Daktronics Partners with University of South Carolina for Softball Video Display Installation
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Jan. 17, 2020 – When Gamecocks fans return to Carolina Softball Stadium at Beckham Field, they'll be welcomed by a new LED video display from Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota. The installation, including a fixed-digit scoreboard, will be completed before the 2020 season on campus in Columbia at the University of South Carolina.
"I'm excited to see the new video board go up," Gamecocks head coach Beverly Smith said. "I'd like to thank coach (Ray) Tanner and the administration. I think it's an example of their commitment to a first-class experience for the student-athletes and our fans."
The new video board features industry-leading through-hole LED technology at 13HD pixel spacing to provide exceptional image clarity and contrast. It will measure 20.5 feet high by 36 feet wide and is capable of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
Variable content zoning allows the display to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show a variety of content at once. This outdoor display brings industry-leading environmental protection to ensure optimal operation during all forms of weather in South Carolina.
"This new video board will bring a new element of entertainment to Gamecocks softball games at Beckham Field and we're proud to continue our long-standing partnership with the University of South Carolina on this project," said Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. "Selecting the 13HD technology for this installation will bring the best game-day experience possible into their venue and we're looking forward to seeing it engaging and entertaining fans this softball season."
The installation includes a Daktronics fixed-digit scoreboard providing at-bat, ball, strike, out, inning scores, runs, hits and error information – all the information softball fans expect to see to keep them informed during the game.
Daktronics has grown with the sports industry from the company's beginnings in 1968.
