Daktronics Builds Largest High School Video Display in Welasco, TX
Football fans in Weslaco, Texas, wrapped up their season at Bobby Lackey Stadium in November, which features the largest LED video display in high school sports. Daktronics designed and manufactured the landmark installation.
At 36 ft. high by 66 ft. wide, the display features a 15HD pixel layout, stands as tall as a telephone pole and as long as a bowling lane. It delivers the resolution, brightness, and viewing angles ideal for the 12,000+ fans attending football games.
“This display is as impressive in capability as it is in size. The functionality and uses are endless,” says Kyle Sydow, Daktronics high school sports and recreation market manager. “Daktronics is proud to be part of this phenomenal installation. Texas has great passion for football, and that’s reflected in the technology they chose.”
The display sees frequent use as Weslaco and Weslaco East High Schools share the stadium for football, track and field, soccer, commencement, and graduation ceremonies. Regional Special Olympics and youth football leagues also make use of the stadium.
“Weslaco is a repeat customer with an impressive handle on digital technologies for their many events,” says Pete Vela, Daktronics south Texas sales representative. “The skill they show during game days and Friday nights leads the area.”
