SLU to upgrade screens at indoor sporting events
Saint Louis University (SLU) will be installing its new integrated scoring and display system at its indoor arena throughout the next few months, with work expected to be completed by the spring of 2008.
The new Chaifetz Arena, future home of Billiken basketball and volleyball, as well as a host of other events, will soon be encircled by a more than 2000sq-ft, full-color digital LED fascia display. This display will constantly be updating fans with game information and provide an effective advertising solution. With 360 degrees of coverage throughout the arena, this display will be visible to each and every Billiken fan.
The digital display circumscribing Chaifetz Arena is just one of many Daktronics products being installed at the arena. Also being added over the Billikens' home court will be four custom scoring and video boards, complete with the latest LED video technology capable of showing live action, replay footage and player information. Each board will measure more than 460sq-ft, which makes them some of the largest collegiate basketball displays in the Midwest.
