MDSC‑8232 M3D

Surgical 2D and 3D display with Nexxis 3D HD/4K integration

  • Perfect match for HD/4K 3D endoscopy cameras
  • Fully compatible with 2D and 3D modes, FHD and 4K/UHD resolution
  • BT.2020 & BT.709 compatible
  • 3D ergonomic eye-shield included
  • Medical-grade, easy to clean design

The MDSC-8232 M3D is a 31-inch 2D and 3D surgical monitor that is compatible with Barco's Nexxis video-over-IP solution.

100% compatibility with existing Nexxis installations

The display has a built-in MNA decoder, which means that it can be seamlessly integrated into an existing Nexxis architecture, just like any other Nexxis source. In a Nexxis configuration, the monitor is compatible with the most common 3D and 2D video formats typical of modern microscopes and laparoscopic camera systems. 3D sources become part of the full integration, including support for inter-OR sharing, remote management, streaming and recording.

3D technology as part of your digital OR

The display is based on a circular polarization technology for 3D visualization with passive glasses. Thanks to the Nexxis integration, it automatically switches between 2D and 3D modes to show the video source in its best suitable format.

Visual comfort in a wide viewing area

In 3D mode, multiple users at the same time will be able to see the image with excellent depth perception and no visual discomfort in a large viewing area. The display also provides HD and 4K image quality with high color accuracy, detailed images and no artifacts. Near-zero latency enables optimal hand-eye coordination.

The full-glass front surface is durable and scratch-resistant make the display easy to clean. The designed in standard VESA-100 mounting plate allows easy mounting on surgical booms and spring arms.
