Three 2.5-millimeter LED displays installed at University of Connecticut’s Hall of Champions in 2019
BROOKINGS, S.D. – Apr. 30, 2019 – Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with Dimensional Innovations (DI), an experience design, technology and fabrication firm, to bring new LED video displays to life for the University of Connecticut’s Hall of Champions on campus in Storrs, Connecticut.
“The Daktronics team worked with us every step up of the way of this project, beginning in our early conceptual design all the way through installation,” said Curtis Walker, technology director for Dimensional Innovations. “We couldn’t imagine doing walls of this scale with a different product. We have high expectations for our final product and Daktronics exceeded these during every phase.”
Working closely with DI, Daktronics manufactured and provided three narrow pixel pitch displays featuring 2.5-millimeter line spacing. Two displays measure more than 21 feet high by 10 feet wide and are positioned along the staircases in the lobby of the Hall of Champions. A single display measuring 9 feet high by 16 feet wide is mounted to the main wall in the hall.
These displays are positioned to connect and engage with visitors in the space as they look through the championship accolades of the University of Connecticut.
“Dimensional Innovations developed a killer design concept for the new UConn Hall of Champions,” said Steve Bayer, Daktronics special projects director. “A key piece of their integration scope was sourcing the LED displays. #UConnNation has high expectations and DI knew they could count on Daktronics to deliver the best displays the industry has to offer.”
Daktronics works with AV integrators in various applications to bring LED installations from the idea phase to reality.
