The Rome Braves (Low A; Sally League) are installing a new videoboard at State Mutual Stadium, with the new display to be added to the ballpark in time for the 2020 season.
In addition to the new, primary display in left field, the Rome Braves also announced upgrades to the existing Go Braves board along with the matrix board near the entrance of Braves Boulevard.
At 48 feet wide by 26.4 feet high (1,267.2 square feet), the new Daktronics 15HD video display will be approximately four times larger than the previous primary video board and will complement the existing Miller Lite Marina video board down the left field line. The smaller, right-field Go Braves board will also be upgraded and reconfigured to provide full LED video display capabilities along with a Daktronics Galaxy Display within the pylon at the main entrance and intersection of Braves Boulevard and Veterans Memorial Highway.
The new display upgrades are the largest capital expense improvement since the construction of State Mutual Stadium and its inaugural season in 2003. With this project, the control room and equipment will also be updated to full HD. With the exception of the Miller Lite Marina board which was installed in 2017, all controls and video boards were previously standard definition.
The new board’s display resolution will be 960 pixels wide by 528 pixels high.
