Mitsubishi unveils image processor

AUTHOR: Inavate

Mitsubishi will launch a real time, display wall image processor at ISE in February. The VC-MK4000 enables multiple, real-time window overlays with no dropped frames.

The product is ideal for high-end control room applications and can be configured to drive either 16 displays, with four windows per display, or eight displays with eight possible window overlays.

Each window displays RGB at 1920 x 1200 pixels (WUXGA) or video at 1920 x 1080 pixels (Full HD). All windows are displayed at native refresh rates, irrespective of the number of inputs shown or their type. Up to 32 VC-MK4000 units can be daisy-chained to allow up to 256 displays to be controlled as a single system -each one capable of showing eight overlaid windows, or a total of 32 windows per system.

As well as operating as a standalone unit, Mitsubishi can supply the VC-MK4000 combined with an optional PC platform (Base Computer). A new version of Mitsubishi’s display wall software, D-Wall5, will also be launched at ISE 2012.

The VC-MK4000 has multiple redundant power supplies, input cards and fan packs that are all hot-swappable. Mitsubishi’s fan packs are rated for 100,000 hours operation (mean time between failure), or more than 10 years of continuous 24/7 operation.

Visitors to the Mitsubishi Electric stand at ISE 2012 (Hall 2 A24) will be able to see the VC-MK4000 system demonstrated on the latest wide-format display wall cubes from Mitsubishi’s Seventy Series. The Seventy Series family now offers a wide range of options, including 16:10 and 16:9 format displays with conventional or LED lighting.
