U.S. Cellular Field, home of Major League Baseball’s Chicago White Sox, started off its 2016 season with a brand new high-definition LED video screen in center field.
The display, built by Warrendale, Pennsylvania-based Diamond Vision Systems, a division of Mitsubishi Electric Power Products, measures 60’ x 134’ and features a triangular top reminiscent of the scoreboard shape at the old Comiskey Park. The display has a resolution of 4,096 pixels wide and 1,840 pixels high at its tallest point, making it just shy of 4K UHD. The company says the display uses advanced 10mm black package SMD technology provided by Diamond Vision’s Designed for Performance XL-Series of LED displays.
Atop the centerfield video display, U.S. Cellular Field’s seven iconic pinwheels have been updated to feature full LED capabilities using Diamond Vision’s 16mm black package SMD technology, which allows the pinwheels to display any creative look or animation the White Sox’s creative department can envision.
In addition to the centerfield display, the left and right field displays consist of 29 ½’ x 79’ high-definition boards featuring the XL-Series 10mm SMD display technology.
In total, the three display systems will encompass more than 12,600 square feet of digital display area. The video display system includes integration of a new scoring and control system for displaying synchronized high-definition video, animations, scoring and social media content across the various displays.
