Digital Signage in a Box—A Turn-Key Bundle from Mitsubishi Electric and Shuttle Computer Group

Digital Signage in a Box—A Turn-Key Bundle from Mitsubishi Electric and Shuttle Computer Group

IRVINE, Calif., May 22, 2013 — You don’t need to be a graphic designer or IT expert to make effective and attractive digital signage. Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. and Shuttle Computer Group, Inc. have created a new turn-key hardware, software and content system bundle that features everything you need to create compelling digital signage. No other display or media player company has offered such a combination of free professionally-designed graphics with a digital-signage-in-a-box hardware solution.

The bundle features one or two 42-inch or 46-inch commercial-grade Mitsubishi Electric LCD flat panel display(s), Shuttle digital media player(s) and all necessary cables. It also includes 90 days of free content management software and service.

“Our new partnership with Shuttle makes it really easy for people to migrate into digital signage, allowing them to quickly and easily install, connect and start using their signs right away,” said James Chan, vice president of marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “They can create a visual feast for menus, advertising and other messaging and/or content in a virtual plug-and-play scenario.”

Many people feel they need technical proficiency in computers and artistic expertise for graphic design to create and use digital signage effectively. With 90 days’ free content management software and service, users can employ templates to quickly and easily create and display their content. And Shuttle offers on-line and or telephone support Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time.

“Our customers don’t need to be the experts — that’s why we’re here,” said Marty Lash, director, sales and marketing, Shuttle Computer Group, Inc. “With Mitsubishi Electric’s and Shuttle’s combined reputation for quality and excellence, we offer the best monitors, media players and design expertise to create a turn-key solution.”

The turn-key bundles (Mitsubishi Electric part numbers L422-STXS35, L422-2-STDS61, L462-STXS35, L462-2-STDS61) come with either one or two 42-inch (LDT422V) or 46-inch Mitsubishi Electric monitors (LDT462V) that can be set up in portrait or landscape formats. A networkable Shuttle media player (XS35V2-MITS or DS61V1.1-MITS) and associated cables are also included. The monitors offer a wide range of connectivity options, such as HDMI™ and DVI-D for clear, crisp video and audio transmission over a single cable.

The 90-day free service begins with activation of the digital signage player(s). At the end of the free service period, users have three options:
• Continue subscribing to an annual service contract for as low as $49.95 a month;
• Discontinue the service and keep running the latest existing signage content; or
• Remove the software, erasing all existing content and restoring the player to a standard PC, and then use other PC-based digital signage software, if desired.

“During your first 90 days, you can try new designs, update and upload new content, as well as experiment with digital signage to find out what works best, all with free content management service. No other bundle brings you this kind of flexibility,” added Lash.

The bundles are targeted for availability in June. The hardware devices (monitors and players) come with Mitsubishi Electric’s and Shuttle’s standard three-year limited warranty on parts and labor. Terms and conditions apply.

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions Debuts New Projectors That Make 3D Home Theater Viewing Easier and More Affordable

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions Debuts New Projectors That Make 3D Home Theater Viewing Easier and More Affordable

HC8000D and HC7800DW Turn Standard 2D Content into Eye-Popping 3D

IRVINE, Calif., September 6, 2011 —Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. showcases two of its new home theater projectors designed make 3D home theater viewing easier and more affordable: the HC8000D and HC7900DW projectors debut at the CEDIA Home Theater Show in Indianapolis, September 5-8, 2012 in Booth #1403.

“We’ve heard that there isn’t enough 3D content in the marketplace, and that is definitely an issue,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Our new projectors have an amazing 2D-to-3D conversion feature that actually turns regular 2D films into amazing 3D movies. Even old movies like The Wizard of Oz can become a 3D masterpiece, right in your own home.”

The HC7900DW and HC8000D projectors use one of the industry’s best 2D-to-3D Frame Rate Conversion technologies, resulting in a near-perfect simulation of a true 3D frame of vision. Using Mitsubishi’s own algorithms in calculating and interpolating multiple depth levels in a 2D image, this new, high-speed frame reproduction technology produces detailed, high-definition 3D images with minimum crosstalk or distortion so 3D content appears to literally jump off the screen, even in high-speed action scenes.

The HC8000D supports Mitsubishi’s proprietary 3D glasses (sold separately), but both models are compatible with Universal 3D glasses, making family viewing easy and more affordable. The projectors also allow friends to watch 3D sporting events like football games in a party atmosphere, with attendees bringing their own 3D glasses.

“With the HC8000 and the HC7900, we solved two of the biggest issues with 3D home theater,” added Kozuki. “Now there are practically unlimited 3D movies available, and you can invite your friends over to watch them in 3D without a huge investment.”

Mitsubishi’s HC8000D boasts an impressive 330,000:1 contrast ratio for rich details, even in darkly-lit movies or film noir and 1300 lumens of brightness, making it a great option for gaming. Its extra-long lamp life, up to 5000* hours in low mode, can provide years of movie, television and gaming enjoyment, depending on usage.

The new HC7900DW projector features 150,000:1 contrast ratio, 1500 lumens of brightness and up to 5000* hours of lamp life as well. It comes in a white cabinet, and when installed, can easily match the aesthetics of a white ceiling.

Both projectors use Texas Instruments’ latest DLP® .065-inch DMD chip to create exciting, vibrant 2D and 3D images in full high-definition, 1080P resolution. An ultra-hushed fan in each creates 23 dBa in low mode, so viewers only hear quiet dialogue or soft music during a movie or television show, not an annoying fan hum.

Two of the latest HDMI™ version 1.4 inputs in each projector support 3D signals as well as provide easy set-up options for multiple video inputs. The projectors’ RS232 support offers plug-and-play connectivity for easy integration with third-party remote operations and control in higher-end installations.

The HC8000D will be available through authorized Mitsubishi Electric distributors and dealers and the HC7900DW through dealers and on the Internet, just in time for the year-end holiday gift giving season. Both will be competitively priced.

“Our new slogan is, Your World, Bigger, and it’s obvious that Mitsubishi does exactly that by making your content choices bigger and your home theater experience more affordable,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America. “We’ve received quite a few Editor’s Choice Awards with previous models; and initial feedback is that these two new ones are even better.”

Mitsubishi Stands Apart with Partner Synergy

Mitsubishi Electric Stands Apart with Industry Partner Synergy and Depth of Display Offerings

IRVINE, Calif., June 13, 2012 —In an increasingly commoditized marketplace, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. sets itself apart in many ways: the wide range of product offerings, overall product excellence and reliability, and synergistic partnerships with industry leaders to bring the best solutions and services to its customers.

Mitsubishi Electric is the only manufacturer that makes a full line of displays, including LED display boards, projectors, LCD flat panel monitors, data walls and televisions designed for a wide range of industries and applications.

At this year’s InfoComm Expo, the audio/visual display industry’s biggest show, Mitsubishi Electric will share the spotlight with Cybertouch, DisplayNote, IAdea, Luidia, Qwizdom®, ThinkLogical™, and Anacore in Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

CyberTouch brings its touch-screen expertise to bear on three displays in the booth, including the Photon, a multi-touch frame that converts any Mitsubishi Electric video wall to an interactive multi-user experience. CyberTouch’s Rio line of multi-touch monitors recognizes up to 32 simultaneous touch inputs and is a turn-key solution for Mitsubishi Electric dealers who want to integrate this technology. CyberTouch offers gesturing, squeezing and pinching functionalities to make interactive resources easier for untrained or casual multiple users.

DisplayNote’s software allows users to connect to Mitsubishi Electric projectors or monitors and control display content using a tablet or smart phone. Users can view, annotate, save and collaborate with other users using DisplayNote.

IAdea will be exhibiting its media players with digital signage content shown via a user-friendly interface; users can easily connect the media players to a network and effectively (and intuitively) display digital signage. Using the latest HTML5 dynamic content open standard, IAdea media players can display RSS feeds, live web and even news and weather feeds. These media players are also widely supported by many major digital signage software brands.

Luidia returns to the Mitsubishi Electric booth to showcase its interactive eBeam Edge™ platform that creates, saves and shares meeting notes, dynamic lessons, diagrams and more. Weighing less than four ounces, the eBeam Edge works with a Mitsubishi Electric projector to transform walls, traditional whiteboards and flat surfaces into interactive workspaces. This eliminates the need to replace these surfaces with new and costly dedicated interactive ones. They can also work with large-screen, flat panel monitors or display walls.

Quizdom’s WizTeach™ is annotation software that works in single and dual pen mode with Mitsubishi Electric’s projectors for greater collaboration and interactivity. It has more than 70 subject-specific tools for drawing, math, literacy, voting, science and geography. WizTeach annotations save directly into Word, Power Point and Excel, and work with a browser and almost any software application. These tools are designed to improve teaching and learning outcomes.

Thinklogical is one of the world’s foremost developers and manufacturers of high-performance fiber optic video, audio, KVM (keyboard, visual display and mouse) and peripheral extension and routing solutions. The company will show its Velocity Extender product — the VelSys3 Fiber Optic Input Card — built specifically for Mitsubishi Electric video walls. The VelSys3 plugs directly into any Mitsubishi Electric Seventy Series DLP® cube’s optic engine or Seventy Series: Flat monitors as an optional input board for a quick fiber optic connection.

Adding to the excitement in the booth is content provided by Anacore, a leading custom software development company specializing in collaboration and digital signage systems. Visitors will experience powerful and dynamic interactive tools that streamline collaborative discussions, reminiscent of the high-tech wonders found only in futuristic movies.

Mitsubishi Electric works with companies that have a solid reputation in their respective areas of expertise, be it touch screens, interactivity, or thin client communications. Mitsubishi Electric also provides a support network to resolve issues that may arise with one call, to one company.

“Unlike other manufacturers, if you have a problem with a Mitsubishi Electric product, you call us first,” said James Chan, vice president of marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Even if the issue lies with one of our software or third-party providers, we’ll coordinate the service call so our customers have one point of contact.

“Our core competence is our expertise in display technology that goes back decades,” added Chan. “From huge Diamond Vision™ displays in stadiums and on Time Square to our big-screen TVs, Mitsubishi Electric makes display devices that are specifically designed to improve the viewer’s visual experience.”

Mitsubishi Electric Upgrades LED Engine for Seventy Series Display Cubes

Mitsubishi Electric Upgrades LED Engine for Seventy Series Display Cubes

IRVINE, Calif., June 12, 2012 — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. announces a new high-brightness LED engine for its modular Seventy Series display cubes. The engine may be seen at InfoComm Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

The new LED engine displays images almost twice as bright as previous models while power consumption and thermal dissipation are decreased by 22 percent. Another innovation is an emergency function: if one of the three LED colors (red, green, blue) fails, the other two compensate to create an image until the LED can be replaced. There’s no image loss or downtime, which is important for mission-critical applications.

“Mitsubishi Electric is known for its excellence in display technology, and this new LED engine proves it by delivering greater brightness while using less energy,” said Matt Krstulja, director of sales, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “I’m pleased to announce that we are shipping and ready for new orders.”

The new engine boasts a direct fiber-optic option, eliminating the need for external fiber receivers, DVI cabling and associated power supplies. This provides simpler, cleaner installations and fewer points of failure.

Because of the Seventy Series’ modular design, this second-generation LED engine fits Mitsubishi Electric’s 4:3 aspect ratio display cubes in 50-, 60-, 67- and 80-inch formats, so users can upgrade easily.

When display cubes are in a tiled configuration, it is important to balance and blend colors to achieve consistency across the wall. Mitsubishi Electric cubes feature an Automatic Color Space Control that blends and adjusts colors automatically while its Digital Gradation Circuit distributes brightness uniformly across the screen. These two technologies ensure brilliant, rich image reproduction evenly from edge to edge across multi-screen configurations.

Each Seventy Series display cube has three built-in sensors (red, blue, green) and a dynamic color control and brightness balancing system that continually monitor the output of each cube, share the data with adjacent units and automatically adjust overall performance. This level of automation maintains image uniformity of multi-screen configurations, with no external action required.

Seventy Series cubes have an internal data processing function that displays up to four windows per cube, so displays can be installed without an external image processor. Multiple windows can be moved freely and, when used in combination with Mitsubishi Electric’s D-Wall Software, the entire imaging system can be controlled from a user-friendly graphical interface.

Thanks to Mitsubishi Electric display cube’s modular design, after replacements or upgrades are installed, the cubes automatically adjust color and brightness across the wall, reducing costly downtime. The replaced units can be listed on Mitsubishi’s Owners’ Circle for resale. Sellers can go to the Mitsubishi Electric Mega View website, http://www.Mitsubishi-MegaView.com, and look for Owners’ Circle, listed under the “Resources” tab.

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America’s new LED engine is available through authorized systems integrators and comes with a two-year limited warranty on parts and labor. Other terms and conditions apply.

Mitsubishi Electric Exhibits Flagship 70-inch and 55-inch Edge-Lit LED Monitors at InfoComm

Mitsubishi Electric Exhibits Flagship 70-inch and 55-inch Edge-Lit
LED Monitors at InfoComm

IRVINE, Calif., June 12, 2012 —Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. exhibits two new edge-lit, LED monitors at InfoComm, the largest audio/visual industry show in the country. The narrow bezel flagship 70-inch MDT701S and 55-inch MDT552S LED monitors are being shown for the first time in Mitsubishi’s Booth #C8308 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15, 2012.

“Our new monitors are designed to create a spectacular image in a super-thin design using edge-lit LED technology that is perfect for today’s conference rooms and digital signage applications,” said Brandon Tarnow, brand manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc.

In the latest nod to open standards, these new monitors offer an Intel OPS (Open Pluggable Standard) Card Slot for easy installation and maintenance. They also come with built-in speakers that fire toward the bottom to eliminate sound reverberation, which often occurs with rear-directed speakers.

Connecting to various devices is simple with the built-in, plug-and-play USB Hub. Users can connect a video conference camera, mouse and keyboard directly to the monitor, avoiding messy cables. Five additional hubs can be cascaded onto the system so that up to sixteen separate peripherals can be connected at once.

As the first manufacturer to announce a Crestron Connected™ display, Mitsubishi Electric’s new monitors can be easily connected to any enterprise network using standard Ethernet cable and Crestron software. For quick point-to-point network management and control, users download free RoomView® Express software to any connected laptop or PC or select server-based Fusion RV™ for global enterprise management from anywhere, anytime using any web-enabled laptop computer, Apple® or Android™ smart phone or tablet. The displays can be seamlessly monitored, managed and controlled using either RoomView Express or Fusion RV, with no programming required, or users take full control of the display from any Crestron control system.

These new LED monitors use Mitsubishi Electric’s proprietary algorithms to create Super Resolution, which can take a standard definition image and translate it into high-definition for a rich, detailed image.

Mitsubishi Electric’s MDT701S and MDT552S LED monitors offer front- and rear-ambient light sensors that detect lighting conditions in two areas. These sensors adjust the monitor’s brightness level and balance image brightness for optimum viewing.

“Digital signage and conference room applications need flat panel monitors that are robust and easy to install and use,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “Our new monitors bring a combination of features that are important to today’s integrators and sophisticated end users.”

Both the MDT701S and MDT552S will be available in fourth quarter of 2012 through authorized Mitsubishi dealers.

Mitsubishi Announces 4K Industry-Grade Display

Mitsubishi Electric Committed to 4K-Resolution with New 56P-QF65LCU LCD Industrial-Grade Display

IRVINE, Calif., April 24, 2012 — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. continues its commitment to 4K resolution with its new 56P-QF65LCU monitor. This LCD display offers QFHD (quadruple full high-definition) resolution with an unsurpassed 3840 x 2160 pixels, which means that more than eight megapixels are displayed on one 56-inch screen—an enormous amount of crystal clear visual content on one device.

“While some manufacturers have cut 4K from their product lines, Mitsubishi is committed to this necessary resolution,” said Matt Krstulja, national sales manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “There are many applications, particularly in industrial, health and physical sciences, which need this type of super-high resolution. Mitsubishi Electric is here to meet that need.”

The 56P-QF65LCU monitor is specifically designed for small group collaboration; the 4K super high-definition resolution makes it ideally suited for environments that may have limited real estate or in intimate settings where people must analyze dense amounts of data. These include applications in science, engineering, financial services, mapping, satellite imagery, utilities, government, armed forces and law enforcement.

Mitsubishi’s 56P-QF65LCU allows one person to observe a wide range of data on one screen. The new QFHD monitor condenses information from a tiled display wall used in electric plants, government and armed forces facilities, police situation rooms, financial control rooms and other environments, sending them to one source for quick and accurate viewing on a single LCD panel. Managers can streamline and supervise operations at one location on one screen for quick and efficient observation and monitoring.

The 56P-QF65LCU LCD monitor uses a Super MVA LCD featuring 3840 x 2160 pixels with a 50,000 hour back-light lifetime, and has two brightness modes for installation flexibility: power-saving normal (480 watts) and bright (540 watts).

Sending information to this display requires only a computer or display wall processor capable of four 1080p output channels.

A standard VESA Mounting Structure is included to allow the monitor to be easily installed on a wall or ceiling. With a wide viewing angle of 176° +/- horizontally and vertically, the 56P-QF65LCU LCD monitor can be clearly viewed from virtually any seating position.

Mitsubishi’s 56P-QF65LCU is available through authorized Mitsubishi Electric dealers and systems integrators. The monitor comes with Mitsubishi Electric’s two-year limited warranty on parts and labor. Terms and conditions apply.

Mitsubishi Electric Shipping New Wide Screen Data Wall Cubes

IRVINE, Calif., March 14, 2012 — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. is shipping three new widescreen DLP® cubes in its popular Seventy Series line of video wall products. These displays incorporate Mitsubishi’s most advanced technologies, providing innovative automated features that boost image quality and color balance, extend the life of the LED engine under certain operating conditions, and improve overall usability.

The new widescreen product line is available in three sizes and two resolutions:
• 62-inch diagonal with WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200 pixels) resolution (VS-62WE/F70U)
• 70-inch diagonal with full HD 1080P (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) resolution (VS-70HE/F70U)
• 72-inch diagonal with WUXGA resolution (VS-72WE/F70U)
All models are available in either front- or rear-service configurations, depending on the customer’s installation environment.

“There is a lot of interest in our new widescreen displays and our dealers have been waiting for inventory,” said Matt Krstulja, director of sales, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “I’m glad to announce that we are currently shipping and ready for new orders.”

The various screen sizes were carefully selected to allow system integrators to configure systems with maximum surface area and pixel density. The new widescreen cubes offer integrators flexible display solutions in 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio formats, capitalizing on the total display area.

The wide-aspect ratio Seventy Series cubes take advantage of Mitsubishi’s VS-WE75U LED projection engine that is designed to operate in native WUXGA resolution. This new LED engine and Mitsubishi’s LED power driver allow for three power modes: bright, normal and ECO. ECO mode provides optimal power consumption and helps to increase the lifetime of the LED.

New High-Performance, Large-Venue Projectors from Mitsubishi Electric

New High-Performance, Large-Venue Projectors from Mitsubishi Electric

Designed for Houses of Worship, Malls, Museums, Large Meeting Rooms

IRVINE, Calif., February 7, 2012 — Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. today announced its new XL7100U, WL7200U and UL7400U high-brightness LCD projectors designed for large venues such as meeting rooms, church sanctuaries, museums and auditoriums. With up to 6000 lumens, multiple lens options and a wide range of resolutions, these projectors can display large-screen presentations, film, data and images that have a lasting impact.

“These new projectors combine our highest quality lenses with advanced image-processing technology to create bold, vivid images,” said Wayne Kozuki, product manager, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc.

Mitsubishi’s new XL7100U, WL7200U, and UL7400U projectors are ideal for use in malls, casinos and other performance spaces such as planetariums or vision tunnels, where designers and artists can create and showcase visually stimulating images on curved, bent, or arched surfaces. All three new Mitsubishi models offer 360-degree projection and geometric warping so images can be created on curved screens or surfaces, in either front- or rear-projection mode, ahead, behind, on the floor or a ceiling.

“These projectors’ multiple connectivity options allow them to meet almost any architectural requirement, and Mitsubishi’s reputation for reliability makes these LCD projectors a great choice for designers and systems integrators,” said Kozuki.

Each LCD projector features advanced technologies and the same design; they vary in brightness and resolution for increased installation flexibility. The XL7100U offers 1024×768 resolution with 6000 lumens; the WL7200U offers 1280×800 resolution with 5500 lumens; and the UL7400U offers 1920×1200 resolution at 5000 lumens.

For exceptional projector performance, Mitsubishi incorporates extra-low dispersion glass into its 17-lens, 13-cluster structure to produce brilliant colors while reducing chromatic aberration. Each of the six colors (red, green, blue, yellow, cyan and white) can be controlled and refined independently to create a broad range of color gamuts for excellent image reproduction.

Mitsubishi’s innovative Super Resolution image-processing algorithm analyzes and corrects blurred components of an original image so the projectors reproduce fine details with remarkable clarity.

Mitsubishi’s new XL7100U, WL7200U and UL7400U projectors offer powered zoom, focus and vertical and horizontal lens shift, so placing an image on a screen is easily done with a touch of a button. Four optional lenses designed in a bayonet mount offer simple release-and-turn removal, making lens changes quick and easy.

Each projector features a new roll-up filter to help save on maintenance time and costs. The cartridge-type filter can be set to roll automatically every 500, 750 or 1,000 hours to reduce the accumulation of dust. Manual winding is also available, allowing quick and easy access to a clean filter.

Users can enjoy big, bright, bold images for up to 4,000 hours* of lamp life before lamp service is needed. The projector’s stand-by (low) mode uses less than 0.3 watts of power and the projectors also feature an automatic power-off setting, both of which help to conserve energy and avoid waste.

The XL7100U and WL7200U projectors are currently available through Mitsubishi’s network of authorized dealers; the UL7400U will be offered in March. Each comes with Mitsubishi’s three-year limited warranty on parts and labor, and a one-year limited warranty on the lamp. These projectors are also covered by Mitsubishi’s award-winning three-year Express Replacement Assistance (ERA) Program, a nationwide comprehensive service provided for units under warranty that offers next business-day** replacement for down units.

“These three new LCD projectors show our commitment to using the best technology available in every projector we build to ensure the highest level of reliability and customer satisfaction,” said James Chan, vice president, marketing, Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America, Inc. “When you need reliable, brilliant display technology, think of Mitsubishi.”
