Upgraded Sound Reinforcement, Video Production and Display Systems for Angel Stadium

Major League Baseball’s (MLB) Los Angeles Angels recently underwent a two-year long stadium technology renovation to enhance the fan experience in Angel Stadium. Having worked with the Angels since 2011 on video production system upgrades, Diversified was engaged to design and build a high definition video production control room, design and implement a concert level touring sound system and provide LED consulting.

The stadium sound systems, first installed in the mid-90’s, then renovated in 2002, now includes 300 speakers and 50 subwoofers delivering music touring-grade sound quality that is synchronized with the LED video displays. Additional highlights include a permanently installed field-level sound system for players during pregame practices and warm-ups.

Large screen LED displays previously installed in 2004 have been exchanged for nearly 24,000 square feet of state-of-the-art digital canvas capable of beating the intensity of the Southern California sun. Besides MLB game and player statistical data, video replays and dynamic sponsorship graphical elements, Angels fans are also treated to their renowned fun and entertainment on the massive LED scoreboards, including the infamous Rally Monkey. The scoreboard in right field, which is the third largest in MLB, spans an area four-and-a-half times that of an NBA basketball court. The iconic roadside “Big A” Marquee also experienced a complete full-color LED renovation of its halo and the display facing north to the 57 Freeway, creating a beacon for Angels fans across SoCal with every Angels’ win.

New production digital media workflow including editorial systems, storage and LTO archival have been added and more than 50 years of the Angels’ historical film and video tape library has been digitized and preserved. Back of house production systems undergoing a measured renovation for more than three years have arrived at their full HD destination with new cameras, replay and routing. All of this was completed in one off-season by Diversified in a design build partnership with the Angels’ management and production staff.
