Sony has launched the LMD-X2705MD and LMD-X2700MD 4K HDR surgical monitors

Sony has introduced two new 27-inch 4K HDR surgical monitors that offer exceptional picture quality plus intuitive operation and flexible integration within today’s clinical environments.

The LMD-X2705MD and LMD-X2700MD display bright, high-quality 2D colour images with true 4K UHD resolution from endoscopic/laparoscopic cameras and other compatible medical imaging systems.

Both monitors can also display High Dynamic Range (HDR) images when connected to an Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) input signal from a camera, accurately reproducing a wide colour palette and extended range of brightness levels without clipping bright highlights or losing shadow details.

Lower-resolution input signals are automatically upscaled to 4K with four times the pixel count of Full HD, giving surgical teams an optimal view of HD or Standard Definition sources.

Impressive picture quality is complemented by simple, logical operation that allows OR teams to focus on the task at hand. Fuss-free operation is realised by the monitor's intuitive control panel and LED navigation, allowing easy operation, even in dark environments.

Both models offer a choice of DP, HDMI and DVI input signal options, with the LMD-X2705MD adding 3G/HD/SD-SDI connectivity. If signals from one input port are accidentally interrupted, the monitor's input switches automatically to the second port as a fail-safe measure.

4K is becoming increasingly prevalent in the OR and hospital consulting rooms, with a widening choice of image acquisition and recording solutions on the market

For greater flexibility in surgical applications there’s a convenient choice of display modes including Mirror Image, Side-by-Side, Picture-in-Picture, and Picture-out-Picture that are instantly available via push-button selection.

“4K is becoming increasingly prevalent in the OR and hospital consulting rooms, with a widening choice of image acquisition and recording solutions on the market” said John Herman, product marketing manager at Sony Professional Europe.

“The LMD-X2705MD and LMD-X2700MD are a compelling choice for any hospital that’s already introducing an end-to-end 4K surgical imaging workflow – or thinking about making the transition to greater definition, colour and contrast very soon.”

The compact, ergonomic design of the LMD-X2705MD and LMD-X2700MD is ideal for integration in modern clinical environments, while integration is simplified with a choice of AC or DC powering options and neat cable management.

The ergonomic, easy-to-hold design allows simple adjustment of monitor position by hand. IPX5 rating resists accidental water and liquid splashes, while hygiene is simplified by the 27-inch panel’s edge-to-edge flush design.
