For Gold Coast Stadium’s official opening on May 28, 2011, Daktronics is providing new LED displays to stream live video, graphics, and statistics.
The main display will feature Daktronics DVX-15HD technology. Measuring approximately 8.5 meters high x 23.0 meters wide, the new display has the ability to not only operate as an independent LED screen but can also be sectioned off into windows to show an array of statistics, information, graphics, and animations. The 200 sq/m videoboard will be located behind the goals at the northern end of the stadium, allowing more than 90% of attendees in the horseshoe shaped seating bowl a clear view of the high resolution imagery.
“This is a great opportunity to work with Gold Coast Stadium and the Australia Football League (AFL), using our latest DVX technology in a premier stadium in Australia,“ said Blair Robertson, general manager of Daktronics Australia.
“We are excited to be working with Daktronics to install a high-definition videoboard at Gold Coast Stadium. We believe it will be one of the highlight pieces of infrastructure at the venue and will enhance the fan experience at Gold Coast Suns AFL matches and other sporting events,” said Simon Gorr, stadium development manager at the AFL.
Along with this display, there will be an LED message center mounted at the southern end of the stadium capable of showing scores, logos, graphics, photos,
