If You Sell to Hospitals, LG’s New 55” Will Help You
LG Business Solutions announced a new 55-inch surgical monitor, the 55MH5K, that’s native 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution and the ability to display multiple images at once in a 2×2 onscreen grid. It’s specifically designed for surgical centers, general operating rooms and hybrid operating rooms and is designed to withstand the rigors of such environments.
One of the features of the 680-nit display is a Failover Input Switch that automatically switches to a secondary feed if the main feed is unavailable or disconnected. Additionally, users can choose from multiple viewing modes, including picture-in-picture, a 2×2 grid with up to four feeds (4PBP), or a three-way split screen with one main portrait-oriented feed and two smaller landscape-oriented feeds (3PBP).
The display also offers the ability to show the incoming feed in reverse or rotate it 180 degrees based on the surgeon’s preferences. With support for 12G-SDI signals, installations can utilize long-distance 4K transmission over a single coaxial cable.
The display’s anti-fingerprint and anti-reflection glass achieves IP 45 protection, while the body cabinet also offers IP 32 protection from liquid intrusion and contact with solid objects. The LG IPS (in-plane switching) LCD panel provides a 178-degree viewing angle both horizontally and vertically, so clarity is maintained for all viewers as they move around the room. HDR10 compatibility and a DCI-P3 color gamut of 86 percent ensures all images are presented as intended.
With one input and output each for DisplayPort, DVI and 12G-SDI signals, plus an input for HDMI, the display is compatible with virtually any system design, peripheral device, or surgical modality source.
