Mitsubishi Digital Electronics launched its new 65-inch LCD monitor at InfoComm 2010, the first monitor in Mitsubishi's line that is IP-addressable using the company's own networking software for control and management. The new MDT651S 65-inch LCD monitor is designed for traditional conference room visual display, as well as videoconferencing and digital signage, according to the company.
"Our new 65-inch completes our LCD monitor product line," said James Chan, senior director of product marketing in Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, in a statement. "Whether it is for digital signage, lobby displays or conference room visuals and videoconferencing, the MDT651S large-sized monitor fits the bill with its sleek design and high-quality finish."
Company officials said the MDT651S 65-inch LCD is one of the first monitors to offer both front and rear ambient light sensors that detect lighting conditions in two areas. These sensors adjust the monitor's brightness level based on its readings and automatically balance image brightness for optimum viewing, regardless of the brightness of the ambient light either in front of or behind the monitor.
Mitsubishi said its new 65-inch LCD could also streamline installation and reduce the number of necessary components. It eliminates cable clutter with a built-in Cat-5 receiver that keeps image quality consistent at cable lengths of up to 500 feet between source and display. Video and RS-485 serial-control signals can be simultaneously delivered over the same cable, eliminating the need for a separate serial control. Users can also daisy chain up to five monitors, making content delivery easy and more efficient.
The monitor has a narrow aluminum bezel and can be tiled up to 25 displays in a five-wide by five-high configuration. A frame compensation function helps adjust for the width of the bezels so images are accurately displayed, the company says.
The MDT651S includes new programmable scheduling and multi-level screen saver functions. Integrators can program up to seven different intervals by time, day of the week, input port and separate content feeds. Displays can be automatically turned on or off, or set to one of four screen-saver levels. A cooling fan is also automatically activated when internal temperatures reach a pre-designated limit.
Mitsubishi's new 65-inch monitor offers a range of color temperature adjustments, according to the company, as well as a six-axis color fine-tuning function. Precise color control allows independent hue and saturation modifications for creating exact color images, particularly in broadcasts, retail food imagery, digital posters and logo reproduction, Mitsubishi says. It offers full high-definition 1920x1080 with 700 cd/m2 brightness and a 2,000:1 contrast ratio. It supports picture-in-picture, picture-out-of-picture, and side-by-side image configurations for broadcasting and videoconferencing applications.
