Ovation Hollywood Brought to Light with Daktronics LED Displays

Two LED video displays welcome and inform visitors in Los Angeles

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Nov. 27, 2023 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with Ovation Hollywood, formerly known as Hollywood & Highland, in conjunction with Consumer Experience Group (CEG), to manufacture and deliver two LED video displays to their shopping center and entertainment complex owned jointly by DJM Capital Partners and Gaw Capital USA in Los Angeles, California. Installation was completed on time and within budget early in 2023 and the displays activated upon the completion of an extensive multiyear remodel of the shopping center. The displays are now featuring off-site marketing, on-site marketing and sponsorships, and experiential and entertainment content.

“It’s been a pleasure working with Daktronics and CEG on the project to implement and execute our vision of digital displays at Ovation Hollywood,” said Kristofer Golder, vice president of development for DJM Capital Partners, Inc. “Daktronics and CEG are reliable partners and supported us throughout the process – from conceptual design, engineering, permitting, and installation and turnover. We look forward to continuing our business relationship and working together on future digital display endeavors.”

“Working with DJM Capital to select and install Daktronics’ displays was a great experience,” said Jeremy Kolieb, principal at CEG. “Daktronics professional project management coupled with the best technology in the industry makes Ovation Hollywood shine.”

The larger of the two displays, the Tower Arch display, features a 6-millimeter pixel spacing and measures approximately 18 feet high by 31 feet wide. It is positioned near the top of an archway for maximum exposure to audiences as they move about the entertainment complex. 

The second display, Core Portal display, is mounted above a main entryway. It features a 3.9-millimeter pixel spacing and measures nearly 6 feet high by 31 feet wide. These displays feature industry-leading environmental protection ensuring they operate as expected in the California weather.
