A new light emitting diode (LED) video display will entertain and engage fans at Eccles Coliseum on the campus of Southern Utah University this fall. The display will be designed, manufactured and installed by Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq-DAKT) of Brookings, S.D.
“The display will mean some big changes to the experience people have at Eccles Coliseum,” Athletic Director Ken Beazer said. “We are excited to see our new display utilized in September. We chose Daktronics based on their experience in the industry, cutting-edge technology and understanding of the importance of high-quality game-day presentation.”
The display incorporates excellent clarity and contrast of video images, multiple levels of protection from the elements and a more robust cabinet design with an improved ventilation system. It will measure nearly 19 feet high by 40 feet wide and feature pixels spaced at 20mm. The display will be capable of showing live video and instant replay during games, as well as colorful animations, vivid graphics and eye-catching advertisements.
“We are happy to be able to work with Southern Utah University on this project,” Melissa Fjeldheim, Daktronics Sales, said. “The new display will offer Thunderbirds fans a great experience and keep them on their feet.”
Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology offers a long lifetime with minimal maintenance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
