  1. Speaking of which, I'll be in your town again in about a week. Stop by for a free beer!
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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. 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.

  12. Name That Font!

    Edited above post. Should be able to see now.
  13. Name That Font!

    Can someone give me a hand here. I lost the original file I did for this about 6 months ago, now all I have is a low res proof and I need to recreate it. Can anyone tell me what font I used for "Saffron" and what font "Indian Cuisine" is. I know they are two different fonts, and whatthefont.com has been no help thus far.
