BROOKINGS, S.D. – Aug. 4, 2017 – The University of Cincinnati has partnered with Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display at Nippert Stadium. The display will be ready to make a large impact at the Bearcats’ home for football games this fall.
“The new video board is a great enhancement to Nippert Stadium,” Head Coach Luke Fickell said. “UC is committed to giving its great fans the best game-day experience possible. It gives us the ability to impact fans, recruits and visitors to campus all year long. I am excited to see construction get started this month.”
The new end zone display will measure 31 feet high by 114 feet wide and feature a 13HD pixel layout for excellent image clarity and contrast. It also features industry-leading environmental protection and wide angle visibility ensuring a great view from any seat within Nippert Stadium.
The display will be capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or multiple different zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, game-day graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
“We’re excited to continue our long-standing partnership with the University of Cincinnati to bring this video display enhancement to Nippert Stadium,” said Daktronics Regional Sales Manager Daryl Mihal. “The new end zone display will bring a ‘wow’ factor sure to excite Bearcat fans and student-athletes. We’re looking forward to seeing the final installation making an impact for the university when football kicks off this fall.”
In addition to the equipment installation, University of Cincinnati will also receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services at the request of the university.
