Cameron Indoor Stadium upgrades with Daktronics

Beginning
next season, the Cameron Crazies will have one more reason to rumble in their
seats. Daktronics will install a new centerhung scoring and video display for
Cameron Indoor Stadium on the campus of Duke
University in Durham, N.C.
Custom wood and brass bar trim will frame the entire centerhung display,
appropriately accenting the Blue Devils’ new system.
“We are
pleased to partner with Daktronics on the new video board in Cameron Indoor
Stadium,” said Duke Director of Athletics Kevin White. “Daktronics is a proven leader
in this field, and their work and attention to detail on this project has been
outstanding. Given the ability to incorporate video elements for the first time
in Cameron’s storied history, we are excited about enhancing what is already
the best atmosphere in college basketball.”
Duke’s
new four-sided video and scoring system will replace its current centerhung
display and will come complete with four Daktronics LED video displays
measuring more than 6-feet-high and 10-feet-wide. These video displays
overlooking Coach K Court
will provide instant replays and statistical information to keep every Blue
Devil fan and athlete in the game. The entire cube-shaped system will measure
more than 14-feet-wide and almost 15-feet-tall.
“Daktronics
is excited to work with a prestigious university with the academic and athletic
tradition of Duke
University,” said Eric
Lingren, Daktronics Sales. “We worked diligently to create a system to not only
entertain the fans, but to also keep the integrity of historic Cameron Indoor
Stadium in mind and help add to the one-of-a-kind, game-day atmosphere for this
prominent basketball program.”
The new
system will also showcase sponsors and advertisements with eight additional
full-color LED displays, with one positioned above and one below each of the
four main video displays. It will also include custom Daktronics scoreboards,
each fitting neatly between the main video displays and lower digital displays
on each side.
