Standard 3G-SDI, DVI and RGB Inputs enable the HD series to visualize images from the latest HD endoscopes with exceptional quality.

User-definable screen layout

The MDSC-2242 offers you the highest flexibility for multi-modality imaging - in any mix of data and video – next to each other or as Picture-In-Picture (PiP & PaP). Its wide viewing angle of 178° ensures that all this information is clearly visible for everyone in the surgery suite.

Designed for the operating suite

An anti-reflective protective front glass allows the monitor to be cleaned and disinfected (IPX1 compliant), while its fan-less design avoids the spread of contaminants in the operating room.

Remote Control for central access

The user-friendly display 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.

Multi-display imaging over IP

The 42-inch display is one of Barco's network-enabled surgical displays and offers integrated functionality (optional) for use with Nexxis digital OR, ensuring smooth distribution of uncompressed video and data over the IP network without delay.
