When Las Vegas Ballpark opens for the Las Vegas Aviators (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) this spring, it will feature the largest Daktronics LED videoboard in the minor leagues.
At 3,930 square feet, the new outfield display (construction photo above) is the largest Daktronics has installed in baseball’s minor leagues and is top 25 in size for baseball in North America. It features a 13HD pixel layout and measures approximately 31 feet high by 126 feet wide. The ballpark’s construction team – a joint venture of AECOM Hunt and PENTA Building Group – installed the new display in late 2018.
The display is capable of variable content zoning, allowing it to show one large image or be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of dynamic content.
“Pairing the largest Daktronics LED video display in the minor leagues with the new Las Vegas Ballpark will blow fans away,” said Rusty Lenners, Daktronics sales representative. “We’re grateful to be working with The Howard Hughes Corporation, the Las Vegas Aviators and AECOM Hunt-Penta on this first-class project. This partnership has resulted in an installation that will excite and engage fans for years to come.”
According to Don Logan, president and chief operations officer of the Las Vegas Aviators, the new display is an exciting addition to Las Vegas Ballpark. “Although the team has been in Las Vegas for 37 years, this upcoming season is the start of a new chapter for the Aviators, with a new name, a new stadium and a new affiliation,” said Logan. “It doesn’t get better than that.”
Included in this project are two ribbon displays measuring 3.5 feet high by 90 feet wide. Each features a 15HD pixel layout, providing the opportunity to display supplemental game-day information, and to highlight sponsors throughout events.
In addition, a gate entry display measuring 3.5 feet high by 41 feet wide, and featuring a 13HD pixel layout, welcomes fans to the Las Vegas Ballpark with branding and promotional messages.
