PRESS RELEASE – After approval by the Sarpy County Commissioners in January, the Omaha Storm Chasers and Daktronics are proud to announce details for the new video display coming to Werner Park in time for the historic 2015 season which includes the 2015 First National Bank Triple-A All-Star Game.
The Storm Chasers will be one the first teams in Minor League Baseball to receive a new display in 2015 that will feature a 13HD pixel layout, a technology that will be featured by only select MLB teams this year. It will measure approximately 25 feet high by 45.5 feet wide, for a more than 50% increase in size over the previous display. It will provide excellent image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility to appeal to every seat in the stadium while also incorporating industry-leading environmental protection.
“We are excited to be investing in our new state-of-the-art video board from Daktronics. To be able to deliver this on the heels of Back-to-Back Triple-A National Championships, and leading into the First National Bank 2015 All Star Game this July, is fantastic,” said Gary Green, Owner and CEO for the Omaha Storm Chasers. “Werner Park will continue to be viewed as a premier venue and we are looking forward to our fans enjoying their in-game experience even more thanks to Daktronics.”
The display will feature variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image across the entire display or it can also be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information, statistics, graphics, animations and sponsor messages. The Storm Chasers will add six new high definition cameras and a NewTek TriCaster to accompany the new video display.
“Daktronics is excited to partner with the Omaha Storm Chasers and Sarpy County on this exciting new video display upgrade for Werner Park,” said Matt Warnke, Daktronics Sales Representative. “This new display will provide fans unbelievable image quality while offering the Storm Chasers great flexibility in how they promote their partners as well as adding to an already exciting game-day atmosphere.”
