LSI Industries Inc. Chosen To Supply New Video Display Board for Vermont Lake Monsters
CINCINNATI, July 5, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LSI Industries Inc. (LYTS) today announced that it was chosen to take part in the recent upgrade at Centennial Field, in Burlington, Vermont. As home to the Lake Monsters, the 5,000-seat historic facility and ballpark have undergone significant changes to make the venue more energy-efficient, effective and inviting to fans and players. One of the key changes to Centennial Field is the new LED SMARTVISION® sports video board.
Partnering with Total Sports Entertainment, a leader in sports promotions/entertainment and game production solutions and software headquartered in La Crosse, Wisconsin, LSI produced the LED sports video display to reflect the overall presentation as designed by TSE. The new 20mm video display represents LSI's latest sports video board design - built upon the latest generation of LSI's SMARTVISION® LED technology with greater energy efficiency and a brighter, more brilliant color presentation packaged in a lighter, more cost-effective structure.
"It was a pleasure to work hand-in-hand with LSI on the final design and integration of the new state-of-the-art display and scoring system for the Lake Monsters," said Bob Masewicz, Founder/Owner of TSE.
"The video board was something we wanted to do to enhance our promotions and the entertainment value to our fans," said Nate Cloutier, Lake Monsters General Manager. "The nearly 16' x 27', 20mm video display will enhance the game experience with its live video, player information, advertisements, game promotions and fan interaction. The new white LED scoreboard is also a substantial upgrade included in the project."
"The Centennial Field project is further evidence of LSI's commitment to the sports video display market," said Bob Ready, CEO LSI Industries.
