Are large operational groups with multiple stadia and arenas in their portfolios doing enough to address sustainability issues, or should the onus lie with individual venues to reduce their environmental footprint?

Events DC adds Daktronics LED display to RFK Stadium

Daktronics partnered with Events DC to update the outdoor LED video display at Robert F Kennedy Memorial Stadium (RFK Stadium), home to MLS side DC United, in Washington DC. Installed late in 2016, the display is currently installed and ready to entertain audiences for any number of events held at the venue.

“It’s been a pleasure working with Daktronics on the installation of the new video board and we are proud to be a continued partner,” says Candace G Johnson, director of event operations of sports, entertainment, and special events at Events DC. “We have a long-standing relationship with Daktronics, more than 15 years, so when it was time to replace our video board, it only made sense to look to them. We look forward to continuing our great relationship.”

The video display stretches 23ft high by 32ft wide and features a 15HD pixel pitch for excellent image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility to appeal to every seat in the stadium. Keeping with industry expectations, this display features variable content zoning, which allows it to show one large image or different content in multiple zones such as live video, instant replays, scoring information, statistics, graphics and sponsor messaging.

“We’re excited to partner with RFK Stadium on this project and it is great to be part of such a historical venue,” says Charley Bocklet, Daktronics regional sales manager. “This new LED system will bring another level of excitement to fans and improve the experience of the games first-hand.”

In addition to the display, a Daktronics Control System was included in the installation at RFK Stadium, offering user-friendly display control software, world-renowned video processing, data integration and playback hardware.
