With approximately 4.000 pixels horizontal (4K) by 2.000 pixels vertical (2K), 4K2K technology equals 4 times Full HD, with also having high values for contrast and enhanced color. Whereas 4K2K can be seen as a synonym for the new high resolution display technology, Ultra HD (3.840 × 2.160) and 4K (4.096 × 2.160) define concrete resolutions.
A revolutionary display technology for medical applications, 4K2K displays allow users to view the finest image details. This feature is especially useful in applications such as surgical and endoscopy where the smallest detail is critical and may not be visible with a Full HD resolution.
4K2K displays are ideal when using industrial endoscope tools for the internal inspection of machinery. The images shown on a 4K2K display enhances views to the degree of identifying micro-cracks. This advancement in technology will help to minimize the need to disassemble machinery for inspection, saving both time and money.
In addition to precise, high-quality images, 4K2K displays allows multiple windows to be displayed on one screen. Depending on the screen size and inputs, up to eight windows from eight different sources can be displayed on one screen at one time. For example, a multi-modality display enables medical staff to view a camera input of an endoscope, as well as vital patient stats, and other information on one screen.
The 4K2K picture-in-picture function is especially useful in diagnostic imaging as it allows medical staff to view/compare two images side-by-side in 2K by 2K resolution without any frame. This is done on a single screen without losing image quality through scaling. In addition, only one calibration and gamma setting is needed when utilizing a single screen for multiple images. This multi-modality feature is also extremely useful for industrial markets and applications such as Control Centers in Transportation, Energy, Surveillance, and Military.
