South Dakota School of Mines and Technology installs Daktronics video display and marquee

South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SD Mines) in Rapid City, South Dakota, is kicking off the 2017 football season with a new LED video display at O’Harra Stadium, as well as a marquee display manufactured and installed by Daktronics.

“Partnerships and branding with Daktronics elevates our game-time experience for our fans and scholar-athletes,” said SD Mines athletics director Joel Lueken. “We couldn’t be happier with our scoreboard.”

The new display measures 20.5ft high by 35ft wide and includes a 15HD pixel layout for image clarity and contrast. It is capable of variable content zoning.

The school’s new marquee display measures 5.5ft high by 12ft wide with 15mm line spacing, and is capable of full-color imagery and graphics.

“Daktronics appreciates the opportunity to once again partner with SD Mines for these display upgrades at O’Harra Stadium,” said Matt Warnke, Daktronics sales representative.

“This technology will help in taking the game-day environment to the next level. We look forward to the football season and the 2018 track season to see the impact of these displays.”

In addition, a game clock/running clock will be installed for the football and track seasons measuring 4ft high by 14ft wide. Two play clocks will cap off the stadium’s upgrades to keep fans immersed in the action throughout each event.

SD Mines will also receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services at the request of the school.
