Daktronics has partnered with the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum of Fort Wayne, Indiana, to manufacture and install new LED video displays into the existing center-hung structure. The project was completed late this summer in time for the fall sports seasons.
“In looking for a reliable provider for our video and scoring system, we turned to the tried-and-true products from Daktronics and their continued stability in the industry for this installation,” says executive vice president and general manager of Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, Randy Brown. “The Daktronics team worked with us to retrofit our existing center-hung structure with new displays, as well as providing everything from installation to training that made the entire process as seamless as we could have hoped.”
The center-hung display configuration consists of four video displays each measuring more than 7ft high by 11.5ft wide. The displays feature 15mm line spacing and wide-angle visibility ensuring the displays look great from any seat in the house. Variable content zoning allows the video displays to show a single large image or to show multiple windows filled with any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring information, up-to-the-minute statistics, animations and sponsor highlights.
“We were very excited to continue our relationship with the Coliseum through providing this scoring system overhaul,” says Ryan Stratton, sales representative for Daktronics. “The teams playing at the Coliseum will have the opportunity to score their games using the same systems used in NBA and NHL. We look forward to the future with the Coliseum by providing our Show Control system to operate the new displays. Show Control was a great choice for the Coliseum through its ability to be expanded to any new display products they may decide to install going forward.”
Daktronics’ Show Control System provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
