Qudos Bank Arena installs largest centerhung LED Video System in southern hemisphere

Qudos Bank Arena installs largest centerhung LED Video System in southern hemisphere
January 25, 2017

Global audio-visual leaders Daktronics have completed the installation of 12-display centrehung LED video display system at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena - the largest in the southern hemisphere - using 180 portable LED panels for the eight main displays that can be taken down and used in any configuration for multiple events.

The four largest displays each measure 4.76 metres high by 8.88 metres wide and the four displays at the corners of the configuration in between the main displays each measure 4.76 metres high by 2.54 metres wide. These displays feature 6-millimetre line spacing to provide excellent image clarity and contrast to bring a great view to every seat within the arena.

The displays are capable of variable content zoning which allows each to show one large image or each can be divided into multiple zones to show any variety of live video, instant replays, game statistics, graphics, sponsorship messages and other event information.

Commenting on the project, Daktronics Regional Manager Blair Robertson explained “this project was a challenge that our engineering team was eager to accept as we worked closely with the Qudos Bank Arena operations team to design and install a world-class multi-sport centerhung display system.

“This type of project fully engages every aspect of our business and highlights Daktronics as the industry leader in the LED display industry. I’m proud to be a part of such a magnificent project that truly is spectacular to see in person.”

The centerhung system includes an upper ring display measuring .63 metres high by 55.79 metres around and a lower ring display measuring .63 metres high by 38.04 metres around. Both ring displays feature 10-millimetre line spacing and can show complementary information to what is being shown on the main displays.

On the underbelly of the centerhung, two displays measuring 1.90 metres high by 3.49 metres wide and featuring 6-millimetre line spacing will be angled towards the sides of the arena to appeal to the seats closer to the action.

 Additionally, the arena received four digital scorer’s tables to place in any configuration along the side of the playing area. Each of these displays measures .63 metres high by 2.22 metres wide and features 6-millimetre line spacing to show additional graphics, statistics and sponsorship messages throughout events.
