Daktronics Inc. recently installed a large-screen LED (light emitting diode) video upgrade to Digital Domain Park, home of the St. Lucie Mets. The new video display measures over three times larger than the previous video display and features the latest in LED technology.
“The new video board offers great clarity and more options to enhance the in-game experience,” said Paul Taglieri, Director of Florida Operations/General Manager. “The video board has immediately enhanced the fans’ experience, they can’t stop talking about the new display.”
Measuring approximately 20 feet high by 35 feet wide, the new video board offers superb clarity and contrast of video images, providing excellent viewing angles throughout the stadium. The video board can operate as an independent display showing single large images or be divided into multiple zones (windows) to show a wide variety of statistics, information, graphics, animation and live and recorded video. The board can also be used in a variety of ways to recognize and activate sponsors.
The new video board will integrate seamlessly with existing Daktronics scoreboard and message display equipment in the current outfield structure.
Also included in the project is Daktronics new Show Control system. The company’s LED video processing system is touted as the best in the industry, processing and scaling live and recorded video signal to vivid digital imagery on large LED displays. The Show Control system is one of the latest developments from Daktronics, providing a power combination of control software, data integration, and playback hardware.
