Campbell University of Buies Creek, North Carolina, has asked Daktronics to design, manufacture and install a LED video display for the university’s home to baseball, Jim Perry Stadium. Installation was completed this spring and the display is providing excitement and entertainment for Fighting Camels baseball fans. A dedication ceremony was held before the game on June 4.
“This Carlie C’s video board is a complete game-changer for the experience of fans at Campbell and Buies Creek Astros baseball games,” said Campbell Athletics Director Bob Roller in a release on the university’s website.
The video display measures approximately 23 feet high by 35 feet wide and features a 15HD pixel layout. It’s placed in the outfield and replaces the fixed-digit display that was previously used. The new display provides excellent image clarity and contrast with wide angle visibility while also incorporating industry-leading environmental protection.
The display features variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image across the entire display or it can also be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsor advertisements.
A Sportsound® 1500HD audio system, which will be integrated with the video and scoring system, will also be added to the stadium. The system provides full-range sound reproduction and delivers clear and intelligible speech. The 1500HD provides a powerful audio experience for the fans. Daktronics audio offers high-quality audio systems that can integrate with dynamic displays in indoor and outdoor sport venues.
“We are proud and very excited for the installation at Jim Perry Stadium,” said Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. “The scoreboard and support structure are both very impressive. Campbell University is a great partner that we’ve enjoyed working with for many years. We’re looking forward to seeing this project enhance the game-day experience for many years to come.”
In addition to the equipment installation, the university will also receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services. This content will consist of any mixture of sponsorship messages, crowd prompts, headshots, game opens and venue announcements at the request of the facility.
