Daktronics Installs New LED Display at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology
South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SD Mines) in Rapid City, South Dakota, has welcomed a new LED video display at O’Harra Stadium as well as a new marquee display manufactured and installed by Daktronics. The new displays were installed before the start of the 2017 football season.
“Partnerships and branding with Daktronics elevates our game time experience for our fans and scholar-athletes,” says Joel Lueken, SD Mines Athletics Director. “We couldn’t be happier with our scoreboard.”
The new display measures 20.5 feet high x 35 feet wide and features a 15HD pixel layout for excellent image clarity and contrast. It is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or to show multiple zones of live video, instant replays, statistics, graphics and sponsorship messages.
Capable of full-color imagery and graphics, the school’s new marquee display measures 5.5 feet high x 12 feet wide with 15-millimeter line spacing to welcome fans and promote upcoming events and sponsors “Daktronics appreciates the opportunity to once again partner with SD Mines for these display upgrades at O’Harra Stadium,” says Matt Warnke, Daktronics sales representative. “This technology will help in taking the game-day environment to the next level. We look forward to the football season and the 2018 track season to see the impact of these displays.”
Additionally, a game clock/running clock will be installed for the football and track seasons measuring 4 feet high x 14 feet wide. Two play clocks will cap off the stadium’s upgrades to keep fans immersed in the action throughout each event.
SD Mines will also receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services at the request of the school.
