Schine Student Center features a new curved, narrow pixel pitch LED media wall as the 2021 semester begins

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Sept. 2, 2021 – To deliver a new curved LED video wall for Syracuse University’s Schine Student Center, Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, partnered with Diversified to design, manufacture and install the school’s new media wall for the 2021 spring semester.

“As the centerpiece of the newly renovated Schine Student Center, the video wall allows us to build community through shared experiences such campus programming and athletic events,” said Christine Scollay, interim director of Syracuse University’s Student Centers & Programming Services. “The video board has helped us create a fresh and relevant space for students.”

The narrow pixel pitch LED video wall measures approximately 12.5 feet high by 14 feet wide and features 1.5-millimeter pixel spacing to deliver high-resolution imagery to students and other audiences inside the Schine Student Center. It curves to align with the architecture of the building and floor layout for a seamless design and integration
