Sony LMD-XH550MT is designed for smooth integration in Operating Rooms, surgical centers, and medical classrooms, with versatile connectivity options, advanced imaging features, and a flat, hygiene-friendly design. This slim, easy-to-use LCD surgical monitor displays very bright, high-contrast 4K HDR images with a wide color gamut in 3D or 2D.
Exceptional image quality
The LMD-XH550MT (55-inch) display bright, high-quality 4K Ultra HD images in either 3D or 2D with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels (16:9 screen aspect ratio). Sony’s unique local dimming panel technology ensures high-contrast images that reveal fine detail in highlights and dark shadow areas. In addition, the anti-reflective panel structure helps surgical teams see clearly, even under the glare of direct lighting in the OR.
High brightness and contrast
The Sony LMD-XH550MT feature Sony’s unique Local Dimming Technology, which controls the LEDs individually according to the scene and optimizes the brightness. This enables a peak brightness (panel specification) of 1,500 cd/m2 with a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1.
When receiving HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) signals from a compatible imaging system, the LMD-XH550MT can accurately reproduce HDR images with a wider range of brightness levels, greater contrast, and rich colors.
Anti-reflection panel structure
The monitor’s design minimizes reflected glare in brightly lit ORs, including distracting reflections from surgical lights. The panel’s anti-reflection structure reduces light dispersion, ensuring high-contrast images under a wide range of illumination conditions and viewing angles.
Wide, accurate color reproduction
The monitor’s advanced LCD panel and signal processing technology support highly consistent, accurate reproduction of a wide color gamut. This complies with ITU-R Recommendation BT.2020 which represents a significantly wider gamut than the BT.709 color space, allowing superior color reproduction and more realistic visualization.
Extensive 3D display options
The Sony LMD-XH550MT can display 3D and 2D signals in HD and 4K. Connections for SDI (12G/3G), Display Port, DVI, and HDMI signal inputs support a variety of different 3D and 2D formats such as side-by-side, line-by-line, and top & bottom. A dual stream is available when accepting an HD 3D signal via SDI. 4K dual stream via two 12G-SDI inputs is also available. 3D/2D operating mode can be changed directly with the button on the front panel, with the selected mode indicated on the display.
Advanced features for today’s clinical environments
The design and powerful imaging features of the LMD-XH550MT ensure optimal performance and usability in the OR and other demanding healthcare environments.
Sony’s proprietary A.I.M.E. (Advanced Image Multiple Enhancer) technologies enhance the visibility of displayed images to assist surgical teams. Structure Enhancement improves recognition of the object’s outline, allowing structures to be seen more clearly with increased sharpness. Color Enhancement allows tonal differences to be manipulated for greater visibility. Shadow Enhancement improves the visibility of details in dark areas.
Multiple display modes
Alongside a choice of standard display modes – side-by-side, picture-in-picture (PIP), and picture-out-picture (POP) – V Full mode lets users change smaller POP images to be enlarged and displayed full screen. Either or both POP images can be enlarged by the user as required.
Note: 3-screen display is available only for 2D images.
The exact image displayed on the monitor – including display settings such as A.I.M.E. or picture-in-picture – is output for simultaneous viewing on a secondary display. This allows OR staff and students to view the same content that’s being viewed by the surgeon on a bigger display. The clone output can be rescaled from 4K to HD and vice versa; it can also be used to convert from 3D to 2D if a connected monitor or recorder only accepts 2D input signals. HDR (HLG gamma) can be converted to SDR for monitors or recorders that only accept SDR signals.
Optimized design for simplified installation and ease of use
The LMD-XH550MT is designed for easy, flexible installation and reliable, user-friendly operation in a wide range of demanding clinical environments.
Designed for easy hygiene
The display’s smooth surface, streamlined back shape and small vents allow easy wiping of liquids and gels off the LCD panel, control buttons, and rear cover, supporting high standards of disinfection and cleanliness in the OR.
All signal cable ports face downwards to allow neatly organized cable connections. Three cable access points with covers further simplify cabling to meet a wide range of installation needs.
Connections are provided to support a wide range of 3D and 2D video signal inputs from clinical modalities, including SDI (12G/3G), Display Port, HDMI, and DVI.
LED backlighting only highlights active control buttons on the front panel to guide the user easily and prevent misoperation, also in dark environments. Custom buttons can be assigned to commonly used functions.
Using an optional footswitch (FS-24 available separately) surgeons can easily operate frequently used menu functions such as A.I.M.E. on/off, port A/B, PIP/POP, flip pattern, and 3D/2D.
