Six video screens, a tape screen and an audio system were installed at the end of 2021
BROOKINGS, SD – To improve the visual experience of the spectators of the event, Credit Union of Texas Event Center in Allen, TXturned to Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, to design, manufacture and install seven new LED screens and an audio system. Six video displays and a new ribbon display are installed and operational to engage and inform the public.
“The new displays and audio systems have had a huge impact on Credit Union of Texas Event Center“, said the deputy general manager of Credit Union of Texas Ross Girouard Event Center. “Obviously they look and sound great, but there have also been major usability improvements and new features that allow us to bring a more dynamic experience to everything we do. .”
The six new LED video screens each measure approximately 11.5 feet high by 31 feet wide and are spread throughout the seat bowl to capture fans’ attention. Each screen features a 5.9 millimeter pixel pitch to share excellent picture clarity and contrast to further immerse viewers in the action.
Around the attendees, a ribbon display was installed along the front of the seats. It measures approximately 2 feet tall by 880 feet long and features pixel spacing of 15 millimeters. This display provides the ability to supplement the main displays with information and statistics while also highlighting sponsors throughout the events.
“The technological improvements made to Credit Union of Texas Event Center elevate the live event experience for audiences and provide many other on-site opportunities,” said Brandon DeSmet, Daktronics commercial. “It’s extremely exciting to see these improvements and I look forward to experiencing them in person in the future.”
All six video screens are capable of variable content zoning that allows each to display a large image or display multiple content zones. This can include live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute stats and event information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.
The new audio system is integrated with the video and scoring system to deliver a booming audio experience with intelligible speech so fans can clearly understand all announcements while surrounded by sound during events.
“New speakers, amplifiers and monitoring equipment provide more energy for sporting events and large crowds at the arena,” said John Olson, Daktronics Audio sales representative. “Larger, more powerful speakers and an expanded low-frequency array provide an extra ‘thump’ to meet the demands of modern music. The richness and clarity of the system is a performance upgrade that fans and teams appreciate We are proud of our relationship with Credit Union of Texas Event Center and I look forward to supporting them for years to come.”
