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.

Protective Front Cover

To protect the LCD Panel installed in the Nio 2MP against any damage due to the intensive use in any kind of clinical environments, the product is delivered with an front cover. This protective panel is non-reflective coated and will be an improvement of the diagnostic experience, while keeping reflections very low.


The Nio Color 2MP LED is a 2 MegaPixel color display system with LED backlights, providing excellent image quality for confident diagnoses. Nio Color 2MP LED provides an effective display solution for a multitude of applications and modalities, including 3D PACS, 3D echo, pathology, ultrasound, orthopedic imaging, CAD, image fusion, nuclear medicine and PET.

Confident color reading

Equipped with high-bright LED backlights, Nio Color 2MP LED delivers excellent brightness and more shades of gray to detect subtle details more quickly. The unique front-of-screen sensor ensures you see consistent and precise images at all times for confident diagnoses.

An excellent investment

The Nio Color 2MP 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.
