New video display to enhance Coors Event Center

The University of Colorado has picked Daktronics to design, manufacture and install a rectangular centre-hung system featuring four LED video displays.

The installation, totaling nearly 700ft, will be completed this summer and entertaining Buffs fans at Coors Event Center in Boulder, Colorado, this fall.

The new centre-hung displays will all feature 6-millimeter line spacing with two sideline-facing displays measuring approximately 11.5 feet high by 20 feet wide and baseline-facing displays measuring approximately 8.5 feet high by 14.5 feet wide.

Four corner logo signs, two upper “Coors Event Center” signs and two lower “Buffs” signs complete the nearly 14-foot-tall by 31-foot-wide centre-hung configuration.

Matt Biggers, chief marketing officer for the Buffaloes, said:

We are excited to continue to improve upon the fan experience for all of our events at the Coors Events Center. These new state-of-the-art video boards will allow our fans to enjoy CU Athletics’ events in a whole new way. We are excited to partner with Daktronics to bring the entertainment value to a whole new level for Buffs fans.

The LED video displays provide crisp clear imagery to every seat in the area. They are capable of variable content zoning, allowing them to show one large image or to be sectioned into multiple windows to show any combination of live video, instant replays, scoring and statistics, graphics and animations, and sponsorship messages.

Eric Cain, Daktronics sales representative, said:

It has been an honour to work with our friends at CU Boulder to upgrade the technology inside Coors Event Center. From the early stages of the project, it became clear that CU Athletics is committed to enhancing the experience for Buff fans in the event centre, all the while continuing to invest in state-of-the-art facilities for their student athletes.

These four high-resolution video displays – the same technology we installed at the Pepsi Center – will forever change the visual experience for every seat in the building. Thank you to CU for selecting Daktronics as your USA partner. We look forward to serving you for the lifetime of this system.
