Barco and Hitachi Displays cooperate to offer In-Plane Switching LCD technology

Barco : 26 November, 2007  (New Product)
Barco and Hitachi Displays have announced an exclusive cooperation that will bring the latest In-Plane Switching LCD technology (IPS-Pro) to the healthcare imaging market.
The world’s first diagnostic display system based on IPS-Pro technology is Barco’s new Coronis Fusion 6MP DL. Compared to conventional LCD architectures, IPS-Pro delivers higher brightness, richer contrast and a significantly wider viewing angle.

“We are pleased to partner with the world’s leading expert in medical display technology”, says Yoshiyuki Imoto, president and CEO of Hitachi Displays. “Barco’s selection of IPS-Pro marks a new phase in the acceptance of this superior technology in highly demanding professional applications such as medical imaging, where image fidelity under a wide viewing angle is crucial. We are confident that our collaboration will open a gateway into the healthcare market, which is strategically important and holds substantial growth potential for our company.”

“Hitachi has a history of innovation in high-quality Liquid Crystal Display technology and IPS-Pro represents another major breakthrough in diagnostic imaging“, comments Paul Matthijs, senior vice president of Barco’s Medical Imaging Division. “Integrated into our high-grade Coronis Fusion 6MP DL system, IPS-Pro provides radiologists with unprecedented colour image quality, a DICOM-calibrated luminance of 800cd/m2, and a contrast ratio of 800:1 over the widest possible viewing angle. This combination of colour imaging capabilities with performance characteristics previously only possible on dedicated grayscale LCDs, sets the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL apart as the most effective solution for diagnostic imaging available today.”
