Buffalo Sabres Scoring System shines in HSBC Arena

The Buffalo Sabres in September unveiled a new integrated video and scoring
system at their home facility, the HSBC Arena, featuring a unique centerhung display,
along with a number of clocks and goal lights, all designed and manufactured by
Daktronics Inc.

“It
has been great helping the Sabres provide their fans with one of the best
experiences in the National Hockey League,” said Daktronics Regional Sales
Manager Will Ellerbruch. “The integrated system allows for flexibility
during events and the LED displays are very vivid and bright with great picture
clarity.”

Approximate
overall dimensions of the centerhung structure are 34 feet high by 32 feet
wide. The centerhung display includes four high resolution LED video boards,
each approximately 13 feet high and 22 feet wide with pixels on 10 millimeter spacing.
The centerhung display also includes two circular ProAd digital displays, one approximately
three feet high and 105 feet in circumference and the second approximately
three feet high and 98 feet long. Along the fascia of the arena are two 130-foot
long ProAd displays. The four primary video boards are configured in 16:9
aspect ratio to easily display video from high definition sources.

The custom
integrated system for the HSBC Arena includes a number of additional scoring
components from Daktronics including three pro model hockey goal lights, 15
wall mount locker room clocks, two LED time of day clocks, two trumpet horns
and one set of shot clocks for use during NCAA basketball games and
tournaments.

The super system at HSBC Arena is the 12th the company has designed, built and
installed in NHL facilities.
