Daktronics LED Video Display Installed at Harvard University

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Apr. 3, 2018 – The largest aquatics LED video display in New England is now at one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious universities, Harvard, of Cambridge, Massachusetts. The LED display, manufactured and designed by Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, was installed this winter alongside Blodgett Pool to bring an improved experience to aquatics events.

Measuring 16 feet tall by 28 feet wide, the video display features 6-millimeter line spacing to bring crisp, clear imagery to every seat in the venue. It is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to show multiple windows of content. Live video and instant replays can energize fans during events or event results and information, animations, and sponsorship messages can engage fans.

Daktronics technology features rigorous testing to ensure all aspects of the displays, including vital components, are protected from humidity, particles and other elements associated with pool environments.

"This is a great installation for a great institution in Harvard University," said Dave D'Amico, Daktronics sales representative. "The new visual elements available for aquatics events at Blodgett Pool are sure to bring an added level of engagement and entertainment for Crimson fans." 

Backlit panels surround the screen while two portable game clocks ensure perfect placement for water polo events.

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.
