LINCOLN — Baseball fans will be treated to a brand new, state-of-the-art videoboard at Haymarket Park for the upcoming Lincoln Saltdogs and Nebraska Cornhuskers campaigns.
The new LED videoboard measures 17 feet by 34 feet – three times the size and resolution of the ballpark’s original board, and is scheduled to be installed Thursday.
The SignCo-designed screen will be capable of displaying HD quality content and provide much more flexibility for the multiple needs of daily game schedules.
“We are always looking at ways of upgrading the fan experience at Haymarket Park,” Saltdogs President Charlie Meyer said. “This new video board will continue to make Haymarket Park one of the premier baseball stadiums in the nation and will enhance the overall game experience for our fans and sponsors.”
The LED display boasts 240 lines of resolution tall x 496 columns of resolution wide on 20mm spacing.
“We are very excited to be installing the latest in video board technology for our Baseball and Softball programs and fans,” Nebraska Associate Athletic Director John Ingram said. “What a great way to usher in the their first season competing in the Big Ten Conference.”
SignCo has been been a specialist in the design and fabrication of sport marketing display signage for over 15 years. SignCo first developed a rotating sign for the University of Nebraska over 15 years ago, and parlayed that into a product line of rotating signage and rotating scorer’s tables, eventually installing their products in hundreds of Universities and Colleges across the United States.
“We were fortunate to work with the folks at Haymarket Park to install 330 feet of outfield wall signage for last season and look forward to installing a much larger screen for the main video display,” Jim Graham, President of SignCo Inc., said. “The size and resolution of this new display shows the commitment to maintain and continue to improve the fan experience.”
As digital technology made its way into the marketplace, SignCo expanded their expertise into the design and packaging of displays for LED and DLP technology for major industry players such as Dorna Sports Marketing, Mitsubishi, ANC Sports, CBS Sports Marketing, the PGA and others, and are proud to add this new Haymarket Park project. SignCo has built and installed displays in many other venues as well, including Murray State, Montana State, the University of Arizona, and many others.
Locally, SignCo provided and installed their display technology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the University of Nebraska-Omaha, Nebraska Wesleyan University and the Omaha Stormchasers.
