new Internal Media Compartment, which will house and protect a Cisco media
player providing a networked platform advertising opportunities.
"We are pleased that SunBriteTV is becoming a
standard for outdoor sporting venues, such as Target Field, where the harsh
weather conditions requires a proven industrial-strength product," stated Lynn
Stearn, SunBriteTV's sales VP. "We're especially excited about our growing
relationship with Best Buy for Business, who as the integrator for this
installation, relies on SunBriteTV's all-weather technology for Target Field."
