Advantages of Large Display Systems
Large display systems provide situational awareness, powerful collaboration and information sharing tools in command and control rooms, where many operators typically manage individual objectives in a 24/7 environment. Expanded display visibility enables operators to share common operational information among multiple applications, and solve problems quickly and efficiently as a team on an operational level. Display Walls also demonstrate leading edge technology to stakeholders.
Display Technologies Ideal for Command and Control Rooms
For a number of important reasons, the most common technology used in command and control room applications is a single chip DLP®-based rear projection module, commonly called a display wall cube.
- The DMD® chip - the core of the DLP® system - is a 100% reflective device able to withstand tremendous heat and light without image retention or burn-in.
- A single chip DLP® system requires fewer mechanical and electronic components to generate a picture, reducing complexity and the need for component replacement while extending system life.
- Mitsubishi’s display wall technology reduces screen-to-screen gaps to a minimum of 0.2mm, providing a seamless picture even with multiple display wall cubes. Another important space-saving advantage is a shallower depth, thanks to the use of mirror reflection.
Depending on the application, large flat LCD panels may also be used for display walls. However, this technology is suitable for small control rooms with mainly video content (such as security surveillance), which are not run 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This is because LCD panels are transmissive devices subject to burn-in and also minimizing screen-to-screen gaps are a technical challenge.
Mitsubishi Electric's Large Display Technologies
Mitsubishi Electric's Seventy Series offers a full lineup of display wall options for any application, based on both single chip DLP® rear projection and LCD flat panel display systems.
The Seventy Series with its “Smart 7” concept brings a new level of automation and machine intelligence to the 24/7 mission critical control room market. The powerful modular concept of the Seventy Series enables the display technology to be exactly tailored to customers’ requirements based on a choice of resolutions, screen sizes, lighting sources, dual or single lamps (for lamp models), rear or front maintenance, and various display inputs.
Mitsubishi Electric offers not only the world's largest and most flexible display lineup, but also advanced image processing and display management software to provide the ideal large display solution for control room customers.
