BROOKINGS, S.D. – Mar. 18, 2013 – Daktronics (Nasdaq – DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., announced today that they have been selected by the Denver Broncos and the Metropolitan Football District to design, manufacture and install an integrated LED display system at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

“Broncos fans deserve to have the best in-stadium experience we can possibly provide. These improvements will benefit fans on each level and in every section of the stadium,” said Andy Gorchov, General Manager of Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

New video displays featuring the latest in LED technology will replace the original systems at Sports Authority Field with a high definition display with 952 lines of resolution, measuring 40 feet high and 220 feet wide. Featuring a Daktronics HD pixel layout, all displays will have excellent image clarity and contrast, multiple levels of protection from the elements and a more robust cabinet design with an improved ventilation system. These new displays are capable of showing one large image to highlight live video and instant replays or can be divided into separate windows to show a variety of vivid graphics, colorful animations, up-to-the-minute statistics, scoring information and sponsor advertisements with outstanding brightness and wide-angle visibility.

Surrounding fans along the club level fascia will be a new 1,424-foot long LED ribbon display providing up-to-the-minute statistics and game information.

Daktronics will also be including its powerful Show Control System with this installation. Touted by experts as the best in the industry, the system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
