​​College Bowl Games Captivate Fans With Animations and Graphics

Daktronics Creative Services delivers for Orange, Outback bowls​

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Jan. 13, 2017 – College football season ended with an exciting last second touchdown, but rowdy crowds were entertained throughout the entire football bowl series, specifically at the Orange Bowl and Outback Bowl, with graphics and animations from Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) Creative Services flashing on video displays in Miami and Tampa, Florida.​

The in-game video display production at today's college football games requires more than live video and instant replays, and that's where these two bowl game venues – Hard Rock Stadium for the Orange Bowl and Raymond James Stadium for the Outback Bowl – relied on the award-winning in-house creative team at Daktronics for full slates of game-in-progress layouts, logo treatments, game prompts, social media graphics, replay transitions, matchup animations, sponsor messages and more.​

"While the graphics and animations themselves are very important, it's the correct formatting for every display, the expertise to make them look good on displays of any size and ratio, and the cohesive design and style that make it look like a unified production where our customers realize the added value our team can provide," said Fred Doremus, Daktronics Creative Services account manager.​

Doremus continued, "These bowl games and other projects of this nature are also very exciting for our team to showcase our capabilities and see the results both in the stadium and on national television along with millions of other viewers. We're very proud to have a hand in making these events exciting for everyone involved."​

The Orange Bowl took place on December 30, 2016, and the Outback Bowl was played on January 1, 2017.​

"It has been an enjoyable experience to work with these two bowl games as we helped them be prepared and ready to put on a show for their fans, and we look forward to helping out with bowl games and other high-profile events in the future," said Bob Lee, Daktronics creative director for these bowl projects. ​
