Daktronics to Show New Acoustical Banner at USITT

BROOKINGS, S.D. – March 12, 2013 – Daktronics (Nasdaq – DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., will present their acoustical Banner hoist to attendees at the March 20 – 23 United States Institute for Theatre Technology (USITT) Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.This new lightweight Banner hoist enhances Daktronics full line of automated theatre rigging solutions.

“Shortly after the launch of the new commercial market designed Banner hoist at the 2011 USITT Stage Expo, it became clear that this product was also an excellent solution for the variable acoustic market when coupled with our E Series controller,” said Operations Manager Dave Rossi. “Uniting these two products has created an affordable system that delivers precise repeatability in speed and position as well as incorporates Daktronics standard dual braking system. We are all excited to have this on display at this year’s USITT Stage Expo in Milwaukee.”

Along with the featured acoustical Banner hoist will be Daktronics Pro Series controller with a Vortek Classic hoist.
