Mitsubishi Megaview Wall

If you have the need for a huge display, Mitsubishi's latest large-scale product, the MegaView Wall, is what you need. By combining 50-inch display "cubes" with state-of-the-art controller technology, Mitsubishi creates an enormous video wall. Specifically designed for power plant control rooms or retail security environments where a display is mission critical, these units can run non-stop, 24 hours a day.
Each of the "cubes" has an XGA resolution (1024 x 768) and offer superior color reproduction. Each cube is color matched to the other cubes, through the use of a color calibration system. These individual cubes are "rear projection" devices and feature an ultra-short (26-inch depth), optical focusing system to save installation space. Their long-life lamps offer energy-efficient power consumption.
Other important features of the Mitsubishi VS-50FD10U include:
Digital Micromirror Device (DMD) - This Mitsubishi designed monitor engine uses a DMD chip for display -- this is not conventional CRT technology.
No burn-in - The DMD semiconductor is a reflective device and is not adversely affected when projecting a fixed pattern over a long period of time, like most CRT displays.
Color calibration - Internal circuits compensate for color tone discrepancies between projection units, which provides consistent, outstanding color and brilliance uniformity.
