Brookings, South Dakota-based LED display manufacturer Daktronics has been chosen to install an LED “super system” at Clemson University’s Littlejohn Coliseum.

The system will bring more than 3,000 square feet of video display space to the home of the Clemson Tigers basketball teams. The center-hung configuration will feature six displays for a total of 1,500 square feet of display space, making it one of the largest center-hungs in college basketball. All six displays feature 6-millimeter line spacing for a tight resolution, image clarity and contrast, and wide angle visibility for a clear view from any seat in the coliseum.

The two main displays will feature an outward curvature and measure approximately 15 ½’ high x 28’ wide, making them the longest curved center-hung displays in a collegiate venue. The two end displays will feature an outward curvature and measure approximately 10 ½’ high x 19’ wide. Two underside displays will be angled towards the sidelines for better viewing by courtside seats and will measure approximately 8 ½’ high by 14 ½’ wide.

The video displays are capable of variable content zoning, allowing them them to show one large image or to be sectioned into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, game information, statistics, graphics and animations and sponsorship messages.

The new system is part of a $63.5 million renovation on the arena, which opened in 1968. It just so happens that Daktronics installed its first-ever LED video display at Clemson in 1997 for the Tigers’ football team.
