Mitsubishi Electric Develops worlds first 19-inch Super-XGA TFT-LCD module for outdoor-signage applications

Mitsubishi Electric has developed a 19-inch Super-XGA color TFT-LCD module built for rugged performance in a wide range of outdoor-signage applications. The Mitsubishi 19-inch Super-XGA TFT-LCD module boasts 1,500cd/m2 super-high brightness, 100,000-hour service life durability at an environment temperature of 25 degrees Celsius and a market-leading operating-temperature range of between -20 degrees and 70 degrees Celsius. In addition, high-voltage inverters are not required for operation. The display, which Mitsubishi Electric believes is the world’s first Super-XGA TFT-LCD measuring 19 inches, will be available from October 1, with an initial production of 1,000 units per month.

The Mitsubishi 19-inch Super-XGA TFT-LCD module is also fully compliant with the European Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS) directive, and is completely mercury-free. TFT-LCDs increasingly are being used for digital signage in a variety of environments and applications, raising the demand for models offering extra brightness, durability and heat/cold resistance for outdoor uses.
