Mitsubishi Electric up sizes its LCD screens again


SYDNEY 23 May, 2007 – Mitsubishi Electric Australia has today announced the release of the 42” LDT421V WXGA LCD display. The new LCD has the largest display space of any of the Mitsubishi Electric screens and provides any shop or boardroom with a professional touch. Designed primarily for the display of video and messaging content, the screens are perfect for digital signage, message boards, video conferencing or retail kiosks.

The tile matrix capability allows the user to link up to 16 panels at one time to form a single configuration providing the opportunity to display images to scale. In large commercial spaces, this digital signage application delivers maximum impact.

The high contrast display incorporates motion shift and Gamma control; a screen protection feature which moves the images minutely in different directions to stop the image retention (burn-in) which can occur after extended use. The screen also features a cooling fan and brightness controls to help protect the life of the screen.

The LDT421V display has a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and a brightness level of 500 cd/m² to create a picture with incredible visual detail.

“Due to its great impact and professional look, digital signage is being used in more areas to help companies stand out from the competition. Trade shows in particular are seeing an increase in the number of stands making use of the eye-catching displays. Important reasons for choosing to go with digital signage are the ability to change the screens messaging at short notice and the impact of linking the screens together to create a gigantic image, delivering maximum impact”, said Paul Calderara, Mitsubishi Electric Australia Digital Electronics General Manager. “The LDT421V expands the current range to three models with even larger sizes to be released soon. The entire LDT range is extremely cost effective while providing the highest level of product quality” he said.

The LDT421V comes with Picture in Picture (PIP) technology, allowing two images to run on one screen simultaneously. The display also has a rapid response time of 8 milliseconds ensuring fast moving pictures are free from ghosting.

To help preserve the life span of the panels the LDT421V detects when an input signal is no longer active and will automatically switch to power save mode to help protect the display. It also has a built in scheduling facility, which allows the user to set automatic times for the display to switch on and off. This way the model is working for the hours you want, while conserving the lifespan for the remainder of the time.

Mitsubishi Electric two-year limited onsite warranty is included with purchase.

Optional speakers are available for this model – Model No: SP-421V
