PNC Field to go High Definition01/25/2013 2:59 PM ET
Lackawanna County and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees are taking yet another step toward making PNC Field one of the most modern and technologically advanced minor league ballparks in the country.
Lackawanna County and the SWB Yankees announced it will partner with Daktronics, a video board and audio systems company based in Brookings, S.D., to manufacture its video display boards in reconstructed PNC Field. Daktronics will feature its premier 15 HD Video displays throughout PNC Field.
Daktronics 15 HD Technology LED displays are crafted for premier video applications that demand pristine color clarity from all viewing angles. The displays use the finest LEDs and an innovative pixel arrangement to take contrast and color to bold new depths.
All together, PNC Field will feature 2,260-square-feet of HD video - that's the equivalent of 393 47" televisions.
"I've been to many ballparks in Minor League Baseball and few are as technologically advanced as the reconstructed PNC Field," said SWB President and General Manager Rob Crain. "The high definition Daktronics products that will be incorporated into new PNC Field are incredible and we could not be happier with the partnership."
The main scoreboard and video display will include a 26-foot-by-40-foot 15 HD Video Board Display, a 12-foot-by-40-foot LED fixed digit scoreboard, and four advertising panels each measuring 10-feet-by-20-feet.
The outfield wall LED display, located on the right field wall, will feature a 6-foot-by-150-foot 15 HD outfield wall video display.
There will also be two 15 HD LED fascia ribbon boards on the first and third base sides of the ballpark measuring 3-feet-by-40 feet. A total of 14 47-inch flat panel signage displays will be featured throughout the concourse.
Daktronics is a family founded company that has manufactured video displays and equipment since 1968. The company is a pioneer in the video display industry and established itself as the world's leading designer and manufacturer of large-screen video displays.
