GREENVILLE, IL, December 10, 2017 – Blue Tiger fans at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, MO watched in awe as the football team roared into the Dwight T. Reed Stadium this past fall. With the addition of their new Nevco LED Video Display, Scoring and Audio Solution, fans attending football games had an extra 46,000 reasons to cheer the Blue Tigers onto victory.
The focal point of the scoring solution is a full color LED Video Display that stretches over 18’ wide, and possesses multiple abilities to ease game-day operations including variable content zoning, which allows for one large image to be shown on the entire screen, or for multiple zones of the display to show any combination of live in-game video. Eye-catching animations, instant replays and sponsorship messages will further enhance Blue Tiger fans’ game-day experience in over 46,000 pixels.
“It was a pleasure to work with Lincoln University to make their vision for Dwight T. Reed Stadium a reality. The power of a new video & audio solution for this facility will impact the community as a whole – bringing together athletes, fans, and school supporters,” says Eric Light, Nevco Director of Sports Video Sales.
The video display sits above a Nevco Model 7688 Scoreboard that includes interchangeable Electronic Team Names and Intelligent Captions™, which allow the Tigers to customize the home and guest team names for every team that plays at the stadium, and easily switch between sport modes with the touch of a button.
The Nevco Stadium Pro™ 1000 rests discreetly above the video display with a personalized imprinted front mesh face scrim, proudly displaying the University’s name, and subwoofers to reinforce sound. From pre-game music, player introductions, and complementary HYPE graphics to support the announcer’s commentary, the new video display, scoring and audio solution will leave an impressionable impact on all visitors at the stadium.
Lincoln University worked with Nevco to include attractive accents to the structure with the addition of non-illuminated signs flanking the displaying showcasing their mascot, and sponsor signage underneath the scoreboard. Completing the scoring solution is an arched sign with custom imprinted mascot artwork.
“Enhancing the game-day atmosphere was our ultimate goal for Lincoln University and Nevco went above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined. With the new Nevco Video Display, Scoring and Audio Solution, we can now deliver the most positive experience for every fan, every game,” says John Moseley, Director of Athletics at Lincoln University. “The decision to partner was easy – they helped us bring our vision to life.”
