This has expanded to a total of 106 solar panels to support the stadium’s electrical needs, resulting in the production of 32,000 kWh per year. To reinforce their commitment and educate public awareness on the topic of solar energy, they have added a kiosk that offers information on solar energy as well as their own solar project.

scoreboards-colors

In today’s world of marketing, branding is everything and this is a particularly important topic when it comes to color choices. Branding goes beyond the idea of just using your school or team colors and enters into the area of psychology. Colors make an impression and, depending upon color selections and combinations, it can be a complete loss or a total win. Research has shown that between 62% and 90% of people will make immediate judgments based on color, so you want the first reaction to be the right one.

The first thing you need to consider in color choices for your branding is your target audience. Younger people are attracted and react to colors in a different way than middle aged people. If you have a combination audience, remember to think beyond trend colors. These colors will quickly go out of fad and if you make the wrong choice, your scoreboard will look very dated.

Scoreboard LED Lighting – Looks Better From Every View

LED LightingYou might remember when the first widescreen televisions entered the market. One of the challenges of that technology was that to get a good view of the picture, you literally had to be face-on in front of it. Moving to any other angle, meant that you lost the brightness, clarity and picture. That was because the early LCD screens were manufactured with what is referred to as ‘narrow viewing cones’. Technology has come a long way since that time, especially on the topic of electronic scoreboards.
