BROOKINGS, S.D. – May 22, 2015 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with Coastal Carolina University (CCU) to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display and scoreboard at Spring-Brooks Stadium in Conway, South Carolina. Chanticleer fans have been enjoying the new equipment since early 2015 when the installation was completed.
The new video display measures 13 feet high by 24 feet wide and features a 15HD pixel layout. It features variable content zoning to highlight one large image for live video and instant replays, or to section the display into multiple windows to show a variety of graphics, animations, up-to-the-minute statistics, sponsor messages and other game information.
The standard fixed-digit scoreboard measures more than 9 feet high by 36 feet wide and shows standard baseball statistical information such as runs, hits, errors, inning-by-inning scoring and more.
“We’re excited about this opportunity to build upon our longstanding relationship with Coastal Carolina University. It’s been a great partnership that spans nearly three decades now.” said Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. “The university has an outstanding baseball program and Spring-Brooks Stadium is amongst the country’s best collegiate baseball stadiums with this installation. The new scoreboard adds an extra entertainment element to the facility that enhances the game-day experience for the fans.”
Daktronics installed a custom distributed audio system that is integrated with the video and scoring system. The system provides full-range audio reproduction and delivers clear and intelligible speech for a powerful experience for fans.
In addition to the equipment installation, CCU will also be receiving a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced by Daktronics Creative Services, Daktronics in-house, award-winning creative team. Any mixture of content pieces will be created and delivered at the request of the university.
