Two new 20.8-inch, 3-megapixel liquid crystal display monitors were introduced at the RSNA meeting by U.S. Electronics and Totoku of Japan.

The CCL350i color display is suitable for viewing high-resolution color 3D images or monochrome ultrasound and endoscopic procedures. It has a 2048 x 1536 native resolution, maximum brightness of 400 nits, 10-bit (1021 gray-scale tones) capability, and viewing angle of 170°. The monitor displays 16.8 million colors and provides a contrast ratio of 450:1, digital visual interface, and portrait and landscape views.

The ME351i monochrome LCD offers the same large-screen size and image resolution as the color display. With a maximum brightness of 700 nits and contrast ratio of 900:1, 11.9-bit or 3826 gray-scale tone resolution, and digital visual interface, it is intended for viewing general radiology scans.

Both monitors use Totoku's lambda-Sentinel II Front sensor technology, which combines a front luminance sensor and an internal temperature sensor to eliminate fluctuations in backlight by continually collecting, analyzing, and adjusting luminance levels.
