Three megapixel greyscale display with ISD technology and FDA Mammography approval

With the greyscale display MS31i2, Totoku has introduced the first 3 Megapixel with ISD Technology. The high resolution display is suitable especially for X-ray diagnosis and thorax images, the company reports, adding: ‘With its high brightness of up to 1500 cd/m² it offers a very long backlight lifetime.’

The Totoku MS31i2 is the first display with a resolution of less than 5 Megapixel to have received Official certification for Mammography Diagnostics use from the US Food and Drug Administration. ‘This was finally possible due to the three times higher ISD resolution of 9 Sub-Megapixel,’ the company explains.

The brilliant resolution results from the newly designed and patented Independent Sub-Pixel Driving (ISD), which utilises the sub-pixel of the LCD panel independently, offering a pixel pitch of 70µm instead of the usual 210µm. ‘This offers a three times higher resolution without any disadvantage in quality,’ Totoku points out. ‘All ISD products also support the latest enhanced ISD technology, which supports more than true 10-Bit greyscale and ISD at the same time. This is further supported by the newly developed anti-reflection coating, which decreases the noise and improves the contrast and viewing angle.’

With specially developed uniformity correction the display is split into several areas, which are extensively measured, the company adds. ‘A combination of hard- and software adjusts the display now based on the measurement data to achieve a uniform brightness on the entire screen. The result is a perfectly levelled brightness on the entire screen. In addition to this the Lambda-Sentinel-II secures a constant image quality over the entire lifetime of the display. Together with the newly developed network software PM Medivisor Pro the result is a powerful solution that helps the administrator to solve trouble even before it appears to the user.’
