This allows arena management, advertisers, and marketing to keep in contact with fans in the stands via SMS, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to communicate special promotions and announcements, ticket sales information, fan polling, concessions deals and more. Cutting-edge examples of this pioneering interactivity can be seen at many of D3’s flagship retail installations in Times Square.

D3’s installations in Times Square are some of the most celebrated video displays in the world. In New York City, these include ABC Television Studios, Disney Store, JVC, Hard Rock, M&Ms, Forever 21, Aeropostale and Walgreens, to name a few. The Company also services the Casino market with digital displays located at Caesar’s in Atlantic City and several at Harrah’s locations in the U.S. All-American Scoreboards’ next generation scorekeeping systems combine state-of-the-art design with the functionality and precision required to keep tabs on sporting events.

A division of Everbrite, one of the world’s leading full service visual identification companies, All-American Scoreboard has built its reputation on a ‘customer first’ commitment, making it an ideal partner for D3. “With A2D3, we are addressing the evolving needs of our customers in every material way in terms of up-front value, functionality, scalability, fan engagement, information delivery, and high-tech marketing, advertising and crossover promotions capabilities,” said Scott Carter, president, Everbrite, LLC.According to Carter, “The fact is that no two scoreboard displays are alike. Every customer and every stadium or arena has their own requirements. Each video scoreboard system can be custom fit to the venue’s unique architecture taking advantage of any and all available facades, outdoors and indoors. For our clients, the innovative nature and energy efficiency of our systems make the total cost of ownership highly attractive.” Recent projects include video scoreboards at Barron Stadium in Rome, Georgia, home to the NAIA football championships; Raley Field, home to the Sacramento River Cats; California State University Sacramento, home to both the Sac State Hornets and the UFL Sacramento Mountain Lions football teams; Cibao Stadium in the Dominican Republic; Casas GEO Stadium in Mexicali, Mexico and displays for the upcoming 2011 Asian Winter Games.
