Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Rolls Out its New Narrow Pixel Pitch Direct View LED Precisely Designed for Control Room Use

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, January 23, 2018 Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Visual and Imaging Systems Division will introduce its new VS-15NP160 narrow pixel pitch (NPP) indoor direct-view LED  at DISTRIBUTECH, San Antonio, Jan. 23 – 25, 2018, in Booth #2535. The Mitsubishi Electric VS-15NP160 is designed and built to address the demanding needs of continuous operations in a control room. The space-saving LED display can be used as an alternative to LCD flat panels and rear-projection cubes in applications that require seamless displays running continuous 24/7 operation.

The VS-15NP160 features 240x270mm (9.5×10.6”) display modules consisting of SMD 3-in-1 LEDs clustered in true 1.5mm pixel pitch, housed in 480x540mm (18.9×21.3”) cabinets. The modular units allow simple and flexible installations, as well as straightforward care and maintenance of the display.  An array of 18 modules, configured six across and three down, creates a display with 1080P resolution and a 444,444 per square meter pixel density.

“Compared to other direct view LED displays with higher pixel density and narrower pixel pitch, the VS-15NP160 offers a targeted display with features, reliability and durability specifically built for control rooms,” said James Chan, marketing director, Mitsubishi Electric Visual and Imaging Systems Division.   “The VS-15NP160 provides optimized viewing distance and viewing angle and is also an ideal solution for integrators who are looking for a direct-view LED display that saves space, is robust enough for true 24/7 operations as proprietary technology was incorporated into designing this display to prevent burn-ins.  This new VS-15NP160 LED display also has a wide adjustable brightness range that prevents operator eye fatigue during prolonged viewing.”

“With our original Mitsubishi Electric technology features, along with a signal and power redundancy design, we offer the industry’s first direct-view LED display truly designed for control rooms,” said Chan.  “We’re committed to offering reliable and durable displays that control rooms require, not only in this new VS-15NP160, but in our entire line of control room displays, including our rear-projection display with more than 80,000 display units installed in mission-critical systems worldwide.”

Mitsubishi Electric’s unique Natural Color Matrix (NCM) technology is also built into the VS-15NP160 to produce natural but accurate and brilliant colors.  It is also built with 2-dimensional noise reduction (2DNR) to minimize noise from compressed images present in some motion video files.  Moreover, it features intelligent power consumption control – a feature that limits and optimizes power consumption while detecting image brightness across the display wall to automatically show the best image in real time, all the time.

As mentioned earlier, the VS-15NP160 display is built with proprietary anti-burn-in circuitry that prevents burn-in phenomenon when used in displaying static images over prolonged periods  like in many control rooms.  Consequently, the VS-15NP160 LED display preserves its uniform luminance and chromaticity over a longer lifespan than conventional LED displays that are built for brilliant digital signage.

Mitsubishi Electric’s new VS-15NP160 LED display is designed to run continuously without unnecessary interruption resulting from product attrition or performance degradation.  The display is made in Japan, with true and tried quality, perfect for any projects requiring Trade Agreement Act (TAA) compliance such as those in many Federal and state government installations.  The VS-15NP160 Additional information can be found at
