This year, four new displays featuring the latest in Daktronics SMD LED technology – 8 millimeter SMD displays – will be added to the upper concourse of the stadium, above the Miller Flight Deck, as the facility wants to set a standard in sports venues of keeping fans up-to-date on the game’s excitement while away from their seats.
“We remain committed to enhancing the game-day experience at M&T Bank Stadium,” says Dick Cass, Ravens president. “This is the second-consecutive year we’ve made significant upgrades to our digital video displays. The addition of these new screens will be great for our fans. They will provide even more entertainment and football information for people to enjoy.”
Each of these new displays will feature 8 millimeter line spacing on SMD (Surface-Mount Device) LED outdoor technology. The displays will each measure 6’ high by 22’ wide to show fans the same content as the main video displays while they are in the upper concourse areas heading to and from the restrooms or concessions.
Will Ellerbruch, Daktronics national sales manager for live events, says, “The Ravens continue to set the standard for venue-wide video display implementation, and this installation takes everything a step further by introducing cutting-edge technology outside of the main bowl to cater to fans away from their seats.”
In their 19th year of existence, the Baltimore Ravens have won two Super Bowls (2000 and 2012) and several AFC championships.
