Daktronics has another Major League Baseball project to add to its roster of installations. The company has inked a deal to install an HD scoreboard at the Philadelphia Phillies’ Citizens Bank Park.

The LED video screen, which should be ready for the series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 29-30, will be nearly three times the size of the old version. Measuring 76 feet high and 97 feet wide, making the scoreboard display the largest in the National League.

The $10 million HD upgrade, to be completed in collaboration with Sony Electronics’ System Solutions Group, will feature Daktronics HD-15 technology with up to 1512 lines of resolution.

“We are truly excited to bring the HD experience to our fans,” said Phillies director of broadcasting and video services Mark Dinardo in a statement. “The new technology and dramatically larger screen size will bring our fans closer to the action than ever.”

Citizens Bank Park also features 1,365 speakers and a distributed audio system. Last season, more than 3.6 million fans watched a Phillies game in the stadium.
