Recommendations for using your display system
Recommendations for using your
display system
1. Optimize the lifetime of your display
Enabling the Display Power Management System (DPMS) of your display
(in the display’s Settings menu) will optimize its diagnostic lifetime by
automatically switching off the backlight when the display is not used
for a specified period of time. By default, DPMS is enabled on your
display, but it also needs to be activated on your workstation. To do this,
go to “Power Options Properties” in the “Control Panel”.
Barco recommends setting DPMS activation after 20 minutes of
non-usage.
2. Use a screen saver to avoid image retention
Prolonged operation of an LCD with the same content on the same
screen area may result in a form of image retention.
You can avoid or significantly reduce the occurrence of this phenomenon
by using a screen saver. You can activate a screen saver in the “Display
properties” window of your workstation.
Barco recommends setting screen saver activation after 5 minutes
of non-usage. A good screen saver displays moving content.
In case you are working with the same image or an application with
static image elements for several hours continuously (so that the screen
saver is not activated), change the image content regularly to avoid
image retention of the static elements.
3. Understand pixel technology
LCD displays use technology based on pixels. As a normal tolerance in
the manufacturing of the LCD, a limited number of these pixels may
remain either dark or permanently lit, without affecting the diagnostic
21
Recommendations for using your display system
performance of the product. To ensure optimal product quality, Barco
applies strict selection criteria for its LCD panels.
To learn more about LCD technology and missing pixels, consult
the dedicated white paper available at www.barcomedical.com.
4. Enhance user comfort
Every Barco multi-head display system is color matched with the highest
specification in the market.
Barco recommends keeping color-matched displays together.
Furthermore, it is important to use all displays of a multi-head
configuration at the same rate to preserve color matching
throughout the economic lifetime of the system.
5. Maximize Quality Assurance
The ‘MediCal QAWeb’ system offers online service for high-grade Quality
Assurance, providing maximum diagnostic confidence and uptime.

individual pixel DICOM-compliant.
The PPU technology operates transparently and in real-time.
28
BarcoMed 5MP2FH Overview
Defect Pixel Compensation (DPC)
Current Liquid Crystal Displays contain some missing pixels. These socalled defect pixels can be problematic because you might miss critical
information in a mammography image.
Barco's Coronis 5MP Mammo flat panel has Defect Pixel Compensation
(DPC) technology.
DPC detects and identifies the missing pixels in each individual display.

Figure 3: The BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller
38
Installing the BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller
Jumper location
There is one user settable jumper on the BarcoMed 5MP2F. It is used to enable
or disable the VGA capabilites of the display controller.
Figure 4: VGA Jumper Enlarged View
Using the VGAcapabilities of the BarcoMed 5MP2FH
Prior to installing the BarcoMed 5MP2F, 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 graphics board. (See VGA Jumper, J-1, Figures 3 and 4) By
default, VGA should be enabled, on the top two pins.
NOTE: To use multiple 5MP2F display controllers in a single host
with VGA enabled, you need to enable VGA on only ONE of the
5MP2F display controllers and disable VGA on ALL other BarcoMed
display controllers.
Examples of PCI slots
Although the BarcoMed 5MP2FH has a 64 bit PCI connector, it functions
as a 32 bit board. It may be installed in either a 32 bit or 64 bit slot
with no loss of functionality. Figure 5 illustrates the types of slots so that
you can correctly identify which one to use for the BarcoMed 5MP2FH.
39
Installing the BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller
Figure 5: PCI and RAID Controller Slots
Install the BarcoMed 5MP2FH controller in your computer
following these steps:
1. Turn off the power to your computer and disconnect the power
cord, however make sure that the computer chassis is still
grounded.
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
BarcoMed 5MP2FH (see Using the VGAcapabilities of the
BarcoMed 5MP2FH on page 39), you must now remove any VGA
display controller(s) that are currently installed in the computer.
4. Install the BarcoMed 5MP2FH Controller into a free PCI slot, either
32 bit or 64 bit (see figure 2, for examples of slots). Be sure that
the display 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 primary display (left most display in a linear
configuration, top most in a vertical configuration) to the
uppermost connector on the BarcoMed 5MP2FH (the output
farthest from the motherboard – “Head 1” in figure 6 on page 41)
using the provided DVI cable. For a dual-headed BarcoMed
5MP2FH setup, connect the secondary display to the other
connector on the display controller.
40
Installing the BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller
7. Replace the chassis cover, reconnect the power cord, turn on the
power, and boot the system as usual.
Running multiple BarcoMed 5MP2F display controllers in
a single host
The physical order of the displays may vary when you are running
multiple BarcoMed 5MP2F display controllers. This is due to the PC’s PCI
bus control in the system BIOS, and not the BarcoMed display controller.
It may become necessary, depending on how your PC’s BIOS configures
the PCI bus, to switch your DVI display connections to achieve a linear
desktop configuration.

orientation while an image is on the screen, the result depends on your
application:
• In a Coronis system, the image orientation will adapt to the new
panel orientation automatically after a second.
• If the I-switch software is installed and enabled, the image
resolution will also be adapted automatically to the new panel
orientation.
• If you use the display stand-alone, the image orientation will
not change with the panel orientation.
Only the orientation of the on-screen display (OSD) will change
automatically in case “Orientation” in the OSD Geometry menu is
set to “Automatic”.
To change the orientation of the image, you will have to change
the resolution in the Windows Display control panel (if possible).

Attaching the display to an arm stand
Attaching the display to an arm stand
The panel, standard attached to the tilt & swivel foot, is compatible with
the VESA 100 mm standard. So it can be used with an arm stand
according to the VESA 100 mm standard.
Therefore, the tilt & swivel foot must be removed from the panel.
Important:
• Use an arm that is approved by VESA (according to the VESA 100
mm standard).
• Use an arm that can support a weight of at least 13 kg (28.66
lbs).
To attach the display to an arm stand:
1. Put the display face down on a clean and soft surface. Be careful
not to damage the panel screen.
2. Remove the tilt & swivel foot cover.
3. Remove the small screw (A) fixing the small plastic cover on top of
the foot. Next, remove the small cover itself.

Preparation
Prior to installing your Coronis 5MP Mammo software the following
should be done.
1. Install the BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller in your system.
2. Connect the Coronis 5MP Mammo display panel(s) to the
BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller and power supply.
3. Decide if you want to install the Barco DPMS Screen Saver and the
Coronis I-Switch Software in addition to the driver.
4. Decide if you are going to install the BarcoMed 5MP2FH driver with
DualView enabled or disabled.
5. Decide what palette mode you want to use.
6. Decide if you want to enable the DirectDraw capabilities of the
BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller.
Caution: Both displays connected to a single display controller
must have the same physical orientation and resolution in order to
be attached to the Windows desktop. This is a requirement of the
Windows operating system.
Using the BarcoMed Product Installation Wizard
To install your Coronis 5MP Mammo Windows Display Controller Driver,
Barco DPMS Screen Saver and the Coronis I-Switch Software for the first

Palette Mode
In the Palette Mode section you can choose one of the four following
Palette Modes.If you are using a color display in conjunction with your
Barco grayscale display(s) under Windows 2000 or Windows XP, prior to
selecting a palette mode please make certain that you have configured
your Window 2000 or Windows XP desktop correctly. (See the section
“Configuring the Windows 2000 or Windows XP desktop” on
page 125.)
Color to Gray Compatibility
Use this palette option for applications, such as Java, which require True
Color support. Such applications may not work correctly when using one
of Barco's three “Standard 8-bit (256-color)” palette modes. All
applications that are designed to work correctly with 8-bit (256-color)
modes should continue to work normally.
Please note that dithering is not used 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.
Also, please note that direct access to the hardware through DirectDraw
is not allowed in this mode. The Enable DirectDraw check box will be
67
BarcoMed Driver Tab
grayed-out, and DirectDraw’s access to the hardware will be
automatically disabled regardless of whether this check box is checked.
DirectDraw is still usable through DirectDraw’s Hardware Emulation
Layer.
UserModifiable Color Palette
This option allows applications to modify the palette contents
dynamically. As indicated in figure 30, 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.
Figure 30
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 figure 31, the 20 standard system colors are converted
from RGB to gray values. The rest of the 236 entries from index 10 to
245 contain the missing gray values so that the palette has the full 256
gray values within it.
68
BarcoMed Driver Tab
Figure 31
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 figure 31, 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.
Figure 32
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
69
BarcoMed Driver Tab
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 with NO System colors” mode, contact
your application provider.
Drawing Modes
In the Drawing Mode section you can choose from the following
Drawing Modes. If any of the options in this section are grayed out, then
they are not available for the model controller with which you are
working.
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 device-independent 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). DirectDraw is enabled by
default.
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
70
BarcoMed Driver Tab
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.
Disable 10-bit grayscale
Use this option for standard Windows®-based applications that require
8-bit color support (256 colors), such as Internet Explorer, Excel, etc.
Do not use this option for applications that require 10-bit pixel support
(1024 simultaneous shades of gray) and use extended depth graphic
libraries such as WinBarco.
Description of 10-bit grayscale
To show 1024 simultaneous shades of gray all BarcoMed “H” series
display controllers, such as the BarcoMed 1MP2FH, 2MP2H, 5MP2FH,
BarcoMed Coronis or BarcoMed Coronis 5MP for example, run in
extended depth (10-bit) mode by default.
Implications
When turned on the “Disable Extended Depth” option causes a
BarcoMed “H” series display controller to run in 8-bit mode, which
results in increased performance since the frame buffer is set to run
with 8-bit pixels. While this option may be used with applications that
normally require 10-bit support, there will be a loss of pixel depth, i.e.
256 shades of gray instead of 1024 simultaneous shades of gray.
71
BarcoMed Driver Tab
Disable RGB To Static Gray Color Translation
You must have Administrator privileges for this machine to be able to
change this option. If you do not have Administrator privileges, this
option will be grayed out.
Select Disable RGB To Static Gray Color Translation if you wish to have
RGB values equally weighted, with 1/3 each.
When not selected, then the International Commission on Illumination
(CIE – Commission Internationale de I’Eclairage) model will be adapted,
which weights the colors as 59% Green, 30% Red, 11% Blue.
Monitor Configuration
Note: If the options in this section are grayed out, then they are
not available for the model controller with which you are working.

Barco DPMS Screen Saver
Barco DPMS Screen Saver
Introduction
The BARCO DPMS (Display Power Management Signaling) Screen Saver
allows the user to set power and display saving features for medical
displays controlled by BarcoMed Display Controllers. At the end of the
work day, the display will enter certain DPMS states as requested by the
display controller.
Note: The Barco DPMS Screen Save will not control any displays
connected to a non-Barco 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.
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.
73
Barco DPMS Screen Saver
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.
74
Barco DPMS Screen Saver
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 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 quickly entering the Off state. We recommend setting

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
75
Barco DPMS Screen Saver
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:

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 nonBarco 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.

Barco DPMS Screen Saver
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 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.
77
Barco DPMS Screen Saver
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 figure
figure 33 on page 78 and figure figure 34 on page 79).

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 (figure 36 below). 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.

Coronis I-Switch Software
Coronis I-Switch Software
Overview
Note: The CORONIS I-Switch Software is only available for systems
which have the Portrait Accelerator in the CORONIS Display Panel
and BarcoMed Display Driver releases that include the CORONIS ISwitch Software. The CORONIS I-Switch Software may not be
available for your system.
The CORONIS I-Switch Software is designed to detect changes in the
physical orientation of the rotatable CORONIS flat-panel display(s) and
to change the resolution of the display to match the physical orientation
of the display. The CORONIS I-Switch Software will support up to eight
CORONIS flat-panel displays on four BarcoMed Display Controllers. The
CORONIS I-Switch Software supports Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
The CORONIS I-Switch Software is designed to react only to changes in
physical orientation of the CORONIS flat-panel displays, not to changes
in screen resolution effected from the Windows Display Control Panel.
The CORONIS I-Switch Software functions only after the CORONIS
Windows Display Controller Drivers have been installed, the resolution
set using the Windows Display Control Panel and the CORONIS I-Switch
Software has been installed.
CORONIS I-Switch Software has a limited user interface available through
an icon in the system status tray. The system tray icon is just a toggle to
put the service to sleep. During this sleeping phase, the Service will
continue to track changes in the physical orientation. The service will
use these saved settings to set the appropriate state model on startup.
Windows 2000 and Windows XP
Although Windows 2000 and Windows XP support multiple types of
display controllers, they support only one resolution per display
controller. Rotating a single head on any given BarcoMed Display
Controller will affect both of the heads connected to that display
83
Coronis I-Switch Software
controller. If you change the physical orientation of one CORONIS display
connected to any given BarcoMed Display Controller, the CORONIS ISwitch Software will change the resolution for both of the CORONIS
displays connected to that BarcoMed Display Controller and you will
need to change the physical orientation of the second display to match
the orientation of the first display.
Installation or Reinstallation
To install or reinstall the CORONIS I-Switch Software insert the BarcoMed
Software CD in the appropriate device on your computer and run the
BarcoMed Software Install Wizard and select only the CORONIS I-Switch
Software (please see the section Software Installation for complete
instructions).
Removal of CORONIS I-Switch Software
To remove the CORONIS I-Switch Software from your system use the
Windows “Add/Remove Programs” utility found in the Windows
Control Panel.
Or you may remove the CORONIS I-Switch Software from your system by
doing the following:
1. Click on the Windows “Start” button.
2. Click on “Run".
3. Type the following text in the dialog box: "cmd".
4. Click on "OK".
5. Type the following text in the command line window:
“coronisrotationservice /uninstall”
6. When the program has finished, closed the command line window.

The Barco Display Tab is used for gathering information about the
BarcoMed Flat Panel Display(s).
To access the Barco Display Tab do the following:
1. Open the “Display Properties Control Panel” by right clicking on the
desktop, then select “Properties”.
2. Under Windows® 2000 and Windows® XP, click on the “Settings”

Barco Display Tab
Using the Barco Display Tab
Displays
All of the available display controllers that are of the same type as the
current barco display controller are shown here graphically, with one
display icon representing each output of a display controller. The icon
orientation reflects the display resolution. Only those outputs with a
display attached to them are active. If an icon is grayed out, that
indicates a output with no output attached to it. When running
DualView under Windows 2000 and Windows XP the desktop must be
extended to include each display, otherwise those outputs will not be
visible to the Barco Display Tab.
Hovering the cursor over a display icon will pop up a window with
information that identifies the display.
Properties
You may access the Properties page of the currently selected display,
which is represented by the monitor icon above with the black frame
around it, by either clicking on the “Properties” button or double
clicking on the icon.
BarcoMFD library
This is the version of the barcomfd library currently used. This library
provides APIs for interacting with the displays.
CORONIS Display Properties
This screen (figure 39) shows properties of the currently active display.
Name: Displays the model name of the display.
Serial Number: Displays the serial number of the display.
Backlight RunTime: This is time in hours that the back light has been
on. A common question is: How much longer will the backlight last? The
86
Barco Display Tab
backlight will typically last a very long time, but will only be able to
hold a calibrated output of 500 cd/m² for 17000 hours, after which
time it will become slowly dimmer. For displays calibrated at 500 cd/
m², an estimate of how long it will be before a backlight replacement is
needed = 17000 hours – backlight age.
Firmware Revisions: This is the runtime firmware that is loaded in the
display. This information may be helpful when there is a problem.
Internal Temperature: This is the temperature inside the display. It
starts out at about the ambient temperature when the display backlight
is first turned on, then rises slowly to a steady-state temperature as the
display warms up. Changes in light level due to temperature variations
are completely controlled by the I-Guard sensor on the front of the
display.
Current Luminance Value: This is the current luminance value of the
display. It may vary a bit from time to time, for the display continuously
calibrates itself to meet the target luminance value.

Operating precautions
Continuous operation of the display with the same image may result in
some image sticking on the LCD panel. Over 10 hours operation with the
same image content is not recommended.
Switching on DPMS on display and PC and activating a good screen saver
may decrease the risk of image sticking (image retention).
Stand-by switching
When the display is on and no on-screen display is visible, push and
hold the control wheel at the front for a few seconds to switch the

It may be possible that dust particles have entered the display and are
stuck behind the front glass.
We recommend to let this cleaning procedure be done in a BARCO
service center. The product warranty expires when the user
removes the glass panel or otherwise opens the display.
However, when really necessary, you can perform the cleaning on site if
you can work in dust-free conditions. This is to avoid more dust entering
the display when opening it.
To remove the glass panel:
Figure 45
1. Switch off the display.
2. Tilt the panel.
3. Unscrew the 4 sunken screws at the rear, fixing the glass panel
and bezel (figure 45).
4. Carefully take the glass panel a few centimeter from the display. It
is still connected to the rest of the display by means of the LED
connection.
5. Unplug the LED connection (figure 46).
108
LCD panel
Figure 46
To clean the LCD panel:
• Take care not to touch the I-guard light sensor on the LCD panel.
• Dust particles on the LCD panel may be blown away by using a
dust remover. E.g., DUST OFF 67 (KONTAKT Chemie).
A dust remover is composed of a blend of compressed liquid gases
functioning as propellant. They provide a jet of dry inert gas that
acts like compressed air for a quick and safe removal of dust
particles and other dry contaminants on the surface of the lcd
panel or the glass panel.
Attention: The dust remover contains a liquid gas. If you shake the
can or move the can too fast while spraying, you may blow drops
of liquid on the panel surface!
If this is the case, clean the panel as described below.
• If the LCD panel is dirty or wet, clean the panel using a lint-free,
nonabrasive cloth, lightly moistened with a solution of 25%
Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) and 75% de-ionized or distilled water.
E.g.: Cleareen, a product of Certified Laboratories.
• Take another clean, dry, soft, lint-free cloth and gently wipe the
glass dry.

The previous image
remains slightly visible on
the screen
•
This phenomenon, called “image
sticking” is normal if the same
image has been on the screen for a
long time. The ghost image will
disappear after some time.
Over 10 hours operation with the
same image content is not
recommended. Switching on the
display DPMS may decrease the risk
of image sticking.
•
A slight case of image sticking can
be solved by continuously
displaying a full white image during
a number of hours.
•
Switch the video cables at the
display controller or at the display
video inputs
On a dual-head system,

Display resolution
Display resolution
If you are using a color display in conjunction with your Barco
grayscale display(s) you should configure your desktop before
setting the resolution of the your Barco grayscale display(s).
Configuring the Windows 2000 or Windows XP desktop
Under Windows 2000 or Windows XP the recommended configuration
for best grayscale image quality when using a color display in
conjunction with your high-resolution grayscale display(s) is to set the
color display as the primary monitor. Then set the colors setting on the
“Settings” tab of the Windows Display Control Panel to the highest
possible color depth (e.g. 32 bits-per-pixel “true color”) supported by
the color display’s controller.
The colors setting for your high-resolution grayscale displays should
default to 256 colors (8 bits per pixel). The palette mode for the your
high-resolution grayscale displays should be set to Static Gray palette
with NO system colors. This guarantees that the all of the 256 gray
levels available for GDI graphics will be present, and also eliminates the
danger that colors will change when focus moves among different
applications.
However, if you are using the Color to Gray Conversion palette mode,
the color setting for your high-resolution grayscale displays should
default to True Color (32 bits per pixel). Even though this palette mode
supports 32 bit True Color, we recommend that when using a using a
color display in conjunction with your high-resolution grayscale
display(s) that you still set the color display as the primary monitor.
125
Display resolution
Setting the resolution of your Coronis 5MP
Mammo display
In order to set the resolution of your Coronis 5MP Mammo display
you must be logged in using an account with administrator
privileges.
1. To set the resolution of your Coronis 5MP Mammo display(s) right
click on the desktop and select “Properties”.
2. Select the “Settings” tab.
3. Select the rectangle that represents the first Coronis 5MP Mammo
display attached to the BarcoMed 5MP2FH Display Controller you
are working with.
NOTE: If you are using the VGA capabilities of your BarcoMed
5MP2FH Display Controller, the resolution for the first display may
be set to a VGA resolution of “640 x 480” pixels with 16 colors and
a default refresh rate. If your BarcoMed 5MP2FH controller is not
running VGA, the display may not be enabled yet. To enable the
display, check the “Extend my Windows desktop onto this
monitor” checkbox, but do NOT click the “Apply” button at this
time.
If you installed your BarcoMed 5MP2FH drivers in SingleView
mode (default for Windows 2000) there will be one rectangle for
the virtual display representing the two heads controlled by each
BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller.
If you installed your BarcoMed 5MP2FH drivers in DualView mode
(default for Windows XP) there will be a rectangle representing
each head controlled by each BarcoMed 5MP2FH display controller.
This will be true even if you have only one display connected to
your BarcoMed 5MP2FH controller. Both displays of a display
controller cannot be enabled at the same time unless their display
properties match. If necessary detach the second display of the
BarcoMed 5MP2FH Display Controller you are working with by
right clicking on the rectangle that represents it, deselect
“Attached” and click the “Apply” button.
126
Display resolution
Tip: Since Windows 2000 and Windows XP will not let you detach
the primary display connected to a particular controller, you may
need to temporarily make another display the primary display
Caution: if you have a single display configuration and you have
enabled DualView, Windows will not allow you to attach the
second head. This is normal and not a bug.
4. For the display which is still attached click on the “Advanced”

the First View or the Second View attached to the Display
Controller. Please make a note of this, so that you can arrange the
displays in the correct order later if necessary.
6. Click “OK” on the bottom of the Adapter Control Panel. If the “OK”
button on the bottom of the Adapter Control Panel is not visible,
press the “TAB” key once and then press “CTRL”+“Enter” to select
“OK”.
7. Click “OK” in the “Windows will now apply your new desktop
settings” dialog box. Your Coronis 5MP Mammo display should
now synchronize and display the Windows desktop.
8. Click “Yes” when asked, “Your desktop has been reconfigured. Do
you want to keep these settings?”
To set the resolution of the second display attached to the BarcoMed
Display Controller you are working with, go back to the “Settings” tab of
the “Display Properties Control Panel”. Attach the display you detached
in step 2 above, by right clicking on the rectangle that represents it
and selecting “Attached”.
Now repeat steps 5 - 8 above for this display.
If you are using a Quad-Head Configuration repeat all of the above steps
for the two displays on the second display controller.
127
Display resolution
Tip: After installing DualView and setting the resolutions in a
Quad-Head Configuration you may need to drag the heads into the
proper position in the window on the “Settings” tab, so that the
arrangement in the window on the “Settings” tab matches the
physical arrangement of your configuration.

Calibration
Each display is calibrated in the factory before it is sent to the customer.
After this calibration, black and white luminance are set to the ideal
level.
A stabilization routine, constantly active when the display is on, keeps
these levels constant using the built-in sensor.
Display Controller head
A display controller (graphics board) converts the digital data from the
computer into digital or analog video voltages.
Most of the common display controllers contain just one set of video
and sync outputs. However, some high-end boards, like some of the
BarcoMed boards, contain two sets of video and sync outputs. This is
called a dual head display controller. It is like two complete display
controllers implemented on one single unit.
A dual head board in the computer behaves exactly as if two separate
boards were installed.
DICOM
DICOM stands for Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine. It is
a standard developed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and
the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).
The standard specifies how digital image data can be moved from
system to system.
In addition, Supplement 28 Part 14 specifies a function that relates pixel
values to displayed Luminance levels and is called Grayscale Standard
Display Function.
