Daktronics Installs Four LED Video Displays in Millis Center at High Point University
Daktronics has partnered with High Point University to manufacture and install four new LED video displays to the Millis Center in High Point, North Carolina. Installation was completed this summer to bring improved visual experience to Panthers sports and special events.
“High Point University is thrilled to enhance the game-day experience for our fans this season with the installation of new Daktronics video boards in our basketball arena,” says High Point University Athletic Director Dan Hauser. “Daktronics has been the leader in the area of video board technology and it was an easy decision to partner with a business built on customer service and quality products. We’re excited to begin the 2018-19 basketball season with hall of fame head coach Tubby Smith and a transformed Millis Center thanks to Daktronics video boards.”
The main display measures 12.5 ft. high by 22 ft. wide and three auxiliary displays each measure 9.5 ft. high by 16.5 ft. wide. All four displays feature 6mm line spacing to bring crisp, clear imagery to fans, student-athletes, and coaches at every event.
“This project started out with a goal of increasing the size of each display in Millis as well as trying to streamline their control system in hopes of making the operator experience more user-friendly,” says Corey Williams, Daktronics sales representative. “I think that we were able to accomplish their goals and it has brought a new feel to this great facility. We’re very grateful for the opportunity to build upon our long-standing relationship with High Point University and can’t wait to see the impact the new system will have on the fans’ game-day experience.”
Each of the video displays is capable of variable content zoning. This allows each display to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics, animation, and sponsorship messages.
Along the sidelines, the Millis Center received four courtside LED scorer’s tables. Each table measures approximately 2 ft. high by 9 ft. wide and features 10mm line spacing. They can provide supplemental content to the main displays such as statistics and graphics as well as offering the opportunity to highlight sponsors throughout events.
Daktronics included its powerful Show Control System with this installation. This system provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration, and playback hardware that forms a user-friendly production solution.
In addition to the equipment installation, High Point University will also receive a content package that will be produced and delivered by Daktronics Creative Services.
