Jacksonville State University has unveiled a new LED video display system at Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium. The new installation was designed, manufactured and implemented by Daktronics, and was showcased at the Jacksonville State Gamecocks game against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels last weekend.
“The new state-of-the-art digital video board is a great enhancement to JSU Stadium,” explained JSU athletic director Greg Seitz. “JSU is committed to giving its great fans the best game-day experience possible, and with the installation of the largest video board in the Ohio Valley Conference, we are thrilled with the results.”
The new video display measures approximately 12ft high by 80ft wide and features a 13HD pixel layout – this is the same technology showcased at Auburn University, home of the largest video display in college football. The technology brings wide-angle visibility to every seat in the stadium, and industry-leading environmental protection to ensure consistent performance even when subjected to the elements.
The display is also capable of variable content zoning – showing one large image or divided into several zones to show a combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
“We’re proud to extend our long-standing partnership with JSU Athletics for this new video display upgrade,” said Glen Marts, Daktronics sales representative. “This new installation replaced the previous system we installed 10 years ago. I was excited to see what the new display brought to the already great atmosphere at Burgess-Snow Field at JSU Stadium.”
Part of the partnership includes Daktronics’ Show Control System. This industry-leading system provides a combination of display control software, video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
In addition to the new football video display, the university also opted to upgrade its fixed-digit scoreboard at JSU Soccer Field. Installed this summer, the soccer scoreboard provides fans with statistics and information, including game time, score, shots, saves and more.
