Hi there. I have 2 servers here with hardware in them I have never even seen before! I have researched this... but no matter where I got I can’t seem to find out the flat easy answer to what these things are! I just want lame mans terms... this is what it is this is what it does... It is Kodak Pacs Link Medical Image Manager 200 a Kodak Pacs Link 9410 Acquisition System and a little monitor looking thing that says it’s a Kodak Digital Science Medical Image Manager Keypad. I am supposed to take off the Kodak stuff and make them just regular servers, but I am wayyyyy in over my head here! Any help?

    I would start by reimaging the machines... Most of the ones I've seen (100%) run Windows 2000. Earlier ones ran NT.

    Some of the machines used a metallic enclosure.

    These machines are print servers.

    By the most simple definition, the PACS Link machine recieves medical images (X-Rays for example) and formats them for the DryView (medical film printer.) Dry Camera.


    The keypad just allows you to manage the queue : delete print jobs, reprioritize them, verify maintenance, etc.

    Let me know if I didn't explain this right. I was trying to do it without using the words:  DICOM, BFB, N-Create, SCP/SCU, et al.

    Wow! Well thank you! I have no clue what to do with this stuff! I rebuild computers and resell them, but I wouldn’t even know what to sell them for! Not to mention to who! I also have Barco monitors which are 20 inches and from the same place. I thought these would sell easily; however, turns out they are black and white for X-rays! They sell for 8000 brand new and these are only a year old! I guess my customers didn’t like them for some reason. Yeesh! Well, if anyone knows anyone in the medical field, or someone with a great fondness for black and white, let me know! LOL

    The easiest thing to do would be to sell the BARCOs on eBay. Also, you could list these items on Aunt Minnie's forum. (Registration required.) <-- Forum

    Example, similiar item, and what it sold for:

    The Barco flat panels fetch a hefty price, while the CRTs... not as hefty, but still good. Demand is lower, since hospitals and clinics (and some engineering) only use this equipment.

    Where possible, include the video controller board, as they are oft proprietary. (sp.)

    I would attempt to sell them as-is, if on eBay at a high reserve, just to see the interest.

    If necessary, reimage and sell as a workstation.
