Daktronics To Install Mountain West’s Largest Single LED Video Display for University of New Mexico
When the University of New Mexico (UNM) football team returns to the gridiron at Branch Field at University Stadium in Albuquerque, NM, this fall, it will be greeted with the largest single LED video display in the Mountain West. The LED video display will be designed and manufactured by Daktronics of Brookings, SD, and installed in August of 2013. The new display will measure 32 feet high by 80 feet wide and feature a 15HD pixel layout.
“This LED display is an important and necessary step in pushing Lobo football and our game-day experience in University Stadium to a new level,” said Paul Krebs, Vice President for Athletics, UNM. “More improvements are on the way as we hope to announce a major upgrade to our in-venue Wi-Fi capability later this summer. We are committed to enhancing the overall fan experience and strongly encourage Lobo fans to purchase season tickets, attend every home game and turn Branch Field into one of the top home-field advantages in the Mountain West.”
The university will use the video display to energize its fans with live video and instant replays. UNM will be able to separate the display into smaller sections to provide up-to-the-minute statistics, scoring information, and other graphics and animations.
The wide angle capability of the display will offer every fan a superb view of all the content shown. It will incorporate excellent image clarity and contrast in the harshest viewing scenarios while also offering multiple levels of protection from the elements.
“The University of New Mexico was looking for a premier LED video display to reward its dedicated fans with an elevated game-day experience, and we worked with its athletic department to fit its needs,” said Brady Jacobsen, Daktronics sales representative. “We’re excited for the upcoming installation and can’t wait to see the display in action this fall.”
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.
