No Jumbotron at Super Bowl XLV
WARRENDALE, Pa--(LadyDragon.com)04/02/11--Guinness World Record Diamond Vision Displays Make Super Bowl Debut.
Members of the sports and news media are amiably reminded that there is no Jumbotron™ at Cowboys Stadium. The record-setting display is a Diamond Vision™ display produced by Mitsubishi Electric Power Products of Warrendale, Penn., near Pittsburgh.
The four-sided, center-hung structure, a first for an NFL stadium, consists of four video boards, with the two main sideline displays measuring 72 feet high by 160 feet wide, and two end-zone displays measuring 29 feet high by 51 feet wide. Weighing 600 tons, the screens are suspended 90 feet over the center of the playing surface and stretch from nearly one 20-yard line to the other. (More details below.)
In 2009, it was recognized by Guinness World Records as the Worlds Largest High-Definition Video Display.
Completing the array of Diamond Vision displays are four, 280 square-foot screens on the lower concourse and an upper level fascia (ribbon) display measuring four feet high by nearly 2,000 linear feet.
The Cowboys Stadiums Diamond Vision LEDerAd™ ribbon boards are powered by ANC Sports Enterprises VisionSOFT operating system.
