Mitsubishi Electric Corporation revealed that the company’s Diamond Vision series of outdoor large-scale colour display systems has received the prestigious IEEE Milestone award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Diamond Vision is Mitsubishi Electric’s series of proprietary displays, of which more than 2,000 have been installed globally since the first unit was introduced at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, USA in 1980. The award recognises the prominent role and high esteem of Diamond Vision as the world’s first outdoor large-scale colour display systems for creating impressive video images.
Masaki Sakuyama, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Electric, said, “We are deeply honoured to receive the IEEE Milestone for Diamond Vision. This is the first time our company has received this honour exclusively and it also represents the first IEEE Milestone to be received by a company in the Kyushu region of Japan. We are proud that Diamond Vision has continued to deliver highly impressive video images to spectators around the world for more than 35 years. We will continue to challenge ourselves to develop other useful technologies that truly enrich people’s lives.”
