Introducing Daktronics' Galaxy® GT6x

Posted: 11/14/2019

Daktronics Inc. (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, S.D., is pleased to introduce the latest in the Galaxy® line of LED message displays – the Galaxy GT6x.

"Daktronics developed the new Galaxy GT6x series as a direct response to market demand," says Daktronics Market Manager Taylor Nilson. "Customers tell us they want higher resolutions so they can display more compelling content. The GT6x provides high resolution and bright, vibrant images, backed by Daktronics reliability."

GT6x LEDs are mounted to the surface of the circuit of the display to generate bright, robust images in a wider viewing area than traditional LED displays. Pixel pitch is also a factor in the viewing experience. Pixel pitch is the number of pixels per square foot. The smaller the pixel pitch, the higher the resolution. The new GT6x is available in both a standard 8 mm and 10 mm pixel pitch options.

The GT6x features an upgraded module and power delivery system to increase brightness 33% over the existing Galaxy GT6 product line, while maintaining the reliability you expect from Daktronics.  

"While the GT6x does implement different technology than past displays, we did retain the features that our customers appreciate, like easy installation, front ventilation and narrow depth," explains Nilson. "It also pairs with the popular cloud-based Venus® Control Suite software for simple control from anywhere and from any device."

The GT6x replaced the existing Galaxy GT6 product as of October 30, 2019.
