BROOKINGS, S.D. – Apr. 14, 2020 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, announces improvements to its Show Control solution, a product line featuring both display control with Show Control Studio and video production and streaming applications with Show Control Live. The new offering is a combination of new and existing products that can be packaged for use at any venue for any size of event.
“We designed the Show Control products with a consistent platform that can easily be customized to meet current and future needs of any venue with any display system, all from one affordable solution,” said Rich Hintz, Daktronics vice president. “Live events are meant to bring people together to experience something fun and exciting. Show Control is here to help producers provide fully immersive experiences for their audiences with a powerful and easy-to-use system.”
The solution allows producers to combine production efficiency with a lower cost of ownership and operation. It can easily integrate with any audiovisual systems to drive all displays in and around the venue, including full display synchronization with the push of a button. Real-time rendering and broadcast production tools allow teams to create advanced graphics, dynamic transitions and data effects for both streaming and in-venue productions.
While Show Control is powerful enough to support the largest sporting events in the world and is in use by more than 3,000 customers around the globe, it is also easy to use as more than 1,000 high schools across the United States employ the solution to support their events.
“With Show Control, users can be trained easily on the interface and functionality,” added Hintz. “They can increase the complexity of their show as they continue to learn within the platform. Listening to our extensive customer base, we’re always looking to advance our products and are continually working to provide new features to help our customers with their workflows.”
