June 01, 2011

Double Black Imaging will be showcasing their new X-Series LCD line along with their X-CAL web calibration suite at SIIM 2011 in Washington DC.  They will also be highlighting their surgical and clinical LCD line and DICOMetrix PACS dashboard software.

DBI’s X-CAL Calibration Suite:

X-Cal Web allows for complete front DICOM calibration and QA of DBI LCDs as well as the ability to track and manage calibrations for non-DBI LCDs. DICOM Calibration and Conformance MUST be done from the front of the LCD.  This either requires a photometer for manual calibrations or built in Front sensors.
X-Cal consists of two components, a local agent package and a network administrative package that is now easily accessible via the web.

Paired together with DBI displays, this software and hardware combination allows:
•    Remote calibration of each display to the DICOM gray scale display function (GSDF)
•    Easy monitoring of each display from a remote central location
•    Automatic Email notifications sent when service is required

PACS Performance Monitoring software that measures DICOM Images Per Second (IPS) or Images Per Minute (IPM) as well as general network traffic.

There are 3 levels that comprise the DICOMetrix Software Suite:
•    DICOMetrix Client monitors the workstation level (Rad station, CD Burner, Rimage, Film scanners, etc..) and gives real-time speed of the images coming into that station.
•    DICOMetrix Server resides on the DICOM Server and monitors IPs sending into this server, as well as outgoing traffic.
•    DICOMetrix Enterprise Server monitors all clients and servers in one easy to access location. After base-lining the system, it also allows alerts to be set and notifications sent if speed levels drop below the set tolerance.
