University of Miami adding LED system to BankUnited Center

BROOKINGS, S.D. – Hurricanes fans will soon have added reason for excitement as Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has partnered with the University of Miami to design, manufacture and install a new centerhung LED video display system at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Florida. With installation beginning earlier this November, Hurricanes’ basketball teams will be enjoying the new system by early 2015.

“We are excited to have a new video/scoreboard at the BankUnited Center,” said Tim Wise, Senior Associate Athletic Director, Facilities and Event Operations. “The new Daktronics system will be a great enhancement to the fan and student-athlete experience. Everyone will love the new features and how this system will help to create a true home court advantage. We have enjoyed a long relationship with Daktronics and it is great working with them on this project.”

The centerhung display will measure approximately 10.5 feet high by 92.5 feet wide and wrap around the entire square-shaped structure with seamless corners. It will feature 10 millimeter line spacing and provide excellent image clarity and contrast to every seat in the arena.

The display can be used as one full video image around the entire structure or for four sides of full video and instant replays. It can also be separated into multiple zones or sections to show any combination of video, statistics, graphics and sponsor information.

At the bottom of the structure, Daktronics will install a ring display that measures approximately 2 feet high by 71.5 feet in circumference. It will feature 15 millimeter line spacing and will provide the opportunity to showcase sponsors throughout events as well as displaying up-to-the-minute statistics and other game information.

“We are honored that the University of Miami has chosen to once again partner with Daktronics,” said Mike Kempany, Daktronics sales representative. “This long-awaited upgrade will breathe new life into Bank United Center for Hurricanes games and other events. With the installation of a larger hoist, Miami was able to take on their new exciting design while providing a much larger video canvas for the ultimate game-day experience. We look forward to witnessing the reaction of the fans!”

Daktronics LED video and messaging display technology offers a long lifetime with minimal maintenance and low power consumption, providing value and excitement for years to come.
