North Carolina State University Installs Daktronics Video Display at Carter-Finley Stadium

Carter-Finley Stadium, home to the North Carolina State University Wolfpack football team, now boasts a state-of-the-art light emitting diode (LED) video display provided by Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq-DAKT) of Brookings, S.D. The new video display was installed prior to the 2011 college football season.

Located above the north end zone, the 30 feet high by 88 feet wide display provides superb image clarity and wide-angle visibility for excellent viewing throughout the stadium. Featuring the latest industry-leading LED technology, the video board can operate as an independent display showing single large images or be divided in multiple zones (windows) to show a wide variety of statistics, information graphics, animations, sponsor information and live and recorded video.

Wolfpack fans are also informed of game in progress information by a reliable Daktronics custom scoreboard complete with low power, high-brightness LED digits and programmable team name displays.

Also included in the upgrade project are Daktronics video image processing technologies and the new Show Control system. The company’s LED video processing system is touted as the best in the industry, processing and scaling live and recorded video signal to vivid digital imagery on large LED displays. The Show Control system is one of the latest developments from Daktronics, providing a power combination of control software, data integration, and playback hardware.
