Mitsubishi Electric Stands Apart with Industry Partner Synergy and Depth of Display Offerings


IRVINE, Calif., June 13, 2012 -In an increasingly commoditized marketplace, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. sets itself apart in many ways: the wide range of product offerings, overall product excellence and reliability, and synergistic partnerships with industry leaders to bring the best solutions and services to its customers.

Mitsubishi Electric is the only manufacturer that makes a full line of displays, including LED display boards, projectors, LCD flat panel monitors, data walls and televisions designed for a wide range of industries and applications.

At this year's InfoComm Expo, the audio/visual display industry's biggest show, Mitsubishi Electric will share the spotlight with Cybertouch, DisplayNote, IAdea, Luidia, Qwizdom®, ThinkLogical™, and Anacore in Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

CyberTouch brings its touch-screen expertise to bear on three displays in the booth, including the Photon, a multi-touch frame that converts any Mitsubishi Electric video wall to an interactive multi-user experience. CyberTouch's Rio line of multi-touch monitors recognizes up to 32 simultaneous touch inputs and is a turn-key solution for Mitsubishi Electric dealers who want to integrate this technology. CyberTouch offers gesturing, squeezing and pinching functionalities to make interactive resources easier for untrained or casual multiple users.

DisplayNote's software allows users to connect to Mitsubishi Electric projectors or monitors and control display content using a tablet or smart phone. Users can view, annotate, save and collaborate with other users using DisplayNote.

IAdea will be exhibiting its media players with digital signage content shown via a user-friendly interface; users can easily connect the media players to a network and effectively (and intuitively) display digital signage. Using the latest HTML5 dynamic content open standard, IAdea media players can display RSS feeds, live web and even news and weather feeds. These media players are also widely supported by many major digital signage software brands.

Luidia returns to the Mitsubishi Electric booth to showcase its interactive eBeam Edge™ platform that creates, saves and shares meeting notes, dynamic lessons, diagrams and more. Weighing less than four ounces, the eBeam Edge works with a Mitsubishi Electric projector to transform walls, traditional whiteboards and flat surfaces into interactive workspaces. This eliminates the need to replace these surfaces with new and costly dedicated interactive ones. They can also work with large-screen, flat panel monitors or display walls.

Quizdom's WizTeach™ is annotation software that works in single and dual pen mode with Mitsubishi Electric's projectors for greater collaboration and interactivity. It has more than 70 subject-specific tools for drawing, math, literacy, voting, science and geography. WizTeach annotations save directly into Word, Power Point and Excel, and work with a browser and almost any software application. These tools are designed to improve teaching and learning outcomes.

Thinklogical is one of the world's foremost developers and manufacturers of high-performance fiber optic video, audio, KVM (keyboard, visual display and mouse) and peripheral extension and routing solutions. The company will show its Velocity Extender product - the VelSys3 Fiber Optic Input Card - built specifically for Mitsubishi Electric video walls. The VelSys3 plugs directly into any Mitsubishi Electric Seventy Series DLP® cube's optic engine or Seventy Series: Flat monitors as an optional input board for a quick fiber optic connection.

Adding to the excitement in the booth is content provided by Anacore, a leading custom software development company specializing in collaboration and digital signage systems. Visitors will experience powerful and dynamic interactive tools that streamline collaborative discussions, reminiscent of the high-tech wonders found only in futuristic movies.

Mitsubishi Electric works with companies that have a solid reputation in their respective areas of expertise, be it touch screens, interactivity, or thin client communications. Mitsubishi Electric also provides a support network to resolve issues that may arise with one call, to one company.

"Unlike other manufacturers, if you have a problem with a Mitsubishi Electric product, you call us first," said James Chan, vice president of marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. "Even if the issue lies with one of our software or third-party providers, we'll coordinate the service call so our customers have one point of contact.

"Our core competence is our expertise in display technology that goes back decades," added Chan. "From huge Diamond Vision™ displays in stadiums and on Time Square to our big-screen TVs, Mitsubishi Electric makes display devices that are specifically designed to improve the viewer's visual experience."
