Mitsubishi Invites ISE Visitors to Change Their Ideas About Display
At Integrated Systems Europe 2011 (Amsterdam RAI, 1-3 February), Mitsubishi Electric will invite visitors to explore new possibilities and to change the way they think about display technologies in their daily surroundings. Large screen displays of 40" and above are now a common sight in cities, shops and public spaces around the world. Yet despite huge advances in performance and content delivery, the display technologies employed have remained largely unchanged for over a decade, centred mainly around LCD and LED.
Now there is a third choice: OLED. Showing at ISE 2011, Diamond Vision OLED is the world’s only large format, scalable OLED display – a completely new type of screen that is up to three times brighter than LCD, double the contrast and up to 60 per cent slimmer than an equivalent LED display. The Diamond Vision OLED is a fully scalable technology that enables indoor screens of virtually any size or shape to be created, transforming entire areas into display surfaces capable of showing daylight-visible, high quality video content in full colour.
The way that people interact with out-of-home display content is also evolving. New at ISE 2011 is a range of touch-screen accessories designed to transform Mitsubishi Electric’s professional LCD displays into highly durable, reliable touch-screen interfaces ideally suited to retail, education or digital signage use. Mitsubishi AssistTouch consists of a bezel-mounted, hardened glass overlay that fits over the Mitsubishi display to provide a tough and durable touch-screen interface whilst protecting the LCD display underneath. Available in 42", 52" and 65" sizes to match Mitsubishi’s MDT range, Assist Touch uses optical sensing to determine user actions and can be operated equally well by finger, stylus or other pointing device.
Mitsubishi’s Display wall systems now also have touch-screen capability thanks to a unique laser-based optical touch screen system that will also be shown at ISE 2011. Using Mitsubishi Multi-Touch, a DLP cube displaywall can be transformed into a multi-user, multi-touch interactive environment. There is no limit to the number of screens, nor the number of simultaneous users, making this an ideal technology for collaborative working. The system can even work behind glass, enabling applications such as interactive large screen displays in shop windows to be created.
Projection remains perhaps the most accessible display technology in working or educational environments. Mitsubishi will be showcasing its latest high-end projection solutions at ISE 2011, ideal for both business and educational use. The XD8100U (XGA) and widescreen WD8200U (WXGA) dual-lamp projectors feature a completely new design and state-of-the-art performance in large rooms or high-ambient light environments. Delivering 7000 Lumens and 6500 Lumens respectively, the XD8100U and WD8200U feature a unique, patented image processing algorithm that analyses the input signal and extrapolates high-definition data missing from the original image in real time. The result is startlingly clear, bright, pin-sharp images with every detail faithfully reproduced. Edge-blending technology is also built-in, together with a sophisticated colour matching system that enables seamless multi-projector installations.
Other innovations include a unique heat pipe cooling system that greatly reduces power consumption and ambient noise. Along with our living and working environments, the wider issue of protecting our global environment is also a concern for everyone. Mitsubishi Electric has committed to significant reductions in the environmental impact of its activities and products, and will use ISE 2011 as a platform to talk about some of the changes it has made.
In its displaywall cubes, LED-lit versions remove the need for toxic mercury lamps and offer significantly reduced lifetime power consumption. In its LCD panels, sophisticated light sensors and programmable behaviours ensure the most efficient operation. Overall power consumption in the latest MDT series models has been reduced by 40 per cent or more. The use of lighter, recyclable materials has reduced the weight of LCD panels, saving on transport costs as well as improving end-of-life management.
With some significant new technologies on show, together with innovative developments of existing ones, a visit to the Mitsubishi Electric stand (A24 in Hall 2) at Integrated Systems Europe 2011 is essential. Mitsubishi invites all visitors to ISE 2011 to learn more about its belief in Changes for the Better and to glimpse some of the possibilities that these changes could represent.
