Our buddies at Canon have released two new projectors geared for medical schools and anywhere else DICOM images need to be shown for teaching purposes. The Canon REALiS SX7 Mark II D and the Canon REALiS SX80 Mark II D feature a DICOM simulation mode that utilizes a built-in light meter to adjust the grayscale image to the ambient light of its environment.
What’s DICOM? Why does my projector need a DICOM simulation mode?
DICOM stands for “Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine”. It is a standard for handling, storing, printing and transmitting information in medical imaging. DICOM has been widely adopted by hospitals and is making inroads in smaller applications like dentists’ and doctors’ offices.
To properly display X-rays and other medical imagery for teaching purposes, Canon’s DICOM simulation mode projectors are able to output grayscale with a greater precision than consumer screens. In essence, they give you better X-ray vision.
Features of Canon Projectors’ DICOM Simulation Mode
- Displays images to the DICOM 14 standard
- Easy calibration with 21 preset levels of gamma
- Perfect for medical training and education
Featuring LCOS technology, the Canon REALiS SX7 Mark II D and the Canon REALiS SX80 Mark II D projectors produce a high-resolution, film-like image display that is virtually free from the screen door effect. The projectors display small text sharply and produce high-contrast images with exceptional color and rich detailed gradation.
And with industry leader Canon’s optics in place, you can count on a highly accurate image reproduction on displays up to 300 inches in size.
We currently have special pricing on the Canon REALiS SX7 Mark II D and the Canon REALiS SX80 Mark II D. Added bonus, through the end of September, you can receive a FREE projector replacement lamp (retail value $579) with the purchase of these projectors.
