Daktronics provides additional LED displays and services for Summit League Tournament


Daktronics continues a long partnership with the Sioux Falls Sports Authority in conjunction with The Summit League at The Sioux Falls men’s and women’s basketball championships.

The tournament is taking place at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA, on March 5-8.

Daktronics is providing a 1.9mm high-resolution video display as a backdrop in the press room that will host the pre-tournament press conference on March 3 and all post-game interviews throughout the tournament. This higher resolution product is better received by television cameras and ideal for press backdrop applications.

“We’re excited that our high-resolution product is going to be featured at the Summit League tournament in their press room,” says Jay Parker, Daktronics vice president of live events. “It’s a great stage to show the newer technology and applications that Daktronics has been developing to assist our customers. This video solution brings a greater level of flexibility in press conference settings, especially with sponsors and what they can show behind whichever team or player is being interviewed.”

The 1.9mm LED solution features low-power consumption, long lifetime and better thermal management than the industry standard. This option is ideal for indoor digital signage applications that require crisp image quality at viewing distances as close as approximately 4ft.

Consistent with previous years, Daktronics will also be providing a 4mm video display for the Summit Lounge so people in that area of the arena can see the action while waiting for the next game or catch up on other games in between the live action.

Daktronics personnel will be on-site to operate all of the displays at the venue providing a game-day presentation to inform and entertain fans throughout the entire tournament. Daktronics Creative Services created digital content specifically for the press room display, but also produced content for displays throughout the venue including those seen by fans inside the seating bowl.

The Denny Sanford Premier Center features a Daktronics LED video super system consisting of a 10-display center-hung configuration above the court, a 360° ribbon display along the seating fascia, two end wall displays and a marquee display at the main entrance of the facility.
