Duane Banks Field receives new LED video display

BROOKINGS, S.D. -- Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, continues a partnership with the University of Iowa by designing, manufacturing and installing a new LED video display at Duane Banks Field in Iowa City, Iowa. The new display was installed in March and brings more than 800 square feet of video display space to Hawkeyes baseball.

“The new Sharp Family Video Board is a welcomed addition to our facility at Duane Banks Field,” said University of Iowa Head Coach Rick Heller. “The clarity and picture are exceptional and everyone around the program is excited about how much it enhances the game-day experience.”

The new LED video display measures approximately 21.5 feet high by 38.5 feet wide and features a 15HD pixel layout for crisp, clear imagery. It incorporates wide angle visibility to appeal to every seat at the ballpark. It also features variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to show multiple windows which can feature any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information, statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsor messages.

“It’s an honor to continue our partnership with the University of Iowa to provide a new LED display for Duane Banks Field,” said Daktronics Sales Representative Joey Hulsebus. “This display will elevate the game-day experience for Hawkeyes fans by bring an extra element of excitement at every game. We’re excited to see the display making a difference for the team as the season begins.”
