  1. I remembered my password.
  2. Speaking of which, I'll be in your town again in about a week. Stop by for a free beer!
  3. Do you still live in the area? I pass South on the way to and from work every day. They had a hell of a surprising season last year!
  4. I couldn't tell you how much it would cost without knowing the size. A lot of the price has to do with the structural elements at the facility as well. I would assume a display that size (judging from the photo, approximately 40' tall by around 100' wide) would be right around a million bucks. The structure itself is what protects from storms, wind, and the like. We have great engineers on staff and have been in the billboard business forever, so we know how to keep signs up in awful conditions. The lead time depends on the structure. If the structure is ready to roll, then so are we. We'd probably be able to get something operational at this scale in about 6-8 weeks. Here's another we just did in Baltimore at Laurel Park horse track. You'll notice near the end of the video the addition of another row of cabinets along the bottom. They wanted to go bigger after the fact, and that section was installed about a month later.
  5. Sorry for the delay in responding. I do a lot from column A and a little from column B. The ID Panels are designed by me, with input from the facilities. I work closely with a software developer to give us exactly what we need out of the scoring software, which accomodates 7 sports now. I also design the scoreboard templates that are on screen, as well as provide in game animations for each board purchased. The process can take up to a year, but usually it only takes that long if a client needs to raise the money for the product. If someone were to order one today, and were able to pay in full right now, we would be able to have a display up and running at their facility in 4-6 weeks. Most of that time would be spent in site surveys, laying the foundation for the base, laying fiber for comms, getting electrical ready, permitting, etc. The display usually goes up in less than a day and is operational right away.
  6. 2014 SF Giants World Series ring the President of their short season single A affiliate let me try on last month...
  7. Since I rarely post here anymore due to being (nearly) overwhelmingly busy, I thought I'd post some of the projects I've been involved in with my job. Some of you may know, I work for a large scale LED display manufacturer on the software and creative side. The job allows me to travel quite a bit, which is pretty sweet. A couple years ago, we starting moving into the sports and entertainment display world, designing and building scoreboards for athletic facilities. We decided to start small, more on the high school, small to midsize college, and minor league level, before we start bidding on more visible projects. Below is a sampling of some of the scoreboards I've designed, as well as some concept drawings. I know it's a lot of photos, but I'm pretty proud of the work we've done.
  8. You might be able to find street parking near the stadium, if you're lucky. If not, there are plenty of lots in the vicinity that are less than the $20 you'll spend at the ballpark. For my money, and the convenience, I'd just stick with the stadium parking and maybe you'll get to park by the outfield wall where Hammerin' Hank hit #715. Also, there's a Waffle House in the stadium. Take that for what it's worth. Better yet, Holleman+Finch has a burger stand there too. You owe it to yourself to get yourself one.
  9. Very cool. Were you at the press conference?
  10. Regular Hours of Operation Mon.-Fri.: 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sat-Sun.: 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Closed: Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day
  11. What's it say? I'll try to find it next time I'm there.
  12. This one is going to be 2.5 times the size, and in the middle of the south, attendance shouldn't be an issue.
  13. So, I was at the news conference at the new CFB HOF in Atlanta yesterday. Here are some pics from the event, and a sneak peak at some of the exhibits that are being built. For what it's worth, I work for the company that is contracted to do all the large screen LED displays at the hall. I was there to make sure the presentation ran smoothly. Lots of images to follow.
  14. The Malkmus/Lovato idea made me audibly chuckle.
  15. This is quite possibly the best post in which my name has been mentioned.
