Richardson Electronics said last week it is selling its picture archiving and communications systems display business, including its Image Systems brand, to Double Black Imaging for an undisclosed amount.
The Image Systems portfolio includes 2MP through 6MP color and grayscale displays as well as proprietary CFS calibration software designed to simplify conformance and calibration of its displays, the companies said.
Double Black Imaging produces PAC displays for the diagnostic and clinical display market, and was launched in 2002.
“Double Black Imaging shares many of the same values as Richardson Electronics including our objective to help lower healthcare costs. We believe the combination of these two PACS display businesses creates a stronger competitive environment and will be good for our diagnostic display customers. At the same time, this sale allows Richardson Healthcare to focus on its key initiative to expand our line of CT and MRI tubes and high value replacement parts for the diagnostic imaging market,” Richardson Electronics CEO & chair Edward Richardson said in a press release.
