By Opening Day. the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers (Low A; Midwest League) will have a new videoboard at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.
The new video board at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium is an Outdoor Daktronics LED Video Display with a screen size measuring 26.5′ high by 55′ wide. By comparison, the video board that is being replaced has a screen size of 16′ high by 35′ wide.
“Our goal each season is to upgrade the overall fan experience and this new video display will surely provide a wow factor to all in attendance,” said Wisconsin Timber Rattlers president Rob Zerjav. “The new video board will be roughly three times larger in screen size than our previous board and, in conjunction with upgrading all cameras to HD, will allow for a crisper picture and greater functionality.”
The 15HD Pixel layout of the new video board will make for excellent image clarity and contrast to allow for great visibility to any seat in the stadium. There is also a feature that will allow for the board to show one large image or be divided into multiple zones to show graphics, animations, sponsorship messages, live video, and updated statistics.
Additionally, there will be a new video display on Casaloma Drive to greet fans as they enter the parking lot as well as a new video display above the ticket windows. The display on Casaloma Drive will measure 4′ high by 9.5′ wide. The display above the ticket windows will be 14″ high by 19′ wide.
“It’s always exciting to continue a relationship that spans a number of years with this new installation for the Timber Rattlers,” said Joey Hulsebus, Daktronics sales representative. “The team has been a trend setter with their technology and video displays while consistently engaging their fans at every game. We’re looking forward to seeing the final installation later this spring.”
Installation of the main video board will begin in Mid-March and all new displays will be completed before the season begins.
The Timber Rattlers will begin the 2018 season at Beloit on Thursday, April 5. Wisconsin’s home opener is Saturday, April 7 at 4:05pm against the Beloit Snappers.
