Engineered for Maximum Visual Precision
Every WIDE product is designed with our user's needs in mind. Our engineering teams constantly search for innovative ways to improve performance, add functionality and simplify operation. This page highlights key technologies that make WIDE monitor solutions the most advanced available.
WIDE's Image Quality Assurance System (IQAS) guarantees optimal on-screen performance through a combination of our IQ Sensor, Stable Brightness Control (SBC), Luminance Uniformity Control (LUC) and our ezCal quality management software. IQAS maintains image quality and performance and automates QA tasks such as initial display calibration and DICOM Part 14 GSDF configuration.
WIDE’s patented built-in IQ Sensor®, combined with bundled network calibration software, automatically calibrates the diagnostic display to the DICOM 3.14 standard. Along with hands free, auto DICOM Calibration, the IQ Sensor® utilizes advanced sensor technology for increased accuracy and enhanced sensitivity.
Medical imaging displays demand highly accurate luminance uniformity across the screen. However, uniformity is difficult to achieve because of how TFT LCD displays are constructed. Our Luminance Uniformity Control (LUC) function normalizes luminance from edge to edge.
WIDE’s DAC (Digital Ambient Control) sensor is located at the top of each diagnostic display to monitor ambient lighting within the reading room environment and is critical to ensuring proper DICOM calibration. If significant changes are observed by the DAC, an optional alert can be sent to the QA administrator.
WIDE’s on-board luminance correlation sensor, SBC (Self-Brightness Control) continuously monitors to detect any change in backlight luminance and automatically adjusts the backlight to reach its optimum luminance.
In an effort to make the troubleshooting process more efficient, WIDE has implemented SmartCare® on each of new neX-Smart Series displays. SmartCare®, WIDE’s diagnostic program for displays, allows the user to activate this service via the OSD (On-Screen Display) and communicate results easily to service personnel.
WIDE offers a software package that lowers the maintenance of the medical monitors by managing them remotely. Regular calibrations can be performed by technicians across the network. This powerful software also can send out an e-mail alert if the monitor detects an error, if the power supply is disrupted and even if the monitor is no longer connected. The system administrator is able to schedule required maintenance making these monitors the easiest to own.
