Tucker Stadium, Tennessee Tech University, has new LED displays engineered and installed by Daktronics. The company will implement a new sound system to add to the game-day experience at the stadium. Installations will be revealed when the football team kick off their home schedule Thursday, 8 September.
Mark Wilson, Tennessee Tech Director of Athletics explained: “The game-day experience for Golden Eagle fans will be enhanced significantly with the video and audio system from Daktronics, I appreciate the work of everyone involved in this project and share the excitement of our student-athletes, coaches, recruits and fans.”
The new end zone display will measure 30 feet high by 80 feet wide and an upper ribbon-style display mounted above the end zone display will measure 5 feet high by 83 feet wide. Both displays will feature 16-millimetre line spacing to bring excellent image clarity and contrast to fans throughout the seating bowl of the stadium.
Kyle Adams, Daktronics region manager said: “We are excited for Tennessee Tech to unveil the new system this fall at Tucker Stadium, It will be a very dynamic addition to the stadium and the fans all over Tennessee will be able to enjoy it for years to come.”
The main display is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple windows. It can show any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
A custom outdoor audio system will be integrated with the video and scoring system at Tucker Stadium. It will provide full-range sound reproduction and deliver clear and intelligible speech for a powerful audio experience. Fixed-digit scoreboards are included in the installation to ensure fans receive all the pertinent game-day statistics they expect throughout the game. Locker room clocks are also being installed to keep players and coaches informed while away from the field.
