New Audiovisual System Installed For Auburn Arena By Daktronics

Future events held at the arena will have added audiovisual entertainment value with a new centerhung video display system and custom indoor sound system with a new Daktronics game-day producer on site

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Oct. 12, 2020 – Audiences attending events at Auburn Arena on the campus of Auburn University in Alabama will receive a new audiovisual entertainment experience from the new centerhung LED display system and custom audio system designed, manufactured and recently installed by Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota. The project also marks the return of a Daktronics on-site event producer to run events at Auburn facilities.

"The partnership with Daktronics reinforces our commitment to elevate the in-game experience of our fans and student-athletes," Auburn Director of Athletics Allen Greene said. "The new audiovisual system will bring to life every dunk, 3-pointer, floor routine and volleyball point, making each competition at Auburn Arena even more of a must-see event."

The new centerhung features one continuous LED video display that curves around 360-degrees of the suspended structure for a complete experience for every seat. It measures nearly 15 feet tall by 72 feet around. A lower ring display measures 3 feet tall by 65.5 feet in circumference. These two LED displays feature 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing to bring crisp, clear imagery to audiences at every event.

A custom audio system was included with the installation of the LED centerhung system and is integrated into the overall production system at Auburn Arena. The new system provides full-range sound reproduction and delivers clear and intelligible speech for a complete audiovisual experience throughout the arena.

"This installation brings Auburn Arena to a complete supersystem including the centerhung, audio system, ribbon display, scorer's tables and scoring system to create the best game-day experience possible for their fans," said Glen Marts, Daktronics sales representative. "We're proud to continue our longstanding partnership with Auburn University and Auburn Athletics with this new installation on campus."

The video display on the centerhung is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple different zones. These zones can show any combination of live videos, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

The on-site Daktronics event producer will manage the game-day production responsibilities including running the super system at Auburn Arena and LED video displays and audio systems at other venues on campus during live events. From running live video on the displays to sponsored game-breaks, this person will ensure the show is entertaining and engaging for all those in attendance.

Daktronics has grown with the sports industry from the company's beginnings in 1968. Today, the company has LED video display installations at hundreds of colleges and universities across the United States.
