Project’s intention

The rise of digital imaging technology has quickly changed the way in which patient data is used and distributed within hospitals. The adequate and repeatable performance of the image display system is a key element of information technology platforms in a modern radiology department. Especially COVID-19 outbreak calls for more accurate imaging diagnosis to discover lung lesions at early stage.

Thus JVC will release the 21.3-inch 2-megapixel monochrome monitor "MS-S200" that can precisely dispaly various medical image such as DR, CT and MRI etc. It is also a cost-effective solution owing to our original technology ISD which can render 6 mega sub-pixels images, and contributes to improve the work efficiency.

Key features

Excellent Diagnostic Visibility

MS-S200 comes with 1800:1 contrast ratio to make it the best solution for diagnostic imaging of DR, CT and MRI etc. The brighter screen dramatically increases the number of perceptual grayscale steps to improve visibility of structures. Diagnostic reading will be much more efficient. One of its unique technologies the built-in sensor ensures that the monitor constantly performs at its best.

Independent Sub-pixel Drive Technology

This unique technology enables MS-S200 to render 6 mega sub-pixel images, exceeding the current standards for primary diagnosis. This will be a cost-effective way of enhancing the ability of 2MP display. (Patent No.8, 259, 034B2)

Auto Text Mode

Brightness is automatically adjusted on patient lists and reporting applications to reduce eye strain.

High Contrast Improved Diagnostic Visibility

A contrast ratio of 1800:1 delivers crisper images and gives radiologists confidence in breast image interpretation to improve work efficiency.

Integrated QA Solution

QA Medivisor Agent providing calibration and QA standard testing through a straightforward user interface is effective to manage daily operation.


* Optional calibration kit CAL-016 is required for standard QA testing.


With the integrated front sensor, the MS-S200 self-calibrates to the DICOM Part 14 Standard on a regular schedule.

Built-in Sensor

Premium Design

A simple and slim design for a modern look.

Space Saving

The new design of MS-S200 reduces 25% of the stand footprint compared to the conventional models.

Low Blue light Panel

MS-S200 comes with a low blue light panel, which reduce strain on the eyes while reading.

Wire Management / DisplayPort Daisy Chains

With the DisplayPort 1.2, the use of daisy chains allows for easier wiring connections.

Uniformity Equalizer

Luminance uniformity correction system produces stable images across the screen.


With the DisplayPort 1.2, the use of daisy chains allows for easier wiring connections.
