Totoku Adds Medical Monitor at RSNA

Totoku was planning to show a new colour diagnostic monitor at the RSNA, the CCL214. The 21.3″ 1600 x 1200 display has 280 cd/m² of brightness when calibrated (500 cd/m² maximum) and contrast of 1,200:1. A special feature of the monitor is that it automatically sets the gamma for different parts of the display to meet the Dicom standard for monochrome images and gamma of 2.2 for colour images. Totoku said that this saved the hassle of setting up particular parts of the screen.

The monitor also has an auto text mode that detects text windows and reduces the brightness, as text windows can be too bright if the setting is suitable for diagnostics. Inputs include DVI-D and DisplayPort (which supports 10 bit input) and there is an integrated USB hub. The monitor has an integrated ‘gravity sensor’ that modifies the EDID when the monitor is rotated (although this is not supported on all graphics cards. It has an ambient light sensor and a luminance control circuit to ensure consistent performance.

The monitor can be remotely managed using Totoku software, including calibration and warnings of excessive ambient light.
