PNC ParkThe Pittsburgh Pirates announced today that the ballclub will install a larger video display for its main scoreboard and add a new light emitting diode (LED) fascia display that will span the ballpark's upper deck.

With it, the new main scoreboard display will have the capability of more than doubling the size of the current video display, as well as splitting into multiple windows to show lineups, statistics, out-of-town game information, animation, video clips and much more.

The Pirates partnered with Daktronics to upgrade the ballpark's video displays in time for the 2007 Home Opener on April 9 when the Pirates take on the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:35 p.m.

The enhanced main scoreboard display is ProStar® technology and HD-ready. It will have an active area measuring approximately 35 feet high by 82 feet wide, with more than 160 percent greater size and resolution. It will use the latest in full-color LED technology to show a single, wide screen image, or be split into multiple windows to show the latest game information.

The existing video display on the main scoreboard will be disassembled and reconfigured, with additional new display modules, to form a 'ribbon' LED video display across PNC Park's upper deck. The new ProAd® fascia display will span 960 feet from foul pole to foul pole and measure approximately 3 feet in height.
