accurate colour reproduction across the full colour spectrum with smooth image graduation well into the deep red. Video can be viewed in a Standard Picture switch setting or Picture Enhancement Function can be selected. Picture Enhancement mode delivers Wide Dynamic Range,’ the firm explains,’ to ensure high quality display reproduction right through to the dark and bright areas of the incoming video signals. The MLW-2750HD is ideal for use with Ikegami MKC series cameras, providing optimal picture quality with the 4K UHD MKC-750UHD and Full HD models. Auto brightness/contrast stabilisation functions are included to ensure the most accurate and consistent shading possible for medical imaging. Gamma options and DICOM Part 14 standard configuration can also be selected when required. A user pre-set function allows easy adjustment and storage of the display mode and image setup parameters.’

Additional technical parameters include 10-bit colour display, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 14 millisecond typical on/off response time and fan-less cooling. Weighing only 7.7kg, the MLW-2750UHD makes the system useable with medical transport carts, and more.

Set in hygienic silver-grey housing the monitor also has anti-reflection and anti-finger mark screen surface. The IP35 rated front panel and IP32 rated rear panel ensure high-level protection from dust and water during surgery and post-operation cleaning. ‘A wide range of interface facilities are provided, including full compatibility with 4K UHD HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort (Ver.1.2) for UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) at 50/60Hz refresh rate,’ the maker continues. ‘HD resolution 3G-SDI and DVI-D are also supported. An RS-232C remote control port is provided plus a USB port for hardware configuration.’ The MLW-2750 is being demonstrated at Medica 2017 as part of a complete system, including Ikegami's latest generation 4K UHD medical cameras.
