University officials visited football venues around the country to compare display technology and were very impressed with the brightness and overall quality of Daktronics 13HD LED video display product.

"As part of the redevelopment of Kyle Field, it was paramount to find the best technology available to showcase Texas A&M's unique in-game experience and traditions on game day," says Director of Athletics Eric Hyman. "We found that the Daktronics technology is highly regarded in the industry, and we look forward to a strong partnership in providing the 12 th Man an unparalleled experience in college football."  

Texas A&M is currently in the midst of a $450 million project to redevelop Kyle Field into the finest collegiate football stadium in the country. Capacity at the storied facility will increase to 102,500, with substantial completion in time for the 2015 season. More information about the project can be found at www.kylefield.com .                                  

This primary Daktronics display, to be installed in the south end zone, will incorporate the very latest in LED technology to provide excellent image clarity, contrast and wide angle visibility through its 13 HD pixel layout. It will incorporate multiple levels of protection from the elements.
