Mitsubishi Announces New 42-Inch WXGA LCD Monitor for Commercial Video Display

Business Editors/High-Tech Writers IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 1, 2007--Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division, known for award-winning, high-quality presentation and display products, today introduced its newest LCD digital signage monitor, the LDT421V (42" diagonal). With WXGA resolution (1366 x 768 pixels), the LDT421V is designed for high-impact, high-detail video displays and moving text in retail environments, movie theaters, information kiosks and other commercial and public display venues.

With a high brightness rating of 500 cd/m2, the LDT421V works perfectly in store windows, storefronts or any venue where bright ambient light can cast a reflective glare on the monitor surface and diminish the display itself. With the matte surface of Mitsubishi's LDT series of monitors, the video displays can be seen through windows with minimal glare, and LCD technology provides the depth and detail necessary for even the most demanding video environments.

"Our new 42-inch model complements our line of LCD monitors," said Frank Anzures, product manager, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "Anyone who wants to show large, vibrant and clear images in a commercial environment should consider it as the solution of choice."

The LDT421V has a full range of professional AV connectivity for maximum integration flexibility and its own scheduling controls for easy planning of on/off operation, presentation timing, image changeovers and more. Accessing menus and control information through the RS232c connector is easy and efficient. Mitsubishi's monitors can also be networked using third-party solutions.

Like Mitsubishi's award-winning line of projectors, the new LCD monitor offers proprietary color adjustment for precise color control and perfect color reproduction.

"Our dealers have been asking for a larger screen size, viable enough to replace outdated plasma screens in applications where LCD digital signage monitors are more suitable," said James Chan, director, product marketing, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America's Presentation Products Division. "With the LDT421V, our dealers can now offer their customers a better option for more digital signage and public display venues."

Pricing, Availability, Warranty

The LDT421V is available in May for a suggested price of $3,995 through authorized Mitsubishi dealers. The monitor is covered by Mitsubishi's new MEMO (Mitsubishi Express Monitor Onsite Service) Warranty Program, a limited warranty that brings extended service hours, longer LCD panel warranty coverage and onsite services and repairs to its large-screen digital signage LCD monitor line. The program features a dedicated toll-free 24/7 technical support line (888-593-9037) with reliable and knowledgeable US-based technical support reps for set-up help, problem-solving and troubleshooting.
