May 15, 2008 — LaFox, Illinois…Richardson Electronics (NASDAQ: RELL) today announced the release of the Image Systems high bright color LCD series for medical imaging. The FP2202CHBP (2MP) and FP2080CHBP (3MP) offer exceptionally high brightness and contrast ratios, making them ideal for diagnostic imaging and clinical applications requiring a fusion of grayscale and color imaging, such as PET, 3D, Cardiology and Nuclear Medicine.
Both displays emit a peak brightness of 600 cd/m2, which equates to a sustainable calibrated brightness of 450 - 500 cd/m2. The 21.3" FP2202CHBP provides a contrast ratio of 500:1 and 1200 x 1600 standard resolution. The 3MP FP2080CHBP offers a 20.8" screen with a 600:1 contrast ratio and standard resolution of 2048 x 1536.
“The Image Systems high bright color displays are an excellent complement to our existing line of diagnostic and clinical grayscale displays,” stated Chris Kane, Director of Marketing and Product Management for Richardson Electronics Healthcare.
”Backlight stabilization circuitry, an embedded front sensor and Image Systems’ exclusive CFS calibration software allow users to perform their own color point calibration and color-matching,” added Kane. “This helps healthcare facilities ensure they maintain AAPM TG18 and DICOM compliance throughout the useful life of their displays.”
As with all Image Systems’ displays, the high bright color LCDs include a 3-year warranty and free HotSwap Advance Product Replacement service. More information about the FP2080CHBP and FP2202CHBP series high bright color LCDs is available in the “Featured Products” section at www.canvys.com.
