Daktronics delivers new video display for London Olympic legacy venue
Daktronics has designed, manufactured and installed a new video display for Lee Valley VeloPark, a multi-purpose London venue that in the past has hosted Olympic cycling events at the indoor velodrome. The installation prepares the venue to host the 2016 UCI Track Cycling World Championships.
“Lee Valley VeloPark has been able to purchase audio-visual equipment, due to match funding from Sport England,” said senior activation manager Dan Buck. “This supports the venue operation to provide top quality corporate days, as well as enhancing our large scale events.
“We’ve been very happy with the service provided to us by Daktronics. Not only have they installed fantastic screens, but the support given throughout the entire process has allowed us to deliver brilliant facilities and content management within our budget.”
The installation includes four LED video displays, one in each corner of the indoor velodrome. The displays will provide live video, replays, welcome messages and advertising as they engage fans in the competition. Each display measures 3.17 metres high by 5.71 metres wide and features 10 millimetre line spacing to provide excellent clarity and contrast to enhance every image, video, graphic or animation that is shown.
Daktronics video display technology with custom control system integrates with Swiss Timing’s standard track timing technology to provide the same statistical timing and information track fans have come to expect at such events.
“Daktronics is very proud to be involved with such an iconic venue,” said Ewan Prentice, Daktronics Europe regional sales. “Located in the Queen Elzabeth Olympic Park and regarded as the World’s fastest velodrome track, to know that Daktronics can be a small part of the visitor experience is great recognition for our company. Our integration with Swiss Timing and ability to interface with the building’s IPTV solution further highlights our capabilities of offering our users a fully integrated system.”
