BROOKINGS, SD – September 1, 2010 – From July 29 - Aug. 1 golfers and enthusiasts gathered on the rolling greens of the historic Old White Course at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, W. Va., an official stop on the PGA Tour and host to some of the greatest golfers in the world.
Upstage Video, a Daktronics (Nasdaq-DAKT) rental partner and leading provider of modular video displays and mobile units, kept fans informed with a large-screen LED video display while they watched some of golf's most prominent players demonstrate their skills.
The 15' x 40' Daktronics video display, comprised of 50 modular PST-12HD LED panels, showed graphics, leaderboard, sponsorship messages and live television feeds from the GOLF CHANNEL and CBS Sports. In addition to the video display, Upstage Video also provided the graphics and signal distribution for the event.
Daktronics modular PST product line provides users with flexible, road-ready panels that quickly combine to form seamless video displays – adding excitement and personality to touring events of all shapes and sizes.
“The Daktronics panels do a nice job of cutting through sunlight, which is essential for events like The Greenbrier Classic,” said Doug Murray, President of Upstage Video. “Our client was beyond happy with the display's performance and they even noted that the clarity and brightness (of the display) in the sun was a noticeable improvement from others they have used.”
PST-12HD panels feature 7,000 nits of intensity, a revolutionary pixel layout for enhanced contrast, superior viewing angles and 19-bit image processing for industry-leading image quality making them the ideal choice for touring outdoor events such as the PGA Tour.
Fans in attendance got a special treat on the last day of The Greenbrier Classic, during the final round, Stewart Appleby, a 39-year old professional golfer from Australia, shot a 59 to win. Appleby became the fifth player in history to shoot a 59 in an official PGA Tour event and everyone in attendance got a close-up view on the big screen.
