Daktronics New Billboard Technology Backed by Improved Support

Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota, announces the DB-6500, the latest addition to their DB-6000 LED digital billboard series.

The Out of Home industry-standard 400 by 400-millimeter module features neighbourhood-friendly emissions standards, a 10-year brightness guarantee, 12-year parts support and diagnostic information through System Health.

Advertising & Promotion Signage

This latest series builds on the most reliable OOH digital billboard to date, Daktronics-backed lifetime image quality, and a host of features that simplify operator experience, now and in the future.

Collin Huber, Daktronics OOH sales manager, said:

“Sourcing, design and development of the most reliable LED display technology has always been our core focus.

“Our latest digital billboard offering outfits display owners with the tested and proven technology to make them successful, with options to complement their various business models, while maintaining good relationships within communities.”

Every Daktronics DB-6500 produces directional illumination, producing light out and downward, limiting light toward unintended areas like adjacent neighbourhoods. When the situation calls for it, Daktronics even offers site-specific light emissions analysis to determine the brightness of the billboard both horizontally and vertically.

Guaranteed Quality

The Daktronics DB-6500 comes with a brightness guarantee, so even after 10 years, the display will shine at 5,000 nits. The company’s confidence in the quality of its products is also evident in the 12-year parts guarantee.

Huber said:

“Most digital displays can look good for the first few years of consistent use but at Daktronics, we believe every display should look good for its life. We vet our suppliers very carefully, so we can guarantee access to replacement parts during the billboard’s life, providing consistency in brightness and colour quality.”

Daktronics uses fully sealed components, multiple calibration methods to ensure colour consistency and feature a factory-installed, integrated SmartLink™ controller for redundant communication paths and remote power. Daktronics also tests every component in a state-of-the-art product reliability lab with a thorough, multi-step process.

Diagnostic Information

Another option for billboard operators is System Health, an annual subscription that provides diagnostic information about every part of the display hardware from the modules to the computers. It works with any scheduling software and provides diagnostics through one convenient, user-friendly platform called Venus® Control Suite.

Huber says it goes beyond the technology in the OOH market:

“We understand that choosing a reliable technology partner is part of the upfront decision, and our engineers and reliability experts have that covered. But Daktronics also has OOH experts that can help with everything from permitting and legislation to ad sales strategies and scheduling.”
