The worldâ€™s first four-sided, center-hung, high-definition video display in a stadium consists of four Diamond VisionÂ® LED video screens, with the two main sideline displays measuring 72 feet high by 160 feet wide, and two Diamond VisionÂ® end-zone displays measuring 29 feet high by 51 feet wide. Weighing 600 tons, the screens are suspended 90 feet directly over the center of the playing surface and stretch from nearly one 20-yard line to the other. With a total viewing area of 11,393 square-feet, the Diamond VisionÂ® display is equal to 3,268 52-inch televisions, and has 10,584,064 LED lights.
Mitsubishi Electric has now been recognized by Guinness World Records four times for its accomplishments, and the Cowboysâ€™ board is the third Diamond VisionÂ® screen to be honored by Guinness. In March 2005, GWR recognized the Diamond VisionÂ® LED display at Turner Field in Atlanta as the Worldâ€™s Largest High-Definition Television Screen, and in September 2005 the Mitsubishi Electric video board at the Japan Racing Association Tokyo Racecourse was certified as the Worldâ€™s Largest Television Display. In 1993, Mitsubishi Electric was recognized for designing and installing the worldâ€™s fastest elevator â€” capable of traveling 750 meters per minute (approximately 28 miles per hour) â€” at the Landmark Tower in Yokohama, Japan.
