Remington Park, the first world-class parimutuel track in Oklahoma, has turned Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota, to design, manufacture, and install two LED displays for the venue in Oklahoma City. Installation of the video displays is slated for the summer of 2023 to bring the racetrack to life in the fall.
“Remington Park is thrilled to have Daktronics refresh our high-definition infield display screens,” said Matt Vance, Remington Park executive vice president of racing operations. “Our guests have enjoyed the presentation these screens offer during racing and other events since 2011 and we look forward to this amenity upgrade.”
Located out in the middle of the racetrack, the new main video display will measure approximately 34.5 feet high-by-61 feet wide, and the new tote display will measure nearly 18 feet high-by-61 feet wide. Both feature 10-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver excellent image clarity and contrast as they update viewers on the live racing action.
“We’ve been delivering top-notch products and services to Remington Park for a number of years and we’re excited to continue our long-standing partnership with this new installation,” said Perry Grave, sales representative at Daktronics. “It’s going to be a great addition to an already fantastic venue with improved resolution and improved brightness that will be noticeable to their viewers.”
The Remington Park LED displays will be capable of variable content zoning which allows each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones of content. They can show live video, instant replays and photo finishes, up-to-the-minute odds and racing information, graphics and animations and sponsorship messages.
A custom Daktronics control solution, including Venus Control Suite, is integrated with the installation. It includes web-based software for easy display management at any time from anywhere.
