RED.ES orders Barco’s Coronis diagnostic display systems for Spanish installations

Barco : 07 March, 2008  (New Product)
Spanish public company RED.ES has ordered a record number of Barco’s Coronis diagnostic display systems that will be used for the introduction and development of Picture Archiving and Communication Systems in hospitals across Spain.
Barco’s partner in Spain, Telefonica Soluciones, is responsible for the delivery and installation. Deliveries for this euros 4 million project have for the greater part been completed.

To support IT development, the Spanish Industry Ministry established RED.ES, a public company that helps and advises the local government authorities (Comunidades Autonomas) with their purchases of IT equipment.

The contract consists of a record number of medical displays to help accelerate the country’s on-going PACS program in the regions of Murcia, Cantabria, La Rioja, Galicia, Navarra and Castilla-Leon. RED.ES selected Barco’s partner Telefonica Soluciones to supply Barco’s Coronis product line and MediCal QAWeb software.

“Diagnostic displays are extremely important in medical imaging,” explained Francois Le Guen of Telefonica Soluciones. “It is useless to invest in a full Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) without the means to properly display the images. The benefits of a well-planned display deployment include improved workflow, better adoption and increased physician confidence. Our goal is to deliver high-quality products that provide the best patient care possible; this is why we selected Barco to be our partner. As the market leader, Barco manufactures the most reliable medical displays available. Of equal importance is the company’s unsurpassed service and support programme. With a warranty of up to five years, Barco sets the standard in customer care.”

“This multi-million euro contract reinforces Barco’s leadership in the diagnostic display market in Spain and in Europe in general,” stated Luc Colle, regional director EMEA at Barco’s Medical Imaging Division. The order consists of a large number of high-quality Barco display systems, including the grayscale Coronis 5MP, 3MP and 2MP, and the Coronis Color 2MP.

Barco’s high-end diagnostic displays combine the highest brightness and contrast with precision and performance. Barco’s ‘virtual’ hinge system makes the individual heads move and track as a single integrated system when they are adjusted, resulting in optimal usability and reader comfort.

Deliveries include both single-head and dual-head configurations. All displays come with MediCal QAWeb, Barco’s secure, online tool for automated calibration and quality assurance. The intervention-free softcopy solution allows easy asset management from a remote location, resulting in a maximum uptime of the PACS workstations.
