Benefits of 4K Displays
With approximately 4,000 pixels horizontal (4K) by 2,000 pixels vertical (2K), 4K / Ultra HD technology equals 4 times Full HD and offers high values for contrast and enhanced color. 4K technology can be seen as a synonym for the new high resolution display technology sometimes referred to as Ultra HD (3840 × 2160) and / or 4K (4096 × 2160).
A revolutionary display technology for medical applications, 4K 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.
4K displays are ideal when using industrial endoscope tools for the internal inspection of machinery. The images shown on a 4K 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, 4K displays allows multiple windows to be displayed on one screen. Depending on the screen size and inputs, up to four windows from four 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 stats, and other patient information on one screen.
The 4K Picture-by-Picture function is especially useful in diagnostic interpretation. This function allows medical staff to view / compare two images side-by-side on a single screen in 2K by 2K resolution without losing image quality. In addition, only one calibration and gamma setting are needed when utilizing a single screen for multiple images. This multi-modality feature is also useful for industrial applications such as Control Centers in Transportation, Energy, Surveillance and Military markets.
Our 4K High Brightness monitors provide optimal color reproduction and a high contrast ratio – making these displays ideal for medical and industrial imaging applications. Even when exposed to strong ambient light, a consistent visibility is guaranteed.
Optical Bonding is an option we offer to enhance the viewing quality of a display by reproducing a higher contrast and higher color depth. The bonding of the LCD module with the touch screen or protection glass reproduces a more vibrant image. The advantages are a clearer picture, reduced glare and greater resistance against breakage under mechanical pressure.

Definition of IP69K in EN 60529 and DIN 40 050 Part 9:
The number 6 indicates complete impermeability and therefore protection of the electrical components against the ingress of solid particles and dust.
"9K" means that the enclosure can withstand high pressure and steam cleaning without water ingress.
On request, Canvys can supply displays in compliance with the IP69K standard which can be fitted with a projected capacitive (PCAP) touch screen. The multi-touch monitors can be operated with two or more fingers, either with bare hands or with latex gloves. For the necessary robustness, the screens are made of single-pane or laminated safety glass up to 4 mm thick. They can be used in a temperature range of -20°C to +70°C.
Production equipment in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries is subject to very strict hygiene and impermeability requirements. When products come into direct contact with production machinery, particularly strict standards apply in terms of cleaning and robustness. Cleaning must be carried out frequently and may involve steam jets and various chemicals. High temperature fluctuations should also be expected. All these factors require the monitors to have high ingress protection, which places high demands on the development process.
In collaboration with partner firms, Canvys development engineers have designed a bonding technology that allows the displays to be fitted in stainless steel or die-cast enclosures to meet the IP69K specification.
These special monitors can be used in applications such as bottling systems, pharmaceutical production, washing systems and the frozen food industry.
Why Retrofit Displays?
Your application is long-standing and still works perfectly. But the imaging hardware is now obsolete. It’s only a matter of time before these devices fail. And if these screens are not directly threatened by device failure (obsolescence), they no longer meet the latest requirements for a Human Machine Interface (HMI) or modern operating concepts. In order to ensure the continued functioning of your still profitable application, you are required to replace these monitors!
The challenge that needs to be mastered
Your software applications, which have been running reliably for years, are certainly optimized for the earlier classic standard screen formats 4:3 or 5:4. The trend in monitor development, however, is that this “old” format is disappearing more and more from the market and predominantly large-format displays in the 16:9 aspect ratio (or the now also decreasing 16:10 format) are available. Porting your applications to the new formats would mean that they would have to be completely reprogrammed. For some companies this is too expensive and the expected ROI (Return On Investment) of the running applications is simply pointless.
Canvys R Series as Retrofit Solution
This is where Canvys starts its retrofit LFM series: The newly developed devices correspond to the latest display technology, but are available in the classic formats 4:3 or 5:4. These monitors can therefore be used in the case described above.
Example of the modern operating concept
An integrated projected capacitive (PCAP) or resistive touch screen provides an HMI (Human Machine Interface) which allows modern finger or glove operation. With additional functions such as True Flat design and many other customization options, previously mentioned customers receive a product that further increases ROI.
Summary of the Advantages of Using Retrofit Displays (R Series)
- Extends the lifecycle of your applications and products
- Avoids the need for investments for fundamental adjustments
- Maintenance and service obligation still covered for at least seven to ten years in form, fit and function
- Saves time and money
- Uses the advantages of modern display technology
- Better availability of the components in case of repair
- Retrofit Displays are more eco-friendly than old models
