Another in a series of upgrades to Peoria Stadium, spring home of the San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners: a new LED display that will be the largest in all of spring training, as well as an audio system upgrade.
The new 2,100-square-foot display from Daktronics will also be the first spring-training use of 13HD LED technology commonly used at the highest level of sports for outdoor applications.
The new display will be installed beyond the left field fence of the ballpark. It will measure approximately 35 feet high by 61 feet wide and feature a 13HD pixel layout to provide high-resolution, crisp imagery. It is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of statistics, graphics, sponsorship messages and other information sports fans have come to expect at every game.
The upgraded audio system includes fully-distributed sound to provide fans with a complete audiovisual experience when attending events. The system provides full-range sound reproduction and delivers clear and intelligible speech for a powerful overall audio experience.
“We’re looking forward to bringing new technology to Peoria Sports Complex to enhance the game-day experience for baseball and other events,” said Brady Jacobsen, Daktronics sales representative. “The sheer size of the display will bring added engagement to the game by keeping fans informed with up-to-the-minute stats and entertaining graphics. We’re excited to see the final result having an impact this year.”
The installation is the latest in upgrades to the Peoria Sports Complex. Two years ago the clubhouses were upgraded and a new group pavilion added to the left-field area. Other improvements have included upgraded seating, a new team story and a youth water-sports area.
