Stadium success for Mitsubishi ElectricOne of a pair of Mitsubishi Electric ODX8 screens recently installed in Stadion Wroclaw, Poland
Poland - Mitsubishi Electric has commissioned a major stadium screen installation for the newly-opened Wroclaw Stadium in south west Poland. The 42,771 capacity stadium will be the main venue for the UEFA Euro 2012 soccer tournament as well as an impressive range of other major cultural, entertainment and sporting events planned for the coming year. The two 98sq.m screens overlook opposite ends of the stadium and have already been used successfully at several high profile music and sporting events.

Working closely with local long-term partner and AV integrator, Shadok Audio-Visual, Mitsubishi supplied the two 12.8m by 7.68m screens, consisting of its recently introduced Diamond Vision ODX8 LED screen modules. Each 15:9 aspect ratio screen offers a native resolution of 1600 by 960 pixels at 6000 cd/sq.m, delivering extremely high-quality images in all lighting conditions.

The screens are driven by Mitsubishi's latest and most advanced digital display controller, the XDC-6000. The controllers feature Mitsubishi's dynamic gamma correction technology and MPEG noise reduction to enhance the contrast and clarity of the image. The XDC-6000s unique interlace to progressive scan conversion algorithm significantly reduces artifacts from the fast-moving content often encountered at sporting events. In conjunction with Mitsubishi's Natural Colour Matrix colour space control, these features deliver a screen performance of startling quality.

Mitsubishi's Diamond Vision ODX8 screen is the latest offering in the Diamond Vision range, designed in response to an increasingly competitive global market for LED screens. "A new 8mm pitch vertical delta LED configuration together with other enhancements has enabled Mitsubishi to balance excellent performance and long-term reliability with very competitive pricing - factors which have helped it secure several more major stadium projects, including further landmark installations currently underway in Europe and the USA," says the company.
