Old Republic Surety Goes High-Tech With Pittsburgh Pirates Video Project


A major league ballpark can be a feast for the senses, from colorful fan gear to a tasty barbecue sandwich. There’s always plenty of action down on the field, but visitors like to be entertained in the stands as well.

That’s why stadiums are employing state-of-the-art video technology to enhance their fans’ game-day experience. A case in point is PNC Park, the home of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

In 2022, PNC Park decided to upgrade its video production equipment with high-definition cameras, switchers and wiring. The stadium had recently spent $5.6 million to double the size of its scoreboard, and it wanted to take advantage of the new display’s advanced capabilities.

Texolve Digital Inc. was selected for the $4.3 million project, but it needed a bond. The catch was this niche company didn’t fit the traditional mold for contract surety. Nevertheless, Old Republic Surety found a way for Texolve Digital to hit a home run and score a win for PNC Park.
