Australia’s Qudos Bank Arena installs largest centerhung LED video system in southern hemisphere


Qudos Bank Arena has partnered with Daktronics to construct a 12-display centerhung LED video display system – the largest in the southern hemisphere – using 180 portable LED panels for the eight main displays that can be taken down and used in any configuration for any of the multiple events hosted by the facility in Sydney, New South Wales.

The four largest displays each measure 15.6ft high by 29.1ft wide, and the four displays at the corners of the configuration in between the main displays each measure 15.6ft high by 8.3ft wide. These displays feature 6mm line spacing to provide excellent image clarity and contrast to bring a great view to every seat within the arena.

The displays are capable of variable content zoning which enables each to show one large image, or each can be divided into multiple zones to show any variety of live video, instant replays, game statistics, graphics, sponsorship messages and other event information.

“This project was a challenge that our engineering team was eager to accept as we worked closely with the Qudos Bank Arena operations team to design and install a world-class multi-sport centerhung display system,” said Blair Robertson, Daktronics regional manager.

“This type of project fully engages every aspect of our business and highlights Daktronics as the industry leader in the LED display industry. I’m proud to be a part of such a magnificent project that truly is spectacular to see in person.”

The centerhung system includes an upper ring display measuring 2ft high by 183ft around and a lower ring display measuring 2ft high by 124.8ft around. Both ring displays feature 10mm line spacing and can show complementary information to what is being shown on the main displays.

On the underbelly of the centerhung, two displays measuring 6.2ft high by 11.5ft wide and featuring 6mm line spacing will be angled toward the sides of the arena to appeal to the seats closer to the action.

Additionally, the arena received four digital scorer’s tables to place in any configuration along the side of the playing area. Each of these displays measures 2ft high by 7.3ft wide and features 6mm line spacing to show additional graphics, statistics and sponsorship messages throughout events.
