Barco launches 58-inch 4K medical display for real-time imaging in the operating room
Posted on Tuesday, April 29, 2014
Kortrijk, Belgium, 29 April 2014 – Healthcare imaging specialist Barco announces the launch of its MDSC-8258, a 58” surgical display designed for 4K imaging in hybrid operating rooms and interventional suites. The MDSC-8258 is equipped with a high-bright, low-power LED backlight and delivers 8 MegaPixels of accurate DICOM-compliant images on a single screen.
“Surgical teams are faced with a growing need for imaging solutions that centralize all critical information on one screen and make it visible to everyone in the room,” comments Johan Stockman, Barco’s VP Strategic Marketing Surgical Imaging. “The MDSC-8258’s large and Ultra-High Definition LCD screen offers a more efficient and flexible alternative to individual multi-monitor configurations deployed in interventional environments.” 

High performance in a slim form factor 
The MDSC-8258 replaces Barco’s MDSC-8156 to offer a larger screen size (58”), higher brightness (700 cd/m²), and a greatly improved contrast ratio (4000:1). It provides surgeons and clinical staff with accurate, artifact-free medical images – including interventional x-ray, endoscopic video, patient monitoring, surgery information, and patient data – that allow for better, more informed decisions for efficient procedures. 

The MDSC-8258 features a mercury-free, low-power LED backlight, delivering high brightness combined with a longer lifetime. The slim and weight-efficient form factor further adds to the smart design of this surgical display. With a reduced bezel size, the new 58” display delivers a larger screen size within the same overall physical size as its smaller 56” predecessor, allowing full compatibility with currently deployed mounting systems. 

Barco’s MDSC-8258 comes in three versions: next to the standard model (MDSC-8258 L), the display is also available with a redundant power supply (MDSC-8258 RL) or with a redundant power supply plus protective front glass (MDSC-8258 RLG).
