The new LED video ribbon board will be located to the right of the main video scoreboard, as seen in this rendering provided by the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

The Cedar Rapids Kernels will add a light-emitting diode (LED) video ribbon board in the outfield area of Veterans Memorial Stadium before the start of the 2016 season. It will be located to the right of the existing LED video scoreboard.

The new right-field ribbon board will measure 8.5 feet tall by 85 feet long. The team says it will display live video, still graphics and custom animations, and can be controlled independent of the main LED board or combined with the main LED board for effect.

The ribbon board will replace the elevated tri-vision outfield signs but will utilize the structural steel already in place. Spare parts from six tri-vision signs will be used to maintain the remaining tri-vision outfield signage.

Removal of the tri-vision outfield signs began December 1 and will continue throughout the winter. Installation of the LED ribbon board will take place over a two-week period beginning in March.
