On 29th of October the company announced its first 1.9mm indoor LED display had been installed for the longtime customer New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The installation joins over 900sqm of Daktronics’ outdoor video equipment installed at Gillette Stadium previously.
The display measures 1.5m high by 3m wide and serves as a backdrop for Patriots' press conferences. Rapid processing technology allows for the fast-moving video content to be viewed from a close distance, the company said. The display belongs to an Indoor High-Resolution product line and is said to consume half as much power as an industry standard solution.
Gillette Stadium deploys a variety of Daktronics LED video technologies installed throughout the venue. In January 2015, the stadium enhanced its branding signs with the company’s freeform LED technology. The "Gillette" logos located above the end zone displays were digitized with the puck-shaped LED elements with the 35mm line spacing. Also in 2015 the stadium acquired three large ribbon displays installed along its seating areas and a set of LED video displays, all the equipment featuring 15HD line spacing.
In 2010, the stadium had its video replay system replaced with giant LED boards, the south one measuring 12.6m high by 50m wide and the north one of 13m high by 30m wide. The south end zone configuration is a seamless arrangement of three large displays, able to be controlled as multiple zones or as a single digital canvas.
Located in Foxborough, Massachusetts, Gillette Stadium is the premier sports and entertainment venue in New England. With the capacity of 68,756 seats, the stadium is the full-time home of the NFL’s New England Patriots. Gillette Stadium is also the home field of the New England Revolution of Major League Soccer and hosts a variety of other marquee sports events, including international soccer matches, NCAA championships, and high school football super bowls.
