NEC spread LCD uses to the operating theatre
When we say screens in the theatre, don’t let us fool you with 3D films for this is certainly not for entertainment purposes. It isn’t new to the audio-visual world that their products would be used in the public sector, however NEC have taken this to the next level with the launch of MD461OR. When it comes to the health sector Paragon Multimedia have helped in areas such as training rooms for nurses and receptions areas to make the waiting room more informative, however this 46” HD flat panel is intended for the more academic side of the hospitals.
Although NEC has previously released medically specific screens and projectors before, the latest display allows trained physicians to view both colour and DICOM images (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine).
As Shinji Nohara, Medical solutions Manager at NEC Europe explained, “In medical environments, the right technology can be crucial to saving lives and the MD461OR can help surgeons in the operating theatre make accurate and timely decisions on the spot”.
The NEC MD461OR also benefits from front screen protection from dust and water making it both durable and discerning in a life or death situation. The LCD is compatible with various connectivity options as well as having a SBC slot creating an opportunity to connect a built-in PC and easy to combine with a portable cart, making it ideal for the bustle of such a demanding environment.
With all this in mind, who’s to say that this kind of technological overlap could not be used in educational environments, as we have already seen that science students can take advantage of 3D technology. The NEC is available now and if you would like more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
