Daktronics Bringing Larger-Than-Life Baseball Experience to the University of South Carolina
New LED display will be top 10 in college baseball
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Dec. 14, 2018 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has continued a partnership with the University of South Carolina to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display for Founders Park in Columbia, South Carolina. The display will be installed early in 2019 and will total 1,450 square feet, top 10 in size for college baseball displays.
"In working with our multimedia rights holder, IMG College, we were able to secure a video board that will be beneficial to our program and add to the game-day experience at Founders Park," said South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner. "The LED video display will be easy to see throughout the ballpark and we will be able to add quality content that will be enjoyable for fans."
The new display will measure approximately 33.5 feet high by 43 feet wide and will feature a 13HD pixel layout to bring exceptional image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility to Gamecock fans seated throughout the stadium.
"Founders Park is a great collegiate baseball stadium and we're excited to be a part of this scoreboard project," said Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. "It's always a pleasure working with everyone at the University of South Carolina. The new video display will be nearly 3.5 times larger than the current video display so we can't wait to see it in action and how Gamecock fans react to the new addition."
The display is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to share live video, instant replays, statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
