ISE 2013: European debut for Mitsubishi’s 70in LCD31 January 2013
Mitsubishi Electric’s MDT701S will make its European debut at ISE 2013. The flagship 70in edge-lit LED display is the largest professional LCD monitor ever offered by Mitsubishi, equally suited to both public display or corporate settings. The large, Full HD screen and narrow bezel design of the MDT701S creates an impressive visual presence and is said to deliver excellent performance and low cost of ownership thanks to its use of LED backlighting. LED illumination means reduced power consumption and a slimmer profile, while delivering a 5000:1 contrast ratio and increased colour gamut. Versatility is a key feature of the MDT701S, ensuring quick and easy deployment in any application. An Open Pluggable Standard (OPS) slot allows it to be used with a large number of vendor add-ins, such as single-board PCs, 3G and SDI cards, which make it well-suited to digital signage networks. The MDT701S also features a built-in plug ‘n’ play USB hub, enabling it to be used with peripheral devices such as cameras. Up to five USB hubs can be cascaded to a maximum of 16 USB inputs. MDT701S also supports LAN connections and is compatible with AMX Device Discovery and Crestron Roomview enabling it to be monitored, managed and controlled across the network or from web-enabled iPhone, iPad or Android devices via Crestron’s Fusion RV software. In common with other LCD monitors in the Mitsubishi Electric MDT range, the MDT701S is equipped with dual light sensors, which allows a more accurate auto-brightness adjustment and optimised power consumption. Power scheduling features also help to minimise energy usage, and the monitor can be operated in both landscape and portrait formats. The internal speakers throw downwards rather than to the rear, meaning less unwanted vibration. Mitsubishi’s proprietary Super Resolution algorithm enhances detail in source material to achieve the maximum benefit of its Full HD resolution display. The Mitsubishi Electric stand at ISE 2013 will feature its full range of LCD displays, plus its latest projection, rear projection, digital signage and control room solutions.
