Weslaco, Texas, Home to Nation's Largest High School Video Display
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Dec. 5, 2018 – Football fans in Weslaco, Texas, wrapped up their season at Bobby Lackey Stadium in November, which features the largest LED video display in high school sports. Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, designed and manufactured the landmark installation.
At 36 feet high by 66 feet wide, the display features a 15HD pixel layout, stands as tall as a telephone pole and as long as a bowling lane. It delivers the resolution, brightness and viewing angles ideal for the 12,000+ fans attending football games.
"This display is as impressive in capability as it is in size. The functionality and uses are endless," said Kyle Sydow, Daktronics high school sports and recreation market manager. "Daktronics is proud to be part of this phenomenal installation. Texas has great passion for football, and that's reflected in the technology they chose."
The display sees frequent use as Weslaco and Weslaco East High Schools share the stadium for football, track and field, soccer, commencement, and graduation ceremonies. Regional Special Olympics and youth football leagues also make use of the stadium.
"Weslaco is a repeat customer with an impressive handle on digital technologies for their many events," said Pete Vela, Daktronics south Texas sales representative. "The skill they show during game days and Friday nights leads the area."
Built to entertain for years to come, Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology features industry-leading environmental protection to ensure a long lifetime for the display with consistent performance and low power consumption.
