This facility recently underwent a $3.5 million expansion this past fall to include a total of more than 115,000 square feet of manufacturing space as a key component of Daktronics strategic business plan to handle projects of this magnitude. Employee excitement is soaring with the opportunity to build this project in Minnesota by Minnesotans.

This display features variable content zoning to show one large image or it can be zoned into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information and statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages. Two wing displays - one on each side of the main display - will measure roughly 43 feet high by 15 feet wide. These displays can supplement the main display or be joined with the main display to show one large image across the entire digital canvas for moments of extra emphasis and excitement. A 'skirt' display measuring roughly 9 feet high by 64 feet wide will be installed at the field level to provide additional opportunities for graphics and sponsorships throughout events. The east end zone is a mirror image of the west end zone where a main video display measuring roughly 50 feet high by 88 feet wide will serve as the focal point of the east end zone. Two wing displays, each measuring roughly 25 feet high by 15 feet wide, flank the main display. These displays all feature the same capabilities as those in the west end zone. Circling the seating fascia will be three ribbon displays, one attached to the upper concourse measuring approximately 3.5 feet high by 1,550 feet wide, one along the club level measuring approximately 2.5 feet high by 1,475 feet wide and one at the press level measuring approximately 5 feet high by 225 feet wide.

Eight sponsor displays measuring approximately 5 feet high by 35 feet wide will also be installed throughout the north side of the facility to bring additional recognition to sponsors and advertisers.
