Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center Outfitted with Daktronics Displays, Control System

The KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, KY, opened its doors earlier this month complete with an integrated display system provided by Daktronics. The new system incorporates large screen LED displays within the seating bowl, professional grade LCD screens, and a control system that will deliver HD digital content throughout the venue.

The new multipurpose arena features a venue-wide digital media display network. The IPTV solution delivers multiple live content channels to any display in the venue. The solution is built around a computer network structure, so it can be expanded to accommodate nearly any form of digital media. Content can be distributed to over 400 large LCD screens in the suites, concession, concourse, and club areas.

The Daktronics IPTV systems enables users to connect to a complete collection of news wires, databases, and scoring devices to instantly present up-to-the-minute scores, statistics, news, and information to any IPTV channel. Different channels can offer different information simultaneously from live video to data focused for fantasy leagues.

The system also offers allows the facility to provide sponsor exclusivity. Operators have the ability to override content on any or all LED or LCD displays in the arena to show a sponsor’s logo or advertisement, guaranteeing venue-wide exposure for marketing partners, and increased revenue opportunities for the property and its tenants.

At the center of the control solution will be the company’s new Show Control system, with the ability to take in various video, scoring, timing, statistical data and out-of-town scores, and point of sale information. With the Show Control system, all displays across the network can be turned on or off, control their volume, or change the channel so all the displays show the same piece of content.
