San Jose Earthquakes install Daktronics A/V system
The San Jose Earthquakes opened their MLS season with a new integrated LED video and scoring system designed and manufactured by Daktronics.
The system, along with a custom sound system, is installed on their home field on the campus of Santa Clara University. It features the latest Daktronics LED video technology with the capabilities to present live and recorded video images, colorful animation and vivid graphics with incredible brightness and wide-angle visibility. The video display is approximately 19ft by 15ft with pixels on 23mm spacing.
The custom Sportsound solution designed and built for the Earthquakes includes a premanufactured, self-contained speaker system weighing more than half a ton. The new state-of-the-art cabinet uses a single point source, which provides smooth and even coverage throughout the entire facility.
The scoring, timing, video, messaging and sound components will be integrated through a Daktronics control system.
