System Configuration Guidelines
Because of the low power consumption and low heat generation of
the 5MP1HM, multiple boards may be installed in adjacent PCI slots
or adjacent to other PCI boards. Additionally there should be no need
to modify either the PC’s power supply and/or cooling system.

HARDWARE INSTALLATION
Notice: Wear a protective ESD strap during installation or handling of
the controller. Electrostatic charges can damage the controller.
Familiarizing Yourself With the 5MP1HM
Prior to installing your 5MP1HM controller(s) in your PC please take a
few minutes to familiarize yourself with both the controller and the PCI
slots in your computer.
Figure 1: The 5MP1HM Display Controller
Jumper Location
There is one user settable jumper on the BarcoMed 5MP1HM. It is
used to enable or disable the VGA capabilities of the controller.
Using the VGA Capabilities of the BarcoMed 5MP1HM
Prior to installing the BarcoMed 5MP1HM, decide if you are going to
use its on-board VGA capabilities. If you are, check the setting of the
Jumper at J-1 on the display controller. (See VGA Jumper, J-1,
Figures 1 and 2) By default, VGA should be enabled, on the top two
pins. If you are using the VGA capabilities of the 5MP1HM, you
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
15
Display Controller installation
should now remove any third party VGA controller from your system or
disable the integrated VGA controller.
If you decide to use a separate VGA card and monitor as your boot
monitor, you must disable the on-board VGA capabilities of the
BarcoMed 5MP1HM by moving the jumper to the bottom two pins at J1.
Figure 2: VGA Jumper Enlarged View
NOTE: To use multiple 5MP1HM controllers in a single host with VGA
enabled, you need to enable VGA on only ONE of the 5MP1HM
controllers and disable VGA on ALL other BarcoMed controllers.
Examples of PCI Slots
The BarcoMed 5MP1HM is a 64–bit PCI controller. To obtain full
performance, it needs to be installed in a 64–bit slot. Figure 3
illustrates the types of slots so that you can correctly identify which
one to use for the 5MP1HM.
Figure 3: PCI and RAID Controller Slots

Display Controller installation
Installing the BarcoMed 5MP1HM Display Controller
Install the 5MP1HM into your computer following these steps:
1. Turn off the power to your computer and disconnect the power
cord.
2. Remove the chassis cover according to the manufacturer’s
instructions. Be sure to observe safety warnings.
3. If you have decided to use the on-board VGA capabilities of the
5MP1HM (see Using the VGA Capabilities of the BarcoMed
5MP1HM), you must now remove any VGA cards that are
currently installed in the computer. You may also need to un-install
the drivers for that VGA controller. (Consult the User Guide for
your VGA controller for instructions on removing the driver.) If your
system has an integrated VGA card you may need to make
changes to your systems BIOS settings in order to use the VGA
capabilities of your BarcoMed controller. (Consult your PC
manufacturer’s guides for instructions.)
4. Install the 5MP1HM Display Controller into a free 64–bit PCI slot
(see Figure 3 for examples of slots). Be sure that the controller is
seated firmly in the slot.
5. Secure the card to the chassis with the PC’s I/O panel mounting
screw, and replace the chassis cover.
6. Connect the display to the BarcoMed 5MP1HM using the video
cable provided with the controller. Each display cable has three
BNC connectors on it. The green one is the video, the black one is
the horizontal sync, and the white one is the vertical sync. Figure
4 shows the cable connectors on the back of the controller. To
install multiple BarcoMed 5MP1HM display controllers in your
computer repeat steps 4 – 6.
7. Reconnect the power cord, turn on the power, and boot the system
as usual.
Running Multiple BarcoMed Display Controllers in a Single
Host
The physical order of the displays may vary when you are running
multiple BarcoMed display controllers. This is due to the PC’s PCI
bus control in the system BIOS, and not the BarcoMed controller. It
may become necessary, depending on how your PC’s BIOS
configures the PCI bus, to switch your BNC display connections to
achieve a linear desktop configuration.

Placing and configuring the displays
1 The last part of this system manual is a copy of the display user
manual. Follow the precautions and guidelines from this part.
2 The display(s) from the MeDis system are numbered. E.g., in a
quad-head system, the displays are numbered 1 to 4. You can
find the number of the display on a label at the rear side.
3 In a multi-head system, the order in which you place the displays
is not random: From left to right or from top to bottom in
ascending order.
4 The displays' remote addresses are properly set at the factory.
The addresses correspond to the display numbers on the rear
label: Display #1 has address 1 etc.
Note: The display address setting can be found in the Settings
menu in the display's on-screen menus. For more information,
please refer to the last part of this manual.
Connection of the video cables
1 The video cables from the MeDis system are numbered. You can
find the number on a label on the cable.
The cable number must correspond to the head (on the display
controller) and the display it is connected to: E.g., cable #1 must
connect head #1 (on the first display controller) to display #1,
cable #2 must connect head #2 (also on the first board) to display
#2, etc.
2 Plug in the small coaxial connectors of the video cable into the
connectors of the display controller. Plug in the cable connector
marked with green plastic, into the board connector marked with a
green ring (video). Plug in the cable connector marked with black
plastic, into the board connector marked with a black ring
(horizontal or composite sync). Plug in the cable connector
marked with white plastic, into the board connector marked with a
white ring (vertical sync).
3 Plug in the large coaxial connectors of the video cable into the
connectors of the display. Plug in the cable connector marked
with green plastic, into the display connector marked "Video".
Plug in the cable connector marked with black plastic, into the
display connector marked "HS/CS". Plug in the cable connector
marked with white plastic, into the display connector marked "VS".

Connection of the Remote cables
Note: One of the remote cables is packed inside the MediCal box.
1 The Remote cables that come with MeDis are not numbered. It
does not matter which cable you connect to which display, as long
as you take the Remote inputs and outputs on the displays into
account.
2 Take one of the remote cables from the MeDis system. Plug in its
D9 female connector into one of the PC's serial ports (e.g., COM1).
If the port has 25 pins, use the D25-to-D9 interface you find in the
MediCal software box to connect the remote cable.
Plug the other end, the D9 male connector, into the Remote In
connector on one of the MGD 521 displays.
3 In case of a multi-board system, take a second Remote cable. Plug
the D9 female connector into the Remote Out connector of the
display you have connected in step 2. Plug the other end of the
cable into the Remote In connector of another display.
4 Proceed in this way until all displays are daisy-chained through the
Remote bus.
Power up the system
Connect the displays and PC to the power supply. Switch on all the
devices.

Planning Your Barcomed Windows 2000
Installation
Because of Windows 2000’s Plug and Play features, it is very
important to carefully plan your BarcoMed Board Hardware and
Software installation and install the device drivers in the same
sequence that the boards are installed in the PCI slots.
When installing BarcoMed Imaging Boards for the first time in a
Windows 2000 System, Windows 2000 Plug and Play Software
identifies the BarcoMed boards by the Video Chipset utilized on each
boards. The Table below shows the BarcoMed Board, the Chip Set
utilized by the board and the driver Windows 2000 Plug and Play
selects for each imaging board.

If you have previously installed drivers for the BarcoMed Imaging
Boards in your Windows 2000 System, Windows 2000 should
correctly identify the board by their correct BarcoMed name. However,
while updating the drivers to a new version or reinstalling the current
driver Windows 2000 may identify the BarcoMed Imaging Boards by
their Video Chipset.
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM

BarcoMed driver and software installation
If you choose to install multiple types of BarcoMed Imaging Boards in
your computer it is important to carefully note which PCI slot each
board is in and then install the drivers for each type of board based on
the PCI slot they are installed in. If you are using the VGA
Capabilities of a BarcoMed Imaging Board it is important to
install the driver for this board and set its resolution first.

Installing the BarcoMed 5MP2 AURA, 5MP2,
5MP1HM, 5MP1H or 4MP2 Windows 2000
Software
SPECIAL NOTE: Prior to installing the BarcoMed drivers and related
software you MUST install the BarcoMed Display Controller(s),
connect the high resolution display(s) to the card(s), and turn the high
resolution display(s) on. Refer to the Hardware Installation section of
this manual for instructions on installing the BarcoMed Display
Controller(s) and connecting them to the high resolution display(s).
The following software installation instructions presume that Windows
2000 is already installed on your system. If you need to install or
reinstall Windows 2000 on your system you must first remove the
BarcoMed Display Controller(s) and use a 3rd party VGA card and
VGA monitor during the Windows 2000 installation process.
Using the BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard
To install your BarcoMed 5MP2 AURA, 5MP2, 5MP1HM, 5MP1H or
4MP2 Windows 2000 Display Controller Driver and BARCO DPMS
Screen Saver for the first time follow the steps below. If you are
reinstalling the drivers or installing a new driver release over an
existing driver release skip to the step 5:
1. Install the BarcoMed Display Controller(s) into your machine.
Please refer to the Hardware Installation Guide that came with
your BarcoMed Display Controller(s) for more information.
2. Boot the machine, and log in using an account with administrator
privileges.
3. If you are installing the BarcoMed 5MP2 AURA or 5MP1HM
Display Controller, Windows 2000 will automatically launch the
“Found New Hardware Wizard”, click “Cancel”. Continue to click
“Cancel” until Windows 2000 stops launching the “Found New
Hardware Wizard - Video Controller”.
If you are installing the BarcoMed 5MP2, 5MP1H or 4MP2 Display
Controller, Windows 2000 will identify the controller as a Metheus
Megapixel Display Controller, but will not install any driver from its
Plug and Play library of device drivers.
4. Windows 2000 may advise you that it has finished installing all the
new devices in your system and that you must reboot your system
in order for the changes to take effect. If it does, click “No”.
5. Insert your BarcoMed Software CD into your computer’s CD drive.
The “BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard” should start
automatically. If it doesn’t start within 3 minutes, browse the
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
29
BarcoMed driver and software installation
contents of your BarcoMed Software CD and double click on the
file: “Setup.exe” to start the wizard.
The BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard will start by inspecting
your system to make certain that all of the Windows components it
needs are up to date. If it determines that the Microsoft Installer is
current, the BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard will display the
BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard’s welcome screen (see
figure 7 on the next page). If it determines that the Microsoft
Installer is either out of date or missing, it will display the screen
shown in figure 6 below. Click “OK” to continue, the wizard will
then install a newer version of the Microsoft Installer.
Figure 6
When the BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard advises you that it
has successfully installed the new version of the Microsoft Installer,
click “OK” to continue.
The BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard may prompt you to
restart your system. If it does, click “Yes” to restart your system.
When your system restarts log in using an account with
administrator privileges. If you are installing the BarcoMed 5MP2
AURA or 5MP1HM, Windows 2000 will again automatically launch
the “Found New Hardware Wizard”, click “Cancel. Continue to
click “Cancel” until Windows 2000 stops launching the “Found
New Hardware Wizard - Video Controller”.
6. The BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard’s welcome screen will
now be displayed (figure 7). By default all the software on the
BarcoMed Software CD will be selected. For the initial installation
we recommend that you install all of the software. If you do not
want to install a particular BarcoMed Software product at this time,
deselect it by clearing the checkbox next to it.
Click “Install” to continue or “Cancel” to exit the wizard.

Figure 7
Driver Installation
7. Click “Next” on the Display Driver Wizard’s Welcome Screen to
continue or “Cancel” to exit the Display Driver Wizard and return
to the Software Install Wizard.
8. The Device Selection Screen’s dialog box should show only those
devices physically installed and supported by the BarcoMed
display controller drivers on your BarcoMed Software CD. If there
are no BarcoMed devices installed, or if Windows 2000 does not
recognized the installed devices, or if the drivers on your
BarcoMed Software CD does not support the installed devices, the
dialog box will be empty, and program will exit when the user clicks
“Finish” or “Cancel”. Select the device you want to install and
then click “Next”.
Note: You can install the driver for only one type of BarcoMed
device at a time. If you have multiple types of BarcoMed devices
installed in your computer, you will need to rerun the installer to
install the drivers for the other devices.
9. If you selected a device with an existing driver, the wizard will
compare the existing driver’s version against the version of the
driver you are installing. If the existing driver’s version is newer
than the one you are installing, the wizard will warn you that the
current driver is newer than the one you are installing (see figure 8
on the next page).

10. If you are installing the BarcoMed 5MP1HM or 5MP1H skip to
step 11. Step 10 applies to the 5MP2 AURA, 5MP2 and 4MP2
only.
Your selection on the “Enable DualView” screen determines if
DualView is enabled or not. DualView allows a dual head display
controller to display two separate desktops, one for each display
instead of a single virtual desktop that spans across both displays.
DualView is a feature that is automatically supported by Windows
XP. However, BARCO has provided a means for you to enable this
functionality while running Windows 2000. Figures 9 and 10 show
the difference between running without and with DualView enabled
under Windows 2000.

Planning Your Barcomed Windows XP
Installation
Because of Windows XP’s Plug and Play features, it is very important
to carefully plan your BarcoMed Board Hardware and Software
installation and install the device drivers in the same sequence that
the boards are installed in the PCI slots.
When installing BarcoMed 5MP Family Display Controllers for the first
time in a Windows XP System, Windows XP Plug and Play Software
identifies the BarcoMed boards by the Video Chipset utilized on each
board. The table below shows the BarcoMed Display Controller, the
Chip Set utilized by the controller and the device Windows XP Plug
and Play selects for each Display Controller from its knowledge base.
Windows XP will not install any drivers for your BarcoMed 5MP Family
Display Controllers unless you are using the VGA capabilities of one
of your board, then Windows XP will load the default Microsoft VGA
driver for that board.

BarcoMed driver and software installation
If you have previously installed drivers for the BarcoMed Display
Controllers in your Windows XP System, Windows XP should identify
the board by their correct BarcoMed name. However, while updating
the drivers to a new version or reinstalling the current driver Windows
XP may identify the BarcoMed Display Controllers by their Video
Chipset.
If you choose to install multiple types of BarcoMed Display Controllers
in your computer it is important to carefully note which PCI slot each
board is in and then install the drivers for each type of board based on
the PCI slot they are installed in. If you are using the VGA
capabilities of a BarcoMed Display Controller it is important to
install the driver for this board and set its resolution first.

Installing the BarcoMed 5MP2 AURA, 5MP2,
5MP1HM, 5MP1H or 4MP2 Windows XP Software
SPECIAL NOTE: Prior to installing the BarcoMed drivers you MUST
install the BarcoMed Display Controller(s), connect the high resolution
display(s) to the controller(s), and turn the high resolution display(s)
on. Refer to the Hardware Installation section of this manual for
instructions on installing the BarcoMed Display Controller(s) and
connecting them to the high resolution display(s).
The following software installation instructions presume that Windows
XP is already installed on your system. If you need to install or
reinstall Windows XP on your system you must first remove the
BarcoMed Display Controller(s) and use a 3rd party VGA controller and
VGA monitor during the Windows XP installation process.
Using the BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard
To install your BarcoMed 5MP2 AURA, 5MP2, 5MP1HM, 5MP1H or
4MP2 Windows XP Display Controller Driver and BARCO DPMS
Screen Saver for the first time follow the steps below. If you are
reinstalling the drivers or installing a new driver release over an
existing driver release skip to the step 7 on the next page:
1. Install the BarcoMed Display Controller(s) into your machine.
Please refer to the Hardware Installation Guide that came with
your BarcoMed Display Controller(s) for more information.
2. Boot the machine and log in using an account with administrative
privileges.
3. Windows XP will do a thorough inspection of your system and will
announce that it has found new hardware. Please be patient as
this may take up to 5 minutes.
4. Close any informational balloons that Windows XP may open in
the lower right hand corner of the monitor.
5. If you are installing the BarcoMed 5MP2 AURA or 5MP1HM
Display Controller, Windows XP will automatically launch the
“Found New Hardware Wizard”, click “Cancel” to exit the Wizard.
Continue to click “Cancel” until Windows XP stops launching the
“Found New Hardware Wizard - Video Controller”.
If you are installing the BarcoMed 5MP2, 5MP1H or 4MP2 Display
Controller, Windows XP will identify the controller as a Metheus
Megapixel Display Controller, but will not install any driver from its
Plug and Play library of device drivers.
6. Windows XP may also tell you that it has finished installing new
devices and may ask you if you want to restart your computer. If it
does, click “No”.

Palette Mode
You can choose one of the three following Palette Modes:
UserModifiable Color Palette
This option allows applications to modify the palette contents
dynamically. As indicated by the picture below, this mode reserves the
first 10 and last 10 entries in the palette for the Windows operating
system, but applications can manipulate the middle 236 entries. This
is the standard palette mode as configured by Windows.
Static Gray Palette including standard system colors
This option sets the palette to be a static set of 256 gray values.
Therefore, applications are denied the ability to dynamically change or
allocate palette entries. This prevents palette conflicts between
applications, which can cause image color values to appear distorted
in the background application.
As shown in the next picture, the 20 standard system colors are
converted from RGB to gray values. The rest of the 236 entries from
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
59
BarcoMed controller tools
index 10 to 245 contain the missing gray values so that the palette
has the full 256 gray values within it.
Please note that dithering is not permitted while in this mode. The
Enable Dithering check box will be grayed-out, and dithering will be
automatically disabled regardless of whether this check box is
checked. This complies with the Windows standard interface method.
If you are unsure whether or not your application requires this “Static
Gray Palette including Standard System Colors” mode, contact your
application provider.
Static Gray Palette with NO system colors
This option sets the palette to be a static linear ramp of 256 shades of
gray. Therefore, applications are denied the ability to dynamically
change or allocate palette entries. This prevents palette conflicts
between applications, which can cause image color values to appear
distorted in the background application.
As shown in the picture below, each of the 256 entries in the palette
has an RGB value of (i, i, i) where i is the index from 0 to 255.
If you wish to use a static gray palette we recommend using the
“Static Gray Palette including Standard System Colors” option instead
of this one. This is due to the fact that some applications assume that
the first and last 10 entries of the palette are the standard system
colors. In this palette mode, these entries are made up from entries in
the bottom or the top of the gray ramp. Please note that dithering is
not permitted while in this mode. The Enable Dithering check box will
be grayed-out, and dithering will be automatically disabled regardless
of whether this check box is checked. This complies with the Windows
standard interface method. If you are unsure whether or not your
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
60
BarcoMed controller tools
application requires this “Static Gray Palette with NO System colors”
mode, contact your application provider.
Drawing Modes
You can choose one or both of the following Drawing Modes:
Enable DirectDraw
This option allows the user to enable or disable DirectDraw.
DirectDraw is a software interface that provides direct access to
display devices while maintaining compatibility with the Windows
graphics device interface (GDI). DirectDraw provides a deviceindependent way for applications to gain access to the hardware
features of specific display devices. If you enable DirectDraw, your
application will have the choice of using DirectDraw or GDI. If you
disable DirectDraw, your application will use GDI instead of
DirectDraw. Please note that in any case, your application can always
use BarcoMed driver functions (i.e. WinBarco) or other graphics
extensions (such as OpenGL).
Enable Dithering
This option allows the user to enable or disable dithering. Dithering is
a technique for increasing the perceived range of colors in an image
at the cost of spatial resolution. Adjacent pixels are assigned differing
color values; when viewed from a distance, these colors seem to
blend into a single intermediate color. The technique is similar to the
half-toning used in black-and-white publications to achieve shades of
gray. Please note that this option is only available when the User
Modifiable Palette Mode is selected. This is because dithering is only
supported under Windows when the display is palletized. If either the
“Static Gray Palette including Standard System Colors” mode or the
“Static Gray Palette with NO System colors” mode is selected, the
“Enable Dithering” check box will be grayed-out, and dithering will be
automatically disabled regardless of whether this check box is
checked. This complies with the Windows standard interface method.
Monitor Configuration
This option allows you to select the number of monitors that the
current display boards should drive, as well as how the monitors
should be positioned. For example, if the current board installation is
capable of driving four heads, but you only have three monitors which
are placed in a single row, then you can select the “Three monitors –
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
61
BarcoMed controller tools
one row” option from the pull-down list. This would cause the
Windows virtual desktop to be resized to fit on the three monitors, and
you can move your cursor horizontally from one screen to the other.
If “Custom Configuration” is displayed, it means that the current
monitor configuration was set via the registry and it doesn’t agree with
any of the configurations that the display control panel supports.
Contact BarcoView Medical Imaging Systems for further information.

BARCO DPMS SCREEN SAVER
OVERVIEW
Introduction
The BARCO DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling) Screen
Saver allows the user to set power and display saving features for
medical displays driven by BarcoMed Display Controllers. At the end
of the work day, the display will enter certain DPMS states as
requested by the display controller.
The default state for the BARCO DPMS Screen Saver is the Off state.
In addition to simply entering the Off state after the work day, the user
can specify that the display first go through two other DPMS Screen
Saver states before going into Off state. These two other states for the
Screen Saver are Stand-By and Suspend. The user can specify how
much time should be spent in each state in the “Amount of Time in
each DPMS Power State” section.
A valuable feature of the BARCO DPMS Screen Saver is that it will
automatically ensure that Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) based displays
are warmed up for the start of the work day. All CRT based displays
require some warm-up time before they are at full performance.
On CRT based displays, such as the Barco MGD series, a “regular”
screen saver can be invoked during user inactivity during the work
day. This “regular” screen saver and its settings can be chosen from
the “Screen Saver During Work Day” section. We recommend using
an all black screen saver, such as the “Barco Blank Screen” saver, for
the longest phosphor life.
On Barco CORONIS displays, the I-GUARD will stabilize the image
within a few seconds after the display returns to the active state, thus
eliminating the need for a warm-up period at the beginning of the work
day.
On Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) based displays, such as the Barco
CORONIS displays, it is not necessary to invoke a screen saver as
there is no CRT phosphor to preserve. However, one can extend the
life of the backlight in the LCD display, in addition to realizing great
power savings, during period of user inactivity by using DPMS to
quickly enter the Off state. We recommend setting the work day to be
as short as possible to get the maximum power savings on CORONIS
displays.
The BARCO DPMS Screen Saver can also be used when no one is
logged on.

BARCO DPMS Screen Saver Options
From the “BARCO DPMS Screen Saver Control Panel” you can
change many DPMS screen saver elements simultaneously. The
DPMS screen saver elements in each scheme are work schedule,
work day screen saver, DPMS settings after work day, and many
additional options.
Current Scheme
Lists the three “DEFAULT” schemes which you can use as they are.
Or you can modify them to meet your office’s schedule.
Save As
Saves your current BARCO DPMS Screen Saver settings. The name
you specify will appear in the Scheme list so you can easily restore
these settings later.
Delete
Deletes the scheme that is selected in the Scheme box.
Work Schedule
In this part of the control panel the user may specify the “Begin Work
Day” and “End Work Day” times for each work day. If the system is not
expected to be used, leave both the “Begin Work Day” and the “End
Work Day” times as the same time.
Begin Work Day
The “Begin Work Day” time is the time after which the system is
expected to start being used. During the work day, the screen saver
selected by the user in the “Screen Saver During Work Day” section is
used during user inactivity.
End Work Day
The “End Work Day” time is the time after which the system is not
expected to be used any more for that day. After the work day, the
display is set to one of the DPMS states (Stand-By, Suspend, or Off)
by the display controller during user inactivity.

Screen Saver During Work Day
On CRT based displays, such as the Barco MGD series, a “regular”
screen saver can be invoked during user inactivity during the work
day. This “regular” screen saver and its settings can be chosen from
the “Screen Saver During Work Day” section. We recommend using

DPMS Settings After Work Day
If you have an display controller that supports DPMS calls, then you
will be able to set the DPMS Settings for after the work day.
Otherwise, a text box will be displayed telling you why DPMS
functions are not available.
Amount of Time in each DPMS State
After the work day, the display will be placed into one of the following
DPMS Power States: Stand-By, Suspend, or Off. The default setting is
for the display to directly go into the Off State and spend no time in
the Stand-By or Suspend states. If the user wishes to go into the
Stand-By or Suspend states before going into the Off state, select the
required amount of time for each state.
If requested, the display will first go into Stand-By state, then into
Suspend state, and then into Off state. The properties of DPMS states
are listed in the following table:

Monitor Settings
Select the amount of time the display requires to warm-up. Since all
CRT based displays require some warm-up time before they are at full
performance, this ensures that the display is ready for use at the
beginning of the work day.
If you have a Barco Medical Display, select “Barco Quick Start.” If a
non-Barco display is being used, select the amount of time it takes
your display to warm up via the “Monitor Setting” section. Contact your
display vendor for this warm-up time.
On Barco CORONIS displays, the I-GUARD will stabilize the image
within a few seconds after the display returns to the active state so
there is no need for a warm-up time period.
Use As Logon Screen Saver
Check the box to use the BARCO DPMS Screen Saver when no one
is logged into the system.
Uncheck the box to use the default screen saver when no one is
logged into the system.
Getting started with the BARCO DPMS
Screen Saver
The easiest way to get started is to select an existing settings scheme
and then modify it with your preferences. Settings schemes are
separated into two kinds, DEFAULT (global) and PRIVATE (personal).
Upon installation, three default settings schemes are installed and no
private settings schemes are installed.
Default settings schemes are visible to all users of the system.
However, they can be modified only by users with administrator
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
72
BarcoMed controller tools
privileges. If a user who does not have administrator privileges tries to
save a scheme using an existing default scheme name, an error
message is displayed saying “you must have administrator rights to
modify a default scheme.” If an administrator saves a scheme using
an existing default scheme name, a message is displayed to tell the
user that the modification is saved to a default scheme and will be
visible to all users. If the administrator saves a scheme using a new
name, then the user is asked if the scheme should be saved as a
default scheme or a private scheme. Since there is no distinction
between how a default scheme and a private scheme is displayed, it
is highly recommended that the user uses a different naming
convention to distinguish the two (i.e. use “DEFAULT: ...” for default
schemes).
Private schemes are personal. They are not shared and are visible
only to the users who created them. All users of a system, including
those who do not have administrator privileges, can create, modify or
delete private schemes. When the delete button is pressed, the user
is asked to confirm the delete request.
Using the BARCO DPMS Screen Saver
Using the Barco DPMS Screen Saver is similar to using any other
Windows Screen Saver, each user of the system must select the
Barco DPMS Screen Saver so that Windows will store the selection in
the user’s profile. If a user does not select the BARCO DPMS Screen
Saver as his screen saver, the next time he logs on to the system the
screen saver selection may be blank.
After selecting the BARCO DPMS Screen Saver the user must then
select a settings scheme for the Screen Saver to follow. To set up the
BARCO DPMS Screen Saver using one of the three default schemes,
please do the following:
1. Open the “Display Properties Control Panel” by right clicking on an
empty space of the desktop and selecting “Properties” from the
drop down menu; then select the “Screen Saver” tab (see figures
32, 33 and 34 on the next two pages).
2. Select the “Barco DPMS Screen Saver” in the “Screen Saver”
drop down menu if it is not already selected.

Note: If you make any changes to any of the settings of one of the
three default schemes, the Current Scheme field will blank and you
MUST SAVE your changes by clicking on the “Save As ...” button.
When you click on the “Save As ...” button, the name of the last
scheme you used will be automatically displayed, you can then
choose to use that scheme name or enter a new name. If you
enter a name other than one of the three default scheme names,
the program will ask you if you wish to save the scheme as a
DEFAULT scheme (see figure 36 on the next page). Click “Yes” to
save the settings scheme as a DEFAULT scheme, click “No” to
save the scheme as a PRIVATE scheme. After you have saved the
scheme, then click OK and the new scheme will be in effect.

INTRODUCTION
Overview
Resolution and bandwidths
The BARCO MGD 521 M and MGD 521 MKII displays are ultra-high
resolution, grayscale portrait displays. Their outstanding visual
performance, combining a 5 MegaPixel resolution with a very high
brightness, makes them ideal for diagnostic imaging and many other
medical and scientific applications.
The displays are compatible with any AC power system worldwide and
automatically synchronise to a wide range of sync frequencies. their
high-speed video amplifiers support pixel clocks up to 500 MHz (MGD
521 M: 550 MHz).
The memory system
The internal memory system can contain the adjustments for 16
different scanning formats, the so-called scanning modes. Each
scanning format is characterized by its sync signals. The display’s
internal micro controller continuously samples the connected sync
signals and compares them to the scanning modes already stored in
the memory. If the connected signal has already been stored, the
micro controller adapts the image to the corresponding adjustment
values in the memory, and further adjustments are unnecessary.
Image conformity and consistency
Image conformity and consistency are the keywords. In our factory,
the MGD 521 displays are perfectly adjusted and calibrated before
they are shipped to the customer. Internal circuits, like the TrueGrey®
and Automatic White Stability (AWS) systems, ensure display
consistency over time.
Conformity with the original image quality is guaranteed by the
automatic calibration, which can be done by means of an optical
sensor, connected to the Sensor connector on the display. The sensor
is not supplied with the display.
Calibration and adjustments
The conformity calibration, as well as the complete adjustment of the
display, can be performed by means of the remote, user-friendly
MediCal® software package. MediCal is especially developed to
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
89
Display User Manual
adjust and check BARCO’s medical displays.
A lot of adjustments can also be done on the monitor itself, by means
of an extensive on-screen menu system, accessible from the rear
panel controls.
Power saving system
The MGD 521 displays are equipped with a power saving system.
When left idle for a certain time, the computer, connected to the
display, will power down the display in several steps. The power
saving system can be switched on or off during the installation or
adjustment of the display.
This system requires a computer imaging board that supports power
saving management.

-
A video input terminated to 50 Ohm requires an imaging board with
an impedance of 50 Ohm. A video input terminated to 75 Ohm
requires an imaging board with an impedance of 75 Ohm.
-
The type of CRT phosphors and the video input termination are
indicated on the label at the rear of the display.
Important:
It is absolutely necessary that the impedances of imaging board and
display are the same. If not, the image quality will be inferior.

Signal connection
a) Connection of video signals
!
The connected equipment must comply to all relevant safety
demands.
Important: The use of low-quality video cables can distort the video
signal and influence diagnosis.
1. Check the impedance of the imaging board that produces the
video signals you want to connect. It must be 50 or 75 Ohm (just
like the input of the display). If not, the quality of the images on the
display will be inferior.
2. Connect the video output of the computer’s imaging board to the
video and sync inputs on the display’s rear panel. Use a proper
video cable. The video cable is not supplied with the display,
unless the display comes as part of a complete BARCO MeDis
system, that also contains an imaging board.
The inputs accept the following signals:
• Video with separate horizontal and vertical sync.
-
The video cable has 3 wires.
-
Connect the video signal to the connector Video {7}.
-
Connect the horizontal sync signal to the connector HS/CS
{8}.
-
Connect the vertical sync signal to the connector VS {9}.
• Video with external composite sync.
-
The video cable has 2 wires.
-
Connect the video signal to the connector Video {7}.
-
Connect the composite sync signal to the connector HS/CS
{8}.
• Video with internal composite sync (sync on video).
-
The video cable has 1 wire.
-
Connect the video (with sync) signal to the connector Video
{7}.
-
The vertical sync pulse must be at least 2 lines long.
Notes:
•
The video inputs cannot be connected in loop-through (daisychain).
•
The required video amplitude: 700 mV.
•
The required sync. amplitude: 500 mV.
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM

Display User Manual
b) Connection of data signals
The display can be controlled remotely by a computer through the
serial data bus. A typical example of this, is the MediCal software that
controls the display. MediCal runs on a PC that is connected through
the serial data bus. This PC is not necessarily the same computer as
the one that produces the video signals.
Unlike the video signals, it is possible to daisy-chain the serial data
bus. This means you can control different displays from one PC.
To connect the data signals:
1. Connect one end of the serial data cable to one of the PC’s COM
ports. If the COM port has a 25-pin connector, you will need to use
a D25-to-D9 interface connector. The cable and the interface
connector are both supplied with MediCal.
2. Connect the other end of the serial data cable to the Remote In
connector {6} on the display’s rear panel.
3. For a daisy-chain application, connect the Remote Out connector
{5} of the first display to the Remote In connector {6} of the next
display.
c) Connection of optical sensor
To calibrate the display, connect the optical sensor
to the Sensor connector {1} at the front.
Notes:
•
The display supports the DTP 92 from X-Rite as
optical sensor.
•
The optical sensor is not supplied by BARCO.
•
Calibration can be done by means of MediCal
only.
•
Always use the Ambient Light Shield
during calibration.

d) Connection of power
1. Power cord: Utilize a UL-listed detachable power cord, 3-wire, type
SJ or equivalent, 18 AWG min., rated 300 V min., provided with a
hospital-grade type plug 5-15P configuration for 120V application,
or 6-15P for 240V application.
2. Plug one end of the power cord into the rear of the display
(connector LINE {10}). Plug the other end into a grounded AC
power outlet. The display automatically adapts to the voltage. The
voltage range is: 100-240 VAC +/- 10%.
Positioning the display
The tilt and swivel base allows you to adjust the height and viewing
angle of the display to obtain an optimal viewing comfort.

Important considerations
•
The best environment for diagnostic imaging is one with
controlled and dimmed ambient light. The human eye's
sensitivity depends on the ambient light strength. It is most
sensitive to small contrast changes (or subtle image details)
at limited ambient light levels.
•
The best ambient light level, expressed in Lux, depends on
the application. An office illumination typically requires 500
Lux. A dimmed environment, like a softcopy room, requires
less than 100 Lux.
•
Using your display in a controlled and dimmed environment
also extends its lifetime, because the display can operate at
limited brightness and contrast. These levels correspond to
the calibrated position in most cases.
•
A controlled ambient light environment implies the ambient
light is as constant as possible. Cover windows to keep out
the daylight. Avoid switching the lights and viewing boxes on
and off. A consistent environment results in more image
consistency and less eye fatigue.
•
Avoid reflections in the picture tube. Provide indirect lighting.
Don't place the displays in front of or close to a light source
like a window or viewing box, although this may be very
tempting. As a rule of thumb, keep viewing boxes at least
one metre (3 feet) away from the displays.

OPERATION: USER CONTROLS
Important:
The best way to adjust and control the display is by using MediCal,
which displays the ideal test patterns for correct adjustment. However,
in case you do not dispose of MediCal, you can control and adjust the
display by means of the built-in On-Screen Display (OSD).
Switching on / off
Power on/off
Press the Power button {11} on the rear panel to switch on the
display. The green LED at the front is off when the display is
operating.
If the display starts up with no image and the green LED {3} on, it is in
stand-by. This is the case when the display was powered down while
in stand-by.
Manual stand-by
To put the display in manual stand-by mode, press the control knob
{4} shortly. As a result, the green LED is ON continuously.
Note: You cannot switch the display in manual stand-by when the onscreen display (OSD) is visible. In that case, first exit the OSD, and
then press the control knob to switch to stand-by mode.
To activate the display from stand-by mode, press the control knob {4}
again. As a result, the LED is switched off again.
Automatic power saving system (DPMS)
The power saving system, if switched on, can power down the display
when you don't use the computer that produces the video and sync.
signals for a while. In that way, the system reduces the display's
power consumption.
While the display is powered down, the picture tube will be blanked,
and the green LED on the front is on.
The power saving system is switched off when the display is
produced. It can be switched on by a qualified technician.
Note: The power saving system can only work if the connected
imaging board supports power management.

APPENDIX A:
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
Luminance Uniformity Correction
A characteristic (or limitation) of every picture tube (CRT) is that the
luminance decreases towards the edge of the screen surface. The
decrease is normally 20 to 30 %.
This is caused by the shape of the picture tube. Inside the CRT, a socalled electron gun shoots an electron beam towards the front (the
glass panel). Because this panel is rather flat instead of having a
spheric shape, the electron beam has to 'travel' a longer distance in
the corners than in the center. So the intensity is higher in the center.
This phenomenon is even increased by the irregular distribution of the
phosphor and aluminium layer on the glass panel. These tend to be
thicker in the center.
BARCO has developed a special system, called Luminance
Uniformity Correction (LUC), that solves this problem. The LUC
system enhances the light output at the edges of the CRT, so that the
luminance there is the same as in the center.
The LUC system is calibrated in the factory. From time to time, it has
to be re-calibrated at the customer's site by means of the light sensor
you use for normal color calibration. The system can be calibrated
and switched on or off by a qualified technician.
Power saving system
The display is equipped with circuits that can handle power saving
management. When the system is switched on, it can power down the
display in several steps.
The system is controlled by the imaging board or the PC that delivers
the video signals. When you are working on the computer, the
imaging board delivers both sync signals, and the display is operating
normally. When you don't touch the computer keyboard for a certain
time, the imaging board only delivers vertical sync. This is sensed by
the display's micro controller, that blanks the image on the CRT. This
results in a drop of power consumption with about 25 %.
When you leave the computer idle for a longer period, the imaging
board now delivers horizontal sync only. As a result, the display's
micro controller switches off a number of internal circuits. The power
consumption has now dropped with about 42 %.
System manual MeDis 5MP1HM
115
Display User Manual
At last, the imaging board delivers no sync signals at all, and the
micro-controller switches off all but one power supplies in the display.
Only the micro-controller's own supply keeps on running, resulting in a
very low power consumption of 5 W.
If you start using the computer again, the imaging board switches on
both sync signals, and the micro-controller switches on the display.
The times after which the different steps of power management must
become active, is set in the PC's display properties.
