TRANS-LUX VIDEO SCOREBOARD IS CROWNING TOUCH TO NEW STADIUM.

LED Display Board Offers New Levels of Revenue Opportunity to Gainesville High School.

Gainesville High School in Gainesville, Texas launched their football season this year with several firsts, including a new coach, a new stadium and a new Trans-Lux high resolution outdoor LED display board. The new Trans-Lux display is installed at the south end of the school’s Leopard Stadium and is the crowning touch to a new beginning for the school’s athletic program.

“Our industry leading LED display technology is proving extremely popular with high school sports facilities across the country,” said J.M. Allain, President & CEO of Trans-Lux Corporation. “Stadiums and playing fields equipped with Trans-Lux high resolution displays offer new levels of opportunity to the school in advertising and promotional revenue and an enriched environment for the athletes and their fans.”

The Trans-Lux LED display is designed with an easy to read game information display, which measures 112 x 224 pixels and features electronic team names, sponsor signage and a field identification sign. The 20mm digital video message board allows for viewing from the entire length of the football field, with a viewing angle of 140°. The TL Vision 20mm is UL/CE listed and complements Trans-Lux’s Data Walls and LED display systems.

Installation of the LED display board was completed by Olen Williams Inc., an authorized Trans-Lux reseller. In addition to the Trans-Lux LED display, the new stadium features synthetic turf, an eight-lane track, an air-conditioned press box and has a seating capacity of 4,160.
