Mitsubishi Electric has announced the launch of its three new TFT-LCD modules. Mitsubishi claims that the display would be suitable not just for automobiles but also as industrial equipment in ships and construction and agricultural machinery that require large screens combined with high performance and superior quality.

Mitsubishi has revealed that sales will begin July 16 through Mitsubishi Electric offices worldwide. The new models will be exhibited at Society for Information Display (SID) Display Week in the U.S. city of San Jose, California from May 14 to 16. The modules would come in 10.25, 12.3 and 15-inch dimensions.

Mitsubishi has confirmed that in addition to rear mounting, the models' wide 8:3 aspect ratio can accommodate display elements including instrument cluster, center panel and side-camera screen, ideal for space-limited car interiors. Mitsubishi claims that the high-resolution screens of 1,920 (H) x 720 (V) are capable of displaying dense information with superb clarity (10.25-inch: 200ppi, 12.3-inch: 167ppi, and 15.0-inch: 137ppi).

It further claims that the wide 176-degree viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical, high brightness of 1,000 cd/sq.m and high contrast ratio of 1,000:1 ensure excellent visibility in bright environments while being able to withstand temperatures ranging from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius.
