With Barco's MDSC-8427 surgical display, you'll experience the next level of surgical precision on one of the most versatile displays in the operating room. Featuring Barco’s unequalled image quality, this 4K display has exceptional brightness and crisp contrast. It’s how you’ll see the most detailed picture on a 27” screen. And thanks to our smart image processing technology, specially designed for medical video, your surgical images will be razor-sharp.


True-to-life colors in the surgical suite

The MDSC-8427 has been designed for endoscopy imaging and the integrated operating room. The display has a wide color gamut and offers advanced color calibration algorithms. This results in the most accurate color reproduction, making it the preferred choice for real-time critical imaging.

User friendly

The dual user interface – there is one at the front as well as at the back – makes it easy to operate the display. The touch screen functions at the front can be programmed to meet the personal preferences of surgical staff. The intuitive user interface makes it easy to set up the screen or change the layout configurations of the display to fit the procedure. Four dedicated shortcut buttons enable fluent configuration of the display.

Distinctive design

The 27” screen delivers a stylish, sleek solution for 4K visualization in the operating room. Every detail has been carefully envisioned to assure a professional, purposeful, and elegant fit for the surgical suite. The 27” size offers a lightweight and attractive alternative to current 24” or 26” Full HD displays. 

Perfectly safe 

This 4K display features a unique, automated failover feature. A backup signal is guaranteed at all times – with no intervention – to ensure safe surgery. The display is easy to disinfect thanks to the smooth surface and splash-proof housing. The integrated cable cover combined with the rubber joystick ensure optimal hygiene. Needless to say, it has been approved for use near patients.
