Daktronics delivers new display for Rocket City Trash Pandas

Video board manufacturer Daktronics has teamed up with the City of Madison, Alabama and the Rocket City Trash Pandas Minor League Baseball team to fit a new LED display at Toyota Field.

The display will be based in left field at the 7,000-seat stadium, which is ready to open after construction work recently finished. The display will feature 1,600 square feet of digital space, measuring 25 feet high by 65 feet wide.

The screen features a 15HD pixel layout, which will deliver high-standard image clarity and contrast to fans throughout the stadium. The display also features industry-leading environmental protection to ensure it can operate in all weather.

Additionally, the display will be capable of variable content zoning, which will allow it to show one large image or multiple zones of content including any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

The Rocket City Trash Pandas is a newly-formed Minor League Baseball team, which will debut in the 2020 season. The Pandas will serve as the Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels Major League Baseball franchise.

Daktronics sales representative Glen Marts said: “We’re thrilled to be a part of professional baseball returning to northern Alabama. This is an exciting project for our company and we’re looking forward to seeing the new technology making an impact on fans for years to come.”

Daktronics will also include its Show Control solution with the installation. The system provides a combination of display control software, video processing, data integration and playback hardware.
