April 15, 2014 — NEC Display Solutions of America has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) market clearance for its MultiSync MD302C4 LCD.

Suitable for diagnostic image review, the 4-megapixel, 30-inch display features an in-plane switching (IPS) panel designed to provide precise color reproduction and wide viewing angles, according to the company. The clearance is the first for an NEC MultiSync Medical Series display with a GB-R LED backlight, NEC said.

MD302C4 comes with calibration to the DICOM grayscale display function (GSDF) for luminance. An integrated front sensor then constantly monitors and adjusts brightness to maintain the factory DICOM GSDF calibration, NEC said.

The display also includes a human presence sensor that can automatically dim the screen to conserve power and display life, as well as a Quick QA function for checking DICOM conformance without a computer. The monitor’s stand has four-way ergonomic functionality, including height-adjust, swivel, tilt, and pivot, the company said.

Its 14-bit lookup table provides 1,024 levels of gray out of a palette of 4,096 using a 10-bit DisplayPort or HDMI connection, according to NEC.
