NC State raises new Daktronics centerhung video system


Daktronics has partnered with NC State University for a new four-sided centerhung video display system at Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, North Carolina. In total, nine new LED video displays were installed this summer.

“Reynolds Coliseum stands as one of the most iconic structures on NC State’s campus, and Daktronics has delivered an exceptional component to our renovation,” says NC State deputy athletics director for internal operations, Michael Liptiz. “The new centerhung display will be the visual centerpiece of an enhanced spectator experience.”

The four main centerhung displays each incorporate 10mm line spacing and each measures more than 7ft high by 13.5ft wide. They will provide excellent image clarity and contrast with wide-angle visibility for a great view from every seat in the coliseum.

“We’re excited to provide this new video display system for NC State and their athletics department,” says Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. “The displays will add to the amazing atmosphere that is sure to be part of the newly renovated Reynolds Coliseum. We’re thankful for the opportunity to further our long-standing partnership with NC State and we can’t wait to see the new displays fired up.”

The four main displays are capable of variable content zoning, which allows each display to show one large image or to be divided into multiple smaller windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, game scoring and statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

An LED ring display measuring 2ft high by 44ft in circumference and featuring 15mm line spacing is attached to the bottom of the centerhung displays.

Two ribbon displays featuring 10mm line spacing are mounted to the north and south seating fascia. Each measures 2ft high and they will combine for a total of 51ft in length.

Reynolds Coliseum also received two LED ribbon displays, one installed on each sideline. These displays each feature 10mm line spacing and each measure 2ft high by 9ft long.

The ring, ribbon and scorer’s table displays provide the opportunity to supplement content shown on the main displays as well as offering sponsors the ability to send their messages to attendees throughout events.

In addition to the equipment installation, NC State will also receive digital content to be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services. This content will consist of any mixture of sponsorship messages, crowd prompts, headshots, game opens and venue announcements, at the request of the university.
