Details have been released on a Daktronics videoboard installed at a new ballpark that will open for the Fayetteville Woodpeckers (High A; Carolina League) in April. The installation took place late in the fall of 2018 to be ready for the 2019 baseball season.
“Our stadium experience will extend well beyond baseball,” said Fayetteville Woodpeckers President Mark Zarthar. “The Woodpeckers are committed to providing a unique, high-energy and high-quality occasion for our fans. Technology is a major component of that experience. Daktronics is the industry leader in outfitting entertainment venues with state-of-the-art displays. The dimensions of our LED video board are unprecedented for a stadium this size and will elevate a minor league park to a world-class entertainment venue.”
The video board measures approximately 25 feet high by 70 feet wide to bring a larger-than-life experience to Woodpecker fans. It features a 15HD pixel layout to create vibrant imagery with wide angle visibility to appeal to fans in every seat of the ballpark.
The display is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or multiple windows of digital content. It can show live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations. It can also help highlight Woodpecker sponsors throughout every game and other special events.
“The new Fayetteville minor league ballpark is going to be a great new facility and we’re excited to be a part of the project,” said Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. “The video board will provide Woodpecker fans with years of entertainment and we can’t wait to see it fired up in time for the first season.”
Daktronics show control system was included with the installation to provide a powerful, easy-to-use solution for operating the display to provide a desirable and engaging game-day experience for fans.
