BROOKINGS, S.D., June 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics Inc. (Nasdaq:DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., brings the latest generation of its GalaxyPro® video displays for commercial application to the market. The third generation display combines the superior image quality, low power consumption, and easy control of the GalaxyPro® product line with new design features that radically reduce installation time.

The GalaxyPro display's innovative cabinet design saves sign companies significant time and money:

  • Display cabinets come in a single or significantly fewer sections.
  • Sections may be assembled on the ground with external splicing and a single lift onto the structure.
  • No spreader beam is required for the majority of sizes.
  • Quick connects provide plug-and-play capability.

Sign companies are already reaping the benefits. "We ripped out the old LED display the first day and had the two faces of the GalaxyPro installed, with the top back on the next day," says Randy Lauridsen, president of Precise Sign, Phoenix, Arizona. "It installed very quickly with only eight bolts and a few mounting clips. If it had been product we've used previously, it would've taken us a day and a half longer. It is nice when you're out in the field and everything comes together fast."

"It's a great product; it went up so easily," says John Johnson, vice president of operations at A-Plus Signs, Fresno, California. "It's different from anything we have ever done. Most displays this size would come in multiple pieces and take all day to install. This came off the truck in one piece and we had it up in an hour."

Pioneering product growth of this kind is possible due to an excellent engineering staff and Daktronics' commitment to research and development. While the current economy put many companies on hold, Daktronics has moved forward, strengthening its product lines and its position in the industry.
