Video display and scoreboard specialist Daktronics has installed several new displays at the North American University of Dayton’s UD Arena and the Elmina Stadium in Accra, Ghana.
The Ohio University will see a new nine-display centrehung system, two ribbon displays, four basketball stanchion displays and five digital scorer’s tables.
The main centrehung displays are capable of variable content zoning, allowing them to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, game statistics and information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
The University of Dayton will also receive digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services.
“Our fans will be impressed by what this new system has to offer,” senior associate athletics director and director of UD Arena, Scott DeBolt, said. “We are more than doubling our capacity to relay information during events. With all those elements, there will be plenty of graphics and videos that we can throw out there to keep folks informed of stats, out-of-town scores, replays, sponsors, upcoming events, promotions, you name it.”
Meanwhile, Daktronics has also installed two new LED video displays at Accra’s Elmina Stadium, home to Ghanaian Premier League football club Elmina Sharks.
Ashiaki Wilson-Tei, an associate of the business development department of Groupe Nduom, the conglomerate which selected Daktronics’ displays for the venue, said: “We were highly pleased with the entire process and working with Daktronics. Our goal is to have a facility with a quintessential design and amenities that would not only make sports and entertainment accessible to the people in the area.
“We’re hoping to appeal to major players in the sports and entertainment industries such as CAF (Confederation of African Football), etc. By being extremely efficient, the Daktronics team played a huge role in us progressing in this major project and I definitely see us working together again in the future.”
