Mitsubishi Electric announces that it will reveal LED option for its Seventy Series range of cube displays at ISE 2010. The new LED cube engine is fully compatible with the existing Seventy Series cube chassis and hardware, offering users an easy upgrade path from conventional to solid-state lighting.
Unlike conventional mercury lamps, solid-state light sources do not need a rotating color wheel, according to the company; their wider gamut delivers richer colors and produces a more uniform screen brightness. They also create far less long-term environmental impact, and the elimination of consumables such as lamps and replacement color wheels reduces the long-term cost of ownership.
The new cubes share a common set of features with the conventionally-lit Seventy Series cubes; features designed to make them quick to install and easy to manage. Seventy Series cubes can be supplied with a unique Auto-Geometry set-up option that produces perfectly-aligned images automatically. In the new LED version, the red, green and blue LED light sources are monitored individually for even greater accuracy. The LED version offers three different brightness modes, for normal, bright or economy operation. Power consumption and light output is adjusted automatically to ensure the best quality image in each mode.
Mitsubishi's Seventy Series cube range is available in 50", 60" and 67" sizes, in both 1024 x 768 pixel and 1400 x 1050 pixel resolutions.
