European launch for Mitsubishi VS-60HS1211 February 2015
The slim new VS-60HS12 cube has received its European launch at ISE. Based on the same LED light source technology as Mitsubishi Electric’s well-established Seventy Series DLP cubes, the new cube is claimed to offer “significant economies in both its space requirement and cost of ownership, and is designed to provide a real alternative to LCD in compact control rooms”.
Previously, the only practical option for large format control room display in restricted spaces, such as crisis suites and breakout rooms, has been tiled LCD. However, LCD is not always ideal for 24/7 operation and an intrusive bezel can prove distracting to operators, but the VS-60HS12 offers both a near-seamless high-resolution display and true, zero-maintenance 24 hour operation in a compact footprint.
The 60in DLP rear projection cubes measure 520mm deep, nearly half that of Mitsubishi’s Seventy Series cubes. Being solely front access means it can be installed flush to the wall, with no rear access required. The LED projection engine employs the same, patented, air-cooled light source technology as the high-specification Seventy Series, and requires no maintenance over its entire lifespan of approximately 50,000 hours. Based on a 0.65in Digital Mirror Device, the display delivers up to 665cd/sqm at 1080p resolution, enhanced by Mitsubishi’s patented Colour Space Control and Digital Graduation circuitry. The displays are also completely self balancing, ensuring correct colour balance across the wall automatically.
Also launched at ISE is a new range of DLP rear projection cubes. The new OPS-equipped 120 Series displays are designed for budget-conscious control room applications requiring a high-performance, bezel-less display.
