M&T Bank Stadium upgrades to Daktronics LED video system
Daktronics will design, manufacture and install new large-screen video displays at M&T Bank Stadium, home of the NFL’s Baltimore Ravens.
The multimillion-dollar upgrade project includes two large end zone video displays, video processors and the company’s new Show Control system. The upgrade will dramatically lower energy usage by eliminating the need for 54 tons of cooling required by the old system.
Daktronics will provide its HD-16 LED video technology in the stadium, retrofitting it into the existing end zone structures. Each display will measure approximately 24ft by 100ft. HD-16 technology provides wide-angle viewing for better visibility for more fans, increased contrast and high image clarity with the ability to display 4.4 trillion shades of color.
Included in the upgrade project are Daktronics video image-processing technologies and the Show Control system. The control system provides a combination of control software, data integration and playback hardware that forms a single production solution.
