Richardson Electronics, Ltd. provides engineered solutions, power grid and microwave tubes and related consumables; power conversion and RF and microwave components, flat panel detector solutions and replacement parts for diagnostic imaging equipment; and customized display solutions. Double Black Imaging is a provider of PACS displays for the diagnostic and clinical display market.
The sale of Richardson Electronics’ PACS display business includes the company’s Image Systems brand of 2MP, 3MP, 5MP, and 6MP color and grayscale displays. The sale also includes the Image Systems proprietary calibration software, which is designed to simplify the conformance and calibration of all Image Systems diagnostic and clinical use displays, ensuring DICOM compliance and proper calibration throughout their lifecycle.
“Double Black Imaging shares many of the same values as Richardson Electronics including our objective to help lower healthcare costs. We believe the combination of these two PACS display businesses creates a stronger competitive environment and will be good for our diagnostic display customers,” said Edward J. Richardson, chairman and CEO of Richardson Electronics, Ltd. “At the same time, this sale allows Richardson Healthcare to focus on its key initiative to expand our line of CT and MRI tubes and high value replacement parts for the diagnostic imaging market.”
