A Daktronics scoreboard
Indiana University is giving Branch McCracken Court at Assembly Hall a facelift with a new integrated scoring and video display system that will be designed, built and installed in time for the Hoosiers’ first home basketball game this fall.
IU Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Communications, negotiated the agreement to provide funding for the new $2 million Daktronics system.
The center-hung display will measure about 28ft x 20ft wide. Each of the four sides will incorporate high-resolution ProStar VideoPlus technology. Five additional full-color LED displays will be incorporated into the center-hung structure to present additional video, graphics, scoring, statistics and sponsor related messages.
ProStar VideoPlus technology relies on RGB LED technology to present live and recorded video images, animation and graphics with wide-angle visibility. Assembly Hall will use the Daktronics ProTable technology courtside. Five sections of digital scorers tables, each measuring nearly 10ft wide, can be controlled individually or positioned together as one large continuous courtside display.
The deal also includes four auxiliary portal scoreboards, three-sided shot clocks and digital game clocks — all using programmable LED technology.
