Greenville Drive Teams Up With Daktronics For LED Video Display
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Apr. 18, 2016 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with the Greenville Drive of Greenville, South Carolina, to bring a large LED video display to Fluor Field at the West End. Daktronics designed, manufactured and installed the display this winter for the single-A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.
"We sincerely thank Daktronics for their assistance in the design and installation of this incredible new board at Fluor Field," said Eric Jarinko, Greenville Drive General Manager. "With crystal clear images, instant replays and graphics, the 'DriveVision' board is going to take our fan experience to a whole new level, and we couldn't be happier to have this as the centerpiece of Fluor Field for years to come."
Installed in right-center field, the display features a 15HD pixel layout and measures approximately 27.5 feet high by 49 feet wide.
