We have some more details on the new high-def videoboard to be installed this season at Werner Park, home of the Omaha Storm Chasers (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League).
The installation from Daktronics gives the the Storm Chasers a state-of-the-art new display that will feature a 13HD pixel layout, a technology that will be featured by only select MLB teams this year. It will measure approximately 25 feet high by 45.5 feet wide, for a more than 50 percent increase in size over the previous display. It will provide excellent image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility to appeal to every seat in the stadium while also incorporating industry-leading environmental protection.
“We are excited to be investing in our new state-of-the-art video board from Daktronics. To be able to deliver this on the heels of Back-to-Back Triple-A National Championships, and leading into the First National Bank 2015 All Star Game this July, is fantastic,” said Gary Green, Storm Chasers owner and CEO. “Werner Park will continue to be viewed as a premier venue and we are looking forward to our fans enjoying their in-game experience even more thanks to Daktronics.”
The display will feature variable content zoning, which allows it to show one large image across the entire display or it can also be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information, statistics, graphics, animations and sponsor messages. The Storm Chasers will add six new high-definition cameras and a NewTek TriCaster to accompany the new video display.
“Daktronics is excited to partner with the Omaha Storm Chasers and Sarpy County on this exciting new video display upgrade for Werner Park,” said Matt Warnke, Daktronics Sales Representative. “This new display will provide fans unbelievable image quality while offering the Storm Chasers great flexibility in how they promote their partners as well as adding to an already exciting game-day atmosphere.”
