Those attending occasions at South Point’s Arena and Equestrian Center can now stare up at a brand-new video display system almost 3 times as large as the previous setup.
Daktronics, a leading provider of large-format LED video display screens and sports scoring systems, lags the four-sided video display system. The 13,797-pound display screen’s 4-millimeter line spacing is among the tightest LED resolutions of any center-hung video board in any arena in the nation, South Point authorities said in a press release. It changes the previous Daktronics center-hung technology installed in 2006.
Additionally, two bigger “sideline” screens step 12.5 feet high by 21.5 feet wide, while the two smaller “end zone” screens measure 14 feet high by 9.5 feet broad.
The new display screens are each efficient in variable content zoning, allowing each to show one big image or numerous windows of content, South Point officials said. The system can show combinations of live video, instant replays, real-time event results and data, graphics and animations and sponsorship messages.
Owner Michael Gaughan and South Point’s relationship with Daktronics started prior to the property opened in December 2005, stated Steve Stallworth, South Point Arena and Equestrian Center general supervisor.
” When he initially built the Orleans Arena, he utilized Daktronics exclusively and purchased the very first ‘ring beam’ LED fascia in Nevada at that time,” Stallworth said. “When he opened the South Point, he bought Daktronics screens for the arena and his cutting edge competition Bowling Plaza.”
The South Point Arena and Equestrian Center has hosted the World Series of Group Roping, the Specialist Bull Riders’ Speed Trip Finals and the Indian National Finals Rodeo. It will host more than 40 weeks of equestrian occasions in 2018 in addition to occasions such as the World Archery Festival, Mecum Motorcycle Auction next week, U.S.A Wrestling and collegiate basketball tournaments.
