New Mitsubishi Super-XGA 19" TFT Panel

Mitsubishi Electric recently announced development of a 19-inch Super-XGA color TFT-LCD module, built for rugged performance in a wide range of outdoor-signage applications.

The module, part number AA190EA01, boasts 1,500cd/m² super-high brightness, 100,000-hour service life durability at an environment temperature of 25°C and a market-leading operating-temperature range of between -20°C and 70°C. In addition, high-voltage inverters are not required for operation. The module is 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.

Mitsubishi Electric believes this display to be the world's first Super-XGA TFT-LCD measuring 19 inches.

TFT-LCDs increasingly are being used for digital signage in a variety of environments and applications, boosting demand for models offering extra brightness, durability and wider temperature resistance for outdoor use. At the same time, end users are demanding ever larger screens and higher resolutions to display as much information as possible on one screen. Mitsubishi plans to further expand its line-up of industrial TFT-LCD modules, which now come in 14 screen sizes.
