Date Announced: 19 Mar 2009 -- M Resort Spa Casino Shines with Daktronics LED Video SignageBROOKINGS, S.D. –- What would Las Vegas’ newest billion dollar casino resort be without dynamic LED signage? That’s exactly what M Resort Spa Casino officials pondered last fall before they contracted and purchased two outdoor LED video displays and ProPixel® freeform video elements for two channel letter logo displays from Daktronics Inc. (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., the world’s leader in LED displays.Measuring approximately 24-feet-high by 38-feet-wide, installers placed two LED video displays back-to-back on the M Resort’s front entrance pylon marquee. Prior to the March 1st grand opening, display operators advertised the date with pre-recorded video and animations. The M Resort plans to use the display primarily for on-premise property advertising.Not to be outdone, Daktronics ProPixel® freeform video puck elements illuminate two 44-feet-tall channel letter displays placed on opposite ends and sides of the M Resort’s 400-feet-tall tower. Perfect for unconventional shapes, ProPixel® elements can be added anywhere architects desire an artistic video effect.Daktronics video technology helps enhance gaming facilities themes and provides incredible ambiance that keeps guests returning.
