Troy University Upgrades Audiovisual Experience with Daktronics Products

New video displays and sound systems installed for baseball and softball

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Mar. 7, 2024 – A new view is coming to baseball and softball events for Troy University as Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with the university to design, manufacture and install LED video displays at Riddle-Pace Field and Troy Softball Complex in Troy, Alabama. The new displays and audio system are currently being installed for the university’s athletics and other special events.

"We always strive to improve and enhance the gameday experience across all our venues to provide the best possible environment for our fans and student-athletes," Troy Director of Athletics Brent Jones said via the university’s website. "The new video boards at Riddle-Pace Field and the Troy Softball Complex are the largest in the Sun Belt Conference and add a new and impressive dimension to the fan and student-athlete experience for Troy Baseball and Troy Softball. I am extremely appreciative of the support from Chancellor Hawkins and our fans to make this a reality."

Riddle-Pace Field System Details

Riddle-Pace Field received a new outfield LED video display measuring more than 21 feet high by nearly 71 feet wide. It features a 15HD pixel layout to deliver crisp, clear imagery with wide-angle visibility to appeal to fans in every seat. It also features industry-leading environmental protection ensuring is operates as expected in the Alabama weather.  

Integrated into the video and scoring system is a Sportsound® 1500HD audio system in center field within the backdrop of the batter’s eye. It supplements live events with a booming audio experience. It delivers full-range sound reproduction while providing clear, intelligible speech from announcers. 

Additionally, the stadium will receive a time-of-day clock, a pitch clock and a speed-of-pitch display flush mounted into the wall to the left and right of the video display. 

Troy Softball Complex System Details

Similar to baseball, Troy Softball Complex received a new LED display featuring a 15HD pixel layout. This display measures more than 15 feet high by nearly 28 feet wide and comes with all the same video and display capabilities as the display at Riddle-Pace Field.

The softball complex also received a sound system upgrade with a Sportsound® 500HD from Daktronics. This system also features booming audio with clear speech so fans and student-athletes can stay informed and keep up with every second of the action.

“This installation will bring a new excitement to Troy Athletics for baseball and softball in 2024,” said Glen Marts, Daktronics sales representative. “It’s an absolute privilege to continue our long-standing partnership with Troy University and we’re looking forward to seeing the excitement for fans and student-athletes alike as the seasons get underway in a few short weeks.”

Both LED video displays are capable of variable content zoning allowing each 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 and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
