Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Showcases its Latest Narrow Pixel Pitch Direct View LED for Command and Control

SAN DIEGO, Calif., January 31, 2017 Mitsubishi Electric US, Inc. Visual and Imaging Systems Division will introduce its VS-15NP160 narrow pixel pitch (NPP) indoor direct-view LED  at DISTRIBUTECH, San Diego, Jan. 31 – Feb. 2, 2017, in Booth #2921. The Mitsubishi VS-15NP160 is designed and built to address the demanding needs of continuous operations in any command and 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 with dynamic image continuous 24/7 operation.

The VS-15NP160 direct-view LED display is built in Mitsubishi Electric’s factory in Japan, with 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 easy 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 built for control rooms,” said James Chan, director, marketing and business planning, Mitsubishi Electric Visual and Imaging Systems Division.   “The VS-15NP160 provides a more cost-effective solution for most regular-sized installations, while providing optimized viewing distance and viewing angle, maximizing a project’s budgets. This 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, and does not cause eye fatigue that might be experienced by operators using brighter displays.”

“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 78,000 display units installed in mission-critical systems worldwide.”

Mitsubishi Electric’s unique Natural Color Matrix (NCM) technology is built into the VS-15NP160 to produce 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 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.

The VS-15NP160 display modules are built with proprietary anti-burn-in circuitry that prevents burn-in phenomenon when used in applications displaying static images for long periods of time as experienced in many control room applications.  Consequently, the VS-15NP160 LED display preserves its uniform luminance and chromaticity over much longer periods of time than conventional LED displays that are built for brilliant digital signage.

Mitsubishi Electric’s new VS-15NP160 LED display, along with its entire line of control room displays, is designed to run continuously without unnecessary interruption resulting from product attrition or performance degradation.  Additional information can be found at
