LED Scoreboard Captures Piece of Baseball Nostalgia

May 10, 2010
Date Announced: 10 May 2010 ANC Sports Enterprises partnered with the Seattle Mariners to create the most advanced out-of-town scoreboard in Major League Baseball for the 2010 season. The new 99-feet wide by 11-feet high Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Vision™ LED video scoreboard at Safeco Field is the first to feature a new animated function whereas the statistics will appear to slide out and be replaced the same way old scoreboards were manually updated. ANC Sports spearheaded the installation and development of the software features to present a scoreboard that captures a piece of baseball nostalgia, appearing as an old out-of-town scoreboard, however featuring detailed information such as scores of games in progress, current pitchers, batters, outs and runners on base from around the league. Driven by ANC’s patent-pending VisionSoft™ operating system, the signage looks like a manually operated wood scoreboard, however, unlike its older predecessors, the state-of-the-art 1,100 square feet screen at Safeco Field will also seamlessly transition to dynamic content, such as full-motion team graphics, animations such as Let's Hear It, and sponsor acknowledgements in conjunction with real-time statistics. VisionSOFT is the first operating system capable of animating real-time statistical data that replaces scores in this traditional visually appealing and entertaining process. The scoreboard at Safeco Field also features special features such as red numbers when teams are scoring and detailed statistics such as full game line scores, how many home runs were hit, what happened on the last play, among numerous other league-wide information. "ANC's signage systems provide teams with the capabilities to deliver real-time statistics and premium entertainment in an environment where fans want to be connected to games throughout the league," said Jerome Cifarelli, president and chief executive officer of ANC Sports. "Our full service signage and marketing solution ensures all of ANC's partners feature an event atmosphere that creates a dynamic and long-lasting consumer impression."About ANC SportsANC Sports Enterprises, LLC, a Celeritas Management company, is the industry leader in team and venue services, providing integrated signage, design, and marketing solutions for sports and commercial facilities.
