Staten Island Yankees Add Daktronics Video Display at Richmond County Bank Ballpark
The Staten Island Yankees and Richmond County Bank Ballpark brought in Daktronics to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display for left field at their venue in Staten Island, New York. The display was recently installed and is currently being used to entertain Yankees fans at baseball events this summer.
“Daktronics was honest and helpful throughout every step of this process,” said Will Smith, team president and operating partner. “The new screen includes the appropriate operating software, data and support. Peter Dunkle was, and still is, a dedicated representative of the company and a detailed guide. I always felt he represented our best interests. This product was much needed for Richmond County Bank Ballpark, and we look forward to this new partnership with Daktronics that will hopefully include additional displays in the future.”
The new screen measures 27.5 feet high by 38.5 feet wide for a total of approximately 1,060 square feet of video display space. It features a 15HD pixel layout to provide crisp, clear images with wide angle visibility to appeal to every fan in the stadium.
The display is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replay, statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
“We’re proud to provide the Staten Island Yankees with this new video display and front-end video system,” said Peter Dunkle, Daktronics sales representative. “It is a significant addition to one of the prettiest ballparks you can find, Richmond County Bank Ballpark. The screen adds a whole new dimension for the fans and will be an integral part of the exciting game-day experience.”
Elon University Receiving Video Display Upgrades From Daktronics
Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota, was asked by Elon University of Elon, North Carolina, to design, manufacture and install a total of five LED displays for Rhodes Stadium. The displays are currently being installed and will be ready to entertain Phoenix fans for the upcoming season this fall.
“We are confident this upgrade at Rhodes Stadium will significantly improve the fan experience at Elon football games,” said Elon Director of Athletics Dave Blank. “This project would not be possible without IMG and we are thrilled to once again work with Daktronics, an industry leader. This improvement will provide Elon fans with a tremendous in-game experience for many years to come.”
The new main video display measures approximately 21 feet high by 38 feet wide with a 15HD pixel layout. It provides excellent image clarity and contrast while incorporating industry-leading environmental protection. This display features variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image across the entire display or to be separated into multiple zones that can show combinations of live video, instant replays, scoring and statistic information, animations, and advertisements.
A total of four new ribbon displays are also being installed at Rhodes Stadium. Two of these are connected to the main display and measure 4 feet high by 8 feet wide. The other two will be installed on the brick surrounding the stadium and measure 4 feet high by 19 feet wide. All of these displays will have a 15HD pixel layout and show content such as up-to-the-minute statistics and game information while also providing the opportunity to highlight sponsors throughout events.
A Sportsound 2000 audio system, which will be integrated with the video and scoring system, will also be added to the stadium. The system provides full-range sound reproduction and delivers clear and intelligible speech. It will provide a powerful audio experience for years to come.
“We’re excited to build upon our long-standing relationship with Elon University,” said Corey Williams, Daktronics Sales Representative. “These new displays and sound system will help take the game-day experience at Rhodes Stadium to another level for Phoenix supporters.”
In addition to the equipment installation, the university will also receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services. This content will consist of any mixture of sponsorship messages, crowd prompts, headshots, game opens and venue announcements at the request of the school.
