LSI Enhances Sycamore Stadium with an LED Display

9/14/2009

With the season under way, Sycamore High School football fans are enjoying the newest addition to Sycamore Stadium -- a 20mm LED video display measuring in at almost 15’ tall by 22’ wide.

This visually dynamic LED display brings fans instant video replays, player stats, community messaging and virtual scoreboard technology. “The scoreboard technology allows for tracking game progress and its’ digital capability will enhance our fans’ overall experience.” Said Jim Stoll, Athletic Director at Sycamore High School. The LED display produced by LSI Industries is replacing a traditional fixed digit scoreboard with a time clock. While this new LED display is a major departure from the old scoreboard, LSI’s pixel block design utilized in this display only draws 62.5 watts.

The new display was purchased by Eventz for Charity, Inc. (EFC) a nonprofit organization that emphasizes supporting the local community. EFC then contracted with ReachUSA, a Blue Ash, Ohio advertising company, to sell and produce the graphics and video for the state-of-the-art LED display. This will create a “long-term revenue stream that will allow Sycamore to continue funding programs for the districts sports.” Said Bob Slattery, CEO of Reach USA.
