New Daktronics video display lights up Monterey Bay FC matches

More than 500 square feet of digital space and full audio system added to Cardinale Stadium

Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with Monterey Bay FC to design, manufacture and install a new LED video display and audio system at Cardinale Stadium in Seaside, California. The display was installed this spring and is currently engaging and entertaining audiences for soccer and other special events.

“We are thrilled to partner with Daktronics, they were wonderful to work with,” said Monterey Bay FC president Mike DiGiulio. “The LED video display is a focal point of our stadium. It creates an amazing atmosphere here on game days, and we look forward to utilising the display to entertain our fans for years to come.”

The LED video display measures approximately 17 feet high by 32 feet wide and features 15mm pixel spacing to deliver excellent image clarity and contrast to fans in every seat. It features industry-leading environmental protection ensuring it operates as expected in the California outdoors.

The display is capable of variable content zoning allowing it to show all the expected video and content at every event. This includes one large image or multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

“We are anticipating one of the best game-day environments in the USL at Cardinale Stadium in Seaside, California,” said Eric Cain, Daktronics sales representative. “To complement the large video display and scoring system, Daktronics is also installing a robust audio system that will provide high-end sound for the entire stadium seating bowl and additional speakers in the beer garden, entry gates and VIP suite.”

The new audio system will be integrated into the video and scoring system at Cardinale Stadium. It provides full-range sound reproduction and clear, intelligible speech for a powerful audio experience for fans and audiences at every event.

Daktronics included its powerful Show Control solution with this installation. This industry-leading system provides a combination of display control software, “world-class” video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.

In addition to the equipment installation, Monterey Bay FC will also receive a content package that will be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services.
