Mitsubishi Electric Upgrades LED Engine for Seventy Series Display Cubes

The new LED engine displays images almost twice as bright as previous models while power consumption and thermal dissipation are decreased by 22 percent. Another innovation is an emergency function: if one of the three LED colors (red, green, blue) fails, the other two compensate to create an image until the LED can be replaced.

Mitsubishi Electric Upgrades LED Engine for Seventy Series Display Cubes


IRVINE, Calif., June 12, 2012 - Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. announces a new high-brightness LED engine for its modular Seventy Series display cubes. The engine may be seen at InfoComm Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

The new LED engine displays images almost twice as bright as previous models while power consumption and thermal dissipation are decreased by 22 percent. Another innovation is an emergency function: if one of the three LED colors (red, green, blue) fails, the other two compensate to create an image until the LED can be replaced. There's no image loss or downtime, which is important for mission-critical applications.

"Mitsubishi Electric is known for its excellence in display technology, and this new LED engine proves it by delivering greater brightness while using less energy," said Matt Krstulja, director of sales, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. "I'm pleased to announce that we are shipping and ready for new orders."

The new engine boasts a direct fiber-optic option, eliminating the need for external fiber receivers, DVI cabling and associated power supplies. This provides simpler, cleaner installations and fewer points of failure.

Because of the Seventy Series' modular design, this second-generation LED engine fits Mitsubishi Electric's 4:3 aspect ratio display cubes in 50-, 60-, 67- and 80-inch formats, so users can upgrade easily.

When display cubes are in a tiled configuration, it is important to balance and blend colors to achieve consistency across the wall. Mitsubishi Electric cubes feature an Automatic Color Space Control that blends and adjusts colors automatically while its Digital Gradation Circuit distributes brightness uniformly across the screen. These two technologies ensure brilliant, rich image reproduction evenly from edge to edge across multi-screen configurations.

Each Seventy Series display cube has three built-in sensors (red, blue, green) and a dynamic color control and brightness balancing system that continually monitor the output of each cube, share the data with adjacent units and automatically adjust overall performance. This level of automation maintains image uniformity of multi-screen configurations, with no external action required.

Seventy Series cubes have an internal data processing function that displays up to four windows per cube, so displays can be installed without an external image processor. Multiple windows can be moved freely and, when used in combination with Mitsubishi Electric's D-Wall Software, the entire imaging system can be controlled from a user-friendly graphical interface.

Thanks to Mitsubishi Electric display cube's modular design, after replacements or upgrades are installed, the cubes automatically adjust color and brightness across the wall, reducing costly downtime. The replaced units can be listed on Mitsubishi's Owners' Circle for resale. Sellers can go to the Mitsubishi Electric Mega View website, http://www.Mitsubishi-MegaView.com, and look for Owners' Circle, listed under the "Resources" tab.

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America's new LED engine is available through authorized systems integrators and comes with a two-year limited warranty on parts and labor. Other terms and conditions apply.

With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
