Daktronics To Provide LED Video Displays For New Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Tottenham Hotspur has selected Daktronics to provide new LED video and ribbon displays for their new stadium in London. Four main video displays totaling more than 1,000 square meters, two façade displays and three tiers of ribbon displays will be installed this year.
“We are pleased to add Daktronics to our roster of world-leading suppliers, as specialists in large LED video displays and digital ribbon boards. We have pushed them to deliver something that will truly set us apart and these installations will play a significant role as part of our commitment to setting a new standard in fan experience in sports and entertainment,” Matthew Collecott, Director of Operations, Tottenham Hotspur says.
Tottenham Hotspur is committed to driving innovation and using modern technology, including the new Daktronics displays, to deliver an unrivaled fan experience inside the new 62,062-seat stadium, the largest of any London football club.
“We’re extremely proud to partner with one of the most storied football clubs in England,” says Daktronics President and CEO Reece Kurtenbach. “The video displays and LED technology in this stadium is sure to create an amazing atmosphere for fans and players alike. We’re excited to see the stadium open later this year.”
The two south end displays will each encompass 325 square meters and the two north end displays will each encompass 190.7 square meters. Two additional displays in the south west and south east sections will measure 178.9 square meters. Each main display will feature 13HD pixel layouts to bring excellent image clarity and contrast to fans in every seat.
Each main video display will feature variable content zoning allowing each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics and match data, graphics and animations and sponsorship messages. The three tiers of LED ribbon displays will deliver fan engagement through the event-day experience.
It is the first time three sets of ribbon displays have been featured inside a stadium in the United Kingdom. The upper and middle tier ribbons will run from the east to west stands through the north stand. The upper measures 387 meters long while the lower measures 348 meters long. The suite tier ribbon will be split into two runs along the east and west stands measuring 122 meters long on the east and 105 meters long on the west.
