Mitsubishi Electric Installs Diamond Vision Screen at Japan’s Hiratsuka Stadium

Mitsubishi Electric has completed installation of a 800-inch Diamond Vision large-scale display system at Hiratsuka Stadium in Hiratsuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The new screen is the first large-scale LED screen installed at Hiratsuka City’s multi-use athletics stadium, also the home stadium of J. League Division 1 soccer club Shonan Bellmare.

The 17.76 meter by 9.84 meter screen incorporates high-luminance LEDs aligned vertically and horizontally in a 15-millimeter dot pitch and the latest digital screen controllers, and is able to display HD video content. The screen, installed on the stadium’s south side, will display textual and graphic information as well as live videos and slow-motion replays. The screen system is compatible with personal computers, allowing data on sporting events to be displayed on screen.

Built in 1987 inside the grounds of Hiratsuka City’s comprehensive park, Hiratsuka Stadium is a category-2 track and field facility, authorized by the Japan Association of Athletics Federations to hold J. League and other soccer games as well as national track and field competitions.
