Gentile Arena introducing centerhung ring and end wall LED displays

Loyola University Chicago has partnered with Daktronics for the manufacture and installation of 10 LED displays for Gentile Arena in Chicago, Illinois. The raft of new displays includes a unique centerhung, and is scheduled to be completed this autumn. 

“We are very pleased to be partnering with Daktronics on the significant digital enhancements throughout Gentile Arena,” said 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 LED ‘space ring’ display, a single ring-shaped display hanging above the center of the court, will feature 10mm line spacing and measure 4ft high by 81ft in circumference. The new display will show statistics and graphics throughout events.

The new main display will be mounted on the east end of the arena and measure nearly 10ft high by 24ft wide. It will feature 6mm line spacing for excellent image clarity and contrast for student-athletes and fans throughout the arena.

“It’s exciting to be part of this project for a such a great customer in Loyola University Chicago,” said Joey Hulsebus, Daktronics sales representative. “The overall production of the end wall video displays combined with the unique ring display will provide a great atmosphere for the university and its fans. We’re looking forward to seeing the completed installation this autumn.”

A pair of auxiliary displays – one mounted on each side of the main display – will each measure approximately 8ft high by 19ft wide. These displays will feature 10mm line spacing and provide supplemental information to the main display.

Two LED vomitory displays and four court-side LED scorer’s table displays are also included with the installation. One vomitory display will be mounted above the entrances to the playing floor at each end of the arena – each display will measure approximately 3ft high by 18ft wide. The scorer’s tables will measure roughly 2ft high by 9ft wide. All six of these will include 10mm line spacing.

The end wall video displays are capable of variable content zoning which allows them to show one large video image or to be divided into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

The university will also receive content produced by Daktronics Creative Services as part of the installation project.
