On 14th of April, the company announced that they will design, manufacture and install a new LED video display system for the Minnesota Timberwolves and Target Center. According to Daktronics, the facility will feature nearly 800 square meters of LED display space with a 15-display center-hung configuration highlighting the installation.
Fans will be blown away by this scoreboard,”- said Ted Johnson, the Timberwolves' chief strategy, and development officer. “Every person who walks into the arena will immediately be impressed and feel the energy buzzing through the crowd. With state-of-the-art technology, the scoreboard sets the new standard for in-arena viewing.”
The 15-display center-hung configuration will feature nearly 400 square meters of displays space to inform and entertain fans at every event held at Target Center.
Each of the four main displays measures approximately 5.4m high by 10m wide and features 6mm line spacing. They are capable of variable content zoning for flexible content displaying, either as one large image or divided into multiple windows.
Above the main displays will be four auxiliary displays, each measuring 1.8m high by 10m wide. A ring display of 1.2m high and 61m in circumference will be located above the main and auxiliary displays. These five displays will feature 10mm line spacing and will provide complimentary content to the main displays.
Six displays will be installed underside of the center-hung to appeal to seats closer to the court; two 6mm facing the sidelines and four 10mm facing each side of the court.
In addition to this, the installation includes 18 meters of LED scorer’s table displays, four auxiliary displays for the corners of the arena, eight vomitory displays above the entrances to the main seating bowl, two vomitory displays above player entrances, a ticket window display and two marquee displays outside the venue to welcome fans as they arrive on game day.
Supplementing the installation will be the company’s Show Control System, which is a combination of display control software, video processing, data integration and playback hardware.
