Nashville, Tenn., June 10, 2013 — Minor league baseball games provide a wonderful opportunity for fans of the game to enjoy the sights and sounds of baseball in a fun, family-friendly environment. From the crack of the bat to the sheer grace of middle infielders easily turning a double play, it’s hard to beat a night at the minor league ballpark on a beautiful spring or summer evening. However, for fans of the Nashville Sounds, AAA affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, the ability to watch video replays and highlights on a state-of-the-art digital scoreboard is missing from an otherwise perfect experience, as Greer Stadium, the team’s 36-year-old ballpark, isn’t equipped with such video technology capabilities.

While talks proceed on moving the team to a new ballpark with current day amenities, including a video scoreboard in the outfield, the Nashville Sounds were able to enhance the fan experience during a recent night game by utilizing lightweight and flexible LED video curtain panels manufactured by PixelFLEX. With more than 3,000 fans in attendance for Music Industry Night, a popular promotional event scheduled several times a season that features a pre-game musical performance, the Sounds kept fans in the action throughout the game by delivering video and player information across the PixelFLEX panels in right-centerfield.

“Our fans are among the best across the country, so we are hopeful in regards to the possibility of a new ballpark with better amenities, including a video scoreboard,” said Brad Tammen, the team’s vice president and general manager. “In the meantime, we’re glad we had an opportunity to test out the PixelFLEX system. I was really impressed with the clarity, sharpness and brightness of the panels.”

Videos and images can be sent to PixelFLEX’s screens using any computer with a DVI-D connection. Each typical screen panel is approximately 8’x4’, but modifications can be made easily to meet specific needs of the consumer – panels can be attached together with PixelFLEX’s proprietary quicklock system. During the Sounds’ game, PixelFLEX provided a 24’ wide by 16’ tall wall of 20mm panels.

“The thing that surprised me most was the ease of set up,” Tammen continued. “All of a sudden, the PixelFLEX video screen appeared out of nowhere, hanging above the right-centerfield wall. We’re planning to use the screen again for our game on July 3rd, which will feature fireworks and probably a much larger audience. We’re looking forward to it.”

PixelFLEX, designer of the leading lightweight and flexible LED video curtain, announced today the relocation of its business operations from Memphis to Nashville. The move, to 700 Cowan Street in Nashville, was made to better service the music industry and church market.

“Commonly referred to as ‘Music City,’ Nashville is the center of the music industry,” said Jeremy Byrd, president of PixelFLEX. “In addition to its ties to music, Nashville also is well known for its strong religious roots. Our LED curtains are an ideal solution for both musical acts and faith-based organizations looking to enhance live performances with rich and engaging video images. As such, it seemed logical that we would move our base of operations across the state.”

After the successful launch of its initial 20mm video screen in 2011, PixelFLEX expanded its product offerings in 2012 to include 18mm, 30mm, 50mm and 100mm screens – presenting a variety of video display solutions to meet any and all live event needs. PixelFLEX screens have provided support to notable musical acts including Meatloaf, Toby Mac and Skillet, Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts, as well as respected ministry leaders such as Joel Osteen. Additionally, the company’s innovative product is also ideal in fixed theatre installations – the company’s screen is currently in use at the University of Iowa and Longwood University.

Easy to operate and set up – videos and images can be sent to the screen using any computer with a DVI-D connection – PixelFLEX LED curtains are available from low resolution to high resolution, allowing users to demonstrate simple effects or elaborate videos. Each typical screen panel is approximately 8′x4′, but modifications can be made easily to meet specific needs – panels can be attached together with PixelFLEX’s proprietary quicklock system.

Flexible in all directions, PixelFLEX LED curtains are able to bend and shape around structures for a more creative display effect and can be stored in a single road case to simplify shipping. This flexibility, in combination with the product’s extraordinary light weight – PixelFLEX screens range from 4.5 lbs. to 19.9 lbs. per square meter, which is 60 to 90 percent less than most other LED video screens – provides substantial savings on transportation costs.

“Able to fit in a single five-foot trunk and requiring minimal time to set up and tear down, our LED curtains are extremely popular with one-truck tours where space and manpower are an issue,” Byrd continued. “The move to Nashville will facilitate our company’s continued growth as we introduce new products and provide support to leading acts and ministries.”
