Mitsubishi Electric will unveil a Diamond Vision display at 1535 Broadway in New York City's iconic Times Square that exceeds 4k ultra-high-definition pixel density. The screen is a massive 25,610-square feet, and with a pixel density of 2,368 x 10,048, it will be the highest resolution LED video display in the world. The installation will employ a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision AVL-ODT10 large-scale display, which provides true 10mm pixel pitch spacing and uses a 3-in-1 surface mount LED (SMD) featuring Mitsubishi Electric's revolutionary Real Black LED technology.
"With 23,793,664 individual physical pixels, a video quality display of this size and density is a milestone in the industry. It exceeds 4k resolution by nearly 15 million pixels," says Todd Stih, national sales manager, Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc.
Due to the very high resolution and pixel density of the display, Mitsubishi Electric supplied a special control system to provide pixel-to-pixel mapping of content and life-like images. The image area of the screen can be segmented to display multiple pixel-for-pixel 1080 HD or 4k images simultaneously. The display canvas allows for two 4k images to be displayed side by side, with pixels remaining in the height and width for other content.
The Real Black LED technology was developed and introduced to overcome the shortfalls of these traditional technologies and marks what Mitsubishi Electric believes is the most significant advancement in large-scale outdoor LED technology since the conversion from CRT to LED in the 90's. The technology features black LEDs that provide a continuous black face to the display not previously possible with red, green and blue (RGB) lamp LED products or traditional SMD products which utilize white-faced LEDs.
