Mitsubishi Electric this morning announced a dramatic advance in the performance of its DLP videowall projection cubes. Two WUXGA models in 62" and 72", and two Full HD versions in 60" and 70" were revealed at ISE 2016 this morning, each offering an incredible minimum 100,000 hour lifespan - over 11 years of 24/7 operation - irrespective of the brightness mode employed. This represents a significant improvement over the 80,000 hours of earlier models when operating in Bright, Normal or Eco mode. 100,000 hours of continuous use was previously achievable only when operating in Advanced Eco mode. Mitsubishi's air-cooled projection engine requires no additional maintenance over its lifetime, representing a substantial reduction in operating costs.
The new projection engines deliver a contrast ratio of 3800:1 - double that of earlier models - and achieve similar light outputs but with a significant reduction in power consumption, helping to reduce running costs still further.
The new cubes join Mitsubishi's extensive range of DLP videowall cube systems which are being presented at ISE 2016. Products demonstrated this year include its VS-60U compact "Slim Cube" designed for smaller control room applications, the advanced 120 Series videowall aimed at more demanding control rooms, and its flagship 78 Series displays offering the highest standards of build specification, performance and versatility.
