SAP Center, home to NHL ice hockey franchise the San Jose Sharks, has linked up with Daktronics to expand the venue’s LED display capabilities.

Daktronics will install Narrow Pixel Pitch (NPP) displays throughout the SAP Center concourse along with new marquee displays outside the venue. NPP LED displays create pristine image quality with a much closer viewing distance.

The 17 NPP displays all measure nearly 3.5 feet tall and range from 12 feet wide to 32 feet wide, with one large display spanning nearly 66 feet wide.

These displays feature 2.5-millimeter line spacing for close viewing distances for people as close as six feet away from the screen while maintaining clear images and video quality.

They will be integrated into the game-day presentation and existing video displays to complement the centre-hung, fascia and other signage throughout the venue.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to partner with SAP Center to provide these NPP displays in their concourse,” said Robin Hall, Daktronics regional manager.

“This will allow them to further enhance their goals for fan engagement throughout their venue. Connecting with fans while they’re away from their seats has become a vital aspect of the live event experience.

“SAP Center is the home of the San Jose Sharks, and the arena also hosts many other events, and these displays will allow SAP Center the flexibility to cater their content for each type of event they may be hosting, and reach fans throughout the building.”
