Mitsubishi Electric launches world’s first large-scale OLED screen

Sept. 13, 2010
Date Announced: 13 Sep 2010 Tokyo – Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will launch “Diamond Vision OLED,” the world’s first, large-scale display system in the 100-inch and above range that uses organic light emitting diode (OLED) as its light source. Sales will begin worldwide on September 21.The Diamond Vision OLED, designed for indoor use, delivers seamless, vivid images using Mitsubishi Electric’s newly developed video controlling technology. The screen offers wide horizontal and verticalviewing angles reaching approximately ±80 degrees, and features a maximum brightness of 1,200cd/m² and twice high contrast compared to our LED product, making it suitable for installation in relatively brightly-lit areas such as commercial facilities, stations and airports.Built by connecting a number of standard modules each measuring 384mm both in height and width and weighing eight kilograms, the Diamond Vision OLED is scalable and can be designed to flexibly form acertain size or shape, even against rounded surfaces. The screen’s 99mm depth enables it to be installed in limited spaces such as narrow paths and station concourses.The product’s OLED device, jointly developed between Mitsubishi Electric and Tohoku Pioneer Corporation, creates light by a process of electro-luminescence (EL). Each pixel consists of an anode and cathode separated by a thin, organic membrane.Mitsubishi Electric’s Diamond Vision OLED will be showcased at the company’s booth at CEATEC JAPAN 2010, scheduled to be held from October 5-9 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.BackgroundDigital signage systems have recently become widely used around the world to show timely information and advertisements in shopping malls, passenger terminals and public facilities. The installation of such systems must increasingly take into account a variety of spacial and physical limitations and restrictions, as well as excessive natural light conditions. As a result, there is an increasing demand for scalable displays that can flexibly be formed into the required shapes and sizes while maintaining a high level of picture quality andvisibility.At CEATEC JAPAN 2009, Mitsubishi Electric unveiled the world’s first prototype model of a large-scale OLED display with a 155-inch screen, developed through utilizing the company’s large-scale displaytechnology accumulated from the development of Diamond Vision screens installed at numerous sports stadiums and other public facilities.Specifications of Diamond Vision OLED Standard ModuleStandard Module size: H 384mm × W 384mm × D 99mmNumber of pixels / module: H 128 pixels ×W 128 pixelsDisplay device: Organic Light Emitting Diode [R(Red), G(Green), B(Blue)]Pixel pitch: Approximately 3mmPixel density: 111,111 pixels / m2Max. brightness (brightness adjustment): 1,200 cd / m2 (64 steps)Viewing angle: ±80 degrees (Horizontal and Vertical)Gray scale: Each color has 16,384 gradationsMin. viewing distance: More than 2 metersOperating conditions: Indoor use, 0 to 35 degrees C, 0 to 95% (without condensation)Power supply conditions: 3phases 4wires+N 380-415VAC 50/60 Hzor 3phases 3wires 200VAC 50/60 HzAbout Mitsubishi ElectricWith over 85 years of experience in providing reliable, high-quality products to both corporate clients and general consumers all over the world, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) is a recognizedworld leader in the manufacture, marketing and sales of electrical and electronic equipment used in information processing and communications, space development and satellite communications, consumer electronics, industrial technology, energy, transportation and building equipment.
