BROOKINGS, S.D., Oct. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, were selected to manufacture and install all new end wall video displays and more than 3,000 linear feet of ribbon displays at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California. The project was installed over the summer months during the arena’s first phase of renovations and will be used to entertain fans, show statistics, run promotions and sponsorship inventory during Los Angeles Lakers, LA Kings, Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Sparks games starting this season.
"We are incredibly excited to be working with Daktronics and upgrading our LED displays throughout the arena and truly elevating the fans’ experience with three levels of LED ribbon boards and two large end wall video displays,” said Lee Zeidman, President, Crypto.com Arena, Microsoft Theater and L.A. LIVE.
To bring new light to each end of the arena, new LED end wall video displays have been installed. Each display features 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing and measures approximately 21 feet high by 65.5 feet wide. Each display is capable of variable content zoning allowing each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics, graphics, animations and sponsorship messages.
Three new ribbon displays have been installed inside Crypto.com Arena, approximately triple the amount of linear feet of ribbon displays than the venue had previously. Each ribbon display has been installed along different levels of the seating fascia to bring additional game information and graphics to provide a fully immersive entertainment experience for event attendees. Each ribbon features 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing and measures approximately 2.5 feet high with the lower level ribbon measuring 894 feet wide, the mid-level ribbon measuring 1,076 feet wide and the upper level ribbon measuring 1,093 feet wide.
“We’re continually building and delivering LED solutions for the largest event venues in the world, and this project coming together at Crypto.com Arena highlights the work we strive for on a daily basis,” said Daktronics Vice President of Live Events Jay Parker. “We’re excited to partner with the venue and their project teams to make their live event experience something special for fans and audiences in Los Angeles.”
Daktronics has grown with the sports industry from the company’s beginnings in 1968.
