1. INTRODUCTION
1.1 Overview
Resolution and bandwidths
The BARCO MGD 221 is a high resolution, greyscale portrait display.
Its outstanding visual performance, combining a 2 MegaPixel
resolution with a high brightness, makes it ideal for medical imaging
and many other medical and scientific applications.
The MGD 221 is compatible with any AC power system worldwide
and automatically synchronizes to a wide range of sync frequencies.
Its high-speed video amplifier supports pixel clocks up to 250 MHz.
The memory system
The internal memory system can contain the adjustments for 8
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 221 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
adjust and check BARCO’s medical displays.
Introduction
9
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 221 is 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.
1.2 Versions and options
The MGD 221 comes in 2 different versions: With an anti-reflective
panel in front of the picture tube, and without panel (No Panel
version).
In both cases, the phosphor is a B4-L8 type.
The type of CRT phosphor and the presence of the coating are
indicated on the label at the rear of the display.
The video input is terminated to 75 Ohm.
Important: It is absolutely necessary that the impedances of imaging
board and display are the same. If not, the image quality will be
inferior.
The MGD 221 can be delivered with the following options: Southern
Hemisphere Compensation and Ambient Light Compensation (ALC).
The MediCal software and the X-Rite DTP92 sensor are not delivered
with the display.
MediCal can be ordered separately.
1.3 About the manuals
This guide is meant for people who want to install and use the MGD
221 display, as well as people who need to install and adjust the
display. The chapter "Advanced Adjustments" is meant for trained
engineers only, because it describes actions and procedures that
require a technical skill to be performed properly.
The use of the software MediCal is described in the MediCal User’s
Manual.

the ideal protection during transport.
•
Do not lift the display all by yourself to avoid injury.
•
Avoid reflections in the picture tube to reduce eye strain.
•
Place the display on a strong and stable table or desk if used as
desktop display.
•
Keep the display away from heat sources and provide enough
ventilation in case it is built in a rack or console.
•
Keep the display away from strong sources of magnetic fields.
•
Make sure the display and computer are both switched off before
connecting the signals.
2.2 The package contents
•
The MGD 221 display
•
The accessory box (in which you found this manual)
Notes:
•
The MGD 221 can be part of a complete MeDis® system,
consisting of the display itself, an imaging board and software. In
that case, the package contains a lot more items. The contents of
the package is then described in the manual of the complete
system.

2.4 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 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}.
Notes:
•
The video inputs cannot be connected in loop-through (daisychain).
•
The required video amplitude: 700 mV ± 3 dB.
•
The required sync. amplitude: 500 mV.
Installation
13
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.

At the front, the sensor plug
is located under the bezel.
Installation
14
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%.
2.5 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.
Installation
15
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.
Installation

3. 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).
3.1 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
{2} 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
{2} 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 blinking. In the last DPMS mode,
the LED will be on continuously.
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.
For more details, please read Appendix A, "Background information".

ALC (optional)
Ambient Light Compensation (ALC) is an optional system that
automatically adapts the display contrast and brightness level to the
ambient light in the room. The system has to be adjusted by setting
the contrast and brightness in the darkest ambient light conditions the
user works, and then repeating this in the brightest conditions.
To adjust the ALC system, proceed as follows:
1.
Dim the light in the room to create the darkest ambient light
condition the user normally works in.
2.
Enter the Minimum illuminance menu.
3.
Select Measure ambient light. The display now stores the
ambient light level that corresponds to the darkest condition.
4.
Select Contrast and set the display contrast to the desired level.
5.
Select Brightness and set the display brightness to the desired
level.
6.
Exit the Minimum illuminance menu.
7.
Increase the light in the room to create the brightest ambient light
condition the user normally works in.
8.
Enter the Maximum illuminance menu.
9.
Select Measure ambient light. The display now stores the
ambient light level that corresponds to the brightest condition.
10. Select Contrast and set the display contrast to the desired level.
11. Select Brightness and set the display brightness to the desired
level.
12. Exit the Maximum illuminance menu.

Luminance uniformity
This menu allows you to calibrate the display, including the
Luminance Uniformity circuit.
Proceed as follows:
1 Connect the X-Rite DTP92 sensor and apply the black shield (see
chapter "Installation").
2 Follow the instructions on the screen.
Factory reset
This function allows you to undo all adjustments you have made since
the display left the factory.
Select Go ahead to restore the factory settings.
Select Exit to return to the previous menu without erasing the
adjustments.
c) How to save changes
Proceed as follows:
1 After having made the adjustments, select Exit in each appearing
menu until the Save Changes? message appears.
2 Select Yes to save the changes.
Select No to exit the OSD menus without saving the changes.
What happens upon saving?
•
When the current scanning mode was already stored in the display
memory, the scanning mode is updated with the new adjustment
values.
•
When the scanning mode was not yet stored in the memory, the
display will create a new scanning mode in the memory.
However, when the memory was full, the monitor will display a list
of scanning modes in the memory and ask if you wish to overwrite
one of them. If you want to store the adjustments you have made,
you will have to overwrite one of the scanning modes in memory.

5. MAINTENANCE
Picture tube
The glass panel of the picture tube is handled with a special coating.
Take care not to damage or scratch the coating.
Clean the picture tube with a soft woolen or cotton cloth.
The cloth should be moist, not wet!
Use a watery solution or a mild commercial glass cleaning solution.
Apply (e.g., spray) the solution on the cloth, not on the picture tube.
Cabinet
Clean the cabinet using a recognized cleaning product for medical
equipment. The cloth you use must be moist, not wet!
The cabinet has been tested for resistance to the following products:
Cidex, Betadine, Alcohol (Isopropyl and Ethyl), Ammonia-based
cleaners (Windex) and Aquasonic Gel.

Troubleshooting

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 %.
Background information
34
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 %.
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 6 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.
