Mitsubishi Electric Outfits Japanese Soccer Stadium with LED Display

Mitsubishi Electric has completed installation of a Diamond Vision large-scale LED display system at KKWING in Kumamoto City, Japan. The new 600-inch screen replaced the previous electric discharge tube screen installed 10 years ago, providing brighter and higher resolution live videos for the visitors of the Kumamoto Prefecture’s multiple-use athletics stadium and also one of the main home stadiums for the J2 soccer team Roasso Kumamoto.

Incorporating high-luminance LEDs aligned vertically and horizontally in a 12.5-millimeter dot pitch and the latest digital screen controllers, the new 13.2 meter × 7.6 meter screen is able to display HD video content. It will also cut down on energy consumption by 80 percent compared to the previous screen.

Mitsubishi Electric has installed numerous other Diamond Vision displays at soccer fields in Japan in the past years, including a 378-inch display at Yamaha Stadium in July 2002, a 460-inch display at Fukuda Denshi Arena in September 2005, and a 491-inch display at NACK5 Stadium in September 2007
