Stanford University’s Maples Pavilion, which is home to Stanford volleyball and basketball, will receive a new Daktronics four-corners LED display system.
Maples Pavilion was built in 1969 and underwent a $26 million makeover in 2004. The renovation introduced a new 29,000-square-foot concourse, locker rooms, student-athlete lounges, a strength and conditioning room, an athletic training room and a Courtside Room for banquets. The updated Maples Pavilion featured a four-sided scoreboard hung in the center of the pavilion, which could replay videos. This summer, Maples Pavilion is getting a fresh new display.
Each face of the display is approximately 15.5 feet wide and eight and a half feet high. According to the makers, the size and orientation of the screens are designed to ensure the screen’s visibility in any of the 7,233 seats in the house. The display will employ variable content zoning, which allows for either one large picture to be displayed across four screens or for smaller zones, combining instant replays, live video, up-to-the-minute scoring information and advertisements.
The new LED display extends from the partnership between Stanford University and Daktronics. In August 2013, Stanford Stadium received two LED video displays and a fascia display from the company.
“It is an honor to continue our long-standing partnership that spans over three decades with Stanford University,” Daktronics sales representative Eric Cain tells Digital Signage Connection. “Daktronics is grateful to play a part in Stanford’s rich history of tradition and excellence. The new center-hung and auxiliary displays will add yet another level of excitement to an already outstanding game-day experience in Maples Pavilion.”
The display system is to be built this summer and is scheduled to be complete in late August.
