Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota, reported that that long-time customer, the New England Patriots installed its 1.9-millimeter pitch LED video display at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The installation, which made its debut Sunday, will serve as a backdrop for Patriots’ press conferences. The New England Patriots intend to use the display that measures 5-feet by 10-feet with nearly 50 square feet of display space to highlight team-branded content and sponsors in press conferences. Daktronics contends that high-resolution video display combines the most efficient processing available with pure color reproduction. The display can add professional grade broadcast footage with sharp image quality and rich colors, according to Daktronics.
“Working with the reigning football champion New England Patriots has been a great experience,” said Jay Parker, Daktronics vice president of live events. “We’re excited to continue our long-standing partnership with the installation of Daktronics first 1.9 millimeter LED video solution. It brings an added level of flexibility to the Patriots’ press conferences and looked great during the first use this past weekend.”
“It’s an incredible new showcase tool for the team and their sponsors,” added Dave D’Amico, Daktronics sales representative on the project. “We have a great, successful partnership with the Patriots and look forward to what the future may bring.”
Gillette Stadium features several other Daktronics installations in 2015, including three large ribbon displays. One ribbon display is located along the eastern seating measures 3.6 feet high by 289 feet wide. Another ribbon display along the end zone measures 3.6 feet high by 240 feet wide. Other installations include a large video display that is 7.2 feet high by 30 feet wide, two smaller video displays measuring 7.2 feet high by 14.4 feet wide and another video display that is 19 feet high by 14 feet wide. All the displays feature a 15HD line spacing and wide-angle visibility, so any seat in the stadium gets a great view.
The stadium’s new video displays can use variable content zoning, allowing one large image or multiple zones filled with any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics, scoring information, sponsor advertisements, and animations.
These displays will join Gillette Stadium’s more than 10,000 square feet of previously installed Daktronics display equipment including existing facia displays and the main end zone displays. Freeform elements feature the stadium identification at each end of the field.
Daktronics indoor display’s rapid processing technology makes it ideal for extremely close, fast-moving video content. Daktronics designed the indoor display to manage heat, for added reliability, superior performance, and long lifetime.
