Barco expands range of purpose-built clinical displays for healthcare specialists
Kortrijk, Belgium, 24 February 2014 – Healthcare imaging specialist Barco announces the launch of Eonis 24” – a new 24-inch clinical display, which comes in two models: standard (black) or with a fully cleanable front glass panel (white). As the newest member of Barco’s Eonis clinical display family, the 24-inch display has been designed to provide healthcare specialists with consistent image quality and healthcare IT professionals with powerful management tools for controlling their clinical display fleet centrally.
“As the healthcare industry moves toward a more collaborative care model – with medical professionals sharing and viewing images and patient data across disciplines and hospitals – enterprise-wide coherent image quality has become a major prerequisite. Barco’s Eonis family provides specialists with consistent, crisp, and high-quality images, as a solid basis for confident image viewing,” comments Stephane Willaert, VP Strategic Marketing Healthcare IT. “In addition, to comply with increasingly stringent disinfection guidelines, the white Eonis models come with a toughened front glass panel to allow thorough cleaning, even with 70% alcohol cleaning agents.”
Enterprise-wide image consistency
To ensure image consistency across hospitals and departments, Barco’s Eonis clinical displays are equipped with a unique front-of-screen consistency sensor that automatically aligns image quality every time the display is switched on. This allows healthcare specialists to consult with remote colleagues efficiently and confidently, knowing that everyone is seeing identical images.
What’s more, the new 24-inch screen can be positioned in portrait orientation, providing specialists with more flexibility when viewing skeletal radiography images or patient lists. Because the 24-inch screen size is ideal for displaying EMR data, Eonis is highly appreciated by users of hospital-wide EMR systems. Plus, with 1920 x 1200 screen resolution, Eonis 24” is perfect for viewing high-detail images.
Asset management and quality assurance
Eonis displays come with Barco’s MediCal QAWeb online service for quality assurance and remote asset management. Providing automated quality assurance checks and detailed reports, MediCal QAWeb has proven its superior value in hospitals around the world. The service makes it easy for IT staff to centrally and remotely manage and configure displays across the healthcare organization.
Made for clinical environments
Eonis displays are specifically designed for use in hospital environments. The displays feature a smart cable management system, external power supplies, and multiple mounting options and connections for cart, arm or wall mount solutions. To help ensure infection control, the white Eonis models are fully cleanable, front and back, with typical alcohol-based cleaning agents – a first in the market.

Barco’s Eonis clinical display family will be showcased at HIMSS (booth 6083) from 23-27 February in Orlando, Florida. The two new Eonis 24” display models will be commercially available as of Q2 2014.
