Jacksonville State University has unveiled its new LED video display technology inside Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium.
The giant Daktronics screen was showcased in a football game against Liberty University when the Gamecocks hosted the Eastern Kentucky Colonels.
The new video display measures roughly 12ft high by 80ft wide and features a 13HD pixel layout – the same technology as used at Auburn University, home of the largest video display in college football.
The technology brings wide-angle visibility to appeal to every seat in the stadium as well as industry-leading environmental protection to ensure consistent performance in the outdoor elements.
The display is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
JSU Athletic Director Greg Seitz said:
The new state-of-the-art digital video board is a great enhancement to JSU Stadium. JSU is committed to giving its great fans the best game-day experience possible, and with the installation of the largest video board in the Ohio Valley Conference, we are thrilled with the results.
Glen Marts, Daktronics sales representative, added:
We’re proud to extend our long-standing partnership with JSU Athletics for this new video display upgrade. This new installation replaced the previous system we installed 10 years ago. It was excited to see what the new display brought to the already great atmosphere at Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium.
Also included with the installation was Daktronics powerful Show Control System. This industry-leading system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
In addition to the football video display, the university opted to upgrade their fixed-digit scoreboard at JSU Soccer Field.
Installed this summer, the soccer scoreboard provides fans with all the critical statistics and information for every event including game time, score, shots, saves and more.
