Daktronics (Brookings, S.D.) has continued a long-standing relationship with the University of Georgia to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display and Show Control System for Sanford Stadium. The new technology was installed prior to the G-Day Spring Game and will be fully debuted in the fall for the 2018 football season.
“We continue to value our long-standing relationship with Daktronics for our LED technology, event production and digital content,” said Josh Brooks, deputy athletic director—operations, University of Georgia. “They have continued to provide Georgia Athletics with the highest quality of service and support, which is extremely important to us as we put on the best game-day production for our student-athletes and fans.”
The new end zone display features a 13HD pixel layout, the same technology used by many professional football teams. The Bulldogs display measures 52 feet high by 100 feet wide, a full 30 percent larger than the previous display—bringing a massive visual experience to fans, student-athletes and coaches, alike. It provides crisp, clear imagery with wide angle visibility to every seat in the stadium.
The new Daktronics Show Control System allows the new display to be used as one large canvas or divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replay, real-time statistics, graphics and sponsorship messages.
Some of the new functionality showcased during the G-Day Spring Game included key/fill, transitions between the different video looks and sources, as well as creating transitions from full video to a live squeeze back revealing the full canvas below. The show had more of a broadcast-type feel and was received well by the university, building on the excitement for what is yet to come this upcoming football season.
