New LED Displays Headed to Mississippi State University from Daktronics
Soccer and volleyball venues slated for video display upgrades in 2018
BROOKINGS, S.D. – May 22, 2018 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has continued a long-standing relationship with Mississippi State University to provide two new LED video displays on campus in 2018. Bulldog soccer and volleyball fans will see the visual improvements at home games this fall as Mississippi State Soccer Field and Newell-Grissom Building are receiving new technology.
"The installation of new videoboards at soccer and volleyball will provide an enhanced game-day experience for our fans and student-athletes," MSU Director of Athletics John Cohen said. "We're thrilled to partner with Daktronics as we continue to elevate the Mississippi State brand at our venues."
The new display at Mississippi State Soccer Field will measure 18 feet high by 32 feet wide and will feature a 15HD pixel layout with wide angle visibility to bring crisp, clear imagery to Bulldog fans at every game. It features industry-leading environmental protection to survive the elements while operating as expected.
Inside at Newell-Grissom Building, Bulldog volleyball fans will be looking at a new display measuring 10.5 feet high by 16.5 feet wide featuring an in-ward curvature to add extra appeal. It will feature 6-millimeter line spacing to provide an excellent picture with great contrast. Additionally, stat panels will be installed on each side of the main display to keep fans informed during the match.
"These installations expand the LED video technology on campus for the Mississippi State Bulldogs, their student-athletes and fans," said Andrew Rice, Daktronics sales representative. "They will be game changers in terms of the overall fan experience at volleyball and soccer matches. We're looking forward to seeing the impact when the displays are up and running later this year."
Each display is capable of variable content zoning allowing them to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
In addition to the LED products being installed, the Bulldogs will also receive digital content from Daktronics Creative Services to help bring the displays to life. Content will be produced and delivered at the request of the university.
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.
