Mitsubishi makes all sorts of electronics and hardware that it sells to consumers and to other manufacturers who use Mitsubishi components in their own computers and displays. The LCD arm of the electronics giant called Mitsubishi Electric has announced its new 19.2-inch TFT-LCD module that has a strange aspect ratio.
Typical LCDs have aspect ratios of 4:3 or 16:9 on most computers and notebooks with some large screens providing a 16:10 aspect ratio. The new Mitsubishi AA192AA01 TFT-LCD module has an aspect ratio of 16:3. The company says the odd aspect ratio is designed for use in kiosks, information monitors, and gaming systems.
The screen measures 496.5mm W x 109.2mm H and has a native resolution of 1920 x 360. The module is backlit with white LEDs and has a luminance rating of 500 cd/m2. The contrast ratio for the LCD is 700:1 and the pixel pitch is 0.249. The screen supports up to 16.77M colors in 8-bit mode. Mitsubishi will ship the screen on April 1 in Europe and Asia at a price of 80,000 yen in Japan.
