The 5,600-sq-ft Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision screen, which will be recognized by Guinness World Records at a special ceremony on March 23, 2005, is 71-ft tall and 79-ft wide, weighs 50 tons, and has more than 5 million light emitting diode (LED) lights.
The new display consists of 266 panels that each contain 20 lighting units, resulting in a screen with nearly 5,200,000 LED modules that can reproduce 1 billion colors and be clearly seen from almost any viewing angle.
The screen, which will be cooled by 10 fans that move 60,000 cu ft of air per minute, can be accessed for service via a nine-tiered catwalk behind the display.
The centerfield display of Turner Field (Atlanta, GA, U.S.) is one of two new Diamond Vision displays being installed at Turner Field; a 16- by 28-ft, 446-sq-ft display is being installed in the plaza area of the ballpark. Both will be controlled from a new control room that features four 30-in and two 40-in Mitsubishi LCD monitors. Mitsubishi Electric has installed more than 100 Diamond Vision screens for sports, entertainment, and advertising use in premier venues across the U.S.
