Features & Benefits


The new 21.3" LCD/LED panel with High Brightness provides a calibrated luminance of 400cd/m2 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.


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.

Medical QAWeb 

This innovative and state of the art industry's first and most complete secured online service guarantees maximum diagnostic confidence and uptime of your PACS display systems. Beside DICOM calibration and automated Quality assurance also the asset management of the displays and trouble shooting are included. The reporting according to the requirements of existing regulations, such as the German DIN6868-57, is another important part of this software solution combined with the Barco Displays for Diagnostic Use.


The Nio Color 3MP is the professional display solution for a wide variation of applications and modalities, including 3D PACS, 3D echo, pathology, ultrasound, orthopedic imaging, CAD, image fusion, nuclear medicine,  MRI, perfusion, spectroscopy and PET imaging. The outstanding picture performance allows the use in Multi-Modality Systems.

An excellent investment

Using energy-efficient LED backlights, Nio Color 3MP LED is as low in power consumption as it is high in brightness. Because it uses less power, the display produces less heat and requires less cooling, which impacts maintenance and operational costs. Additionally, the LED backlights offer a long lifetime - even at high brightness - providing an excellent return on your investment.
