New outfield video display, custom audio system for Louisville Bats

Focusing on all aspects of the audiovisual experience at Louisville Slugger Field in Kentucky, the Louisville Bats, Triple-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, have turned to Daktronics to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display and custom audio system this spring.

“We are excited about this upgrade to Louisville Slugger Field that will bring Bats fans the latest in LED technology and a high-definition video to our Pepsi Vision video board,” said Louisville Bats vice president of stadium operations Scott Shoemaker.

“We are also thrilled to be partnering with Daktronics to upgrade our sound system throughout the stadium. The quality and service that we have available through Daktronics is something that is top notch and why we look forward to continuing our partnership with them. We can’t wait for the 2017 season to begin to see all these enhancements in action and the enhanced fan experiences they will bring.”

The new video display currently being installed in left-center field will measure approximately 29ft high by 45.5ft wide and will feature a 13HD pixel layout to provide crisp, clear imagery at wide-angle visibility. It is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image to feature all of the game’s exciting moments in live video and instant replay. It can also be divided into multiple zones to show additional content, statistics and sponsorship messages.

A custom audio system is also currently being installed and integrated into the production system of Louisville Slugger Field to provide booming sound and full-range sound reproduction as well as clear, intelligible speech to engage fans and keep them enthralled in the game.

The system features new speakers and subwoofers throughout the stadium and provides control for multiple entrances and the main seating area. This offers the venue the ability to hold special events with separate audio controls for different areas of the facility.

“This project shows the complete integration Daktronics is capable of providing for our customers, and we’re proud to continue our partnership with the Louisville Bats with this installation,” said Daryl Mihal, Daktronics regional manager. “The new video and sound system will certainly add to an impressive live baseball experience and we look forward to seeing the new system in action later this year.”

Daktronics will be including its Show Control System with the installation to provide a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware in one user-friendly solution.

To bring the display to life, the Bats will receive digital content from Daktronics Creative Services, an award-winning in-house creative group. Animations and graphics will be delivered at the request of the team.
