Louisiana Tech updates scoreboard with Daktronics
Daktronics has been chosen by Louisiana Tech University in Ruston, LA, to design, manufacture and install a new light emitting diode (LED) video and scoring system at Joe Aillet Stadium, home of Bulldogs football.
Louisiana Tech’s new HD-X display board will be the largest in the Western Athletic Conference, measuring 25ft x 45ft. The 16mm board’s technology and its control system will allow for complete flexibility in programming. The video board will be capable of operating as a single giant display or divided into multiple zones to show a wide variety of statistics, information, graphics, animation and live and recorded video.
Two Daktronics 23mm video displays, each measuring approximately 4ft x 45ft, will also be installed. A custom LED scoreboard will add to the environment at the opposite end of the stadium.
Along with the visual system, Daktronics will also install a custom Sportsound sound system. When combined with the scoreboard and video display options, Daktronics will deliver pounding bass energy, smooth mid and high range frequencies and high impact entertainment through the integration of audio, video and scoring technologies.
