New Daktronics LED displays installed at UVA

Daktronics has installed new LED displays at the University of Virginia’s (UVA) Klockner Stadium and Disharoon Park in Charlottesville, Virginia.

A new main video display for soccer and lacrosse as well as a new ribbon display for baseball will entertain and inform Cavaliers fans in 2018.

At Klockner Stadium, a new main LED video display measuring 17ft high by 48ft wide was installed this summer. It features a 15HD pixel layout for exceptional image clarity and contrast while also featuring industry-leading environmental protection for outdoor operation.

At Davenport Baseball Field, the new LED ribbon display measures 3.5ft high by 56.5ft long to bring additional game-day elements to every event.

This display features the same 15HD pixel layout as the display at Klockner Stadium. It will be used to bring closed captioning to Cavalier baseball fans while also providing the opportunity to highlight sponsors throughout events.

Todd Goodale, UVA senior associate athletics director for external affairs said:

We’re excited to partner with Daktronics on the installation of the new displays in these venues.

The sports programmes that call Klockner Stadium and Disharoon Park home have combined to win 16 NCAA championships and I’m thankful Daktronics could help us improve the experience for our baseball, soccer and lacrosse fans.

The video display for soccer and lacrosse 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 replay, statistics and other game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
