Daktronics Inc. (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, SD, the world’s leader in LED displays, has announced that the Company will provide the new M Resort, Spa and Casino with two outdoor LED video displays and ProPixel® freeform video elements for two channel letter logo displays.
Measuring approximately 24-feet-high by 38-feet-wide both LED video displays will be placed back-to-back on the M Resort’s front entrance pylon marquee. Positioned along South Las Vegas Boulevard at St. Rose Parkway, the M Resort plans to feature pre-recorded video and M Resort property advertising on the displays.

Daktronics ProPixel® freeform video puck elements will illuminate two 44-feet-tall channel letter displays placed on the side of the M Resort’s 400-feet-tall tower. Perfect for unconventional shapes, ProPixel® elements can be added anywhere an artistic video effect is desired.
