Planar VS174SXAD 17.4 Inch LCD Medical Monitor. The architecture of the VS17 display incorporates an active matrix liquid-crystal display (AMLCD) panel that produces a bright, high-contrast image with low radiation emission. This technology greatly reduces the radiation-related health concerns associated with cathode-ray tube (CRT) monitors.The VS17 is a high-resolution color display designed to be versatile and easy to use. The display accepts either analog or digital video (DVI) input and displays most video standards from 640 x 480 (VGA standard) to 1280 x 1024 (SXGA standard).
