Barco launches new 22-inch medical displays for healthcare IT at HIMSS
Kortrijk, 06 March 2013 – Healthcare imaging expert Barco announces the launch of its brand-new Eonis clinical display family. Designed with clinical specialists in mind, the Eonis displays combine an innovative, built-in front sensor with Barco’s MediCal QAWeb cloud-based tool to ensure superior, controlled image quality. The Eonis 22” model is available in a black and a white version, with the latter offering a fully cleanable front glass panel to prevent infection – a first in the market.
“Today's hospitals rely on comprehensive EMR systems to deliver patient data and images to specialists across the hospital. To enable high-quality collaboration, we have now developed an entirely new range of displays ideally suited to the expectations of everyone in the hospital. It provides specialists with consistent image quality and healthcare IT with easy-to-use, yet powerful tools to control their assets. To comply with increasingly stringent disinfection guidelines, the white Eonis version can be easily cleaned with typical hospital products,” says Stephane Willaert, Director Strategic Marketing, Barco Healthcare.
Consistent image quality
The new Eonis display presents crisp, razor-sharp, high-contrast images. To guarantee image consistency at all times, it features a unique front sensor that automatically aligns image quality every time the display is turned on. This image consistency enhances collaboration: images always appear exactly like they are supposed to, on every display, which spurs confident clinical decisions. Furthermore, specialists looking at X-ray images will appreciate the built-in DICOM settings.
One-click quality assurance
Like Barco’s entire medical display range, the new Eonis line comes with Barco’s online MediCal QAWeb service for quality assurance and remote asset management. Proving its superior value in hospitals around the world, MediCal QAWeb provides automated quality assurance checks and detailed reports. It makes it easy for healthcare IT to centrally and remotely manage and configure displays across the healthcare organization.
Fully cleanable and smart design
The new Eonis display carries all safety certifications required in clinical environments. It comes in a smart design (VESA mount, integrated cable management system) to allow for flexible deployment in hospitals. Most unique, however, is the excellent cleanability of the white Eonis thanks to the toughened and scratch-proof glass. The display can be disinfected, both front and back, with typical alcohol-based cleaning agents (IP-x3 rating).
“We are confident hospital specialists will appreciate the crisp images and the versatile design of the new Eonis. The automatic quality assurance and remote management will help healthcare IT save precious time. All things considered, we believe the Eonis will help hospitals deliver the very best patient care,” Stephane Willaert concludes.
The new 22” Eonis displays will be launched during this week’s HIMSS show in New Orleans (Barco booth 7021) and will be commercially available beginning in June, in both black and white versions. Additional displays in the Eonis series will follow later this year.
