Coca-Cola Sign at Fenway Park

The Boston Red Sox and Coca-Cola approached Triangle Sign of Baltimore about building an extra special Coca-Cola sign for Fenway Park.

The requirements included it had to be 40 feet wide, use the latest generation LEDs, and be animated so the lights looked like they were writing the letters in a slow script.

With some help from Animated Lighting, the sign ended up with 1022 individual LEDs controlled by 252 circuits. Below are some details of the installation as the park prepared for Opening Day 2008.
