Now that the 2016 pro and college football seasons are upon us, Brookings, South Dakota-based LED display manufacturer Daktronics reminds us of a busy off-season it had, with the installation of some 85 new displays it installed for seven NFL and 18 college teams.
The LED video display equipment the company installed totals 142,250 square feet.
U.S. Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings, and Raymond James Stadium, home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are rolling out new integrated “super systems,” while other sites, including Levi’s Stadium, home to the San Francisco 49ers, and EverBank Field, home to the Jacksonville Jaguars, have added auxiliary signage to their facilities to offer additional content during games.
In college football, 42 new displays at 18 different schools will be providing live video, instant replays, game intros and crowd prompts for the fans cheering on their teams.
These college installations include the second largest video display in a college-specific football stadium-at the University of Oklahoma-and the installation of digital audio faÃ§ades over the stadium’s speaker system, which is at Rice University.
