Early in 2019, the University of Connecticut unveiled the Werth Family Basketball Champions Center, a project headed by Dimensional Innovations, who selected Daktronics for the LED video portion of the project to bring elite technology to an elite space in the university’s venue. Implementing three displays with narrow pixel pitches of 2.5-millimeter line spacing provides a close-viewing technology to connect and engage with visitors in the space, as they look through the championship accolades of the University of Connecticut.
Two LED displays measure 21-feet-high by 10-feet-wide and are positioned along the staircases in the lobby of the Champions Center. A single display measuring 9-feet-high by 16-feet-wide is mounted to the main wall to provide a focal point for branding and showcasing the program’s success.
“The Daktronics team worked with us every step of the way of this project, beginning in our early conceptual design all the way through installation,” says Curtis Walker, Technology Director for Dimensional Innovations. “We couldn’t imagine doing walls of this scale with a different product. We have high expectations for our final product and Daktronics exceeded during every phase.”
