Daktronics installs video displays at Kuwait Stadium

Daktronics installs video displays at Kuwait Stadium
December 24, 2015

Daktronics has completed the design, manufacture and installation of two new HD LED video displays and an additional auxiliary display for the multipurpose Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium in Al-Ardiya, Kuwait.

Opened on 18th December, the project provide 135 metre² of video entertainment for football matches and other athletic events.

Commenting on the project, Amiri Diwan Project Manager Ibrahim Ashkanani stated “the new Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium screens are of the most important, the best and the latest external displays to international courts at all levels of the Arabian Gulf and the Middle East area.

“These new screens, with other integrated high technologies, are to become the new focus and enjoyment points, and will definitely fascinate the fans and audiences in every game inside Jaber Al-Ahmad International Stadium.”

The two main displays each measure 10 metres high by 16 metres wide and are the first in the Middle East to feature 10mm line spacing using SMD 3-in-1 LED technology. The auxiliary display measures 4 metres high by 7 metres wide and features a 15HD pixel layout. These displays incorporate industry-leading environmental protection while providing excellent image clarity and contract with wide-angle visibility for a great view from every seat in the stadium.

Speaking about the installation, founder and Chief Executive of IT solutions provider Smartentity, Chadi Kfoury, commented “this project was quite challenging with the extremely tight time schedule, the tilted and hanger suspended structure from the tensioned roof cables, and the many different technologies to be integrated with the screens.

“Our partnership with Daktronics for this project allowed us to overcome all these challenges and provide our customer the best solution – a perfect resolution with HD formats, super-wide viewing angles, and the capability of variable content zoning. With the new high-tech flourishing in this project along with HD screens, we had set out Jaber Al-Ahmed International Stadium to be at the top of lists in the region.”

Variable content zoning allows the displays to show one large image or to be divided into different sections to show any variety of live video, instant replay, statistics, game information, animations and sponsorship messages. The installation features a complete primary and backup system to ensure optimal operations during any event.

Daktronics has also included its powerful Show Control System with this installation. This industry-leading system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
