The Indianapolis Indians have added an extra dimension to the gameday experience at Victory Field this year. Daktronics Inc. of Brookings, S.D., provided a LED (light emitting diode) video display incorporated into the outfield fence in left field.
“The Indianapolis Indians are constantly seeking ways to improve the entertainment package we present to our fans at Victory Field and our new LED board in left field provides us with a new opportunity to do that,” said Cal Burleson, Vice President & General Manager. “Our new video board allows our scoreboard information to be displayed in a state-of-the-art form and lets our corporate partners have their messages presented in a vivid and striking manner.”
At nearly 120 feet wide and featuring Daktronics industry-leading HD-X video technology, this unique LED fence display offers additional information and entertainment to fans. Daktronics LED fence displays provide full-color crowd prompts, advertisements, up-to-the-minute scores and statistics and video clips on an impact-resistant screen.
The new fence display is one of only a handful in minor league baseball and rivals that of most displays in Major League Baseball ballparks. With Daktronics powerful and complete control package, the new fence display will integrate seamlessly with existing Daktronics video and scoring displays to provide a dynamic informational network to Victory Field.
Included as part of the project is Daktronics video image processing technologies and the new Show Control system. The company’s video processing system is touted by experts as the best in the industry, processing and scaling live and recorded video signal to vivid digital imagery on large displays. The Show Control system is the one of the latest developments from Daktronics, providing a power combination of control software, data integration, and playback hardware that forms a comprehensive production solution.
