NEC Display Solutions Introduces MultiSync MD242C2 Display with IPS Panel and Front Sensor

Two-Megapixel 24-Inch Color Diagnostic Display Built for Rigorous Requirements of Healthcare Professionals

CHICAGO--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the MultiSync® MD242C2 referral-grade, widescreen display with front sensor for diagnostic review applications in healthcare organizations.


The 2.3-megapixel, 24-inch display with IPS panel is designed to provide precise color reproduction and wide viewing angles. Factory-calibrated uniformity control provides accurate imaging across the screen.

In addition, the display includes out-of-the-box calibration to the DICOM grayscale display function for luminance. An integrated front sensor constantly monitors and adjusts brightness to maintain the factory DICOM GSDF calibration. The MD242C2 also includes a human presence sensor that can automatically dim the screen to conserve power and display life as well as a Quick QA function for checking DICOM conformance without a computer. The monitor's stand has four-way ergonomic functionality, including height-adjust, swivel, tilt and pivot.

"This 24-inch monitor gives medical practitioners a powerful tool with which to perform their demanding jobs," said Art Marshall, Product Manager of Professional and Medical Displays at NEC Display Solutions. "NEC was built on innovation, and our goal is to drive productivity improvements for healthcare professionals and improve their overall total costs of ownership."

The MD242C2 display offers a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 1920 x 1200 native resolution, and 350 cd/m2 of brightness (180 cd/m2 calibrated brightness). Its 14-bit lookup tables provide 1,024 levels of gray out of a palette of 3,826. The display meets the needs of healthcare facilities requiring consistent and accurate medical imaging using Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS).

The display also offers DisplayPort, DVI-D, HDMI and VGA inputs, plus a built-in three-port USB Hub with DisplaySync Pro.
