Mississippi State University Adding Nearly 20,000 Square Feet of Daktronics LED Displays to Football, Baseball Venues

Seven new LED displays added to Davis Wade Stadium and Dudy Noble Field at Polk-Dement Stadium in 2022

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Oct. 27, 2022 – The visual experience at Mississippi State games this season has been enhanced in a big way as Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, continued a long-standing partnership with Mississippi State University to deliver nearly 20,000 square feet of LED displays to campus near Starkville, Mississippi. Baseball completed the installation of a new ribbon display earlier this year and football was completed earlier this fall.

“We are pleased to continue our long-standing partnership with Daktronics to enhance the in-venue experience at both Davis Wade Stadium and Dudy Noble Field,” said Rhett Hobart, Executive Senior Associate AD for External Affairs at Mississippi State. “As we continue to work to provide a pre-eminent experience for students, fans and our teams, the addition of these new displays have provided significant enhancements to our in-venue production.”

Davis Wade Stadium Upgrades

Mississippi State’s football stadium received two new end zone displays and four new ribbon displays on the seating fascia as part of this project. This includes a north end zone display measuring approximately 55 feet high by 141.5 feet wide and a south end zone display measuring roughly 51.5 feet high by 129.5 feet wide, both featuring 10-millimeter pixel spacings.

The seating fascia includes an upgrade of four ribbon displays, three sections work together on the north side of the field with another display on the west fascia. The three displays on the north side each measure nearly 5 feet high by 138 feet wide and the west display measures nearly 5 feet high by 372 feet wide. All four displays feature 10-millimeter line spacing to show excellent image clarity and contrast to fans throughout the stadium.

Dudy Noble Field at Polk-Dement Stadium

The university’s baseball stadium received a new ribbon display wrapping along the seating fascia behind home plate. Installation took place early in 2022 and the new display measures approximately 3.5 feet high by 476.5 feet long. It features a 10-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver additional statistics, graphics and sponsorship messaging throughout events.

“These new displays will deliver on the needs for brightness and service aspects that will ultimately help Mississippi State be successful in their entertainment efforts at their facilities,” said Perry Grave, Daktronics sales representative. “The existing structure was able to be used to give an additional cost savings for the university, something that doesn’t go unnoticed in projects of this magnitude. We’re excited to be able to meet those needs and to be a part of this exciting project for our long-time partners at Mississippi State.”
