The Xtream Arena in Coralville, Iowa, which is home to the University of Iowa and a future ECHL hockey team has taken delivery of new video displays, which are designed to enhance gameday experience.
Ahead of the 5,100 fixed seat arena’s planned Fall opening, it will feature two new video displays, one at each end of the arena, with 5.9mm pixel spacing for clear imagery to viewers throughout the arena. Each display will measure 15 feet high by 24.5 feet wide and features industry-leading environmental protection to ensure they operate as expected, even with the changes in humidity going from hockey events to basketball, volleyball and other events.
The video displays are capable of variable content zoning allowing each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to share any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, game information, graphics and animations, venue announcements, and sponsorship messages.
Two ribbon displays will be mounted to the seating fascia to bring additional graphics and messages to arena visitors. Each ribbon display will feature 10mm pixel spacing and measure 2.5 feet high by 359 feet long. They provide the opportunity to highlight sponsors throughout events and help engage fans during every exciting moment.
“The inclusion of Daktronics video and ribbon boards as well as the courtside signage will enhance our guests’ experience while attending events at Xtream Arena powered by Mediacom,” said Jack Ligon, general manager of Xtream Arena and GreenState Family Fieldhouse. “The technology and service Daktronics offers allow us to provide the flexibility this facility was designed for to our tenants and partners. We look forward to showing the capabilities with the events to come.”
