Aviva Stadium completes technology upgrade with Daktronics displays
South display and ribbon displays totalilng more than 400 square metres installed for 2020
Daktronics has continued a partnership with Aviva Stadium to install three new LED displays totalling more than 400 square metres in Dublin ahead of the UEFA Championships this summer. The new displays complete a fan experience improvement plan that began with two north-end video displays installed in 2017.
“We have amazing events at Aviva Stadium which are supplemented by sound and visual experiences,” said Martin Murphey, stadium director for Aviva Stadium. “Enhancing the fan experience is essential. Even though we are a relatively new stadium, we have invested in the new Daktronics HD screens to provide exceptional images of the action on the pitch.”
The south end display measures 5.85 metres high by 18.65 metres wide. One ribbon display sits above the tunnel entrance to the pitch and measures 0.73 metres high by 4.02 metres wide. The main stadium ribbon display measures 0.73 metres high by 393.90 metres wide. These displays join two identical north end video displays each measuring 5.85 metres high by 14.99 metres wide.
All of these displays feature 13HD pixel layouts to bring exceptional image clarity and contrast to every seat in the stadium. The north and south end video displays are capable of variable content zoning which allows each display to show one large image or to show multiple zones of differing content.
The installation is supported by Daktronics’ on-island maintenance facility in Ennistymon, Co. Clare. The company also has a service partnership with electronics specialist company CT Ireland (formerly ION Solutions), that provides on-site support to Aviva Stadium.
