Two new LED video boards are up and running at the Olympic Oval in Alberta, Canada, which will enable the venue to provide a more flexible visual experience for spectators.
Known for its hosting of speedskating, the Olympic Oval has installed a main video display measuring 12.5ft wide by 25ft wide at one end of the ice circuit. With 6mm line-spacing, it offers high-definition viewing for those up-close.
“The Olympic Oval strives to have a ‘Game Ready’ concept that allows us to host all events very easily,” said Jamie Seguin, Olympic Oval associate director, marketing, sponsorship and events.
“From club racing to international events, this capacity allows the Oval to lead the world in video delivery for speed skating. The addition of these screens, the versatility they add, further evolves the quality of the amazing daily training environment that the Oval offers to all clients. Daktronics aligned with our vision for this project and has delivered on that idea.”
Display manufacturer Daktronics has also provided the venue with a portable display measuring 12.5ft high by 25ft wide, which can be moved to different locations throughout the Olympic Oval to maximize viewing at events.
“This video display project brings a flexible and unique visual experience to the Olympic Oval,” said Brady Jacobsen, Daktronics regional sales manager.
“The ability to move the large portable display to various locations for different events will help the venue maximize their visual components for all audiences. All of this new equipment will produce a positive impact for the Olympic Oval for years to come.”
