Major League Soccer (MLS) club San Jose Earthquakes has installed a new 13HD video scoreboard at its new Avaya Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
Measuring approximately 24ft high by more than 120ft wide, the Daktronics-manufactured display is capable of showing one large image to highlight live video and instant replays. It can also be divided into separate windows to show a variety of vivid graphics, colorful animations, up-to-the-minute statistics, scoring information and sponsor advertisements.
“From the start, Daktronics has been a great technology partner,” said San Jose Earthquakes president Dave Kaval. “They share our vision of creating a great fan experience through the video displays around the stadium. With our main scoreboard, backside video board and ribbon LED boards, we have the most video display square footage of any MLS venue. We couldn’t be more excited to launch our stadium with these products.”
An additional video display was installed on the back side of the main display facing outside the seating bowl to help enhance the overall fan experience as they arrive at the stadium. It measures 24ft high by 44ft wide and also features a 13HD pixel layout. Two ribbon displays featuring 20mm line spacing are installed along the seating fascia. One ribbon display measures more than 2ft high by 98ft long and the other measures roughly 4.5ft high by 150ft long. These displays will provide the opportunity to showcase sponsors throughout events as well as providing additional statistics and other game information.
In addition to the equipment installation, the team will also receive a bank of hours for the creation of digital content that will be produced and delivered at the Earthquakes’ request.
