Features & Benefits


The Coronis 5MP grayscale display offers highest performance in picture quality while calibrated to 500cd/m2 and stabilized by the BLOS technology throughout its entire lifetime. The built in system for uniformity correction allows enhanced diagnostic precision with the luminance spread envenly over the full screen surface. Thanks to the integrated I-Guard Technology continous DICOM-compliant imaging is available.


BLOS is the Backlight Output Stabilization technology, which inside the Nio Line allows the use of the displays for a wide range of medical imaging applications. BLOS guarantees fast power-up and continuously stabilizes the luminance output of the LCD’s backlight to make sure that there is no change in your diagnostic confidence for the time of entire use of the product. This significantly improves the overall optical efficiency of your Nio display system and provides long-term image stability.

Uniformity Correction

As todays LCD Technology is still suffering from non-uniform behavior across the screen Barco has developed the Uniform Luminance Correctioon Technology to compensate this negative effect.  This is the reason why we can guarantee DICOM compliance across the entire display area. To avoid false interpreted medical  images due to non uniformity this technology is a key feature of todays high end medical displays as they are delivered under the brand of Barco.

Ambient Light Compensation

The Ambient Light Compensation (ALC) is another important feature of the Coronis products. The diagnostic competence is very much influenced in a very negative way by changing ambient light conditions in the reading room. To compensate this the ALC was developed. This systems measures the ambient luminance and compares it to preset thresholds that characterize the reading room. A notification to the QA administrator can be done and the DICOM curve can be corrected in realtime.

Automated Quality Assurance 

The latest version of MediCal QAWeb, combined with the unique I-Guard sensor, ensures fully automated image Quality Assurance with no need for human intervention. MediCal QAWeb tracks, maintains and logs viewing performance, automates QA tasks, initiates display system calibration and establishes an accurate DICOM Look-Up Table calibration.


The Coronis 5MP is a high-grade grayscale display system with a resolution of 2560 x 2048, and can fulfil the demands for highest quality primary diagnosis in the Mammography reading. Beside PACS networks the display is used in dedicated imaging solutions such as chest radiology and mammography imaging.
