Cowboys Go With DiamondVision Scoreboards

4/17/2008 04:28:00 PM Eastern

Warrendale, Pa. – Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision Systems has been selected by the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys to install what it calls “the world’s largest LED high-definition video displays” for a scoreboard at the team’s new stadium, which is scheduled to open in 2009.

The deal will also include the installation of LED fascia ribbon boards and scoring display systems.

Mitsubishi said the one-of-a-kind, four-sided scoreboard will feature the world’s largest LED high-definition (1080p) video displays. The center-hung structure consists of four Diamond Vision video displays, with the two main sideline displays measuring 72-feet high by 160-feet wide and two Diamond Vision end-zone displays measuring 29-feet high by 51-feet wide.

It will be suspended 110 feet directly over the center of the playing surface and stretch from one 20-yard line to the other.

“When we were making the decision on whom to entrust with the responsibility of making our vision a reality, the quality and clarity in the Mitsubishi Diamond Vision boards was unmatched,” stated Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager.

The Cowboys said the new displays will be designed to allow fans on any level of the stadium to easily view the action, and will help to increase the value of the upper-level seating. The displays will include Mitsubishi Electric’s exclusive 20-mm pixel pitch technology, which is said to produce bright, clear images from any angle.

Mitsubishi Electric will also install nearly three-quarters of a mile of its signature Diamond Vision LEDerAd fascia. More than 3,600 linear feet of these ribbon displays will ring the stadium.

The Cowboys selection follows a similar recent selection of a Mitsubishi HD LED display for the scoreboard in the new

, which is also scheduled to open in 2009.
