The University of Mississippi has chosen the Daktronics to design, manufacture and install integrated systems throughout their campus.
“We are excited about the new video boards for basketball, baseball and softball as well as new scoreboards for indoor and outdoor tennis,” says Ole Miss Senior Executive Associate Athletics Director John Hartwell. “Video and LED displays are an integral piece to our continued and concentrated effort to enhance the game day experience in all of our sports for our student-athletes, coaches and fans.”
C.M. Tad Smith Coliseum will see upgrades with a centerhung display, featuring four LED video displays measuring approximately seven feet high by 13 feet wide with 10 millimeter pixel layout. Two ring displays, featuring 15 millimeter pixel layout, are also part of the centerhung structure and will be able to show a variety of graphics, animations and statistical information. Overall the display will measure approximately 17 feet high by 24 feet wide and will also feature four dedicated scoring sections.
