Video display and scoreboard specialist Daktronics has expanded its long-standing relationship with Liberty University, which is based in the US state of Viginia.

The firm has installed two LED video displays at the Liberty Natatorium in an effort to help improve the fan experience for the college’s aquatics events.

“With this new technology, our fans will be able to enjoy an entertaining, informative and high-quality event with real-time data, advertising and live video,” said Michael Gerringer, AV architect and manager at Liberty University.

“At Liberty, we have a commitment to world-class facilities and Daktronics always helps us achieve that. The resolution and size make it perfect for the size of the venue.

“With the integration of HyTek Meet Manager and the Omnisport 2000s, we can easily put real-time data for all 20 lanes up on the board at the same time during a race and easily switch back to advertisements with the click of a button. We anticipate many years of trouble-free operation from the integrated system.”

The main display has been placed along the side of the pool directly across from the fan seating area. It measures 12.5ft high by 41.5ft wide, while the new auxiliary display measures 6ft high by 10ft wide.

Both displays are capable of variable content zoning, which allows each to show one large image or to be divided into windows to show any combination of live video, instant replay, up-to-the-second results, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

“This is an exciting project as we continue our great partnership with Liberty University,” said Charley Bocklet, Daktronics region manager. “The university has our technology in multiple venues on campus and we’re excited to extend that presence into Liberty Natatorium for their aquatics events. We’re looking forward to many years of exciting and entertaining Liberty Flames fans at events on campus.”

In 2017, Daktronics installed three LED displays at Liberty Indoor Track Complex for track and field events.
