The launch of Monterey Bay F.C. in USL Championship this season was boosted by Cardinale Stadium upgrades, as Daktronics was brought in to upgrade the fan experience with a new LED video display and audio system.
The display was installed this spring and is currently engaging and entertaining audiences for soccer and other special events.
“We are thrilled to partner with Daktronics, they were wonderful to work with,” said Monterey Bay F.C. President Mike DiGiulio via press release. “The LED video display is a focal point of our stadium. It creates an amazing atmosphere here on game days, and we look forward to utilizing the display to entertain our fans for years to come.”
The LED video display measures approximately 17 feet high by 32 feet wide and features 15-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver sharper image clarity and contrast to fans in every seat. It features advanced environmental protection, ensuring it operates as expected in the California outdoors.
The display is capable of variable content zoning, allowing it to show all the expected video and content at every event. This includes one large image or multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
“We are anticipating one of the best game-day environments in the USL at Cardinale Stadium in Seaside, California,” said Eric Cain, Daktronics sales representative, via press release. “To complement the large video display and scoring system, Daktronics is also installing a robust audio system that will provide high-end sound for the entire stadium seating bowl and additional speakers in the beer garden, entry gates and VIP suite.”
The new audio system will be integrated into the video and scoring system at Cardinale Stadium. It provides full-range sound reproduction and clear, intelligible speech for a powerful audio experience for fans and audiences at every event.
In addition to the equipment installation, Monterey Bay F.C. will also receive a content package that will be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services.
