Latest Mitsubishi Electric large screen LCDs merge performance with style.

2010-01-11

With digital signage in commercial or public applications becoming an increasingly popular tool for businesses to showcase their products and services, the desire for bigger and better display equipment has also grown. In keeping with this trend, Mitsubishi Electric has today announced the release of the MDT421S 42” and MDT521S 52” commercial grade LCD displays. The new displays incorporate the latest technology for fantastic image reproduction and superior operability, while the sleek, aluminium design gives a stylish and professional look.

Advanced connectivity is one of the key features in the new range. The MDT521S display comes standard with an innovative CAT-5 transmitter/receiver pair, which allows both video and control signal data to be transmitted over the same network cable. The CAT-5 connectivity supports Full HD signals over a tested 150 metres. Up to five displays can be daisy-chained over a distance of 200 metres. The CAT-5 connection is also available as an option for the MDT421S.

Using the standard VGA connection, up to 25 displays can be combined to create a single large video wall, with frame compensation taking into account the bezel widths. The displays can be installed in landscape, portrait or full face-up positions.

“In large locations such as airports, shopping centres or high rise buildings, it can be difficult to have several displays controlled from a central location.” said Stuart Baker, National Manager of the Visual Information Systems department, Mitsubishi Electric Australia. “With the MDT displays however, this type of installation becomes much easier to achieve.”

Other features include twin ambient light sensors allowing the displays to automatically and accurately adjust brightness to suit any environment. Colour matching is also a key feature with 6-axis colour adjustment allowing users to adjust the hue and saturation of red, green, blue, magenta, yellow or cyan independently. Mitsubishi Electric optional Colour Match software, when used in conjunction with an external analyser can quickly and easily colour match any display wall with just the press of a key.

The MDT range also includes the standard features found in all Mitsubishi Electric commercial LCD displays, such as power and input scheduling, a screen saving function to prevent image retention, and PinP/PoutP modes. The MDT models come with a remote control with discrete input switching. Optional speakers, display feet and a silver bezel are also available.
