Mitsubishi Electric Installs Diamond Vision Displays at Saitama Stadium 2002

Japan's largest displays in soccer stadium to be unveiled at J1 match on March 9

TOKYO, March 6, 2013 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has completed installation of two 1,011-inch Diamond Vision displays at Saitama Stadium 2002 in the suburbs north of Tokyo. The Diamond Vision displays, the largest in any soccer stadium in Japan, will be unveiled at a J. League Division 1 soccer match between the Urawa Red Diamonds and Nagoya Grampus on March 9.

The north and south sides of the stadium each have a Diamond Vision display measuring 23 m x 10 m, or 20 percent larger than the previous display. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) aligned vertically and horizontally in an 8mm dot pitch enable video with exceptional Full HD clarity, yet they consume 35 percent less energy than the previous display.

The new Diamond Vision displays combine excellent reliability with breathtaking visual effects. Each display has its own game-data equipment to ensure continuity in the rare case of one unit's failure. Dual displays also enable information to be presented more flexibly, such as in Japanese on one screen and in English on the other for international matches. Redundant time-keeping features assure highly reliable time management. Enhanced visual effects will be added once the displays are synchronized with the ribbon boards in March 2014.

As an added feature, the operation console for all signage is highly simplified and easy to use, enabling non-technical personnel to operate the signage for non-professional soccer tournaments and other events.

Mitsubishi Electric has installed more than 1,700 Diamond Vision displays worldwide since the world's first large, full-color system was completed at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles in 1980. Going forward, Mitsubishi Electric will continue to expand its business with large displays for public stadia and other sports facilities.
