Idaho State University Upgrades Holt Arena With Daktronics Video Display

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Sept. 15, 2016 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, was asked by Idaho State University to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display and custom fixed-digit scoreboard for Holt Arena on campus in Pocatello, Idaho. The installation was recently completed with everything operational prior to the Bengals football season kicking off this fall.

"Idaho State Athletics is happy to partner with Daktronics on the new Idaho Potato Commission video board at Holt Arena," Athletic Director Jeff Tingey said. "This new audio and video platform is a game-changer for our fans. It represents a quantum leap forward in the fan experience at Holt Arena."

The new video display will measure 12 feet high by 39.5 feet wide and feature 10 millimeter line spacing to bring excellent image clarity and contrast at wide viewing angles to every seat inside the arena. The display is located behind the end zone on one end of the arena and the fixed-digit scoreboard is located behind the opposite end zone to show scoring, time remaining, statistics and other information fans expect at every game.

The video display is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image across the entire display or it can be divided into multiple zones to show any variety of live video, instant replays, statistics, graphics and sponsorship messages.

"It is exciting to provide new technology for Idaho State, and even better that we are able to impact two schools with one project by repurposing the previous display at American Falls High School," said Greg Schmidt, Daktronics sales representative. "The installation will have a great impact on Bengals fans at every football game and other events held at Holt Arena. We're proud to be a part of it and look forward to the start of the season."

The previous scoreboard will benefit American Falls High School. It was installed at the school's football field shortly after being removed from Holt Arena and will bring entertainment to fans and players in American Falls, Idaho.

Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology offers a long lifetime with consistent, industry-leading performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
