Daktronics Partners with accesso ShoWare Center for Centerhung Display System
Four video and two ring displays form 1,270-square-foot visual centerpiece
BROOKINGS, S.D. – July 27, 2023 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with accesso ShoWare Center in Kent, Washington, to design, manufacture and install a new four-sided, six-display LED centerhung system. The installation took place in 2022 as the centerhung was up and running to support hockey and other events over the winter months.
“Our highest priority is enhancing the guest experience for all events,” said Tim Higgins, General Manager at accesso ShoWare Center. “This new installation has given us greater ability to visually enhance the event experience during Thunderbirds Hockey games and add expanded opportunities for our venue partners.”
To elevate the game-day experience at hockey and other events held within the venue, a six-display centerhung system was installed. Four main displays each measure approximately 10.5 feet high by 19 feet wide with the upper ring display measuring more than 3 feet high by 85 feet around and the lower ring measuring 2.5 feet high by 75.5 feet around. Each display features 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver excellent image clarity and contrast to audiences throughout the main seating bowl.
“This is an exciting project that we’re thrilled to be a part of as accesso ShoWare Center has shown their commitment to an excellent fan experience with our LED display technology,” said Brady Jacobsen, Daktronics regional manager. “The centerhung is a great centerpiece for this venue and shines during their events in Washington.”
The main video displays are capable of variable content zoning which allows each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones. These zones can show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
Daktronics will also be including a complete Show Control solution. This industry-leading control system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a powerful yet user-friendly production solution.
