San Angelo ISD Chooses Daktronics Time and Time Again
BROOKINGS, S.D. – September 16, 2015 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has teamed up with San Angelo ISD of San Angelo, Texas, to design, manufacture and install its new video display.
"Lightning had hit our original scoreboard and caused major problems. Daktronics was great with how they handled the service on the board, which is why we keep going back to Daktronics," said Jim Slaughter, retired athletic director of San Angelo ISD.
San Angelo ISD wanted better visibility for fans and players alike. Choosing the largest standard size and most cost effective video display, the school will receive the better visibility it is looking for and more.
"With our new project, we needed to have a plan in place to get the new equipment approved, so we used Daktronics Sports Marketing for this," said Slaughter. "They had a good seasoned team that came in to help at the meetings to find sponsors."
By funding the display using Daktronics Sports Marketing's customized approach, the school will raise $916 thousand over the first 10 years with 12 different partners. The school will receive $88 thousand over the first five years due to the revenue sharing plan.
This 23 foot high by 42 foot wide display brings the big league to San Angelo ISD's backyard. Ultra-wide viewing angles ensure every seat in the house can see the display clearly while full, rich images draw the crowd in. Instant replay, live video and player stats liven the game-day experience.
"We've enjoyed the relationship we've had with this school district and appreciate their request for our products time and time again. Adding this display to San Angelo ISD's field brings the home games to a new level," said Jim Hess, Daktronics sales representative. "The addition to this scoring system will have the fans and players leaving with an unforgettable experience."
Daktronics scoring systems offer a long lifetime with consistent, industry-leading performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
