Mitsubishi Electric Display Walls meet the demanding needs of today’s modern traffic management center with the introduction of the VS-60HS12U slim-depth rear-projection cubes that not only occupies about half the foot print of conventional rear-projection displays at only 20” deep, but are also amazingly budget-friendly. Unlike LCD panels, the Mitsubishi Slim Cubes are designed to operate and run 24/7 with no screen degradation, thus minimal or no downtime, making its cost of operations and ownership more efficient than LCD panels. With each 60” diagonal display cube with full-HD resolution, Mitsubishi slim cubes with virtually seamless bezels let you configure your display wall to meet your display and visualization requirement exactly.
