Canon Strengthens Medical Projector Line

Canon U.S.A. announced the latest addition to its Realis multimedia projector lineup, the SX7 Mark II D with DICOM Simulation Mode, for helping medical students view monochrome digital X-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs in education settings.

Canon U.S.A. announced the latest addition to its Realis multimedia projector lineup, the SX7 Mark II D with DICOM Simulation Mode, for helping medical students view monochrome digital X-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs in education settings.

"In the medical-education field, the need to display images with accurate color reproduction and precise detail is mandatory," said Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager of the Consumer Imaging Group at Canon U.S.A., in a statement. "With the new Realis SX7 Mark II D, educators can be confident that whether in a classroom, conference room, or other setting, the image being projected will be of the highest quality."

According to the company, the DICOM Simulation Mode on the Realis SX7 Mark II D simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. This special mode allows users to calibrate directly on the projector using 21 different levels of gamma adjustments. The company says this flexibility is significant because calibrating in a classroom, conference room, or any other environment can be challenging when ambient light varies.

While not cleared or approved for medical diagnosis, the projector is well suited for medical educators who need to display large images to properly train students and conduct lectures or conferences.

Like other Realis projectors, the SX7 Mark II D uses LCoS technology, which is combined with a native SXGA resolution (1400 x1050) and 4,000 lumens of brightness. Other features include 1.7x powered zoom/focus, DVI-I terminal, Quiet Mode operation of 31 dB, and support for both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces.

The Realis SX7 Mark II D multimedia projector is scheduled to be available this month, with a suggested list price of $7,799.
