Daktronics HD display dazzles in Miami
Daktronics got major on-air exposure at this year's Super Bowl. A major provider of color LED video displays, Daktronics installed an HD scoring and video display system in Dolphin Stadium prior to the start of the 2006 NFL season. That made the stadium one of the only NFL venues to date to offer fans true HD video replay screens.
The multisports venue has two huge Daktronics HD LED displays, one behind each end zone — one measuring 50ft by 140ft, the other measuring 50ft by 100ft.
In addition, Dolphin Stadium also incorporates a full, 360-degree fascia display that completely circles the seating bowl. More than 9 million individual red, green and blue LEDs are included in the three displays.
Daktronics has announced a significant video display upgrade for the Pittsburgh Steelers in Heinz Field as well, which will use its new HD-X technology. Daktronics HD-X LED video displays, available in a wide variety of sizes and configurations, represent a new generation of large-screen technology.
The product line features a number of industry advances including a high-density pixel layout, improved contrast levels and enhanced viewing angles.
