Variety of ports

Best connectivity

Cutting-edge connectivity with USB-C

Video playback, fast data transfer including network signal as well as power supply for connected devices, all this and more can be realised with a single USB-C cable. The MX317W becomes the central docking station to which you can quickly and conveniently connect your notebook. Particularly practical if you use a notebook for the teleradiology or telepathology home office.

The 94 W power supply via USB-C reliably charges small computers or notebooks. This creates more space on the desk, because an additional computer power supply unit becomes superfluous.


Daisy chain method

Efficient multi-display solution

The monitor’s USB-C ports enable multiple monitors to be connected to the computer via a single cable (using the daisy chain method). This allows for a hassle-free configuration of up to two screens and reduces cable clutter. Being able to view and edit several applications simultaneously also improves comfort and increases efficiency when working.

Did you know, computers and monitors with a DisplayPort connection can also be connected to USB-C? The right cable for this from our optional accessories is called CP200.

USB-C daisy chain compatibility of the MX317W.


Stable network connection

LAN port

The monitor has a dedicated LAN port to ensure a stable wired network connection. Laptops and PCs require only one USB cable to be connected to the MX317W to gain network access via the monitor. This is particularly advantageous for laptops that do not have a LAN connection and allows stable data transfer, which is required for video conferences, for example. As a network device the monitor has its own MAC address. This transparency grants authenticated PCs network access through the monitor.


One monitor, many ports

It couldn't be easier: Most end devices, such as PC, laptop, mouse or keyboard, can be connected directly to the monitor, thanks to its wide range of signal interfaces and ports. This makes your daily work easier and ensures a tidy desk.

Image quality

Precise, high-contrast, bright and crisp screen

Excellent image quality for the finest details

Thanks to the high 8 Megapixels (colour) resolution, a strong contrast ratio of 1800:1 and stable brightness of up to 550 cd/m2, the monitor offers excellent image quality. Even the differences between the finest details are shown – regardless of your viewing angle. This is a great advantage if multiple physicians are looking at the screen.


Observe monochrome and color images on a single monitor

The hybrid gamma PXL functionality automatically differentiates between monochrome and colour images, pixel by pixel. This creates a hybrid display on which each pixel is displayed with the ideal tone value. In this way, a high level of precision and reliability is achieved.

The MX317W displays sophisticated monochrome images just as reliably as color images from various modalities. In practice, this means a significant increase in efficiency, as images from different imaging procedures can be displayed on just one monitor.


Preset mode for digital pathology

The MX317W has an image display mode for pathological images. This offers customised settings for displaying microscopic cell and tissue structures on the monitor in high detail. When using EIZO monitors for pathology, it is recommended to evaluate the entire system including the scanner.


Blur reduction

LCD panels with a high brightness level tend to have more blurry image rendering thanks to over-framing than would be possible in comparison with an acquired exposure. Therefore, EIZO offers blur reduction anchored in monitor hardware. It retrieves details lost in the contours on the screen, meaning that the image is rendered as clearly as possible.

Consistent image quality thanks to integrated luminance sensor

The precise calibration of white point and tone value characteristic curve is provided by an integrated luminance sensor. This measures the brightness and grayscales and calibrates the monitor autonomously according to the DICOM® standard. The sensor works automatically, without restricting the field of vision of the monitor. You can save the costs, time, and effort of maintenance and rely on a consistently balanced image quality.


Uniform brightness and high color purity

The monitor shines thanks to its high color purity and uniform illumination. This is down to the Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE), which corrects imbalances automatically, pixel by pixel. Gray and color tones of radiological and other medical images are correctly rendered over the entire display. This is essential for precise image reproduction.

Constant brightness during operation

A sensor for the backlight permanently determines the luminance of the monitor. The benefit: The defined and calibrated values are rendered exactly just seconds after the monitor is turned on and remain constant during the entire period of use. The sensor is invisibly integrated in the monitor.


Back of the monitor

One billion color tones thanks to 13 bit LUT

The color rendering is controlled via a 13-bit Look-Up-Table (LUT). With DisplayPort and USB-C connections, up to 10 bits are available for the display. This results in a resolution with a maximum of 1 billion color tones. The rendering characteristic and fine structures required for diagnostics can therefore be precisely identified.

Software and ease of use

Features for greater comfort

Consistently secure image quality

The optional EIZO RadiCS software to secure image quality enables extensive maintenance and testing of monitors and includes calibration, acceptance and constancy testing, and the archiving of all areas. If you are working on multiple stations, the use of the RadiNET Pro is recommended. This can be used to centrally control the calibration of all monitors, including data history. This saves you a significant amount of time and ensures consistently high image quality across the entire setup. The basic version RadiCS LE - without acceptance and constancy testing - is already included with the RadiForce monitors.



The Work-and-Flow technology

With the increasing digitisation of modalities, radiologists are confronted with a growing amount of information on their screens. EIZO's unique work-and-flow technology, with new features designed to meet the needs of radiologists, effectively counters the complexity of data. The RadiForce MX317W and RadiCS-LE software solution enable you to benefit from the Work-and-Flow functions.

More information about the Work-and-Flow functions

Point-and-Focus: all eyes on the analysis

The Point-and-Focus function allows you to select and focus on relevant image areas quickly using your mouse or keyboard. By adjusting the brightness and greyscale, the interesting parts of an image are highlighted by dimming the surrounding areas.


Hide-and-Seek: fast retrieval of information

Hide-and-Seek adds the benefit of making it possible to access reports, patient files and other information on the display quickly and efficiently without needing an additional monitor. When you move your cursor towards or away from the edge of the screen, a PinP window hides and displays information.


Switch-and-Go: just one keyboard and mouse for two systems

Switch-and-Go makes it possible to work using just one keyboard and mouse at diagnostic imaging stations that make use of two computers. You can switch between the two systems simply by moving your cursor from one screen to the other. This ensures greater work efficiency and allows you to maintain a clear overview of your workstation.


Improved comfort

Efficiency in image reproduction

Select the optimal display mode for different modalities

The Manual Mode Switch function provides different modes for image reproduction of images from different modalities such as CR, CT, endoscopy and for pathology. With the supplied RadiCS LE software, the modes can be preset so that the screen automatically switches to the optimal image viewing condition.


1. CR mode; 2. CT mode; 3. Pathology mode; 4. Endoscopy mode

Elegant design

A housing with rounded corners and elegant curves on the back presents a soft aesthetic and creates a pleasant impression for patients and users.


Ergonomic stand

Ergonomic and stable: the adjustable stand focuses on ergonomics. You can swivel and tilt the monitor stand until you find the most comfortable setting for your back, neck and sitting posture. It features continuous height adjustment and can be lowered almost to the base plate of the stand, enabling you to position the top image line ergonomically right below your eye level.

RadiLight: Eye-friendly comfort light

EIZO offers a brand-new, easy-to-operate comfort light for radiologists who work in dark diagnosis rooms. The soft illuminance in the background of the screen reduces the strain on the eyes that frequently occurs due to constant light-dark changes between bright screens and objects in a dark environment.



Environmentally and socially conscious production

Environmentally friendly use of materials

The MX317W consists of more than 70 % recycled plastic. This reduces the amount of plastic waste entering the environment, conserves resources and promotes the reuse of materials to preserve natural ecosystems.


Environmentally friendly packaging

For the packaging of the MX317W, EIZO uses a padding made of moulded pulp cellulose. The material is made from recycled cardboard and paper and has a much lower environmental impact when disposed of than traditional polystyrene or plastic. All cables are stored in a cardboard compartment instead of being individually packed in plastic bags.


Left: conventional packaging / Right: environmentally friendly materials

Socially responsible production

The MX317W is produced in a socially responsible way. It is free of child labour and forced labour. Suppliers along the supply chain have been carefully selected and they have also committed themselves to produce in a socially responsible way. This applies in particular to conflict minerals. We present a detailed report about our social responsibility annually and voluntarily.


Environmentally and climate friendly

Each MX317W is manufactured in our own factory, which implements an environmental and energy management system in accordance with ISO 14001 und ISO 50001. This includes measures to reduce waste, wastewater and emissions, resource and energy consumption, as well as to encourage environmentally conscious behavior among employees. We publicly report on these measures on an annual basis. 


Sustainable and durable

The MX317W is designed to have a long service life and normally outlasts the warranty period by some distance. Replacement parts are available many years after production has ceased. The entire lifecycle takes into account the impact on the environment as the longevity of the product and the fact it can be repaired saves resources and protects the environment. When designing the MX317W, we took a minimalistic approach to our resources by using high-quality components and materials, as well as a careful production process.



Highest investment security

Five-year warranty

EIZO grants a five-year warranty. This is possible thanks to the highly developed production process based on a simple principle of success: sophisticated and innovative technology, made from high-end materials.

Monitor Test

Test the properties and parametres of your monitor quickly and easily with software developed in-house at EIZO.


The EIZO software is capable of complete quality management – from calibration through asset management to acceptance and constancy testing.


RadiCS LE quality control software calibrates EIZO RadiForce monitors and manages the calibration data.

RadiNET Pro

EIZO software for network-supported quality management in larger establishments – with remote function for monitors.


EIZO has developed the RadiCS software specifically for quality assurance for image display devices in the RadiForce range. It offers extensive tests and automatic alignment to guarantee constant and consistent image reproduction on all RadiForce LCD monitors, but also supports screens from other manufacturers. The software automatically executes test images and helps to perform measurements and assessments in accordance with the guidelines in a cost-effective and time-effective manner. For example, measurement results are automatically transferred to the documentation and archived and can be centrally managed using the optional RadiNET Pro software. A calendar with a reminder function ensures timely checks are performed. A suitable measurement device is required to measure the luminance, including veiling luminance. Measured values from various luminance meters are automatically read by RadiCS.

Software RadiCS

According to the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the quality assurance guidelines are according to the X-ray ordinance (QS-RL): "Quality assurance measures for X-ray devices to examine or treat humans".

DIN V 6868-157. This DIN governs the acceptance test and constancy test for image display systems in radiography in order to ensure the necessary image quality.

In accordance with DIN 6868-157, different minimum requirements are placed on image display devices depending on the body region / method. The EIZO RadiCS quality assurance software is divided into classes I to VIII. The following table shows a classification of the classes and minimum requirements in this regard. 

Note: An acceptance test is necessary for each image display system for an evaluation in accordance with DIN 6868-157.

To keep your monitor looking like new at all times and to prolong the service life of your device, we recommend cleaning it regularly. Clean the casing and LCD surface as described below:

IMPORTANT: Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol), scouring agents or other strong solvents as these may damage the casing and the LCD display.

Remove marks by wiping the casing with a soft cloth, which you have previously moistened with a mild cleaning agent. Never spray wax or cleaning agents directly on to the casing. (The manual contains exact details.)

LCD display
Where necessary, the monitor surface may be cleaned using a soft cloth (for example a cotton cloth or glasses cloth). Stubborn marks can generally be removed by wetting the cloth with a bit of water to increase the cleaning strength.

Homogeneous luminance distribution and good color purity are key to achieving very accurate image rendering. The Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) circuit takes care of this. It automatically corrects non-uniformities in terms of luminance and chrominance for all tone values across the entire image area – pixel by pixel.

The warranty for EIZO RadiForce monitors is 5 years for most models including an on-site replacement service. EIZO recommends an image brightness that is considerably higher than the minimum requirements in accordance with QS RL for monitors used for medical diagnostics. This recommended brightness is guaranteed by EIZO.
The corresponding product data sheets show which guarantee applies to which RadiForce model.

Both the installation wizard in RadiCS 5 and the corresponding functionality in RadiNET Pro enable an upgrade including data migration.

An important prerequisite for this is that the installed RadiCS 4 Version must be Version 4.6.1 or higher. For that reason, you should carry out an update beforehand for older RadiCS 4 installations.

Monitors and computers use a handshake to separately negotiate the power supply. The power supply is therefore protected against overloads and can be connected by the user without having to do anything but plug in the cable. We recommend using the USB-C cable supplied with the monitor since it supports 5A charging currents.

EIZO monitors support DisplayPort Alternate Mode with their USB-C interface. This means they can correctly display image signals from Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports via USB-C connection. The USB-C signal cable supplied by EIZO with the monitor has the optimal suitability.

Alternatively, monitors with a DisplayPort socket can be connected using a suitable cable. The CP200 signal cable (USB-C (TB3/TB4) to DisplayPort) provided by EIZO is the most suitable.

A connection from Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports to the HDMI interface of the monitor can work with suitable active adapters/cables. However, we recommend using the USB-C or DisplayPort interface of the monitor.
