Barco’s MDSC-2232 is a 32″ near-patient surgical display with Full HD resolution. Purpose-built for the operating room, emergency room, and pre-operative areas, it offers an easy-clean design, smart mechanics and the most detailed images in the procedure room today.

Perfect image reproduction

The display’s high brightness, high contrast and full HD resolution provide surgeons with excellent depth perception and precise color and monochrome images. It presents images with unrivaled color and grayscale accuracy and with near-zero latency for perfect hand-eye coordination. Thanks to its high-bright LED backlight with light output stabilization, the surgical display also ensures a long lifetime and image consistency across displays.

Multi-source, multi-display imaging

With its broad input connectivity, the MDSC-2232 offers flexible multi-modality imaging (PiP & PaP) in new integrated operating rooms.The 32-inch display also offers integrated functionality (optional) for use with Barco’s Nexxis for OR solution, ensuring smooth distribution of uncompressed video and data over the IP network without delay.

Easy to install

The MDSC-2232 comes with a smart cable management system that hides the cables for a clutter-free set-up. Its lightweight design allows easy mounting on surgical booms and spring arms. Available in two models, this surgical display also features a host of connectivity and remote control options.

Safe for medical use

Barco’s MDSC-2232 allows for easy cleaning and disinfection thanks to its smooth surface and splash-proof housing (front protection level IPX5). The multi-coated glass is highly durable, scratch-resistant, and protects the LCD panel from physical damage. The fanless design avoids the spread of contaminants. What’s more, the display offers a unique, automated failover feature so a backup signal is always available to ensure safe surgery.
