Pitt State receives new ‘Jungletron’ video display at Carnie Smith Stadium


The Gorilla gameday experience at Pittsburgh State University is being enhanced for the upcoming season with a brand new videoboard installed at Carnie Smith Stadium.

A LED end zone display measuring 23ft high and 68.5ft wide with 1,560ft2 of video space will be unveiled this summer for the Division II football program.

“Showcasing the best game-day experience in NCAA Division II is extremely important. When the university debuted the “Jungletron” 11 years ago it set the bar for game-day experience at a Division II football game. Now, due to wear and tear over the course of time as well as the changes in technology this is an appropriate time to revitalize that tremendous game-day atmosphere with this new display,” said PSU athletic director Jim Johnson.

The display from Daktronics features 15HD pixel layout for an improved image clarity and contrast, as well as environmental protection for the outdoor venue.

A new custom scoreboard, new game clock, two new delay of game clocks and three new locker room clocks will also be included and integrated with the installation.
