Washington Redskins Choose Daktronics to Provide Integrated LED Video System
Daktronics will install 15 mm video technology for the main video displays, measuring approximately 100 feet wide and 28 feet high. The wide screen displays will replace the existing traditional (4:3 aspect ratio) video displays and also replace two static displays. Daktronics video technology provides incredible wide angle viewing for better visibility for more fans, increased contrast, and superb image clarity with the ability to display 4.4 trillion shades of color.
The digital ribbon displays will measure approximately five feet high, with two measuring approximately 31 feet long and another pair measuring 15 feet long. Daktronics ribbon displays show game information and real-time team and player statistics, animations and cropped video clips to raise the crowd's interest and enthusiasm level. These displays can also be used in a variety of creative ways to recognize and activate sponsors. Also included in the upgrade project are Daktronics timing system and game clocks, video image processing technologies and the new Show Control system. The company's video processing system is touted by experts as the best in the industry, processing and scaling live and recorded video signal to vivid digital imagery on large displays. The Show Control system is the one of the latest developments from Daktronics, providing a power combination of control software, data integration, and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
