Electronic company Daktronics of Brookings, South Dakota (US) was selected to manufacture and install all new end wall video displays and more than 3,000 linear feet of ribbon displays at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California, US.

‘Daktronics’ stated that the project was installed over the Summer months during the arena’s first phase of renovations and will be used to entertain fans, show statistics, run promotions, and sponsorship inventory during the National Basketball Association (NBA) teams Los Angeles Lakers, Los Angeles Clippers, the National Hockey League (NHL) team Los Angeles Kings, and the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) team Los Angeles Sparks games starting this season.

The 20,000-capacity Crypto.com Arena is a multipurpose arena in Downtown Los Angeles, US. Adjacent to the L.A. Live development, it is located next to the Los Angeles Convention Center complex along Figueroa Street.

The Crypto.com Arena has undoubtedly developed an unrivaled reputation for excellence having established itself as one of the world’s busiest and most successful venues in the world. As the home of four professional sports franchises – the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers, the Los Angeles Kings, and the Los Angeles Sparks – the Crypto.com Arena has proven to be a home court advantage for the local teams. The AEG-owned and -operated arena continues to distinguish itself as the host of major, high-profile events of national and international distinction.

Hosting over 250 events a year, the arena’s reputation for world-class amenities, features and commitment to quality of service and the guest experience is second to none.

Said Lee Zeidman, President, Crypto.com Arena, “We are incredibly excited to be working with Daktronics and upgrading our LED displays throughout the arena and truly elevating the fans’ experience with three levels of LED ribbon boards and two large end wall video displays.”

‘Daktronics’ further stated to bring new light to each end of the arena, new LED end wall video displays have been installed. Each display features 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing and measures approximately 21 feet high by 65.5 feet wide. Each display is capable of variable content zoning allowing each to show one large image or to be divided into multiple zones to show any combination of live video, instant replays, statistics, graphics, animations, and sponsorship messages.

Three new ribbon displays have been installed inside the Crypto.com Arena, approximately triple the amount of linear feet of ribbon displays than the venue had previously. Each ribbon display has been installed along different levels of the seating fascia to bring additional game information and graphics to provide a fully immersive entertainment experience for event attendees. Each ribbon features 5.9-millimeter pixel spacing and measures approximately 2.5 feet high with the lower level ribbon measuring 894 feet wide, the mid-level ribbon measuring 1,076 feet wide and the upper level ribbon measuring 1,093 feet wide.

Said Jay Parker, Daktronics Vice-President of Live Events, “We’re continually building and delivering LED solutions for the largest event venues in the world, and this project coming together at Crypto.com Arena highlights the work we strive for on a daily basis. We’re excited to partner with the venue and their project teams to make their live event experience something special for fans and audiences in Los Angeles.”
