Hickory Crawdads Gear Up for 2018 With New Daktronics LED Display
The Hickory Crawdads have turned to Daktronics to design, manufacture, and install a new LED video display early in 2018. The display will be installed in the outfield at L.P. Frans Stadium in Hickory, NC, before the first pitch of the upcoming season.
“The Crawdads are excited to continue our existing relationship with Daktronics and work with them on our new video board,” comments Mark Seaman, General Manager of the Hickory Crawdads. “We know Daktronics will deliver a first-class video board that will greatly enhance the game-day experience for Crawdad fans.”
The new display will measure 15.5 feet high by 54 feet wide and will feature a 15HD pixel layout. Positioned prominently in the outfield, it features wide angle visibility to bring crisp, clear imagery to fans in every seat inside L.P. Frans Stadium.
It is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
“We’re excited to build upon our existing partnership with the Hickory Crawdads,” says Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. “The new video display will be almost three times larger than their existing video display giving the team many more opportunities to engage their loyal fans. We’re looking forward to seeing the new scoreboard fired up for the first game.”
Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology features environmental protection for a long lifetime with consistent performance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
