BROOKINGS, S.D. – Jan. 19, 2018 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has been asked by Jacksonville State University (JSU) in Alabama, to design, manufacture and install two new LED video displays for Rudy Abbott Field and University Field, the school’s home for baseball and softball events, respectively. Installation is slated for early this year to be ready for the 2018 season.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to enhance our experience for our student-athletes and fans with new Daktronics video and scoreboards at baseball, softball and tennis,” said JSU Athletic Director Greg Seitz. “We are pleased to continue our Daktronics partnership and these new displays keep us on the cutting edge of game presentation. We think our fans of every age will really enjoy the new experience that we will be able to provide.”
The new video display at Rudy Abbott Field will measure 15.5 feet high by 35 feet wide. The display at University Field will measure 13 feet high by 24 feet wide. Both displays will feature 15HD pixel layouts to bring crisp, vivid imagery to Gamecocks fans in every seat of each venue.
Both displays are capable of variable content zoning which allows each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
“We’re grateful to extend our long-standing relationship with JSU on these facility upgrades,” said Daktronics Sales Representative Glen Marts. “These are the first video displays for baseball and softball on their campus and the tennis scoreboard will provide up-to-the-minute information to fans that simply wasn’t available before. The entire project will further enhance the game-day atmosphere for Gamecocks fans of multiple sports on campus.”
Daktronics will also be including its powerful Show Control System with this installation. This industry-leading system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
