FOM (Figure Of Merit) 1200 1400    
Signal-To-Noise Ratio 20 22    
Limiting resolution (at center) 60 64   lp/mm
High Light Level Resolution (200lx) 50     lp/mm
Phosphor P43 (also available in P45**)

** P45 is Onyx (white phosphor)


Its broad spectral sensitivity range results in a perfect picture. New production technology of the XD-4™ resulted in improved performance of the Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) and Resolution. Add to these features like the small halo and the extended lifetime and you will be convinced of its unique performance.

The XD-4™ is also available with an Auto-Gating power supply unit.
