LED colour displays for diagnostics

The Japanese display vendor Totoku extends his i2 line-up with a two and three megapixel display. The CCL258i2 and CCL358i2 are high brightness colour displays with a very high contrast ratio.


That’s why both can be used for primary diagnosis or critical applications like thorax exams. The CCL258i2 and CCL358i2 are now the first colour models with the new LED backlight. The successor of the CCFL technology is based on semiconductors and is known from a variety of consumer products. ‘The benefits are both ecological as well as financial and qualitative nature. Compared to CCFL monitors, LED displays, save up to 20 percent electricity and have a longer life span by about 30 percent. This has a positive effect on the budget of the user.

Furthermore the CO2 emissions decrease due to reduced energy production. Specifically, those displays will use 15 percent less power than their predecessor. At the same time the lifetime almost doubles and disposal is more environmentally friendly, since LEDs ‘do not contain critical elements such as mercury’, says Marcel Herrmann, Marketing Manager at Totoku Medical displays.

Ecologically the new i2 series is also benefiting users. With the newly developed power supply, standby power consumption was reduced by 80 percent. Together with the backlight dimming function hard cash is saved. And with the full remote management administration, time is reduced.

All new i2 models are offering the new display port interface. This enables users to connect not only DVI signals or video cards but also the latest Display Port cards from various vendors, for example Matrox, ATI and NVIDIA.

Another benefit from Display Port is the improved greyscale reproduction, the firm explains. ‘Display Port offers for the first time true 10-Bit greyscales on a colour display and true 11Bit for the greyscale products.’
