New Large Monitor Manager from EIZO Simplifies the Workflow of DoctorsKarlsruhe, )
In modern operating rooms there is an increasing number of varied image sources which need to be displayed at the same time. Therefore, there is a trend in showing the various images with the assistance of an image management system on only one monitor. This considerably simplifies steps needed, e.g. in the control room, allows work to be done more quickly and without getting tired, and saves space.
The LMM0801-L has 8 video inputs which can be shown in any combination on a 4 megapixel monitor. As 4 megapixel monitors, EIZO provides the models RadiForce RX430 and MX300W. Compared with EIZO's existing image manager LMM56800, which is designed for an 8 megapixel monitor, the number of inputs is reduced to enable a less costly overall solution.
The Large Monitor Manager can very flexibly carry the various image signals together. Six inputs of this image manager can process DVI signals at resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 including full HD (1920 x 1080). Two of the video inputs can selectively process analog signals, including PAL and NTSC, or DVI signals. The LMM0801-L enables the concurrent display of various image sources on the connected monitor in user-defined layouts. Various image compositions suitable for the relevant application can be defined in advance and the optimum display mode can be called up for the current step in the procedure with the mouse connected to the LMM0801-1.
In addition, the Large Monitor Manager has a keyboard mouse switch (KMS) function. With just one keyboard and one mouse, up to eight different applications and pictures from different computers can be displayed and operated. For the KMS function 8 USB (B) downstream channels are available to the image source processors. The local keyboard and mouse is connected using USB (A). In addition, further USB ports are available to connect external devices.
Another important property of the LMM0801-L is its very short power-up time, the standard configuration is displayed just 3 seconds after you switch on the monitor. This guarantees immediate availability, even after a power failure. A monitoring function for all the relevant components of the device and the possibility to communicate with the higher level of the system allows high functional safety.
The new Large Monitor Manager is designed in accordance with the special requirements of the medical field, so an ambient temperature of up to 45° C is permitted and the electrical safety is tested to IEC 60601-1. In addition, electronic components are selected which are available in the long term to guarantee long-term system continuity.
Production of the LMM0801-L is planned for the start of 2011. The availability can differ depending on country, so please contact the EIZO subsidiary or distributor in your country for details. Visitors to Medica 2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany will be able to get a first look at the product at the EIZO stand, Hall 10, #G41.
