We have some more information on the new videoboards and LED displays to be installed by the Oakland Athletics at O.co Coliseum for the 2015 season.
Daktronics is installing two ribbon displays and two outfield video displays featuring 13HD technology, designed with a high level of brightness to cut through direct sunlight while providing crisp, clear imagery.
“These new Daktronics LED videoboards will elevate the O.co Coliseum fan experience to a whole new level,” said Ken Pries, Oakland Athletics vice president of communications and broadcasting. “With Daktronics’ superior customer service and technical expertise, the entire process has been seamless. Our fans are going to be blown away on Opening Night and the final product.”
Featuring a 13HD pixel layout, the two main video displays will each measure 36 feet high by 145 feet wide and incorporate multiple levels of protection from the outdoor elements. Keeping with today’s standards for game-day productions, these display are capable of highlighting one large image for live video and instant replay. They can also be divided into multiple sections to show desired statistical information, graphics and animations, advertising and sponsorship messaging, and other game information.
The two ribbon displays will each measure approximately 3.5 feet high by 415 feet wide and feature 20 millimeter line spacing. These displays will be located on the seating fascia along the first and third baselines of the stadium and can be used to highlight sponsors and provide additional statistical information throughout each event.
“The addition of two large video displays will be a wonderful enhancement to the O.co Coliseum,” said Daktronics Sales Representative Robin Hall. “It is very exciting to work with the Oakland A’s. We are grateful for the opportunity and look forward to working hard to provide them with a quality LED video solution.”
Daktronics will also be including its powerful Show Control System with this installation: a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware.
