Barco looks to apply medical grade displays to dental industry
Barco is extending its reach into the dental practice market through a partnership with Benco Dental, a privately-owned Pittston, PA, dental distributor in the US.
Opening access to more than 30,000 Benco customers in all 50 states, the agreement represents the first distributor deal for Barco in the US dental office market. The primary goal is to combine Barco's MDRC Series display into Benco's Platinum imaging technology package. The MDRC displays are also sold in conjunction with Benco's X-ray equipment or as a stand-alone purchase.
Barco's MDRC clinical review displays offer DICOM-compliant viewing of clinical data and images, and claim higher contrast, more accurate colours and a wider viewing angle than conventional monitors. Meeting all medical and patient safety standards, MDRC displays are continuously calibrated with Barco's MediCal QAWeb to ensure 24/7 DICOM accuracy.
