Mississippi State is partnering with Daktronics, Inc., to provide an integrated LED high-definition centerhung video display system for Humphrey Coliseum that will be ready for the 2014-15 men’s and women’s basketball seasons.
The system includes four main video displays and two ring displays suspended above the court to keep fans informed and entertained throughout every event. The display is 50 percent larger than the board being replaced in Humphrey Coliseum. Construction is slated to begin this summer.
“We are excited to announce this partnership with Daktronics,” said Scott Wetherbee, MSU Senior Associate Athletic Director for External Affairs. “Our goal is to continually improve the fan experience here at Mississippi State. With the new technology, the high definition LED video board will enhance our fan experience to all who visit Humphrey Coliseum.”
The four main video displays of the centerhung will feature tight 6 millimeter line spacing and measure more than 8 feet high by 15.5 feet wide. The display will incorporate excellent contrast for crisp, clear imagery while providing wide angle visibility to ensure every seat has a great view.
The middle ring display will measure 2 feet high by more than 66 feet wide. The bottom ring display will measure 2 feet high by more than 62 feet wide. Both ring displays will feature 10 millimeter line spacing and provide additional statistics and other game information. They also provide options for sponsors to be highlighted throughout the event or at select moments of the event.
“Daktronics is proud to partner with Mississippi State on this project,” said Andrew Rice, Daktronics sales representative. “The state-of-the-art technology being installed at the Humphrey Coliseum will greatly enhance their fan experience. Daktronics looks forward to a long-term partnership with Mississippi State.”
The installation includes Daktronics powerful, industry Show Control System which provides a combination of display control software, world-class video processing, data integration and playback hardware in one user-friendly production solution.
