Lewis and Clark Park Introduces New Daktronics Video Display
BROOKINGS, S.D. – June 24, 2016 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has been asked by the Sioux City Explorers baseball team to design, manufacture and install a new video display for Mercy Field at Lewis and Clark Park in Sioux City, Iowa. The new outfield display was completed in May and is entertaining fans at games this summer.
"It has been a true pleasure working with the team from Daktronics," said Matt Adamski, president of the Explorers. "From the initial talks with our sales rep through installation and training, we couldn't have had a better partner in putting up our display. The entire Explorers organization and our fans are thrilled to have the new board as a focal point in our stadium."
The display has a 15HD pixel layout and measures approximately 19 feet high by 36 feet wide. It provides excellent image quality and contrast with wide angle visibility and industry-leading environmental protection. It also features variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image across the entire display or also be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replay, game stats and sponsor advertisements.
A decorative backlit panel with the Explorers logo illuminated on both sides was also included with the installation at Mercy Field.
"Daktronics appreciates the opportunity to provide our state of the art solution for a new video display at Mercy Field, Home of the Sioux City Explorers," said Matt Warnke, Daktronics sales representative. "This new display will provide for an enhanced game-day experience for all in attendance during this season and beyond."
In addition to the equipment installation, the Explorers will receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services. This content will consist of a mixture of sponsorship messages, crowd prompts, headshots, game opens and venue announcements at the request of the team.
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.
