Daktronics boosts fan experience at Texas’ Frank Erwin Center

Video display and scoreboard specialist Daktronics has installed 11 LED displays at US college the University of Texas’ Frank Erwin Center.

The installation includes 1.7 million LEDs across approximately 3,500 square feet of LED displays.

The centre-hung display will consist of four main video screens, four upper game-in-progress displays and a lower ring display. Each main display will be the equivalent size of nearly 27 total 60-inch televisions.

The main displays are capable of variable content zoning for each to bring one large picture to highlight live video or instant replays, but each can also be separated into multiple zones to show any combination of video, replays, statistics, graphics and sponsorship messages.

The main displays and ring display will feature 6mm line spacing while the upper displays and 360-degree ribbon display will feature 10mm line spacing to bring crisp, clear imagery to fans in every seat of the arena.

“One of our top priorities is offering an exceptional fan experience at our men’s and women’s basketball games,” said Texas men’s athletics director, Mike Perrin.

Daktronics sales representative Dan Fjeldheim said: “Upgrading our video display system to include the latest LED technology will enhance the viewing experience for our fans. We’re grateful to extend our partnership with the University of Texas by providing new displays for the Frank Erwin Center.

“The installation will bring the game-day experience to the next level for their student-athletes and fans. We’re can’t wait to see it up and running later this year.”
