Ole Miss to boast largest center-hung video board in college basketball

Post by rebeljim » Mon Aug 31, 2015 12:26 pm

The Pavilion at Ole Miss will feature the largest center-hung video display board in college sports when it opens in January, Ole Miss Athletics Director Ross Bjork announced Monday.

Ole Miss worked with Daktronics to design, manufacture and install the video display system, which features a total of roughly 2,255 square feet of active LED display space. The center-hung configuration will consist of 11 video displays for a total of more than 3.6 million LEDs. It includes four main video displays, each measuring approximately 11.5 feet high by 22 feet wide, and four corner displays each measuring approximately 13.5 feet high by 5 feet wide.

"We're excited to partner with Daktronics to bring the largest center-hung video board in college basketball to The Pavilion at Ole Miss," Bjork said. "The amenities of the Pavilion, especially the video and audio experience, will provide our fans with a world class entertainment destination in heart of the most beautiful campus in America."

The displays feature a tight 6 millimeter line spacing and wide angle visibility ensuring a clear, crisp image from any seat in the facility. Variable content zoning allows the displays to show a single large image or be divided into separate windows filled with any combination of live video, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics, animations, scoring information and sponsor highlights.

Three ring displays will be incorporated in the center-hung configuration. They will measure roughly 3 feet high by 116.5 feet in circumference, 4 feet high by 91.5 feet in circumference and 3 feet high by 83 feet in circumference. All of the ring displays feature 10 millimeter line spacing. The installation will also include a large fascia display with 15 millimeter line spacing that measures roughly 2.5 feet high by 586 feet wide and a box office display with a 6 millimeter line spacing that measures roughly 9 feet high by 16 feet wide. These displays can be used to show versatile content to enhance the game-day atmosphere and highlight sponsors.

"We're proud to partner with Ole Miss to bring a top-notch video display system that will contribute to a great game-day atmosphere," said Daktronics Vice President of Live Events Jay Parker. "As the largest center-hung project we've ever done in the college market, we're excited to see the final installation having a positive impact for the fans early in 2016."

"It was a lot of fun to work on this project and we're honored to continue our long-standing partnership with Ole Miss athletics," added Andrew Rice, Daktronics sales representative.

The Rebels will begin a new era in the $95 million Pavilion at Ole Miss Jan. 7 when they welcome the Alabama Crimson Tide to Oxford as part of the Grand Opening Weekend on campus. Ole Miss will also host Georgia Jan. 9 in the Pavilion, while the Rebel women will play Florida Jan. 10 as part of the celebration.

A new arena AND the biggest video board?

How are ALL the other teams going to be able to field a basketball team now that ALL the recruits will want to come to Ole Miss.

I can see the headline now:

"Recruits turned away from Ole Miss decide to forego college and play in Europe. Ole Miss has no one to play"

I'm kidding, but you know State won't let this stand. Next year they will have one so big there won't be room for full court shots at the end of games b/c the board will be in the way.
