InfoComm MEA 2014: Mitsubishi Electric partners with Bilfinger Mauell on videowalls10 October 2014
Mitsubishi Electric and videowall control specialist Bilfinger Mauell have announced a formal partnership in advance of InfoComm MEA 2014. Both companies will have a significant presence at the event, showcasing the benefits of their combined expertise in high-end command and control applications.
The two companies have already collaborated successfully on numerous projects. Closer co-operation is seen by both companies as a way forward to develop even more advanced display solutions in the future. Bilfinger Mauell is a Microsoft Gold Partner, giving the firm’s engineering department access to an extensive software library, which enables it to develop and adapt technology very rapidly. Combining this with Mitsubishi’s reputation for performance and reliability allows both companies to develop powerful end-to-end solutions very efficiently.
At InfoComm MEA, Mitsubishi Electric will be featuring a typical control room application on its stand, based on a 72in DLP cube display wall employing its latest 78 Series LED projection engines, and Bilfinger Mauell’s X Omnium display controller. The combined system has already proved extremely successful in the field thanks to its extreme robustness and exceptional versatility.
X Omnium is an extremely powerful visualisation system providing a high level of security and reliability in applications such as control rooms, network control centers and data centres. The IP-based X Omnium is able to manage any combination of video, camera feeds, graphics and processes with ease. Its innovative decentralised structure and ‘distributed intelligence’ architecture means there is no possibility of a common mode failure disabling the display. Each individual display within the X Omnium system exists as an independent entity, capable of acting either as a subordinate or master controller. Should a system’s master controller fail, its role can be assumed automatically by any other individual display unit, ensuring complete continuity of operation.
Mitsubishi Electric’s Seventy Series DLP displays enjoy a similarly high reputation for reliability in critical control room applications, with over 61,000 units now installed worldwide. Its latest 78 Series DLP projection engine is based on a unique air-cooled LED light source rated for up to 100,000 hours’ continuous use with no maintenance required. The latest version of Mitsubishi’s seventh-generation DLP projector delivers improved brightness and colour performance. The Seventy Series includes a wide variety of cabinet sizes, screen types and front/rear access models for complete versatility.
