BROOKINGS, S.D., Nov. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics (NASDAQ:DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, announces its new Media Kit Building Blocks, an innovation of the standard media kit offering for LED technology.

"Capturing attention and creating consumer engagement is more challenging today than ever before," said Gina Kuck, Daktronics Commercial Creative Services manager.

Statistics show that graphics catch human attention quicker and increase memory recall better than text on its own. The ability to layer graphic elements with any still or animated background and then pair with text enables businesses to create content that motivates consumers.

"Media kit building blocks help businesses efficiently create unbeatable and personalized content for their LED displays," said Kuck. "At last, we are giving the display owner more time to focus on running their business and meeting their advertising and business goals."

In an active market, businesses are not only competing with other business, but also constant external stimulation.

"Graphics play a significant part in our current culture's communication style and the way consumers expect to be engaged. That's why Daktronics created media kit building blocks," added Kuck.

Daktronics is taking an additional step by providing a best practices guideline to maximize the use of this media kit, helping win the glance with more customized messaging. Daktronics focused heavily on the niches that have embraced LED technology - financial, houses of worship and healthcare as examples. Holiday and seasonal graphic elements are included to ensure messages stay fresh and timely. An area of particular excitement is the ongoing development of graphic elements in the coming quarters.

All of the content is available to customers with a Galaxy GS6 or DVX display at least 40+ pixels high.
