Wake Forest, Morgan State Add New Daktronics Displays
Morgan State University and Wake Forest Athletics have selected Daktronics to design, manufacture and install new LED video displays and an audio system at their facilities. Installation is scheduled for late summer to have everything making ready for this fall.
Daktronics will bring 35 LED displays to Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial (LJVM) Coliseum in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The installation of more than 5,000 square feet of LED displays will be completed this summer and will enhance the fan experience at 2017-18 Demon Deacon home games. The entire project will use a total 4.8 million LEDs while it would take 133 60-inch televisions to cover the five centerhung displays.
“As a department, we are very excited to once again partner with Daktronics to provide an enhanced fan experience at our athletic venues,” says Steve Adams, Wake Forest Associate Athletic Director, Internal Operations. “The upgrades to the LJVM Coliseum will provide the ‘wow’ factor that has become the standard of excellence for venues around the ACC. We look forward to completing this work in time for the upcoming basketball season.”
As for Morgan State University, the installation for their new LED displays is scheduled for late summer to have everything making an impact on Bears fans this fall.
“We are excited to continue our longstanding partnership with Daktronics in order to enhance the game-day atmosphere at our athletic events,” says Morgan State University Director of Athletics Edward Scott. “This project is the centerpiece of the facility enhancements that have taken place since my arrival in November. Our goal is to provide our student-athletes and fans with the first-class experience they deserve while assisting our coaches in their recruiting efforts.”
The new end zone display at Hughes Stadium will measure 24 feet high by 30 feet wide featuring 15HD pixel layout for exceptional image quality and contrast with wide angle visibility bringing a great view and exciting experience to fans in every seat.
The two new end wall displays inside Talmadge L. Hill Field House will measure approximately 9.5 feet high by 16.5 feet wide and feature 10-millimeter line spacing for crisp, clear imagery during Bears basketball, volleyball and other events.
