Barco expands display controller line
Barco has launched the MXRT-5450, a dual-DVI display controller featuring AMD FirePro professional graphics.

MXRT-5450 joins the company’s line of display controllers for healthcare imaging.

Kortrijk, Belgium-based Barco developed the display controller together with AMD to make new imaging technologies available for current medical displays. Equipped with two DVI connectors and AMD FirePro professional graphics, the MXRT-5450 allows for upgrades and enables radiologists to use a display system with the latest visualization technology and high performance.

Designed for 2D and 3D imaging applications in healthcare and large datasets, the board supports DirectX and OpenGL and is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 7. The GPU, based on PCIe Gen2 x 16 architecture, allows image loading, roaming and manipulation of images with up to 5.8MP grayscale resolution.

The technology has been tested and optimized to work with Barco's range of Nio and Coronis display products as well as its MediCal QAWeb software. Vigorous compatibility testing also ensures reliable performance with the latest workstations and with the leading PACS applications, the company added.
