The Detroit Tigers announced today that they will be adding a video board in the outfield wall, over 900 feet of animated fascia signage and an additional matrix display on the leftfield scoreboard to Comerica Park in time for the 2007 season.
ANC Sports Enterprises announced the multi-year agreement (financial terms not released) with the Tigers to supply and control a 25mm SMARTVISION® light emitting diode (LED) signage system that will make up the displays.
“We strive each off-season to look for ways to improve the Comerica Park experience for our fans both on and away from the field,” said Tigers’ Senior Vice President of Business Operations, Duane McLean. “ANC Sports innovative signage and software solutions will create an energetic game day atmosphere, while increasing the impact of our sponsorships programs.”
The new signage system will allow the Tigers to display better in-game visuals, team animations, real-time statistics, out of town scores and advertisements.
LED technology will highlight three sections of the fascia on the lower tier suite level, animating both the right and left field lines with full motion team graphics, player information and advertisements. The electronic outfield wall will highlight approximately 6½’ by 67’ and replace the scoreboard embedded in the right-center field, displaying game statistics and out of town scores with the ability to transform into full motion video. The 4’ by 53’ full color display on the leftfield scoreboard will compliment the existing video screen and matrix displays.
