The Toronto Blue Jays have gained more than 4100 square feet of display with the Toronto Rogers Center’s new LED-based display.

This spring, two sports facilities — Coors Field and the Toronto Rogers Center — have new display systems from Daktronics.

Coors Field in Denver replaced an older CRT-based display system with a ProStar LED-based system, and the Rogers Center upgraded to a more economical, yet technologically advanced system.

After more than 15 years with its old system, the Toronto Blue Jays chose Daktronics to install an enhanced LED display system in Toronto’s Rogers Centre (formerly the SkyDome). For a fraction of the cost of its original system, the new display is 4170sq-ft larger.

At Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies, Daktronics installed a large ProStar screen measuring about 27ft high by 48ft wide replacing the existing CRT video screen in the left field. The upgrade also includes three ProAd digital advertising displays, which show a variety of content, including game-in-progress information, statistics, advertiser messages, public service announcements, graphic, animation and video clips. Two of the fascia-mounted displays, measuring 4ft high by 218ft wide, were installed along the first and third base lines. A third ProAd display, measuring 6ft high by 60ft wide, was installed in front of the “Rockpile” in center field.
