Features & Benefits


The display’s high brightness, high contrast and full HD resolution provide surgeons with excellent depth perception and the most accurate images. The MDSC-2226 presents images with unrivaled color and grayscale accuracy and with near-zero latency, making it perfectly suited for use with today’s state-of-the-art endoscopy camera systems. Thanks to its high-bright LED backlight with light output stabilization, the surgical display also ensures a long lifetime and image consistency across displays.

User-definable screen layout

The MDSC-2226 lets you combine two images - in any mix of data and video – next to each other or as Picture-In-Picture. Its wide viewing angle of 178° ensures that all this information is clearly visible for everyone in the surgery suite. With its broad input connectivity, the MDSC-2226 offers flexible multi-modality imaging (PiP & PaP) in new integrated operating rooms. The 26-inch display is also the first surgical display offering integrated functionality (optional) for use with Barco’s Nexxis for OR solution, ensuring smooth distribution of uncompressed video and data over the IP network without delay.

Remote Control for central access 

The user-friendly HD displays can easily be integrated into surgical environments with a central control system. Using the build in RS232 communication ports usersw can control the display remotely and adjust display setting including the switching of video inputs from anywhere in the operating room.

Designed for the operating suite

Barco’s MDSC-2226 allows easy cleaning and disinfection thanks to its smooth surface, splash-proof housing (front protection level IPX5), and protective screen cover. The fanless design avoids the spread of contaminants. The monitor comes with a smart cable management system that hides the cables for a clutter-free set-up. Its lightweight design allows easy mounting on surgical booms and spring arms. Available in three models, this surgical display also features a host of connectivity options and remote control.

Wide viewing angle

For optimal viewing comfort under varying light conditions, the display's ambient light sensor can be configured to switch the backlights to a lower level when the ambient light has dropped below a user-defined threshold. The wide viewing angle of 178° ensures that detailed information is visible for everyone in the surgery room.


The Barco MDSC-2226 is a 26-inch Full High Definition (1920 x 1080) monitor designed and certified for use in the digital operating room. The versatile display can visualize a wide range of analog and digital video sources, including endoscopic video, room and boom camera video, patient and surgery information, radiology and pathology images, with ultimate detail.
