Chase Center is the NBA’s newest arena and following a Samsung LED display installation it now includes the largest centre-hung video display in the league. In total there is more than 64 LED video displays designed and installed by Samsung subsidiary, PRISMVIEW, at the new home of the Golden State Warriors.
“Samsung is committed to changing the way fans experience live events through technology,” said Harry Patz, SVP and general manager, B2B Enterprise Display Division, Samsung Electronics America. “Our product portfolio lends itself to seamless integration in a variety of industries, including sports applications, and in this case outfitting Chase Center with our displays. We are proud to partner with the Golden State Warriors, an organisation that shares the same passion and commitment to delivering unforgettable experiences to their customers.”
“A project of this size and scope doesn’t happen overnight. It took years of planning and working side-by-side with the Warriors organisation to ensure that the centre-hung structure and LED video displays met all of the weight and engineering requirements to deliver an amazing experience,” said Don Szczepaniak, CEO of PRISMVIEW. “From the stunning outdoor LED Video Displays in the Plaza, to the massive centre-hung the Chase Center is a world-class venue. It was an exciting challenge for us. We are very proud and grateful to be a part of this cutting-edge new venue.”
Samsung LED technologies showcase a detailed and realistic picture, ensuring each fan is immersed in the action every seat. The new Warriors centre-hung main videoboard adds up to a massive 9,699sqft of active video display, making it the largest LED video display centre-hung installed in a sports arena. The centre-hung integrates 15 displays varying from 6.7mm pixel pitch on the main displays and upper halo ring, to 4mm pixel pitch on the underbelly displays, amassing a total of more than 26.3 million individual LEDs.
“Our fans are some of the most knowledgeable fans in sports and as we had the opportunity to build a new arena we knew our scoreboard would be key in the overall fan experience at Chase Center,” said Warriors president and COO Rick Welts. “In addition to having the most square footage of surface LED space in the NBA, the capabilities are endless – providing fans everything they need to follow the game including rich content, expanded stat categories, the ability to show stats for every player on the team at the same time, a real-time shot chart and much more.”
To elevate the fan experience further, Samsung and the Warriors stepped outside the arena to install the first-ever full outdoor LED display in San Francisco. Fastened to the outer wall of Chase Center’s west entrance, the vibrant display provides a preview of the technology that can be experienced inside. The superior image quality of Samsung’s 10mm LED video display is second-to-none. The displays are built to withstand any environmental elements.
In addition to the ground-breaking centre-hung and outdoor LED displays, Samsung LED technologies can be found throughout the venue, adding up to 53.6 million individual LED pixels.
