Texas Upgrades Basketball, Softball Scoreboards

The University of Texas has upgraded its basketball and
softball facilities with integrated scoring and display systems from
Daktronics. A new center-hung scoring and video display system has been
installed in the Frank C. Erwin Jr. Special Events
Center, and a new 11- by
34-foot PS-23 LED video display has been added to the outfield at Red &
Charline McCombs Field.
Daktronics
retrofitted the Longhorns’ old system in the Erwin Center
with a total of nine light-emitting-diode video displays.
Four
Daktronics PS-23 LED video displays measuring approximately 6 feet high by 22
feet wide sit at the top of UT’s new basketball centerpiece. A PS-10 LED video
display measuring 10 feet high by 13 feet wide rests in the center of each side
of the new system and will be used to show live and recorded video, fan
entertainment, scoring, and advertising information.
An LED
video-display ring measuring approximately 3 feet tall by 69 feet in
circumference completes the Longhorn’s upgraded center-hung system, which has
overlooked every Texas
home basketball game this season.
The
arena’s fascia now supports an LED display measuring 2 feet tall by more than
760 feet wide. A video marquee using Daktronics PS-12 technology greets patrons
outside the Erwin
Center and keeps them
updated on arena events.
These
basketball and softball installations come as additions to the Daktronics
equipment previously installed at the Longhorns’ football, baseball, aquatics,
and track/soccer facilities.
