Mitsubishi Completes Installation of Main Diamond Vision Screen at Hakodate Racecourse

Mitsubishi Electric announced today that it has completed installation of a 17m x 7m Diamond Vision screen as the main display system at Hakodate Racecourse, operated by the Japan Racing Association (JRA) in Hakodate, Hokkaido. The main display features high-luminance light-emitting diodes (LEDs) aligned in a 10 mm dot pitch. The split-screen display can simultaneously showcase two screens of content, such as live footage of a race or the paddock on one screen and race odds and other data on the other.

The display will begin operating on June 19, 2010, when Hakodate Racecourse will celebrate the grand
opening of a new stand on which construction began in 2008. The display will replace the old facility’s CRT
main display, also built and installed by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation in 1996.
