Daktronics Contracted for New Video Displays at Keeneland
Daktronics (Brookings, SD) has announced that the company has been contracted to manufacture and install six new LED displays at Keeneland's racing facility in Lexington, KY. Five displays replaced existing signage with increased resolution, while a new display was also added to the racetrack’s paddock area.
The new main infield display now features a 15HD pixel layout, an increase in resolution from the 23-mm pixel layout display installed by Daktronics in 2006. It still measures approximately 38.5 x 19-ft. The four displays flanking the main video board each improved to 16-mm line spacings, again upgrading from the previous 23-mm technology. Each of these displays measures 38.5 x 9.5 ft.
New to the racecourse is a display with 6-mm line spacing in the paddock area. It measures 30 x 3.5 ft. and is used to share current odds, race information and other details surrounding the upcoming race. The five infield displays combine to share live video as well as current odds and information for current and upcoming races. All six displays can also be used for other events held at the racetrack including horse sales.
The new technology will be on display for the summer race meet on July 8-12 and when the Breeders’ Cup returns to Keeneland this fall.
