Daktronics to Update Astros’ Display System



Daktronics Inc. (Brookings, SD) will design, manufacture and install a multimillion dollar, integrated, video-display system at Houston s Minute Maid Park, home of MLB’s Houston Astros.
The video-display system, featuring a 1,080-line, high-definition video display, will be installed before the start of the 2011 season.
The main, 54 x 124-ft., 1,080-line, high-definition video display will be located in rightfield. A 24 x 40-ft. auxiliary display will be installed in leftfield.
Both the main and auxiliary video displays will utilize Daktronics newest 15mm LED technology, featuring a tighter resolution and improved image quality. The videoboard can operate as a single, giant display or be divided into multiple zones (windows) to show statistics, information, graphics, animation, and live and recorded video.
A 4 x 1,000-ft. Daktronics digital ribbon display, will also stretch from foul pole to foul pole. A similar display, measuring 4 x 188-ft., will be located under the main video display. Both ribbon displays, which will utilize 20mm LED technology, can show game information, real-time team and player statistics, animations and cropped video clips. These displays can also promote sponsors.
Also included in the project is Daktronics’ new Show Control system, which provides a combination of display-control software, video processing, data integration, and playback hardware.
