BROOKINGS, S.D. – January 30, 2015 – Daktronics Inc. (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, S.D announces its latest addition to Florida Department of Transportation's TERL-approved product listing. Known for a highly selective process in choosing top-quality digital displays, TERL recently approved Daktronics most recent transportation innovation, a single-line 20mm HRFC (high-resolution, full-color) dedicated dynamic message sign, the VM-1020 Series LED display.

In addition to expanding Daktronics product offering, the VM-1020 features variable character and background colors such as black letters or numbers on a white background.

With a majority of the electronic equipment housed in a roadside cabinet for easy maintenance, the VM-1020 Series combines capability with functionality in an easy to use display system.
