Center is being upgraded with digital LED scorer’s tables, with four sections of Daktronics video technology. These tables will allow ASU to clearly and easily showcase game stats and fan entertainment and sponsor information. The court-level system will measure approximately 3 feet high by 38 feet wide.
Both systems are part of a campus-wide enhancement plan initiated for ASU athletics facilities last winter.
In
Fort Worth, home of the TCU Horned Frogs, the current football scoring system, which includes an older-model Daktronics video display, was installed in 2002. The new setup will use exclusive Daktronics HD-X light LED technology and will increase overall picture resolution and quality by reducing pixel line spacing from 23 to 12 mm.
The video display will measure about 17 feet high by 30 feet wide and will include a feature not commonly seen in the sports-video market: the system will be modular, allowing the display to be removed and reinstalled if needed. A rental company has already signed on to use the screen once the football season is over.
