BROOKINGS, S.D. — March 03, 2017Daktronics Inc. (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., and National Signs in Houston recently partnered in completing a record-tall order in Houston, a 90-foot-tall display structure located at Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land.

Smart Financial Centre's massive Galaxy® GS6 electronic message center features a unique design to showcase upcoming activities and measures 18 feet high by 31 feet wide inside the 90-foot-tall structure. The sign is home to the largest non-stadium display area and is strategically angled to catch maximum views along Houston's major U.S. 59 thoroughfare.

The Daktronics system provides the most capabilities and best option for joint programming."

Smart Financial Centre's display was installed in late 2016. Joel Heine, Daktronics Regional Sales Manager, commented, "This project is an example of the outstanding work National Signs has done utilizing the industry-best Daktronics Galaxy GS6 products. We are proud and honored to have been selected for this high profile project."

Another recent Daktronics installation at Smart Financial Centre includes a 6-foot by 9-foot double-faced, high-definition electronic message display placed at the Plaza entrance for walk-up traffic.

The 90-foot display structure receives more than 125,000 views from traffic each day.
