LMD-1951MD (LMD1951MD)

19-inch SXGA 2D LCD medical monitor


Full 10-bit HD / SD colour reproduction
The 19-inch LMD-1951MD SXGA medical LCD monitor is designed for both SD (Standard Definition) and HD (High Definition) systems that generate 4:3/5:4 aspect ratio signal output. The LMD-1951MD incorporates many of the same characteristics and features as the LMD-2451MD, including ChromaTRU™ colour processing for excellent picture reproduction, a full 10-bit digital signal processor to produce accurate and lifelike images, and enhanced viewing modes such as Picture-in-Picture and Mirror Image.


Advanced LED backlight technology enables the LMD-1951MD to reproduce brighter images than previous models, while at the same time being environmentally-friendly, Hg-free and offering lower power consumption.


Excellent picture reproduction
For the highest level of colour reproduction accuracy, the LMD-1951MD uses ChromaTRU™ colour processing technology, for outstanding colour consistency. The monitor also offers highly bright high-contrast images thanks to LED backlight technology along with a high-quality SXGA LCD panel.
Natural gradation and accurate colour reproduction
The LMD-1951MD adopts an advanced full 10-bit digital video signal processor to produce accurate and lifelike images with smooth and natural gradation.
Wide range of standard input interfaces
The LMD-1951MD is equipped with a full range of inputs, including composite, Y/C (S-Video), RGB, HD15 and DVI-D as standard. Furthermore, two built-in option ports greatly expand the input signals this monitor can accept. These ports allow users to easily select and change input/output signals for ultimate flexibility via a variety of available option boards, including 3G-SDI input (with the BKM-250TG option board).
Design features for hygiene and safety
The LMD-1951MD is liquids resistant and designed to be easily wiped clean of liquids and gels, ensuring effective hygiene and safety in the medical environment. It also features rounded corners, which is beneficial in a busy and space-limited environment such as an operating room.
Variety of scan and display modes
There are various image scan modes – such as Normal/Over scan, Under scan, Full, Zoom and Native – allowing users to select the most suitable scan mode depending on the requirements. Furthermore, the LMD-1951MD provides a variety of display modes including Mirror Image, Side-by-Side and Picture-in-Picture, which allow users to optimally view images according to each particular application.
Variety of gamma curve settings
Users can choose from a variety of gamma settings – 1.8, 2.0, 2.2, 2.4, 2.6, and DICOM – depending on their requirements.
Users can activate/deactivate control panel buttons with just one touch. Use of this feature helps prevent inadvertent operation of the control panel in a busy environment. When the menu item KEY-INHIBIT is set to ON, control panel buttons cannot be used – this prevents unauthorised alteration of settings.
VESA mounting
The monitor can stand on a desktop or be mounted on the wall or ceiling with a 100 x 100mm VESA arm mount.
Compliance with medical standards
This product is distributed to the US and EU as a medical device and satisfies product safety standards (e.g. IEC 60601-1). For more details, please contact your nearest Sony sales office or an authorized dealer.
