Mitsubishi Electric to Unveil World’s Largest High Definition Video Display. Diamond Vision® by Mitsubishi Electric to unveil a record-breaking 100,48 x 23,68 meter display, using revolutionary Real Black™ LED technology.
TOKYO, November 18, 2014 – Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will unveil a Diamond Vision display at 1535 Broadway in New York City’s iconic Times Square that exceeds 4k ultra-high-definition pixel density. The screen is a massive 2379.36-square meter, and with a pixel density of 2,368 x 10,048, it will be the highest resolution LED video display in the world. The installation will employ a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision AVLODT10 large-scale display, which provides true 10mm pixel pitch spacing and uses a 3-in-1 surface mount LED (SMD) featuring Mitsubishi Electric’s revolutionary Real Black LED technology.
“With 23,793,664 individual physical pixels, a video quality display of this size and density is a milestone in the industry. It exceeds 4k resolution by nearly 15 million pixels,” says Todd Stih, national sales manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.
Due to the very high resolution and pixel density of the display, Mitsubishi Electric supplied a special control system to provide pixel-to-pixel mapping of content and life-like images. The imagea rea of the screen can be segmented to display multiple pixel-for pixel 1080 HD or 4k images simultaneously. The display canvas allows for two 4k images to be displayed side by side, with pixels remaining in the height and width for other content. The use of the Real Black LED technology allows for deep, rich black levels and unsurpassed vertical viewing angles in an outdoor LED display product. The characteristics of Real Black LED technology will ensure that Times Square crowds have a clear view of the screen up close and in bright sunlight conditions. “We have worked on a number of record-breaking projects, but working with this type of pixel density and installing it in a 24/7 live environment presented unique challenges. However, we delivered the display modules earlier than scheduled due in part to great cooperation and teamwork with the project team at Vornado Realty Trust, our customer,” says Mike Brosko, operations manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.
