California State University Fullerton Adds Daktronics Digital Street Furniture

New eye-level video displays recently installed on campus

BROOKINGS, S.D. – June 30, 2016 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, was selected by California State University Fullerton to provide two double-sided digital street furniture displays to campus in Fullerton, California. Installation was completed in May and is currently sharing university messages with students and community members.

"We are excited that we partnered with Daktronics to install two new digital street furniture displays on campus," said Aaron Tapper, assistant director of athletics and marketing at Fullerton. "The signs will provide another opportunity to keep our faculty, staff, students and visitors informed of current athletic news and events. In addition, they will provide a new revenue stream for the athletic department by providing our corporate sponsor a way to directly advertise to our campus community."

These European-inspired, eye-level LED video displays each measure just more than 5 feet high by 4 feet wide and feature 6 millimeter line spacing to provide crisp, clear imagery at close viewing distances. These displays can be used to promote campus events, show emergency information, and show advertising and sponsorship messages to passersby. Being double sided allows the application to appeal to traffic moving in both directions as students and fans arrive at the venue and leave after the event is over.

"It's exciting to extend our partnership with Cal State Fullerton Athletics to install these displays on campus," said Robin Hall, Daktronics regional manager. "These innovative displays will be the first in California used to promote an athletics program on campus, and will provide great benefit to Cal State Fullerton Athletics and their sponsors."

This installation comes after Daktronics installed a new video display for soccer last year. For more on that installation, view the news release here.

Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology offers a long lifetime with consistent, industry-leading performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
