Kleenex Stadium Miyagi Adds Mammoth Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision Display

Rakuten Baseball has completed installation of a Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision large-scale display system at Kleenex Stadium Miyagi above the stands between right and center field.

The Diamond Vision screen, which measures 20.6 meters by 16.3 meters with a total surface area of 336.8 square meters, is the largest outdoor screen among baseball stadiums in Japan. Incorporating LEDs aligned in a 15mm dot pitch, the screen is able to display HD video content.

Rakuten Baseball was the first Japanese baseball organization to introduce ribbon vision in a stadium in 2007, and T-LED, a T-shaped screen installed behind home plate, in 2009. Both screens were manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation.

The Diamond Vision screen will debut with the Tohoku Rakuten Eagles’ home opener scheduled for March 27 this year, complementing the existing scoreboard, ribbon vision and T-LED displays.
