Mitsubishi Electric’s LED upgrade29 January 2014
Mitsubishi Electric will unveil three new LED-illuminated DLP cube engines for the first time in Europe at ISE 2014. The latest additions to its Seventy Series control room displays range are designed to enable existing customers to upgrade legacy mercury lamp-based Display Wall systems to LED technology.
The VS-XE73RU replaces XGA lamp-based engines for Mitsubishi’s XL20/XL21 and XL50 series cubes. The VS-PE73RU replaces XGA lamp-based engines with SXGA+ LED-based engines and is designed for the XL/20/XL21 and XL50 series. This also upgrades systems to higher resolution. Finally, the VS-PE78RU can replace SXGA+ lamp based engines with SXGA+ LED based engines for the PH40 and PH50 series.
The new products are a direct, slot-in replacement for the older technology.
Mitsubishi Electric’s LED cubes employ a unique air-cooled lighting element, which, requires no moving parts and no maintenance for its 80,000 hour lifespan. In addition, specially designed fan packs rated for 100,000 hours of continuous use mean that a Mitsubishi Electric LED cube wall can be expected to deliver over 9 years of 24/7 operation without further maintenance or replacement parts.
The latest generation of Mitsubishi Electric LED cubes offer screen brightnesses up to 1420cd/m? and contrast ratios up to 1600:1, suiting the towards control room applications. The colour performance of LED is a considerable improvement on conventional mercury illumination. Along with a generally improved image, more accurate colour performance makes it easier for operators to distinguish between the different coloured graphics frequently employed in control room displays, reducing operator fatigue and the likelihood of errors. Mitsubishi Electric’s patented Colour Space Control and innovative digital graduation feature ensure superb, edge-to-edge colour and brightness uniformity across the entire screen.
