Delta has installed the country’s largest outdoor LED display at Hualien Baseball Stadium, Taiwan. The 16mm pitch display features brightness of up to 6,000 nits, contrast ratio of 4,000:1 and remote management systems.
Hualien is the first baseball stadium in Taiwan to adopt a single-screen LED display with integrated scoreboard. Measuring 20.16m wide and 7.68m tall, the IP65-rated display has Taiwan’s largest display area and highest resolution, enabling live broadcasts to be viewed from a distance with great clarity of detail. The brightness can be adjusted to suit ambient light conditions, to save energy.
On a recent match day, baseball fans were able to enjoy close-up live images and instant replays. The scoreboard operator used Delta’s programmable logic controller (PLC) to remotely display team rosters and current scores through picture-in-picture. With the addition of a radar gun, fans could not only see the current players and pitch count on the big screen, but also the actual pitch speeds, displayed almost instantaneously. A video customisation service allowed the main display to broadcast live feeds of the audience and interact with the crowd. Team and business advertisements were shown between innings and during intermissions.
The Delta Displays team was invited to install the LED display at the stadium by Fu Kun-chi, county magistrate; the Hualien County Government has been a strong promoter of local sport in recent years.
