Published: Jun 29, 2011

NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the Food & Drug Administration 510(k) market clearance of the 30-inch MultiSync® MD301C4 medical diagnostic display for the displaying and viewing of digital images for diagnosis by trained physicians.

The 4-megapixel MD301C4 was created for medical imaging and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) in hospitals, doctor offices, urgent care centers and other healthcare facilities. This medical-grade display includes patented technologies that make healthcare employees’ work more productive and accurate. It offers factory-adjusted DICOM calibration with self-monitoring brightness and, combined with the optional MDSVSENSOR2 color calibration sensor, the MD301C4 also supports standalone calibration and exact monitor matching, while enhancing calibration and white-point matching for outstanding DICOM GSDF conformance.

“The FDA certification for the MD301C4 is true evidence of NEC’s continued commitment to the medical industry,” said Art Marshall, Product Manager for Professional Desktop and Medical Displays at NEC Display Solutions. “The MD301C4 provides diagnostic professionals accurate imaging, productive features and exquisite screen performance, and with the backing of an FDA certification, it proves its reliability within healthcare facilities.”

A partial list of features in the MultiSync MD301C4 follows:

- 30-inch (29.8-inch VIS) widescreen P-IPS panel

- 350 cd/m² brightness (200 cd/m² calibrated) with automatic luminance control that ensures consistent brightness for the life of the display

- AmbiBright™ ambient light sensor automatically adjusts the display’s brightness based on lighting conditions

- Two DisplayPort inputs, 2 DVI-D inputs and 2 up/3 down USB hub with DisplaySync Pro™, which can function as a keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) switch
