Panasonic Introduces 32-Inch Medical-Grade 3-D Monitor for the Surgical Suite

Monitor delivers 3-D, 2-D image quality, flexibility, functionality and reliability to the OR

July 17, 2012 — Panasonic announced a new 3-D medical-grade 32-inch class monitor, the EJ-MDA32U-K. The new 3-D monitor is fully compliant with medical equipment standards, delivers exceptional 2-D and 3-D image quality, and can display multiple images from various sources at once. These combined features, paired with Panasonic’s renowned reliability, make the new monitor ideal for use in the surgical bubble.

“To improve patient outcomes, there is an ever-increasing reliance on technology in the surgical suite,” said Scott Thie, director, healthcare, Panasonic System Communications Co. of North America. “Although this technology has many benefits, it can also create a cluttered environment. The EJ-MDA32U-K helps to improve the surgical experience by having a large-screen, HD image that can be clearly viewed by all clinicians, while also providing flexibility that helps to reduce clutter. By allowing up to three images to be displayed on the screen at once – from multiple input sources – and by delivering high quality 3-D and 2-D HD images, we offer a single device that addresses multiple needs in the surgical suite.”

3-D Experience

The Xpol circular polarizing system used in the EJ-MDA32U-K offers several advantages over linear polarization solutions. Panasonic’s passive circular polarizing glasses and the Xpol system maintain the stereoscopic effect even when the head is tilted to the left or right. This feature enables a natural viewing experience allowing several clinicians or medical students in the operating room (OR) to watch the same 3-D display. For increased flexibility, the device also supports multiple 3-D formats and inputs.

Designed for the Surgical Suite

The EJ-MDA32U-K allows for up to three images, from three separate sources, to be displayed simultaneously, on one screen. The monitor supports two HD-SDI inputs, two DVI inputs and an analog input. This allows live viewing of the surgical procedure, radiological images and vital signs on a single display. This multi-function viewing capability helps reduce clutter and cabling in the surgical suite. 

The EJ-MDA32U-K is fully compliant with medical equipment standards, including U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Class 1 and UL60601-1 certification, and is additionally IPX1Protection-rated with an antimicrobial surface, making it easy to clean and sanitize.

Image Quality

IPS-Pro Panel technology enables natural full HD images to be viewed from a wide selection of angles, such as top, bottom, left and right. IPS-Pro also reproduces vibrant color, stereoscopic effect and perspective.

The 32-inch class (1,920 x 1,080) medical-grade monitor produces HD images with over 2 million pixels and a 1200:1 contrast ratio, delivering the high image quality needed in surgical settings. The EJ-MDA32U-K’s color reproduction and easy-to-use technology also reduces eye fatigue when viewing content in 3-D or 2-D.
