Irvine-based Mitsubishi Electric last Thursday received an Emmy for its Electric Diamond Vision Systems at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Mitsubishi won in the Pioneering Development of Large-Venue, Large-Screen Direct View Color Video Displays category.

“Mitsubishi Electric is honored to be recognized by the Academy for our decades of leadership in large-screen display technology,” said Mark Foster, general manager of Mitsubishi Electric Power Products’ Diamond Vision Systems division.

Fenway Park, Yankee Stadium and the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas are all home to the Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision displays. Such success has enabled Mitsubishi to bring the same technology it uses for stadium and arena displays into its home theater products, such as its 3D HDTVs and projectors.

The Diamond Vision display has been the recipient of other honors, such as the Sports Business Journal’s 2010 “Best in Sports Technology” award, and it was featured in the “Guinness Book of Records” for its high-definition video displays at football stadiums.

“The National Academy’s Engineering Achievement Committee is pleased to honor technology companies that have set the standard for much of what we do in broadcast television and to those that continue to broaden what is possible in bringing home to the viewer the best that television has to offer,” said Robert P. Seidel, vice president of CBS Engineering and Advanced Technology.
