Oklahoma-Shaped Video Scoreboard Has Arrived at Love’s Field from Daktronics

University of Oklahoma softball brings state to life with LED technology

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Apr. 18, 2024 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with the University of Oklahoma to bring an Oklahoma-shaped video scoreboard to Love’s Field, the school’s new softball stadium in Norman. The project includes two backstop displays and two canopy displays and was installed ahead of the 2024 season.

Video Display Details

The custom-shaped video scoreboard in the outfield measures roughly 27 feet tall by 55 feet wide and features 10-millimeter pixel spacing. This allows for excellent image clarity and contrast with industry-leading environmental protection ensuring it operates as expected in Oklahoma weather. 

The main body of the display serves as the area for full video while the panhandle shares the line score. Together, the display is capable of variable content zoning, allowing it to show one large image or multiple zones of content including video, replays, statistics, game information, graphics, animations and sponsorship messages. 

“This is absolutely one of the more unique displays we’ve been fortunate to work on and we’re proud to continue our partnership with OU Athletics to make it happen,” said Perry Grave, Daktronics sales representative. “Adding something special to OU in their new home for softball is certain to bring fans a one-of-a-kind experience they simply can’t enjoy at any other venue. We’re excited to see it making an impact on game day for years to come.”

Additionally, backstop displays are located behind the batters on each side of home plate. These two displays each measure 2.5 feet high by 8.5 feet wide and feature 6-millimeter pixel spacing to bring extra digital space for graphics and animations, as well as space to highlight sponsors throughout events in a prominent location that will be visible on video during game streams and broadcasts.

Two canopy displays were also installed to deliver additional game-day content and sponsorship recognition. Each display measures approximately 3.5 feet high by 7 feet wide and features the same 10-millimeter pixel spacing as the main video scoreboard. 

Along with the canopy displays, two fixed-digit scoreboards track and share all the core statistics and game information to keep fans up to date.
