Daktronics to Provide Video Display for University Of Oregon Softball
Jane Sanders Stadium to receive upgrade to visual experience
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Nov. 24, 2015 – Ducks softball fans will have a new reason to cheer as Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has been asked to provide a new LED video display for University of Oregon's Jane Sanders Stadium on campus in Eugene, Oregon. Installation is slated for late this fall with a stadium opening in 2016.
"Mr. Sanders' generosity and passion for Oregon athletics will allow us to continue to provide an exceptional student experience and dramatically improve the softball fan experience. And most importantly, this great facility will honor Jane Sanders," said Rob Mullens, director of athletics, University of Oregon.
The new video display coming to right field will measure 12 feet high by 36 feet wide and feature a 15HD pixel layout to provide clear, vibrant imagery with wide angle visibility to appeal to the entire stadium. It will incorporate variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple different zones to show live video, instant replays, statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
"Daktronics is pleased to have been selected to provide the video display system for the new Jane Sanders Stadium," said Daktronics Sales Representative Greg Schmidt. "The new softball complex is state-of-the-art and we are proud to be a part of it! We value our relationship with the University of Oregon and look forward to future projects at this prestigious university."
Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology features industry-leading environmental protection for a long lifetime with consistent performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
