Diamond Vision (known as Aurora Vision in Japan) displays are large-scale video screens for indoor and outdoor sports venues and commercial applications, produced by the Mitsubishi Electric Corporation. Diamond Vision Systems is a division of Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, Inc. and is headquartered in Warrendale, Pennsylvania, where certain products are designed and assembled for the North American market.

Diamond Vision video screens incorporate technologies developed by Mitsubishi Electric. For wide viewing angles, Diamond Vision screens utilize chip-type LEDs.[1] Mitsubishi Electric also uses patented processing technology in Diamond Vision boards for imagery and color reproduction.

Diamond Vision's awards include an Emmy Award[2] and the Best in Sports Technology award from the Sports Business Journal–Sports Business Daily.[3] In addition, Diamond Vision installations have been recognized five times by Guinness World Records.[4]

Diamond Vision Systems is the Official Large Outdoor Video Display Provider of the PGA Tour.[5]
