Strictly speaking this isn't home cinema news but we can't resist an OLED story. Sony Electronics has announced the world's first medical-grade monitor, model PVM-2551MD, based on OLED technology. The new 25-inch monitor, which recently received FDA 510(k) clearance, is expected to deliver significant benefits for a variety of surgical procedures and combines all the noted advantages of OLED technology -- true-to-life color reproduction, high resolution, and virtually no motion blur.

"Already showing tremendous advantages for surgeons in other parts of the world, the new Sony OLED monitor will now enhance surgical viewing in the U.S., and become the 'must have' medical display," said George Santanello, general manager, Sony Medical Systems Division. "A number of Sony's key technology resellers and integrators have already evaluated the display and noted the significant benefits of OLED versus traditional LCD, so we're excited about getting the product into operating rooms across the country."



The majority of surgeons, both in and outside the U.S., who were asked to evaluate Sony's OLED monitors, reported that they prefer OLED's advanced technology for its stability of color imaging and high quality contrast. This technology is expected to set a new standard for medical displays, particularly for applications such as endoscopy, arthroscopy, laparoscopy, and thoracoscopy, as well as general surgery procedures.

Sony's OLED technology is already successful in a range of commercial applications such as critical reference monitoring for video production, with more than 10,000 units delivered worldwide. Now the company expects to see the same rapid adoption by the medical industry.

With its much quicker response time than LCD, one of the greatest advantages of the OLED monitor is its ability to display quick motion with virtually no blur. Additionally, the monitor incorporates Sony's TRIMASTER EL technology (EL standing for electroluminescence), enabling it to achieve pure black, faithful to the source signal. By providing excellent color reproduction, especially for dark images, surgeons can observe very subtle details such as the faint color difference between various tissues and blood vessels. This ability to achieve true-to-life color reproduction and reduced blur is expected to support quicker, more confident decision making for surgeons which is ultimately best for patients. We just hope the hospitals get them calibrated!


The Sony OLED medical-grade monitor, PVM-2551MD, is currently available for sale with pricing available upon request. Read, very expensive!
