Fenway Park

Client: Boston Red Sox

Enhancing the Fan Experience

In the final year of a ten-year plan to renovate and improve its beloved home, the Boston Red Sox installed a trio of high definition video boards over the center and right field bleachers. Alpha Video Sports, along with the prime contractor, Sony, installed systems that ingest, store, retrieve, distribute and replay video to the video boards and other screens throughout the ballpark. The digital, file based system allows the Red Sox to provide more content and game information in dazzling HD quality.

The Boston Red Sox organization is an icon of the American sports landscape and we are honored to have been selected by them and Sony to integrate the new HD video systems at Fenway Park. The new HD video display and production system allow the Red Sox to enhance what is already one of the best game day fan experiences in Major League Baseball - Jeffrey Volk, Director, Alpha Video Sports & Entertainment.
