"We are excited to continue our longstanding partnership with Daktronics in order to enhance the game day atmosphere at our athletic events," said Morgan State University Director of Athletics Edward Scott. "Our goal is to provide our student-athletes and fans with the first-class experience they deserve, while assisting our coaches in their recruiting efforts."

The new end zone display at Hughes Stadium (football) will measure 24 feet high by 30 feet wide featuring 15HD pixel layout for exceptional image quality and contrast with wide angle visibility bringing a great view to fans in every seat.

The two new end wall displays inside Talmadge L. Hill Field House will measure approximately 9.5 feet high by 16.5 feet wide and feature 10-millimeter line spacing for crisp, clear imagery during Bears basketball, volleyball and other events.

These main video displays will feature variable content zoning which allows them each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any variety of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

A Sportsound® 2000HD audio system will be integrated into the video and scoring system to provide full-range sound reproduction while delivering clear and intelligible speech.

"We're excited to be a part of the video and audio upgrades at Hughes Stadium," said Charley Bocklet, Daktronics regional manager. "The installation is designed to optimize fan engagement and bring a fresh look to the facilities. We're sure the fans are going to love the large enhancement this brings to the stadium and the games. The video and LED scorer's tables being installed at Hill Field House will change that venue completely as well."

Four LED scorer's tables are included with the installation. They can be connected in any configuration to bring additional statistics and sponsorship opportunities to every event. Each display measures roughly 2 feet high by 9.5 feet high and feature 10-millimeter line spacing. Additionally, a fixed digit scoreboard will be installed at the arena to bring all the standard statistics and timing that fans expect at every event.
