Widely used across Europe, Mitsubishi Electric’s 12mm OD12 screen has proved an extremely popular all-round screen technology in both modular rental format and fixed installation. Delivered just one week before its appearance in London, Massteknik’s new Diamond Vision screen has already appeared at the GP Live racing at Donington Park, horse racing at Goodwood and several other high-profile public events as far apart as London and Gothenburg.Massteknik operates 14 mobile screens around Europe, providing systems for a wide variety of prestigious events such as the Formula One Grand Prix, various motor shows, television shows, film festivals and concerts.

Christopher Milnes, managing director of Massteknik UK, commented, “We are delighted with the new Diamond Vision system. It has performed extremely well at today’s event. Diamond Vision has an excellent reputation for quality and reliability, and the OD12 in particular is a very versatile screen, which is obviously an important quality to have in a rental system.” Commenting on their choice of Diamond Vision, Christopher continued, “As well as it’s excellent image quality and contrast, we were especially impressed with Diamond Vision’s long-term performance: Being a tried and tested technology, we can have a great deal of confidence that screen uniformity and light output will remain good over a long period of time. A system like this is a significant investment, so build quality and longevity are very important factors in our ability to generate a return on that investment.”
