Brookings, South Dakota-based LED display manufacturer Daktronics announces its installation of 10 displays inside Gentile Arena, on the campus of Loyola University Chicago.
The unique focal point of the installation is the LED "Space Ring" display, a single ring-shaped display hanging above the center of the court. It features 10-millimeter line spacing and measures 4’ high by 81’ in circumference.
“We are very pleased to be partnering with Daktronics on the significant digital enhancements throughout Gentile Arena,” says Loyola University’s senior associate athletics director for external operations Tom Sorboro. “The state-of-the-art space ring, video boards and scorer’s tables will improve the overall fan experience and increase engagement at our basketball and volleyball contests.”
The new main display will be mounted on the east end of the arena and measure nearly 10’ high x 24’ wide. The main display will feature 6-millimeter line spacing for excellent image clarity and contrast for student-athletes and fans throughout the arena.
Two auxiliary displays—one mounted on each side of the main display—will each measure approximately 8’ high x 19’ wide. These displays will feature 10-millimeter line spacing and provide supplemental information to the main display while providing versatility to the entire event production.
Two LED displays—which hang over the entrances where the players, coaches and officials come in and out—and four court-side LED scorer’s table displays are also included with the installation.
