NDS Surgical Imaging Radiance Ultra TruColor 32″
Why do you think readers were interested in learning more about the product?
With the new Radiance Ultra TruColor display, NDS’s wireless video technology is now built into the display itself. Embedding the wireless video receiver into the monitor allows the OR to become more streamlined by helping reduce the number of medical devices required for a procedure, as well as reducing the number of cables and wires.
Extensive upgrade costs to 4K imaging can be eye-opening, involving the camera system, scopes, cabling, monitors, and more. The new Radiance Ultra TruColor technology innovation gives OR teams the opportunity to continue to utilize their current HD camera system and video equipment, while boosting the overall visualization experience with color performance that rivals that of 4K.
How does this product benefit the surgical team and aid in better outcomes?
Engineered to expand the color gamut to broaden the range of colors an LCD display can produce, Radiance Ultra TruColor delivers a more true-to-life viewing experience to the surgical team. Innovating beyond the capabilities of the standard gamut of today’s typical HD imaging, the new TruColor ultra-wide-gamut technology provides visualization that more accurately resembles anatomy the human eye would visualize during an open surgical procedure.
What technical innovations does the product encapsulate and apply to the OR?
The Radiance Ultra TruColor 32” surgical display is the first to be engineered with a built-in embedded wireless HD video receiver. This allows for a reduction in the number of medical devices required during a procedure, while also eliminating power and video cables. Ultra-wide-gamut TruColor technology also provides an expanded spectrum of colors more accurately aligned with human vision.
