BROOKINGS, S.D., March 10, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Jacksonville Jaguars have partnered with Daktronics (Nasdaq:DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., to manufacture and install the largest HD LED video displays in the world at each end zone of EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Fla. Each display will be long enough to reach just more than the distance from the goal post in one end zone to the goal post in the other end zone, and each display boasts more than 21,700 square feet of active display area – almost enough to cover the entire field of play when combined.

"As the construction takes shape, we can all envision what an impact this will have on EverBank Field and the game-day experience," said Jaguars Owner Shahid Khan, "and that was one of the reasons from the beginning for embarking on this ambitious project. We want EverBank Field to be a world-class destination, and we want to bring energy and attention to Downtown Jacksonville. Our goal is to offer best-in-class amenities and the best in-stadium experience for our fans and for everyone who visits Jacksonville and EverBank Field.""We owe our fans and this community nothing less than the best, and these enhancements will be the best," said Jaguars President Mark Lamping. "These stadium upgrades will drastically change the in-stadium experience and create a truly unique environment that you cannot get at home. This will be an eye-opener and an attention-getter for Jacksonville."
