Mitsubishi Electric Installs Diamond Vision Screen at Japan’s Toda Boat Racecourse

Mitsubishi Electric has completed installation of a Diamond Vision large-scale display system at the Boat Racing Association’s Toda Boat Racecourse in Toda City, Saitama Prefecture, Japan. The new screen will officially be illuminated on March 26, the 53rd anniversary of the Toda Gran Prix race.

Incorporating high-luminance LEDs aligned vertically and horizontally in a 10mm-dot pitch (see specifications below) and the latest digital screen controllers, the new screen is able to display HD video content while retaining the 15m (w) x 9m (h) size of the previous screen. The display system is installed facing the main stand across the racing surface, and will display a variety of programs such as race playbacks, contestant profiles and gaming information in conjunction with another, adjacent 15m (w) x 9m (h) Diamond Vision screen installed by Mitsubishi Electric in 2001.

The new screen, which forms part of the revamped visual information system launched in 2007, will replace the facility’s current, main CRT display, built and installed by Mitsubishi Electric in 1996.
