Chattanooga Lookouts Installing New Daktronics LED Video Display At AT&T Field
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Mar. 17, 2017 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with the Chattanooga Lookouts to bring new LED technology to their game-day experience at AT&T Field. The outfield video display is tentatively scheduled to be installed during the first week in April.
"We are thrilled to be able to make this investment in Chattanooga," said Lookouts Managing Owner Jason Freier. "The Lookouts are always striving to improve the fan experience at AT&T Field. This new video board, with its larger size, higher resolution and superior capabilities, will bring fans even closer to the game action and enhance our fun on-field promotions."
The main outfield video display will measure approximately 17 feet high by 35 feet wide and will feature a 15HD pixel layout to bring excellent image clarity and contrast to Lookouts fans throughout the ballpark. It brings 3.8 million LEDs and nearly 600 square feet of video display space – the same space as 56 total 60-inch televisions – to the game-day experience.
The display is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or to show multiple zones of content simultaneously including live video, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
"We're excited to provide these LED displays for the Lookouts and their fans at AT&T Field," said Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. "The outfield display will bring a 'wow' factor to every game while also giving extra flexibility to their live-event messaging. It will be great to see everything installed in the upcoming weeks."
Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology features industry-leading environmental protection for a long lifetime with consistent, industry-leading performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
