Barco’s MDSC2242 is a 42 inch large screen surgical display with LED back light, featuring full HD resolution. Purpose built for the operating room, the MDSC2242 can visualize a wide range of analog and digital video sources, including HD endoscopic video, room and boom camera video, patient and surgery information, radiology and pathology images, with ultimate detail.


42inch full HD largescreen surgical display

Colorcalibrated, artifactfree images
Thanks to its high brightness, high contrast and high resolution, the MDSC2242 presents surgeons with accurate, realistic images and excellent depth perception. It also offers the fastest, lagfree transmission of surgical images and the highest image quality available today. Our nextgeneration motion adaptive deinterlacing and noise reduction algorithms, using full 10bit image processing and a 12bit lookup table, make the MDSC2242 ideal for consulting PACS images in the OR.

Multisource, multidisplay imaging over IP
With its broad input connectivity, the MDSC2242 offers the highest flexibility for multimodality imaging (PiP & PaP), enabling reproduction of images from multiple sources and to multiple displays in the integrated operating room. The 42inch display is one of Barco’s networkenabled surgical displays and offers integrated functionality (optional) for use with Nexxis digital OR, ensuring smooth distribution of uncompressed video and data over the IP network without delay.

Designed for use in the operating room
Barco’s MDSC2242 allows easy cleaning and disinfection thanks to its antireflective protective front glass. The fanless design avoids the spread of contaminants in the operating room.
