Narrow-Bezel, 55-inch LCD MDT551S Monitor Expands Mitsubishi Electric’s High-End Flat Panel Display Options

IRVINE, Calif., November 8, 2011 — Mitsubishi Electric announces the release of its narrow-bezel, 55-inch monitor (MDT551S). This latest addition to its high-end line is designed for video conferencing, gaming, retail kiosks, digital signage and other applications needing robust, long-lasting static or interactive display monitors. Mitsubishi’s new MDT551S brings video to life with dynamic and customizable advertising, exciting welcome messages, and vital, up-to-the-minute news and information. Its sleek, modern, brushed aluminum design will also stand out in any conference room as a focal point of digital display.

“Our new narrow bezel monitor makes any display more attractive and vibrant,” said Brandon Tarnow, brand manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Mitsubishi has the right size monitor to fit most applications or locations.”

Installation versatility is engineered into every monitor: Inputs range from DVI-D, D-Sub 15 and HDMI™ as well as DisplayPort™. The MDT551S features an optional CAT5 receiver and transmitter box, and uses Mitsubishi’s own networking software for remote management. It offers cutting-edge data processing and technology in an attractive modern design for flexibility and reliability.

The MDT551S streamlines installation and reduces the number of necessary components with two built-in, 10-watt speakers for on-the-fly audio. Connectivity options include DisplayPort™ for clear, crisp video and audio transmission over a single cable, and RJ45 LAN support, so a connected monitor can be controlled from remote locations over a network.

Mitsubishi’s new MDT551S monitor also offers optional single- and multi-touch screen interactivity, one of the easiest PC interfaces to use. With the optional touch screen interface, the monitor recognizes up to 36 distinct actuation points, including touch, gesturing, squeezing and pinching. This makes computing resources more available to untrained or disabled computer users.

The 55-inch monitor also eliminates cable clutter with an optional CAT5 receiver that keeps image quality consistent, even with cable lengths of up to 500 feet (150 meters). Video and RS-485 serial-control signals can be simultaneously delivered over the same CAT5 cable, eliminating the need for a separate, distance-limiting serial-control cable. Users can also daisy chain up to three monitors, making content delivery easy and more efficient.

“Mitsubishi makes robust, reliable LCD monitors that are used in a wide range of environments,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “We listened to market feedback and created the narrow-bezel 55-inch to give even more installation potential to our channel partners.”
