Orlando's new Amway Center to feature Daktronics integrated display system

Daktronics will provide an integrated scoring, video and advertising display system for the new Amway Center, which is scheduled to open in Orlando, Florida, USA, in the autumn of 2010. Daktronics will design and manufacture more than 50 full-colour LED displays for the Amway Center, including one of the world’s largest suspended scoreboards. Installation of the first displays will begin in early 2010.

The 42 x 41 x 41ft centre-hung scoreboard will include four primary high-definition LED video displays (approximately 17 x 24ft), eight auxiliary video/scoring/statistics displays, and two LED ring displays. All of the centre-hung digital displays use high-resolution 6mm surface-mount LED pixel technology.

Complementing the primary scoreboard will be two LED ribbon boards mounted on the interior fascia of the seating decks. One 360° display will encircle the entire seating bowl and measure more than 1,100ft in circumference, the second will measure more than 750ft in length. Daktronics’ LED ribbon boards present motion graphics and real-time content including in-game statistics, scores, closed captioning information, animation and video clips. Both ribbon displays will take advantage of Daktronics’ patented ProRail attachment system.

There will also be a network of 27 smaller full-colour digital displays, providing additional information and sponsor coverage at various entrances between the seating bowl and concourse, as well as other gathering areas. The integrated display system will continue on the outside the building, with Daktronics’ ProPixel freeform LED technology mounted in an open-air concourse area. This exterior display, measuring approximately 46 x 54ft, is designed to reach motorists travelling past the Amway Center on Interstate 4. A curved 8 x 80ft LED display on the building’s corner tower will promote events and other items to the public, using Daktronics HD-12 technology. Additional full-colour HD-12 exterior displays include a digital marquee attached to the parking garage and one above the box office area. In addition, 14 smaller flat-panel displays will be mounted near ticket windows to direct ticket buyers to the correct windows for quick service, and will also provide additional information.

The video control room will feature Daktronics’ new Show Control System. The software suite allows users to design, edit and produce a variety of colourful digital content and deliver clips to displays throughout the venue. The system works with other Daktronics control components – including the scoring, timing and statistics systems – to keep track of the sporting action. Daktronics’ NBA statistical interface provides the ability to present player and team statistics in text and graphic formats. Transparent LED shot/game clocks, time expiration light strips on the backboards, 41 digital clocks, and scoreboards for the basketball practice court are also part of the integrated system.
