Centerhung display to provide excitement for Canada entertainment facility
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Oct 1, 2014 – Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, will update their facility with a brand new centerhung video display system designed and manufactured by Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota. The new display will add even more entertainment value to the events held at the Rogers K-Rock Centre.
Rogers K-Rock Centre was in search for a company with a long-standing reputation and product reliability and chose Daktronics to help solve their display needs.
"Daktronics delivered on everything we required throughout our process - competitive pricing, manufacturing a state of the art system, reliable project management, system knowledge and training, and overall professionalism," said General Manager of Rogers K-Rock Centre Lynn Carlotto.
The main centerhung will include four video displays each measuring approximately over 6 feet high by 10 feet wide and featuring 6 millimeter line spacing. These displays will make a great addition to in-game action by being able to feature one large image to highlight live video and can be divided into separate windows to show a variety of vivid graphics, colorful animations, up-to-the-minute statistics and scoring information, and sponsor advertisements.
These video displays will incorporate excellent image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility to keep all fans caught up with the game action.
"Daktronics is excited to provide our custom designed 6 millimeter displays for the Rogers K-Rock Centre, "said Ryan Stratton, Daktronics Sales Representative.
