Daktronics LED panels in large-scale arena install27 January 2017
Daktronics has partnered with Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Australia to construct a 12-display centre-hung LED video display system at the venue.
The system, which is the largest in the southern hemisphere, includes 180 portable LED panels for the eight main displays that can be taken down and used in any configuration for any of the multiple events hosted by the facility.
The four largest displays each measure 4.76m high by 8.88m wide and the four displays at the corners of the configuration in between the main displays measure 4.76m high by 2.54m wide. These displays feature 6mm line spacing to provide image clarity and contrast to bring a great view to every seat.
The displays are capable of variable content zoning, which allows each to show one large image or each can be divided into multiple zones to show any variety of live video, instant replays, game statistics, graphics, sponsorship messages and other event information.
“This project was a challenge that our engineering team was eager to accept as we worked closely with the Qudos Bank Arena operations team to design and install a world-class multi-sport centre-hung display system,” said Blair Robertson, Daktronics regional manager. “This type of project fully engages every aspect of our business and highlights Daktronics as the industry leader in the LED display industry. I’m proud to be a part of such a magnificent project that truly is spectacular to see in person.”
The centre-hung system includes an upper ring display measuring 0.63m high by 55.79m around and a lower ring display measuring 63mm high by 38m around. Both ring displays feature 10mm line spacing and can show complementary information to what is being shown on the main displays.
On the underbelly of the centre-hung, two displays measuring 1.90m high by 3.49m wide and featuring 6mm line spacing will be angled towards the sides of the arena to appeal to the seats closer to the action.
Additionally, the arena received four digital scorer’s tables to place in any configuration along the side of the playing area. Each of these displays measures 0.63m high by 2.22m wide and features 6mm line spacing to show additional graphics, statistics and sponsorship messages throughout events.
