The two 98 square metre screens overlook opposite ends of the stadium and have already been used at several music and sporting events already.
Working with local long-term partner and AV integrator, Shadok Audio-Visual, Mitsubishi supplied the two 12.8 x 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/m², delivering visible images in all lighting conditions.
The screens are driven by Mitsubishi’s latest 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.
