Mitsubishi Electric to Install Diamond Vision Screens at Sapporo Dome

Highest resolution among all 12 stadiums in Japanese professional baseball

TOKYO, June 24, 2014 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will receive an order from Sapporo Dome Co., Ltd. to install three Diamond Vision screens, one large unit each above the right- and left-field stands and one infield scoreboard, at the Sapporo Dome baseball/soccer stadium in Sapporo, Japan. The screens will be 2.9 times larger, boast five times the resolution and offer 1.5 times contrast of the replaced screens thanks to Mitsubishi Electric's exclusive black plastic-molded LEDs. The screens will be fully operative for the baseball season starting in March 2015.

The two large screens each will measure 8.64 m by 32.0 m, about 1.6 times larger than the current screen in right field. The infield scoreboard will be 3.84 m by 13.12 m, or about 1.5 times larger than the current model. Use of LEDs with an 8 mm pixel pitch will ensure excellent visibility. Mitsubishi Electric's own black-packaged LEDs will be used for the first time in a baseball or soccer stadium in Japan. These advanced LEDs lower luminescence in darker lighting and raise contrast in brighter lighting for improved visibility.
