TOTOKU introduces new DICOM preset monitor

Three years ago JVCKENWOOD took over the display manufacturer TOTOKU. The expected synergies in the development and distribution of common solutions and products have set, as Marcel Herrmann, Marketing Manager Medical Displays at TOTOKU explains: "We wanted to combine our expertise and develop so gradually new areas and applications. And we succeeded. The first result was a display for endoscopy. Since our mother has brought her expertise from the broadcast sector, we have the knowledge to the specific requirements in healthcare facilities," said Herrmann. During the European Congress of Radiology March 2016, the company presented for the first time a video solution whose base is a 4K video-capable camera from the broadcast area.

The next screen, which was jointly developed by JVCKENWOOD and TOTOKU, is the GD-W213L. The high-resolution 16:9 widescreen LCD / LED monitor with a size of 21.5 inches is particularly suitable for reviewing. "He has a high contrast ratio of 1,000:1 with 1920 x 1080 pixels and thanks to an anti-reflective screen a wide viewing angle. For high quality, bright and sharp images, the LED backlight got a brightness of 250cd / m²",explains Herrmann.

Beside this the GD-W213L offers an integrated power supply, audio inputs for HDMI, DVI and RGB and a multilingual menu that allows operation in German, English, French, Spanish and Japanese. The aspect ratio is adjusted automatically. A DICOM preset ensures realistic reproduction of all xray images.
