Brookings, South Dakota-based Daktronics, a manufacturer of EMC and electronic display systems, announces a partnership with the University of Arkansas to bring 11 new LED video displays to four different venues on its campus in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Installation started at the largest of the venues, Bud Walton Arena, home of the Arkansas Razorbacks’ basketball team, last fall. The other three facilities are Baum Stadium for baseball-which will have the largest video board display in college baseball; Bogle Park for softball; and the Randal Tyson Center for indoor track.
Bud Walton Arena boasts a new four-sided, center-hung video display system and four stanchion displays on each basket support for a total of eight displays.
The two largest displays in the center-hung will each measure approximately 16.5 feet high by 29 feet wide and the other two displays in the center-hung will each measure approximately 16.5 feet high by 23 feet wide. All of these displays will feature six-millimeter line spacing for crisp, clear imagery with wide angle visibility for clarity from every seat in the arena. The displays can show live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
Four stanchion displays featuring six-millimeter line spacing will be installed on the sides of the basket supports, two displays on each support. These displays will provide the opportunity to highlight multiple sponsors throughout events.
The Baum Stadium installation, the largest in college baseball, features a 13HD-pixel layout and measures approximately 25 feet high by 71 feet wide.
