New AV system installed at Auburn Arena

Audiences attending events at Auburn Arena on the campus of Auburn University in Alabama are in-store for a new audio-visual entertainment experience.

Daktronics has designed, manufactured and recently installed a new centre-hung LED display system and custom audio system.

The project also marks the return of a Daktronics on-site event producer to run events at Auburn facilities.

Auburn director of athletics Allen Greene said:

The partnership with Daktronics reinforces our commitment to elevate the in-game experience of our fans and student-athletes. The new audiovisual system will bring to life every dunk, 3-pointer, floor routine and volleyball point, making each competition at Auburn Arena even more of a must-see event.

The new centre-hung features one continuous LED video display that curves around 360-degrees of the suspended structure for a complete experience for every seat.

It measures nearly 15ft tall by 72ft around.

A lower ring display measures 3ft tall by 65.5ft in circumference. These two LED displays feature 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing to bring crisp, clear imagery to audiences at every event.

A custom audio system was included with the installation of the LED centre-hung system and is integrated into the overall production system at Auburn Arena. The new system provides full-range sound reproduction and delivers clear and intelligible speech for a complete audiovisual experience throughout the arena.

Glen Marts, Daktronics sales representative said:

This installation brings Auburn Arena to a complete supersystem including the centerhung, audio system, ribbon display, scorer’s tables and scoring system to create the best game-day experience possible for their fans.

We’re proud to continue our longstanding partnership with Auburn University and Auburn Athletics with this new installation on campus.

The video display on the centre-hung is capable of variable content zoning which allows it to show one large image or to be divided into multiple different zones. These zones can show any combination of live videos, instant replays, up-to-the-minute statistics and game information, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

The on-site Daktronics event producer will manage the game-day production responsibilities including running the super system at Auburn Arena and LED video displays and audio systems at other venues on campus during live events. From running live video on the displays to sponsored game-breaks, this person will ensure the show is entertaining and engaging for all those in attendance.
