DBI to Focus on Higher Level Imaging
Double Black Imaging's P-Series of LCDs consist of a 2MP monochrome and color, a 3MP monochrome and color and a 5 MP monochrome and color LCD for mammography. The line will reportedly include higher brightness levels on each LCD, digital uniformity control, 12-Bit processing, a retractable front sensor for true DICOM calibration, a backlight sensor for luminance control and bonded protective panels. DBI will be bundling these LCDs with a high-speed graphic controller (PCI-X or PCI-e) as well as including X-CAL calibration software.
Double Black Imaging is also including X-Cal Calibration software, their proprietary package for Automatic DICOM calibration and display quality assurance, with all “P” Series LCD Systems. This allows for both complete QA of their LCDs and Front DICOM calibration. X-Cal consists of two components, a local agent package and a network administrative package. Paired together with their displays, this software and hardware combination allows each display to be remotely calibrated to the DICOM gray scale display function and monitored from a central workstation, send notifications to the central workstation or administrator when the LCD requires service and allow the administrator to adjust and perform DICOM 3.14 Calibration on each LCD from the remote location.
Other functions X-Cal offers include: automatic calibration and conformance tests, graphical results, table formatted reporting of data for future use, the ability to schedule intervals between auto-calibrations, allows for compensation of ambient light, ability to adjust luminance and other workstation settings, the user may view and save historical data on white level, black level, calibration and conformance test for JCAHO/medical traceability. Double Black Imaging is including both pieces of this software package free of charge with the purchase of their LCD systems.
