Toronto Blue Jays Improve Home Field Advantage with New LED Displays from Daktronics
10 LED displays totaling 14,000+ square feet and 11+ million LEDs installed at Rogers Centre ahead of 2022 season
BROOKINGS, S.D. – April 28, 2022 – As the Toronto Blue Jays move into the 2022 season, they have improved the home field advantage and game-day experience by continuing a partnership with Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, for 10 new LED displays at the Rogers Centre in Ontario. The total of 14,000+ square feet of displays combining for more than 11 million LEDs were installed this offseason, including an HDR-capable main video display.
The new main video display is curved, HDR-capable and measures approximately 49 feet high by 110.5 feet wide. It is installed in center field to bring an excellent viewing experience to Blue Jays fans throughout the stadium. This display features variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or multiple zones of content including any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
Flanking the main display are four additional LED displays and content can be coordinated across all five displays for one main center field viewing experience. Two displays mounted even with the bottom of the main display measure 15.5 feet high by 75.5 feet wide and two ribbon-style displays appear to extend out from the middle of the main display measure nearly 5 feet high by 75.5 feet wide. All center field displays feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing.
“The new HDR-capable main video display and center field display configuration at the Rogers Centre will deliver an amazing viewing experience for the Toronto Blue Jays, their players and fans,” said Daktronics President and CEO Reece Kurtenbach. “We’re thrilled to continue our long-standing partnership with the team and to introduce this cutting-edge technology at their ballpark.”
Additional displays include a main ribbon display installed along the seating fascia measures 3.5 feet high by 1,324 feet wide and features 16-millimeter pixel spacing. Two displays near the foul poles each measure 6 feet high by 32.5 feet wide and, along the outfield wall, two field-level fence displays each measure 9.5 feet high by 65 feet wide. These four displays feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing.
Coordinated together, all of these displays provide additional statistics, graphics and sponsorship opportunities to entertain and engage Blue Jays fans during every game.
