Fans attending San Jose Giants games now can see video replays, close up action and other entertaining content on a huge new virtual scoreboard and video display manufactured by Watchfire Signs. The new display is 26 feet tall by 36 feet wide, and features Watchfire’s true 19mm resolution and the industry’s best display brightness.
The San Jose Giants’ organization has long been recognized as one of the most innovative teams in professional sports by providing the latest in technology to enhance the fan experience. This philosophy has been championed by Bill Schlough, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer of the San Francisco Giants, and Chairman of the Board of the San Jose Giants.
“Sports fans have come to expect more out of their visit to the ballpark, and the San Jose Giants’ 30th season made the timing for the new display perfect,” said Lance Motch, Senior Vice President of Baseball Operations for the San Jose Giants. “The game day experience is a live production with the video display as the focal point to enhance the fan experience at Municipal Stadium.”
Choosing the right virtual scoreboard video display was a critical decision for the club, and the Giants chose Watchfire Signs.
“After visiting the Watchfire manufacturing facility in Illinois, we were extremely impressed by their entire operation,” said Motch. “It was important to us that Watchfire displays carry a no-hassle warranty. Also, we purchased a Watchfire marquee sign in 2011 and have had zero issues.”
Dave Warns, Watchfire VP of On-Premise Sales, shared his delight in continuing the relationship with the MiLB San Jose Giants, “It has been great working with the San Jose Giants over the last several years, from the stadium entrance sign o to the newly installed video display and control room. The San Jose Giants do everything first class and working with them has forged a solid partnership.”
