Daktronics gives Texas Longhorn sports new displays
Daktronics has designed, manufactured and installed integrated scoring and display systems for the University of Texas’ basketball and softball facilities in Austin, TX.
A new center-hung scoring and video display system was installed in the Frank C. Erwin, Jr., Special Events Center. Daktronics retrofit the Longhorns’ old system with a total of nine LED video displays.
Four Daktronics PS-23 LED video displays measuring approximately 6ft by 22ft sit at the top of the university’s new basketball centerpiece. A Daktronics PS-10 LED video display measuring approximately 10ft by 13ft rests in the center of each side of the new system and will be used to show live and recorded video, fan entertainment, scoring and advertising information.
An LED video display ring measuring approximately 3ft by 69ft in circumference completes the Longhorn’s upgraded center-hung system, which has been used for every Texas home basketball game this season.
The arena’s fascia now supports an LED video display measuring 2ft by more than 760ft. A video marquee using Daktronics PS-12 technology greets patrons outside the Erwin Center and keeps them updated on arena events.
The company also provided a new scoring and video display system for Red & Charline McCombs Field in Austin. The PS-23 LED video display installed in the outfield measures approximately 11ft by 34ft.
